Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, InGen has opened a fully functional replacement called "Jurassic World" on Isla Nublar. Brothers Zach and Gray Mitchell are sent to visit their aunt, Claire Dearing, the park's operations manager. Claire's assistant Zara is their guide, as Claire is too busy recruiting more corporate sponsors with bigger dinosaur attractions to maintain the park's attendance. To that purpose, InGen's geneticists have created a new genetically-modified dinosaur called Indominus rex made from DNA of several predatory dinosaurs, as well as modern-day animals like cuttlefish and tree frogs. Dr. Henry Wu, the park's chief geneticist, keeps the exact combination a secret. Simon Masrani, the park's owner, wants Velociraptor trainer and researcher, Owen Grady, to review the Indominus‍ '​ enclosure before the exhibit opens to the public. Owen and Claire, who dated one time but clashed over Claire's controlling nature and Owen's irreverent personality, inspect the exhibit together. Owen warns Claire that the Indominus is extremely dangerous because it has never been socialized to other dinosaurs.

Vic Hoskins, head of InGen security, believes the park's four velociraptors can be trained for military use, but Owen argues that his being the raptors' alpha does not mean they are tamed or controllable. At the Indominus enclosure, Owen and Claire discover that the Indominus has seemingly scaled the wall and escaped. Owen and two other staff enter the enclosure, but the Indominus ambushes them, having faked its escape. It kills both staff before escaping into the jungle, though Owen survives.

Masrani sends armed security to capture the Indominus, but after it kills most of the team, Claire orders an evacuation. Meanwhile, Gray and Zach, having sneaked away to explore on their own, ignore the evacuation order and wander into a forested area in a gyrosphere. The Indominus attacks and destroys the vehicle, but the boys survive. Traveling on foot, they find the ruins of the original Jurassic Park Visitor Center. After repairing an old Jeep, they drive back to the main park. Owen and Claire, searching for them, trail the boys back to the park after barely surviving the Indominus themselves. The Indominus continues its rampage, killing several Apatosaurus and smashing into the park's pterosaur aviary. Masrani and two soldiers hunt the Indominus in a helicopter, but escaped pterosaurs attack it, resulting in it crashing, killing everyone aboard. Gray and Zach arrive at the main park as the pterosaurs begin attacking the visitors, killing Zara in the mayhem. Owen and Claire find Gray and Zach, while armed troops subdue the pterosaurs.

Hoskins assumes command and decides to use the velociraptors to track and kill the Indominus; Owen reluctantly agrees with the plan. The velociraptors follow the Indominus‍ '​ scent into the jungle, and Owen and several InGen soldiers launch an attack. However, because Indominus has raptor DNA, it can communicate with the velociraptors, and turns them against the soldiers. Owen rekindles his bond with one, but soldiers kill it. Meanwhile, Hoskins has Dr. Wu helicoptered off the island with dinosaur embryos, protecting his research. Owen, Claire, Zach, and Gray find Hoskins in the lab packing up the remaining dinosaur embryos. As Hoskins reveals he had intended all along to create genetically-modified dinosaurian super-weapons, he is killed by a raptor.

Owen leads Claire, Zach, and Gray outside, where the other raptors confront them. Owen reestablishes his bond with them before the Indominus appears. The raptors align with Owen and attack the Indominus, resulting in them being killed. Knowing they are outmatched, Claire lures the park's veteran Tyrannosaurus rex into a fight with the Indominus. The T. rex is overpowered until the reappearance of the lone surviving raptor, "Blue". The two dinosaurs force the overwhelmed Indominus towards the lagoon, where the resident Mosasaurus drags it underwater. The T. rex departs, with Blue following. The next day, the survivors are evacuated to Costa Rica. Zach and Gray are reunited with their parents while Owen and Claire decide to stay together.

After 14 years, finally Jurassic is back on blockbuster! The first 2 movies were directed by Stephen Spielberg which has mark the standard so high and cause the 3rd movie to slight down when it was directed by Joe Johnston during 2001. As for Colin Trevorrow, I'm not sure about his work, but he makes a quite impressive on this film.

This time, the scientist came out a new species of dinosaur which is so powerful that the brain is so much better than the rest. Of course, the worst part would be what has been discussed wildly on the internet now, is the high heel that Bryce Dallas Howard wore to run in the whole movie~ Another funny thing is during the end, when the "original species" of dino joint venture to attack the indominus rex and how the main actor can control the raptors as well~
