Three years after the demise of Jurassic World, a volcanic eruption threatens the remaining dinosaurs on the isla Nublar, so Claire Dearing, the former park manager, recruits Owen Grady to help prevent the extinction of the dinosaurs once again.
As an actor in this sequel, even less involving than its predecessor, I'd be keen to move on to other challenges and file this outing under 'mistake'. None of the players comes out of it with credit. In their defence, the script they were handed is about as dire as they come. However, they could have declined. The money must have been too good for some and the second tier will have been extremely glad to be cast in a major and now legendary franchise. But even they must now know it could have a dampener on future prospects. The two tag-alongs setting out to save the dinos over-acted out of their skins in highly improbable roles, especially the geeky tech guy who thankfully seemed to have been largely sidelined by the second half of the movie. There were a large number of what are often called 'nods' to earlier Jurassic iterations. So many that, to me, it suggested both a lack of scriptwriter imagination and a patronising view of prospective audiences, who they must have expected to sigh with nostalgia at these blatantly constructed and clunky scenes. Overall I (and the three family members who watched it with me) feel it was a laughable attempt at extending this franchise long after its expiry date. The first two in the series became iconic cinematic milestones because the novelty value and highly credible acting was complemented by outstandingly good visual effects. This latest effort fails miserably in spite of great visuals because the other two were woefully absent.
Predictable, yes. But we the Jurassic Park lovers loved the scenes they recreated from the old movies and the music. That plus the new tech in movies is just awesome
I had a couple of hours to kill, so decided to check out Jurassic World:Fallen Kingdom. I can still remember the thrill of watching the original Jurassic Park which was ground breaking for visuals at the time. Unfortunately for Fallen Kingdom that is no longer the case and the movie really seemed to be stuck abiding by the same formula as all the Jurassic movies.The one thing that is different in Fallen Kingdom is the total lack of suspense throughout the movie. This is a distinct step backwards from Jurassic World which was all together more entertaining. Whilst the leads, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, do their best there is no getting away from the clunky plot that we've seen before. If anybody ever ends up with Jurassic box set this is one of the movies which will be played once and then shelved. Definitely one to wait for small screen and then watch whilst surfing the web.
They should better end the movie with the volcanic explosion at the island. The last scene on the island was so amazing. I loved the idea. The pain on the eyes of that dinosaur was clearly visible. But everything turned to a disaster after that.
