Three years after the destruction of the Jurassic World theme park, Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) return to the island of Isla Nublar to save the remaining dinosaurs from a volcano that’s about to erupt. They soon encounter terrifying new breeds of gigantic dinosaurs, while uncovering a conspiracy that threatens the entire planet.
What I felt was going to be an epic finale to the Jurassic park legacy turned out to be a supreme court hearing for ‘The People Vs. The dinosaurs’. You will love the comedic moments from the cast especially the chemistry between Chris Pratt and Bryce Howard. The special effects are on point, but the film left me with more questions than answers, such as who are these new characters just now being introduced into the script, yet don’t have any past or connection to the Jurrasic Park timeline?
This only concludes that dinosaurs aren’t going anywhere except into another spin-off of this never-ending saga.
In this film, you’ll be scared to death about who is going to make it out alive, excited when the underdog wins, and then you will be confused about how new characters came about, but then, in the end, you will leave ecstatic that dinosaurs are long gone, only available to view at museums, books, and in movies.
Overall, this film was just “okay” and generally the film has not gotten great reviews, but I will say it will make a dent at the box office because of the cast, reputation, and it’s cross-promotional marketing campaigns.
There are some reasonably entertaining scenes and set pieces, but the whole concept feels tired and contrived, and crucially the dinosaurs themselves are starting to look samey, without inspiring much of the awe or terror they used to.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens in the US on the 22nd of June.
