The moment had finally arrived. Dinosaurs appeared on the big screen once again.

Myself, among many other fans across the world, had high expectations - partly because my entire childhood consisted of watching these films back to back every summer.

But you can often get caught up in the moment with blockbusters, you can go along with the rest of the crowd and sit back and wait for the action to happen.

I had my niggling doubts, however, that this would not be the classic Speilberg phenomenon.

Colin Trevorrow took the reigns for Jurassic World which was set 22 years after the last chapter. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s on set chemistry was worth a watch.

Whilst holding my popcorn before entering the screen I couldn’t help but suspect whether this modern take on a classic would ruin all those of hours of picking my favourite dinosaur. I’m afraid to say I was somewhat near the mark but not totally.

Visually it’s a masterpiece. The technology of today makes the dinosaurs back in Dr Alan Grant’s day look like the early years of Wallace and Gromit.

Maybe it was the high expectations but usually with the Jurassics you expect a long unexpected journey. This was so different, so modern it was almost predictable.
