As I discussed earlier this year, 2015 will be a fantastic year for films produced by, starring or directed by dyslexic film makers. Of all this years dyslexic made films, Jurassic World is probably the most hotly anticipated, and once again Steven Spielberg (dyslexic) takes on the role of executive producer.
The plot goes something like this. 22 years after the death and carnage cause by John Hammond’s first incarnation of the Dinosaur theme park. Someway, somehow, someone has managed to make Jurassic World a functioning visitor attraction. But after 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, the owner decides to create a new attraction to re-spark visitor interest. As you can imagine dino-mayhem ensues.
A long time coming
This film was actually 15 years in the making. After the fun of Jurassic Park III, Spielberg still needed another fix of robotic and CGI dinosaurs. So much so that he continued to play with the concept of a new film for over a decade. Famously one suggestion for the new plot included, a trained raptor squad in body armor going after drug lords in the jungle!? After many false starts, the film’s director Colin Trevorrow finally pitched Spielberg a more suitable plot and 2 years later Jurassic World was ready for our viewing pleasure.
What to expect
Reviews of this film are pretty constant across the board. Jurassic World manages to recapture some of the essence of the original adventure without being a carbon copy. The special effects are stellar and there are some great action sequences’. If you looking for a rock and rolling summer blockbuster you won’t be disappointed. If you’re looking for a plausible plot-line, you’ll be looking long and hard.
