Exciting, rip-roaring and a wonderful homage to previous installments!
Sequels have the propensity to fall short especially in the story department. Largely because, anything after an original idea hardly exhibits the element of surprise that makes the first a favorite.
Every attempt to make Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom less of a popcorn movie ( raising issues of climate change and wildlife endangerment) falls through thanks to the blood transfusion scene and the super hero drive, away from the Isla Nublar with Claire behind the wheels. 😂
It remains a popcorn movie and as such, shouldn’t be taken that seriously but critically enjoyed.
In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Owen Grady ( Chris Pratt) reunites with his estranged lover, Claire Dearing ( Bryce Howard) to help save Blue, an Velociraptor he trained from infancy. Blue and other dinosaurs are at risk of extinction as a volcanic eruption threatens to consume the Islar Nublar.
Aged and dying Benjamin Lockwood ( James Cromwell ) hires the pair through his money hungry assistant, Mills (Rafe Spall) to rescue some of the dinosaurs and transport them to a newly built haven. Sadly Lockwood has been hoodwinked by Mills who trades off the dinos as war machines.
Owen, Claire accompanied by military vet Zia Rodriguez (Daniella Pineda), computer Whiz, Franklin (Justice Smith) and the ACU soldiers head on to the ruined island. Things rapidly trickle out of control as the 4 man rescue team ( Claire, Owen, Zia and Franklin) discover too late that the rescue mission is no charity move.

Considering that kids are this dino franchise’ biggest audience, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom creates conflicts guaranteed to bring to life their worst nightmares.
Maisie, Lockwood’s orphaned ward ( Isabella Sermon), is the perfect character to embody this experience for young ones. Matched with the nerve wrecking scenes of the Indoraptor unleashing its terror, kids will have a field day screaming their lungs off!
The J.A. Bayona-directed film is also a cinematic wonder with its use of incredibly realistic looking dinosaurs.
Since the 1993 inception of the Jurassic World franchise, the producers have explored technological methods to improve the realistic feel to the dinosaurs. Impressive right?
Despite rolling out a couple of cliche (not exactly bad) scenes, the story is multifaceted. It also boasts of more than one major character.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is purely entertainment. Entertainment that appeals to its highly versatile audience.
