Movie Review: ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’

June 25, 2018 at 2:56 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | 1 Comment

If you like dinosaur movies where the dinos eat people, then Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the movie for you. It’s not a deep character story or gripping drama, its action and fun. You get an exploding volcano, dinosaurs fighting other dinosaurs and humans, humans running for their lives, and even a dinosaur in a creepy mansion. There’s some new situations, some new dinosaurs, and some new characters, but there’s also familiar dinos and familiar people. But the key is that its fun.

The movie starts with recruiting the team to go save the dinosaurs from the exploding island. They go there, they start their rescue op, then the island starts exploding and everything goes to chaos. It’s a mad scramble to get off the island with their lives, and there’s some changes in scenery. We get some situations with the dinosaurs on the boat as they’re transported elsewhere, and there’s a crazy dinos in the mansion scenario which is completely new to the franchise. Some of the horror style elements in that locale where great.

Throughout the movie, there’s fun characters, dinos and situations. You get close to some of the dinosaurs, cheering some, fearing others, and feeling sad when they die or are threatened. The same can be said with the humans. Some you will root for, some you hope die terrible deaths, and it’s all a part of the story as things roll along.

On the plus side, the CGI looks great in the film. There’s lots of fun action, and scary action. There’s some good humor, and some likable characters, whether they’re human or dinosaurs. On the bad side, it’s not quite as epic as the previous film as this one does have the feeling of being a bridge story that sets up the next one. There are some great moments in this one, so it does have some rewatchability, but it’s not going to be the favorite Jurassic Park movie on anyone’s list.

Going in, I knew what I was in for: dinosaurs, action, and fun. And that’s what I got. I don’t hold the Jurassic Park franchise up to any unreasonable expectations. The first one was ground breaking, and since then, the rest have just been fun action movies. Fallen Kingdom achieves that and I give it a four out of five metal bikinis.

  1. It’s fun. But also a little too stupid for its own good. Nice review.
