Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom takes place a few years after Jurassic World in which a volcano becomes active and the dinosaurs are in danger of becoming extinct again so it is up to Claire (Bryan Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt) to save the dinosaurs. Though they later get caught up in a scheme where dinosaurs get auctioned off.
Yeah that premise makes little to no sense at all. These films are so stupid now. And this whole film is a basically set up for the final third film, which means we’re getting what title says – Jurassic World. Just so you know, I don’t like the first Jurassic World, I don’t like this one, and I doubt that I will like the next one. It repeats a lot of beats from the last movie, there’s nothing new and if there is new stuff than it’s dumb.
The two new characters are pretty useless. The villain is boring. There’s too many Deux Ex Machina’s and callbacks to the very first Jurassic Park as usual. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are fine. Some of the dinosaurs looked cool, but that’s about it.
There’s two parts of this film the volcano part and the mansion part. The mansion part of the film is kind of played out like a horror film, and while it didn’t succeed at doing that, I feel that could be an effective way to revitalize the franchise, though if it were to do that it would not be family friendly anymore.
They also brought up an interesting concept on whether these dinosaurs should be given protection as endangered species would, even though they are man-made. From all the other Jurassic Park movies the answer should obviously be no, but this franchise never learns and that’s why it’s going downhill. If you have seen the trailers, then you have pretty much seen the whole movie.
I give Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom a D.
