Twenty-two years after the original Jurassic Park failed, the new park, also known as Jurassic World, is open for business. After years of studying genetics, the scientists on the park genetically engineer a new breed of dinosaur, the Indominus Rex. When everything goes horribly wrong, will our heroes make it off the island?Written by
Since the code names of the raptors are Blue, Charlie, Delta, and Echo that seems to indicate there's an Alpha, which is revealed to be Owen. It's likely that Owen deliberately avoided using that name to prevent confusion when he documented their pack structure, which would also use the term "alpha" in its ethological sense. See more »
(at around 4 mins) The airport the boys arrive at is not the Juan Santamaria Airport in Costa Rica. Three specific items give this away. 1) The glideslope shack is on the wrong side of the runway, 2) The taxiway names at Juan Santamaria are spelled out, instead of just using a single letter, and 3) The taxiway indicated by the sign would not be E (Echo) or F (Foxtrot) as shown, as that taxiway would be off-screen to the right, still ahead of the landing aircraft.

The emergence of another 'Jurassic Park' sequel after the failure of 'Jurassic Park III' was bound to open the movie to criticism as exploring the world of dinosaurs seems to have been exhausted. However 'Jurassic World' doesn't try to be anything new, in fact it goes back to the original movie and adds on a few tasty elements. The film is set twenty two years after the original park was closed down after the disastrous events, and an Indian tycoon has now invested in a bigger and better park. However events take a disastrous turn once again due to genetically created experiments that are taking place behind the scenes. The story is good but not too inventive and the action sequences are breath-taking, whereas predictably some of the characters are abit two dimensional. The film is huge and highly enjoyable whether you are a fan of 'Jurassic Park' movies or not, this is old fashioned mayhem. In fact it is much better then the highly rated 'Godzilla' movie from 2014, which never got going. Jurassic World does what a great sequel should do, which is to take what the original had and change a few things while adding on a few sub-plots. Take the family and settle down to a a couple of hours of summer movie fun!
