The 3D version is good. The storyline is good and the graphics are great. Over all it is worth seeing.
The action is spaced out just enough to let you rest a little between the chase scenes. If you saw the original Jurassic Park, this one may let you down a little because by now you know basically what is happening. For the old timers, you may be surprised who you're rooting for in the second half.
For the new viewer, you will greatly enjoy the graphics, they are spectacular.

Loved the main characters but some spots were slow and boring. Still worth seeing.

"Jurassic World" is the fourth of the Jurassic park sedries that dates back to the first movie in 1993. I can recall seeing that movie. I was about to give up on going to the movies, but 'Juassic Park" really change my mind. If there is one movie that can change a man's life, it will be "Jurassic Park." But let's move on to 'Jurassic World," the new movie as a totally different cast. Despite that, the movie become more exciting as the last three JP movies. It's the best Jurassic Park movie since the first. And believe me, I saw the first movie three times on television to perpare myself for the current film. Isla Nublar has changed as it want from a park to a world with more people on the island than the last three JP movies combine. Chris Platt did a great job as a Rapter wanger who can stop then with his hand. Bryce Dallas Howard can run though the woods in high heels. there is a new dinosaur who a cross between Frankenstein and King Kong. and when he is on the loose on the island, nothing can stop him and he's not-a-friendly. A reference from Owen wilson in the second Night at the Museum movie. This is a cool movie and Platt's presence and the dinosaurs make the film more enjoyable. it's a lot of fun so go see it.

Boring in a few spots, not a real scary movie but the effects are good. I liked the first two a lot better.

As Jurassic Park is a favorite movie of mine, any sequel ideally should improve my regard for the original, but at worst, it should not make me regret that the sequel was ever made. I greatly dislike when sequels diminish the value of the installments that came before. Installments #2 and #3 were not as good as the original, but they managed to avoid the latter situation (even though #3 came really close).
This means that there was a lot riding on Jurassic World. How do you revive a franchise that started 22 years earlier and that hasn't had an installment since 2001, all without screwing it up?
The first step is that the environment of the "park" has to be convincing, and awe-inspiring. After all, part of the appeal of the original was seeing classic dinosaurs life-sized, and being able to spend two hours enjoying being immersed in the world that the filmmakers created.
Next, throw in an interesting plot, interesting characters, plenty of action, and season with humor.
I'm happy to say that they succeeded on all fronts. The world created within the movie is thoroughly convincing. The CGI is very well-done and we get some new dinos to look at. Rather than rehash old plotlines of greedy corporate or military villains, we get good old-fashioned capitalism in the form of a theme park and all the trappings that come with commercial exploitation of something in order to separate tourists from their money.
The characters are probably the weakest ensemble of the four installments, but Chris Pratt does do a good job.
Overall, this was an enjoyable movie. I recommend seeing it with a big picture and big sound system, as an action movie like this really benefits from impressive visuals and pulse-pounding audio.

I'm honestly not quite sure why this movie was so well received. It's easily the most overrated movie of 2015. Yes, it's the best sequel to the original Jurassic Park, but that's really not saying much. It's not better than the original by any stretch of the imagination, but I think the reason so many people enjoyed this film is that they viewed it as fun. They could go to the theatre and turn off their brains to watch dinosaurs mess up some stuff. It's a fun enough movie as far as the plot is concerned, but the rest of the film is just dull. Chris Pratt was fine in the movie, but he wasn't a stand out. The script is bland and dry, with none of the one-liners landing. Every single jump scare was predictable and not thrilling in the least. There were also so many mini plot points that had absolutely nothing to do with the overall story that were only included in an attempt to create an emotional attachment to the human characters, but that effort just plain failed. This movie is fun, but under no circumstances is it great.
