I was a little worried when they said they were making a new Jurassic Park. It's been many years since the third one (which wasn't all that good). But when my Jurassic-crazy coworker saw it in theaters and raved about how much they loved it, I decided to try it. I was actually really impressed. They only link back to the original trilogy once, aside from the same genetic scientist from the first movie. It's essentially an updated theme park with a ton of "state of the art" technology and rides and attractions. With dinosaurs. They definitely did some things with this movie that they wouldn't have even thought about with the other 3. It can't be compared to the original Jurassic Park, but being a movie about a theme park full of dinosaurs in the modern era - it was great.
