Synopsis:
Three years after the Jurassic World theme park was closed down, Owen and Claire return to Isla Nublar to save the dinosaurs when they learn that a once dormant volcano on the island is active and is threatening to extinguish all life there. Along the way, Owen sets out to find Blue, his lead raptor and discovers a conspiracy that could disrupt the natural order of the entire planet. Life has found a way, again.


The formula for the Jurassic Park films has always been relatively simple: Take an island full of dinosaurs, add humans, and let chaos ensue. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, may lack its predecessor’s sense of wonder, but offers a much darker and a more intense adventure than previous films. In this installment, we get tossed into a terrifying possibility of mixing dinosaurs with mankind on our own turf. The movie’s hero's spend as much time avoiding the jaws and claws of dinosaurs as they spend hiding from the guns of mercenaries and the conspiracies of evil men in Fallen Kingdom, making for a distinctly different approach to the premise than previous films have taken.


With all of that being said Falling Kingdom does not seem to be for everyone in this household tho it seemed to work on half its audience. This movie is a pure masterpiece of visual effects that make every scene look fantastic, even in the story’s most terrifying moments. The dinosaurs are not only amazing to watch in action but also rendered with a level of detail that makes each dinosaur distinct, even when the action is at its most hectic. Not only do you find yourself on the edge of the couch this time around you also find yourself rooting for the dinosaurs. 


Fallen Kingdom is an ambitious film, certainly. The story’s willingness to take the franchise in a new direction feels like a risk worth taking, and the final product is a visual spectacle that’s well worth experiencing. I know for me I can not wait to see what the future holds and the possibility of humans living alongside Dino's is an amazing thought.

  1. The original Jurassic Park movie scared the bejesus out of me. I swore never to go to it again or to any sequel. And I haven't. Too much for this old broad!
