Plot
This is a sequel of Jurassic World, which in return is a sequel of Jurassic Park. This time, the military is up to no good and you know where this is going from the moment you see them on screen. The script is compartmentalized. We get a short intro, with Jeff Goldblum, who’s only here to tease us, then a segment on the island during a volcano eruption, and everything else happens in a manor.
The volcano sequence and the third act are breath-taking. They’re some of the best moments in the franchise. Ted Levine is here because we need someone to hate. Bryce Dallas Howard looks more human, this time around, and Chris Pratt beats up bad guys. There are many brilliant moments of extreme tension skillfully written and directed. Nothing is left to chance.
Am I the only one who isn’t crying, here? Half these dinosaurs would bite her head off if she let them, and Bryce’s character sheds a tear every time one of them bites the dust? Fallen Kingdom is an amazing film, but it has a political agenda. It is pro-environment and anti-capitalist. It’s not subtle. It’s not reasonable. It’s immature. Other than that, kudos!
