Jurassic World isn’t only one of the biggest hits of the year, it’s one of the biggest hits of all time! Still, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t enough logical fallacies in there to make Mr. Spock’s head explode. So enter the fine folks at “How It Should Have Ended,” who bring their considerable comedic and pragmatic talents to bear on the Colin Trevorrow film, which, let’s face it, had more than a few plotholes. Now we all love Jurassic World of course, it’s a fun love letter to the summer of 1993 when we all really saw dinosaurs come to life on the big screen for the first time, but at the same time, we can’t ignore that there are giant gaps in the story you can drive a truck through.
And now, courtesy of the folks at How It Should Have Ended, How Jurassic World should have ended.
So now that we’ve taken Trevorrow down a peg… Meh, who are we kidding? Because of Jurassic World it looks like he’s going to be directing Star Wars Episode IX, and at the end of the day, he’s sleeping at night on top of a big pile of money with many beautiful ladies. Or something like that.
Still, you’ve got to love a movie plot that could have been resolved had one of the main characters done one thing differently early in the film. Of course the same could be said for Raiders of the Lost Ark, where all the Nazis would have still found the Ark and died when opening had Indy not been there. Or Jaws, where the shark would have moved on had the Mayor had the balls to order the beaches closed after the first attack. Alas, sometimes logic gets in the way of solid, thrilling filmmaking. Jurassic World is just the latest example.
Jurassic World is still in theaters everywhere, complete with how it actually ended.
