Five Points That Make The Movie A Must Watch:


#1. This is to the current generation what Jurassic Park was for us- in terms of coming together of effects that technology lends to a movie, the curiosity that man inherently has for dinosaurs- the extinct beasts from the past, the commercial market that drives man's greed, and most of all- man's need to explore science, to push the envelope- to the point of obliterating the fine line between science for need and the science for adventure.

#2. The family angle- The movie provides an opportunity for the parents, fans of the original Jurassic Park of 1993, to bond with their kids over the Jurassic Park trilogy. Since the movie releases as the summer break starts, the timing is perfect for the family to catch up on Jurassic Park (1993), The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), and Jurassic Park III (2001). More so, if extended family is visiting. What can be greater fun than to watch the series with cousins ranging in ages, and feeling scared together? The time will be well spent because the movie pays homage to others in the series.

#3. Siblings angle- the two brothers in the movie, played by Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins, certainly remind the constantly skirmishing siblings that at the end of the day, brothers are forever. The actors have done an awesome job of conveying that bond to the audience. Their chemistry is believable, relatable and touching.

#4. The actors- of course, Chris Pratt has done an awesome job. Having watched him in the Parks And Recreation series, always knew that he is an excellent actor, but it was refreshing to see him in an entirely different role from what we are used to. Jake Johnson from the New Girl looked the same as his TV avatar, but it was good to see him there. Bryce has done a good job too.

#5. Irrfan Khan- for the desi audience, Irrfan Khan makes the movie a must watch because he plays a major role in the movie. He is the owner of the Jurassic World, Simon Masrani. There is no explanation given regarding his accent and heritage and that is what makes it in tune with today's times. Irrfan Khan paves the way for all people of South Asian descent who are interested in an acting career to dare to dream big. He looks confident- with himself, his skin, his accent.


WHAT IS NOT GOOD ...


Although the genetic hybrid angle is interesting, thought- provoking and ingenious, the film falls short in two respect-

1. The bloodcurdling, spine-chilling T-Tex from the previous Jurassic series are reduced to looking tame and in some scenes, lame even.

2. The new genetically-modified dinosaur called Indominus rex is no doubt terrifying but the plot to control it isn't implemented convincingly because of the #1 point above.


WHAT DOES THE BOX OFFICE COLLECTIONS SAY ABOUT THE MOVIE?

Jurassic World collected more than $500 million in global box office gross in its opening weekend— the most ever for a film. It topped the box office ranking its second weekend as well and is now set to create the record to collecting the fastest billion.


OVERALL ...

The movie is extremely scary, just the way we like it (not horror-movie scary, but thrilling terrifying). Kids will relate and reflect over the sibling bonding message and everyone will leave the theater discussing the pros and cons of the fast advancing science, the advancements made because we should versus those we are itching to make simply because we can.

As for the kids, do take your kids along (the movie is PG13) to watch this biblical epic. We went with kids (siblings and cousins) ranging in age from 6 to 16 and every one of them enjoyed the film. We felt that the fact that we had been watching the series with the kids over three days before helped as the kids knew what to expect. Also, we watched a late night show with kids cozy in their blankets and pjs. The wonderful fully reclined seats in the Columbus AMC (we were visiting family there) definitely added to our family adventure. So go ahead,  plan your family adventure soon (if you haven't already).
