I'm unable to, in my heart, give this movie a pass because the last 30 minutes are awesome (they are). The other 90 minutes are pretty boring, made worse by the fact that the two brothers — sent to the theme park by their folks to vacation with their too-busy-working-at-the-park aunt (Bryce Dallas Howard) — are super-annoying.
Ignoring criticisms pitched at the film for failing to provide a realistic portrayal of a strong, independent woman, I found Bryce to be the best part of the film — I'd say even more bad-ass than the uncharacteristically uncharming Chris Pratt.
In conclusion: The movie is only just fine.
