When the children are in the gyrosphere watching the instructional video by Jimmy Fallon, he mentions the sphere shell is comprised of "aluminum oxynitride" for enhanced durability (a.k.a. transparent aluminum). This fictional material was originally popularized in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986), and was an engineering staple in the twenty-third century for its remarkable properties. A single 60x10 foot sheet could withstand the pressure of 18,000 cubic feet of water while being only one inch thick. Ironically, aluminum oxynitride was recently invented. It is comprised of aluminum, oxygen, and nitrogen, and is commercially used as heavy ballistics glass armor protection. It can stop a .50 caliber armor-piercing round. See more »
During the I. Rex attack of Gray and Zach in the gyrosphere, the vehicle is struck and sent spinning rapidly. The close-up of the boys suggests they feel little to no centrifugal force despite the speed of their spinning being evident from the wide shots. Their unrestrained heads remain upright and in control at all times. See more »
It's been awhile I think that I have labeled a film "a thrill ride" but seriously though this film was a real thrill ride. It takes place about twenty years after the events of the first film. There is now a functioning theme park on the original island. They get thousands of guest and they have tons of money making attractions. But then the people who run the park get a little greedy wanting to make more money and bring in more people so they create a new attraction, one that is more dangerous and scarier then the T-Rex. This film was fantastic. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard lead this film very well almost as a good as Sam Neill and Laura Dern did in the first film. The kids as well Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins did a good job. Colin Trevorrow also was a great choice to helm this film and he did a fantastic job directing. Now yes this film was a sequel and a great one at that. It's been a long time since I have felt that a sequel is just as good as its original. This film to me is really good and just as good as the first film. The special effects were great and one of the best parts was the music. I have been a Jurassic Park fan since I was a little kid and this is actually the first of franchise that I have seen in theaters as well. So this was definitely an amazing experience for me and hearing that original score in this film literally gave me goosebumps.
