Colin Trevorrow's "Jurassic World" starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Irrfan Khan has managed to set a new opening box office record, collecting $207.4 million. But the movie has is a let-down.
When the dino-centric movie hit big screens after 22 years, fans were expecting to know more about the various types of raptors and the world surrounding them. But the film revolves entirely around the new hybrid Indominus Rex, which is bigger, scarier and louder than the popular Tyrannosaurus Rex.
The movie also focuses on the relationship between human beings and animals as well as the impact of technological advancements on mankind.
Here are the three expectations of viewers that "Jurassic World" fails to meet:
Dino-Centric Scenes: According to the official website, the film features 18 dinosaurs, including Apatosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Edmontosaurus, Mosasaurus, Stegosaurus, Gallimimus, Pachycephalosaurus, Suchomimus, Baryonyx, Parasaurolophus, Metriacanthosaurus, Pteranodon, Dimorphodon, Microceratus, Velociraptor, Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex. But the audience get only a glimpse of them.
Screen Space for T Rex and Mosasaurus: Besides the hybrid, dino fans across the globe were also expecting to see more of the two most powerful raptors in the theme park. However, both of them did not have much screen space. While T Rex was mostly featured in a fight sequence, Mosasaurus just had four to five scenes showing off his power.
Predicted Ending: Ever since "Jurassic Park" franchise announced the new film, speculations were gaining strength on the plot details. Initially there was a buzz about Indominus Rex and later rumours started doing the rounds on the ending. After the release of "Jurassic World", many of the speculations were proven right.
