Whose eyes are we watching this with? Is someone flying a drone around the dinosaurs as they fight? Are we in the Matrix? That would certainly explain why, when the dinosaur's tail violently swings over our actress, she doesn't even flinch. This movie made a billion dollars.
See -- this sequence certainly looks neat, but it totally fails to portray any emotional weight or even a human perspective. Instead of filming this like a real thing happening to real people, the filmmakers wanted to show off how cool their CGI dinosaurs looked from every angle, swinging the camera high in the air like they were tiny children toys. Only no one is scared of tiny children's toys, you a*****es.
Look, I know I said this was gonna be calm, but the mediocrity feeds my rage-blood like sweet gamma rays. They miss every obvious opportunity to scare us. One of the first things established about the Indominus Rex is that it can camouflage, and they use this exactly once. Remember how the shark in Jaws was scary because you couldn't see it for most of the film? Well, Mr. Moviepants, you have a movie monster that literally turns invisible, and you never use that to conceal it from the audience? You opt to spoil any mystery 30 minutes in? You p***ks. You dirty Moviepants p***ks. But imagine how much freakier that Chris Pratt truck scene would have been with a giant goddamn predatorsaur. Why can't I see your f**king predatorsaur, Jurassic World?
I need a moment. This was supposed to be like 600 words long, and I feel like I may have overextended that. Let's all walk away and come back in 15. OK? OK.
So here's a scene in Jurassic World that I actually liked. Remember when they stick cameras on all the raptors?
