I’m not sure if Michael Crichton is spinning in his grave or what. However, it’s rather certain and difficult to pull a franchise out of a Tyrannosaurs-Rex-grave-sized hole. The novels are amazing, and they stand far above the movie compliments. This includes the more hokey, family-friendly third installment where the only decent thing about the film was the concept of evolution and dinosaurs becoming more intelligent.

I don’t care how attractive Bryce Dallas Howard is — OK. I’ll pause, because that’s a lie. At least Chris Pratt is in tow. He’s showing his vitality and ability to act in comedy and action roles. Let’s see how he can fare in a dinosaur movie.
The two things that worry me are the use of CGI and the potential of it being too family-friendly. The original Jurassic Park kept everyone on the edge of their seats for a wonderful, thrilling joyride. This installment, however, could be different and in similar fashion to JP III. Claw marks and all.
But it’s too early to tell. But I’m excited about it.
