Whats better than an amusement park? How about one with dinosaurs! Jurassic World has come to Blu-ray, find out more in the Kidzworld Review!

Now, 22 years later, an even bigger and enormously popular attraction has risen on Isla Nubar: Jurassic World. To keep attendance high, the park operators introduce a new, genetically modified hybrid creature called Indominus Rex. Bigger, stronger and far more intelligent than any dinosaur that ever walked the earth; the secretive new breed also proves more dangerous than anyone ever anticipated.

Executive-produced by franchise creator Steven Spielberg and directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy,) as Owen Grady, the park’s ex-military expert in animal behavior, and Bryce Dallas Howard (The Twilight Saga), as Claire Dearing, Jurassic World’s driven careerist, teaming up to save the park’s tourists when chaos erupts.

The Bottom Line

Trying to make a better blockbuster movie than the original Jurassic Park might actually be as hard (if not harder) than bringing dinosaurs back to life, but the fourth installment in the series, Jurassic World, breathes new life into the story. Fast forward from the crumbling dream of Jurassic Park to today, and as Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) puts it "No one is impressed by a dinosaur anymore" - the theme park has been going strong for 22 years, and dinosaurs are just another gimmick for tourists. When the park tries to draw in new audiences with a crazy dino-hybrid that's smarter than your average college student and ready to run wild, you're in for an action thriller to remember.

When it comes to special effects and action films, you couldn't ask for better material than dinosaurs on the loose - the Blu-ray in 3D adds an extra dimension to the chase experience when you take this combo homem with eye-popping colors and great details on the dinos - the scales really come to life. If you find 3D to be sort of intense, it works just as well without it. The Blu-ray come packed with extras, we'd definitely recommend watching the Deleted Scenes and the Chris Pratt and director Colin Trevorrow interviewing each other in "Chris and Colin Take on the World."

The one thing that's definitely not extinct in this Blu-ray is fun.
