The usual plotline: scientific hubris, escaped monsters, chaos and death, close calls, triumph and lesson learned. Lots of CGI monsters. Obligatory doses of multi and gendy. The bad guys are evil scientists (Chinese) and corporation heads (Indian). Though not as bad as the military guy, (White) of course.
One of the ways that heterosexuality (which I honor but do not understand) baffles me is the supposed attraction of hot guys to cold bitches. Maybe it's the hunt and conquer thing. And nowadays even an Alpha Male --and White, to boot!-- must have a scene where he is saved by the Strong Womyn. Though he does melt her at the end. Which is not surprising, considering that the Hero is
Chris Pratt, who has gone from xtra chubby comedian
to seriously testosteronish gun and motorcycle raptor-taming hot hero dude,
redeems most of that silliness for me.
PS. Discovered that Mr Pratt is the real deal. He is a Christian believer, father of a new boy with his wife, won the Spike TV Guy of the Year Award, and looks forward to leaving LA so he can be a Boy Scout troop leader, drink beer on Saturday, go to church on Sunday and have fun.
God. Where the hell did they find him?
This flick, though, is making oceans of money. More than 1/2 billion bucks on its first global weekend.
