Watch out for Dinosaurs – Jurassic World

What could be worse than a brought back from the dead by DNA dinosaur?  How about one that has been genetically engineered with strands from various creatures.  With the sheer size and strength  of T Rex, colour camouflage capability of an octopus, and the hunting skills of a velociraptor all coursing through it’s veins, and goodness knows what other traits from the laboratory, it is no wonder that things went horribly wrong.


Located off the coast of Costa Rica, the Jurassic World luxury resort provides a habitat for an array of genetically engineered dinosaurs, including the vicious and intelligent Indominus Rex. When the massive creature escapes, it knows enough to rip out the GPS tracking device from it’s body and sets out on a killing spree, just because it can.  The resort is packed full of paying customers, and, just like the earlier film, a couple of kids related to one of the staff, who are running for their lives.  But they cannot escape from the island and are crowded in the buildings as all the predators run amok.

Everyone is in terrible danger and there are killings and chaos everywhere but animal wrangler Owen and the boy’s Aunt Claire, the park’s Operation Manager join forces to eventually save the public.

And here he is

It is not just the rampaging dinosaurs who are out of control, a dastardly staff member manages to steal away some dinosaur eggs to safe keeping, ready to start the park up again some time in the future.  And why not, there is always room for a sequel. 

Did we enjoy it?  Of course, it was an exciting, sitting on the edge of your seat type of film.  Or in my case, cringing down low so that the dinosaur doesn’t eat me.  With a steely eyed hero, an attractive heroine, who incidentally managed to keep her high heels on while running through the jungle, a mad scientist, several baddies, plenty of blood and gore, plus those amazing dinosaurs, what’s not to like?  It was a great film, if you like this sort of thing.  And we certainly did!
