Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Jurassic World

Better than the marketing and reviews prepped me for: (a) it's entertaining, and (b) it captures much of the tone and feel of the first film, thanks largely to both the score, and a rigid analysis of Speilberg's shot compositions, most of which are used again here. It misses the sheer *awe* of the original, because of course, but its meta-awareness of that problem is satisfying. Did I mention that it's entertaining?
