Review: Jurassic World (2015) 

Destroying the international box office with a monster take over $500 millions, JURASSIC WORLD over took the highest weekend box office gross from AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. The review of the film is surprisingly mixed with Thomas and Santos scratching their heads at the film’s stupidity while Vixen, Dave and Doc are all about the dino-action.
