I was really, really looking forward to Jurassic World. Jurassic Park has a special place in my heart, having watched it in my mid teens and being in awe of the CGI that was used in it. I remember CGI being as something still quite new at the time and it made an impressive change from the old school SFX.
But I left this film feeling as if I’d seen it all before, mainly in the heavily promoted trailer. It was a good film, and would recommend other seeing it, but to me it suffered in the comparison with the original. I did really enjoy the knowing in-jokes though – the great white shark serving as dinner for one of its long-ago ancestors was great.
I am going to leave you with this far superior trailer for Jurassic Weenies.
