Most overrated movie ever. It seemed like a scene for scene remake of the first, only bigger. And with Chris Pratt!

I still can't believe this pile of crap made a BILLION dollars. I blame Michael Bay.

I blame the people who paid to see it.

Saw this today. It was ok. No better or worse than the 2nd and 3rd movies. Essentially Jurassic Park meets Aliens, without any remarkable performances and ho-hum special effects. This is also the least charming performance I've personally seen out of Chris Pratt. He squeezed more character out of his brief role in Zero Dark Thirty than he did over the entirety of JW. What a waste.

I have to say I enjoyed this a little more watching it at home than I did the first time in the cinema but it still didn't wow me. I feel they could have put a lot more into it as it felt like there was a lot missing and they rushed the so so story as it is. And I have to agree with Duke Togo that Chris Pratt's performance was rather weak. At times looking rather disinterested in the role. I thought he did quite well in Guardians Of The Galaxy even though that movie wasn't so great either! Haven't seen Zero Dark Thirty yet..

Honest Trailers NEVER disappoints!!

That being said, I thought the movie was pretty good. I'll be adding it to the shelf.

It was entertaining, and that's all I look for in a M.O.V.I.E.

Can't argue with that, but I was laughing at it most of the time (and that is not a joke) and I don't think it was meant to be a comedy.

I just couldn't get over the fact that they didn't call up control to get a beacon on the I-rex BEFORE going into the padlock.

I plan on buying the Blu-ray when it comes out... mostly because I bought the box set, and it has a slot for for it.

Now here is a version of Jurassic World I'd love to see. Look at that cast! Michael Caine, Raquel Welch, Richard Pryor, and Charlton Heston!

Possibly while running through rugged terrain, or abandoned amusement parks in impossibly high heeled shoes.

Ah, until next year when we get trailers for the teaser trailers. Commercials for commercials for commercials!

I also hate the new trend of putting clips of the trailer your about to watch right before the video starts. Irritates the crap out of me.

They've thrown in a volcano.

I liked Jurassic World. It rates number 2 in the series for me, so I'll be going to watch this one. Chris Pratt is cool and Bryce Dallas Howard is just smokin'!!

For me it was when trailers started having commercials before them on youtube.  THAT is just plain wrong.

well, we can blame those evil doers at Google for that one.  After all, they have to monetize Youtube somehow, and let's face it, it's not as if you aren't going to watch.  Muhahahahaha  (not sure if that's how Page or Brin really laughs, but I'm pretty sure that's how Schmidt laughs)

I often forget YouTube has ads. I forget a lot of things have ads. Hooray for adblockers!

Usually I can ignore ads too but I don't have control of adblockers on all of my machines I access the net with.

Kind of makes me wish the ending to the original book happened in the movie with the whole island getting bombed.

I'm getting a Lost World vibe and thats not a good thing. Lost World was the worst JP film and also Spielberg's worst film too IMHO. Shame as Lost World is one of my favorite books, it was so good that I finished it in a day. Couldn't put it down.

This trailer seem to have featured some scenes that could have been surprises in the movie, such as the T-Rex saving the day or the escape on that glass sphere. Did anyone else thought the same?

Didn't watch it, but that is the general rule for trailers. All the best scenes and twists are in the trailer.

Actually, no. What I thought is that in every Jurassic movie, T-Rex always saves the day. So it's already predictable. ;)
