The fourth Jurassic Park movie is much like its “star”, Indominus rex, a genetically-modified creature which was created to recapture the thrill and excitement of previous dinosaur movies. As a measure of success, Jurassic World’s box office probably exceeded all expectations with its nearly $1.7 billion dollar in business. Despite Jurassic World’s astonishing popularity, this is an uninspired movie filled with ridiculously clichéd characters that will most certainly result in the continuation of the franchise which has nothing left to offer – though I expect we’ll soon see raptors fighting for freedom in a theater near you! (Klaus Ming December 2015).
