After watching this movie you really wish that maybe some great movies should never have a sequel to ruin the good name of the franchise. Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom starts hard and fast but the climax leaves us disappointed and unsatisfied. The dinosaurs chasing people, the horrifying roar and the point of entire script to ‘SURVIVE’ lacks wow factor.
It is definitely bigger than it first part, but the script is very dull and the writing is simply unimpressive. It is obviously following the same theme as the first three ‘Jurassic Park’ movies. So basically, we are looking at animal trafficking. But things get interesting post interval as we see our finest survivalist of all, Dr. Wu played by BD Wong, yet again up to creating something more ugly than Indominus rex.
The sequel is set a few years later when we last saw Jurassic World being taken over by the dinosaurs and now there’s a volcano eruption happening on that very island which will wipe out all the dinosaurs. Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) is working with a bunch of people protesting to save those animals as government leaves the animals to fate. She is then approached by John Hammond’s old partner Benjamin Lockwood to help her save those dinosaurs. But it isn’t as simple as it looks.

She then convinces our favorite raptor alpha Owen Brady (Chris Pratt) to join on the rescue mission along with two of Claire’s teammates played by Daniella Pineda and Justice Smith. The cast is pretty amazing, everyone spot on with their A game but the story as it goes on keeps getting muddy and boring.
Everyone was thrilled with the knowledge of Jeff Goldblum’s return to this franchise but it’s disappointing as you’ll see him for not more than a minute. You will see some great scare treats in this one as it is directed by J. A. Bayona (famous for movies like ‘When A Stranger Calls’, ‘The Orphanage’).
The first half of the movie is fairly great, it has everything you wish to see in the sequel, the pair (Owen and Claire) back together in dinosaur world, Owen and Blue’s (Our favorite raptor of all) reunion and the very emotions displayed correctly when they see a dinosaur for the very first time. Second half is chaotic and disarranged, you can call it lazy writing.
Once off the island with the dinosaurs, our lead duo does everything it can to ‘survive’ and figure out a way to stop the selling of this animals. We see new characters like Rafe Spall and Toby Jones, the villain duo, who played their characters pretty good, only they were too let down by messy script and dull writing. It should be named Jurassic World the Fallen Boredom.
Overall, you will have to see this sequel as it is the connection between the first and the third which is supposed to come out in 2021. We’re strongly hoping that Jurassic World 3 is better than this one or else the franchise will be extinct.
We give it 2.5 stars with a kink.
