Jurassic World 
Enjoy the Ride
2.5/4 stars

'Jurassic World' is the sequel most fans have been waiting for. This is a streamlined action/thriller that stays true to the sic-fi adventure roots present in the first 'Jurassic Park'. Once the quick setups are done, we jump into a fast moving (and lean) plot that utilizes escalation in it's progress of action set-pieces. The movie flows like a fine breeze, giving us all the close calls and dino-fighting we could want. The effects, while a bit too reliant on CG, are top notch. The cast is filled with good actors. The direction is solid, always giving us a clear view of the action no matter how frantic the situation. There are minor thrills to be had amongst the giant F/X heavy spectacle. The story is the only area that leaves more to be desired. The characters have just enough personality to get by and none are memorable. There's little investment to the scenes attempting suspense, as a result. The whole film is more surprising than suspenseful. There are noticeable lapses in logic with character decisions and a few flat-out dumb explanations that have little effect on the narrative. Some moments should've been excised. I can forgive these things, as they never deterred from the overall fun ride that the film is presented as. I would've liked for more scientific commentary, but it's not a necessity here. My one gripe that took me out of the movie a few times was the heavy amount of references to the original 'Jurassic Park' film. Certain ones were almost borderline on breaking the fourth wall because it's so obvious that the filmmakers want you to know just how awesome the original was. I know that, now focus more on making this movie great. 'Jurassic World' is the movie equivalent to an awesome theme park ride experience. There's a mild level of excitement and fun to be had with this very serviceable sequel. A good old fashioned crowd-pleaser in the purest sense.
