Indiana Jones had no impact on the outcome of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark.’ With Indy, or without Indy, the Nazis would have died. What about the new Jurassic World movie? Lots of unanswered questions asked by Donna Dickens.
Of course, no one expects air-tight logic from a movie about genetically-recreated dinosaurs running roughshod over gullible humans who sought to control nature. But there’s propelling the action through fun set pieces populated by terrifying monsters and then there’s bending suspension of disbelief until it snaps like a twig.
It snaps, time and again. My favorite:
Think back to “Jurassic Park.” What was one of the mitigating factors during the chaos? The hurricane. So why does “Jurassic World” not have an evacuation plan? Forget an escaped asset; there needs to be a way to move 20,000+ people to safety in the event of a tropical storm. Or a fire. Or any other number of things.
Running and screaming and getting eaten during the mayhem is more exciting than orderly following an evacuation plan.
