Movie Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

It's been three years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. When the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who's still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

A decent popcorn flick with amazing practical and visual effects. Non stop action and suspense from beginning until the end. Fallen Kingdom’s first act feels like a Jurassic Park greatest-hits reel. There are some fine performances, not least from young Isabella Sermon, who plays the ultimately pivotal role of Maisie Lockwood. The second half of this film is all hers. While Jurassic World gave us a lovely self-contained story, Fallen Kingdom leaves us wondering just where the series will go for its third act. Overall Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is an entertainment treat for all dinosaur lovers out there.

My Verdict: 4/5
