Jurassic World is one of the most financially successful films of all time. The sheer spectacle of having dinosaurs battle it out while humans become food is a good enough reason to push people out of their living-rooms and into the cinemas. The intense action and visual grandeur of the film were fantastic, but some of the characters were piss-poor time-wasters. They really let this film down.
I rolled my eyes a lot during this film, but there are some truly great elements in it. I saw Jurassic Park as a young boy, yet even then it didn't make me feel as tense as Jurassic World. What Jurassic Park lacked, Jurassic World fixed. However, Jurassic World lacked what made Jurassic Park a legendary film.
Jurassic World has been open for quite sometime and sales have plateaued somewhat due to people not being amazed by dinosaurs as much. So they had a brilliant idea to create a super-hybrid dinosaur to really bring in the customers. Guess what happens? ... The dinosaur escapes its enclosure, wreaking havoc on all in its path.

What really let this movie down was its crappy fill-in characters. Their one-dimensional, monotonous speeches made me seriously want to neck myself. I like Vincent D'Onofrio, but damn he got on my nerves in this movie. I know his character is supposed to be an asshole, but this asshole was so damn boring to listen to. The problem was, HE TALKED TOO MUCH. Don't even get me started on Irrfan Khan as the man-child billionaire. Every single line he said fell absolutely flat.
With all that being said, I still enjoyed much of the film. It had more intensity than Jurassic Park, but failed to capture the beauty and wonder within. While the characters mostly let this film down, the special effects and action are nothing short of spectacular.
