Format Watched: IMAX 3D
Setup: dinosaurs, pretty much like the first film.
Was it? Heck, yeah. But also much more. This is what they should have waited to make as a sequel. Yes, it’s the same. Yes, even some scenes are exact copies. Yes, there isn’t much more happening plot-wise.
But…. it’s fun, exciting, even a little bit dangerous. There are some crap moments that only happen in scripts that can’t think outside the franchise and have to force things to happen but you really don’t go into a movie of this nature and expect anything intellectual. It’s a ride and a very good one.
Weirdly for me I thought it was a bit scarier than a 12 rating but maybe I’m just a woos-asaurus.
3D IMAX: IMAX is a must for big action films now, really. It’s expensive but if you want to see the best and have a good seat with a view over the heads of anyone in front then IMAX for the win. 3D here was good on depth and added a nice touch but there wasn’t much coming out of the screen at you. Strange since dinosaurs are computer generated for exactly that purpose. Still, nice to have a huge screen and a 3D quality. Costly though.
Yes. I’m even gonna look for the full box set even though I didn’t like the middle bunch.
Watch if on TV?
