Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jun 22, 18 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom



It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.

So, the first thoughts.


A huge improvement over the corny Jurassic World. Far from perfect, but surprisingly good, and it includes some of the most beautiful scenes in the whole franchise. There are moments brought real tears to my eyes, and that has never happened to me before in a JP movie.


The animatronics are back, and they are superb. They used them carefully and wisely to tell the story. T-rex is awesome. She is the most magnificent creature in the movie, and she got some really excellent appearances, in which she became a menace again.


The movie starts with a great opening sequence, and it builds up tension slowly, then all of a sudden it turns into a non-stop roller coaster. The acting is well held this time, and there is little to no cheesiness at all.


The nods to the first two films are subtle but well played. The movie is brimful of classic JP set-pieces and atmosphere. Bayona has nailed it with set-pieces.


As for the negatives, the movie has got too loud sometimes, and this made me feel that I need a break. It also dragged for about ten minutes in its third act. These were the main two things that bothered me the most.


All in all, it was worth waiting. Not great, but good, and really fun. It’s suspenseful, scary, heartbreaking, wonderfully filmed, and visually resplendent. There are three scenes here any fan can consider them some of their favourite scenes in the franchise.


Mister Bayona, after careful consideration, I’ve decided to endorse your park.


Long live Jurassic Park.
