| One of my favorite movies of all time.
I was coming into the movie with very high expectations and came out with the movie exceeding my expectations! Jurassic World is now one of my favorite movies of all time. The action sequences are intense and plentiful. The special effects are top notch. The music is wonderful(and not just John William's famous themes; Michael Giacchino's score is excellent as well.) And while the characters may not be as developed as in the original Jurassic Park, they are interesting in their own right. Chris Pratt does a great job as Owen, the raptor trainer, and Bryce Dallas Howard does excellent as Claire, the head of the park. One of my favorite "characters" though is the underwater dinosaur Mosasaur. (Every time it jumps out of the pool it's freaking awesome!) Even though a lot of people have called this movie predictable, it had a lot of twists and turns that were surprising, especially the ending. Without spoiling it, the ending sequence is one of the most epic endings that I can remember in any movie. The ending will give any true Jurassic Park fan chills.

Trivia

The T. Rex, Rexy/Roberta's age has been a source of controversy. In real-life, Tyrannosauruses are believed to have only had an average lifespan of around twenty-eight years, assuming that she was cloned in 1993 (when the first movie came out) she would be around twenty-one-years-old (as of 2014) making her quite elderly, taken that into consideration that she has been raised in captivity and (apart from the raptor attacks in Jurassic Park (1993)) likely wouldn't have endured the harsh lifestyle a T. Rex would normally go through, this means that a Tyrannosaurus would possibly live longer in captivity than in the wild, something that is true of many real-life animals. It also seems that she is the only T. Rex in the exhibit, because at her age, she's probably no longer able to breed, and therefore probably wouldn't have much interest in a mate, even if she could produce young, it would likely be far too dangerous for the park staff to allow her to do so, after all, in The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), it showed that Tyrannosauruses are very protective of their young.

Karen: Boys, let's do this!


Goofs

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.


Crazy Credits

Rather than fade to black, the Legendary logo fades to white into the movie.


Alternate Versions

TV spots featured a scene with Claire covering herself in dinosaur dung, this scene was removed for the theatrical release.
