Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) – Movie Review

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a sci-fi action adventure film directed by J. A. Bayona. The film is the sequel to Jurassic World (2015) and is the fifth installment of the Jurassic Park film series.

The film follows some years after the catastrophic events of dinosaur theme park, which happened in Jurassic World (2015). Set on the fictional island of Isla Nublar, Costa Rica, the plot follows Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), a raptor trainer, and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), a dinosaur right activist, as they must rescue the remaining dinosaurs on the island before a volcanic eruption destroys it. During a U.S. Senate hearing on whether dinosaurs should be saved, Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) argues that the dinosaurs should be left to die. One day, Benjamin Lockwood (James Cromwell), John Hammond’s former partner, contacts Claire, and plans plan a secret rescue mission to send the dinosaurs to a new island sanctuary where they will live without human interference.

It is the fifth installment in the Jurassic Park film series, and even if plotwise it’s a dino rescue mission, but overall it just feels like old wine in a new bottle. The story of the film goes in many directions and sticks to nothing. The film has some of the really amazing action sequences including the opening scene, the T-Rex entry scene, the introduction of some new killing machine dinosaurs, chase scenes, all are pretty exciting, and keeps the audience at the edge of their seat. The characters are also not that compelling as compared to its previous installments, just sit back, eat popcorn, and enjoy the dino haunted house destruction show.

Verdict : Been there, done that. A one time watch adventure film.

Rating : 3.5/5
