Buy it... if you trust Michael Giacchino to deliver a technically masterful emulation of John Williams' original music for the concept in this impressive and loyal sequel score.

Avoid it... if you expect Giacchino to truly capture the emotional resonance of Jurassic Park, an arguably impossible task in the inevitable world of comparisons.

Giacchino
Jurassic World: (Michael Giacchino) Shortly after the artistic disappointment of Jurassic Park III in 2001, Steven Spielberg sought to return glory to the franchise he started in 1993 with the original classic, Jurassic Park. Throughout the 2000's, he toiled with numerous versions of the fourth installment's script, concocting stories building out of the existing concept's universe and, at alternating times, involving original actors Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Richard Attenborough. After development stalled and director Joe Johnston left the scene, not to mention the death of creator and author Michael Crichton in 2008, Jurassic Park IV was set on a back burner for several years. When it emerged in 2015 as Jurassic World, it had morphed into a direct sequel of the original film and retained only one secondary character, though references to the same dinosaurs and locations from Jurassic Park were significantly referenced. The new story postulates that the same company responsible for resurrecting dinosaurs on a Costa Rican island and attempting to make a theme park out of it eventually swept aside the "incident" that comprised Jurassic Park and, after two decades, successfully commercialized and rebranded it as "Jurassic World." Inevitably, though, they engineer a new dinosaur species that ruins the scheme, causing tourists to once again become prey. The formula of the film is somewhat rehashed, a visiting duo of youngsters and an animal hunter/trainer battling the organization's bad decisions in their fight for survival. The number of in-jokes and cross-references to Jurassic Park in Jurassic World is stunning, clearly indicating that the idea of a "reboot" was not the intention. Overcoming only middling reviews, Jurassic World was a monstrous financial success and dominated the summer 2015 season at theatres, affection for the concept obviously still lingering. Handling the music for the sequel was no doubt a tricky prospect. John Williams' original music for Jurassic Park, despite a decent but not comparable sequel from the maestro for The Lost World: Jurassic Park a few years later, is considered legendary. Although Williams was still actively writing in 2015, he was deeply involved with Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the assignment for Jurassic World went to the only logical alternative, Michael Giacchino.
