Jurassic World is a Terrible Sequel to Jurassic Park

Jurassic World has so many things going wrong for it because of the themes that are present in it.  You've got the military involved, one who wants to turn the dinosaurs into soldiers.  There's some hypocrisy involved in Bryce Dallas Howard's character and family.  She was peeved at one employee for wearing a Jurassic Park T-shirt, yet she is carrying out John Hammond's legacy.  Then she and her sister are squabbling over not being there for the children, when both are not there for the children.  Howard's company is gene splicing a dinosaur, because obviously consumers want a dinosaur that can't be under control.  Lastly, there's no dinosaur expert working there.  What all this means is a lack of interest on the people in the movie.
  Yes, people will be in danger.  But all this hypocrisy and greediness creates a lack of connection between viewer and the characters in the movie.  I had a similar problem with Katniss in the "Hunger Games" because she was a bitch.  Since she was, I would not root for her.  Jurassic World may be the best sequel to the original, but that's not saying much.
