WARNING: I don’t think there are any spoilers ahead, but who knows!
Even though I’ve seen some really awkward reviews of the movie with topics as weird as sexism complainants, in my humble opinion, the movie isn’t that sexist at all. But it doesn’t uphold a gender equality flag either. It is simply… a nice and fun movie to watch.
If you were a Jurassic Park fan in the 90’s (well, who wasn’t?) you’ll be deeply touched by the theme songs as soon as they start playing. The same goes for the raptors screeches, and the whole park running as everyone (who was a child/teenager at the mid 90’s) always imagined! It certainly gives a really nostalgic feeling, but it ends there.
The amazing visual effects presented by Industrial Light & Magic in 1993 aren’t that impressive anymore, the plot is mild, the characters aren’t as nearly well-developed as they were on the original movie. It’s basically a movie for pure nostalgia (and it serves this purpose very well, I must add).
Nevertheless, if there’s something really worthy about this new movie is the hidden disparagement of theme parks with living animals. They aren’t just “assets”, they are living creatures that MUST be respected, better yet: not used for entertainment. But left at peace to live their lives as naturally as they can.
I do recommend Jurassic World for watching. But don’t expect much, just go to the theaters with an open heart and be overwhelmed by your childhood feelings and memories.
What about you guys? Have you watched it yet? What’s your opinion?
