Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Director: J.A. Bayona
Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce-Dallas Howard
Three years after the demise of Jurassic World, a volcanic eruption threatens the remaining dinosaurs on the Island Nubar, so Claire Dearing, the former park manager, recruits Owen Grady to help prevent the extinction of the dinosaurs again. .
I wasn't the biggest of the previous entree in the franchise, Jurassic World, so I didn't really have high hopes for this one whatsoever. And I was entertained throughout the entire film, but none of it felt original nor even rememberable. The plot of the film is very similar to The Lost World just making it seem as if we've seen everything already. The film has some pretty silly plot points which include a clone and even with the main characters' motives. They're motives are then just so easily changed throughout the entire film, for example, Chris Pratt's character didn't wanna be involved in saving the dinosaurs, but as he sees an old clip of him playing with Blue, he immediately wants to save them. The film begins to be so ridiculous for the entire franchise where the characters still believe it's a good idea to create these creatures even though it's proven time to time again that it hasn't worked out. This franchise should've ended a long time ago and this just isn't helping it in any way. There's even a character played by Justice Smith who just screams at the top of his lungs whenever he sees a dinosaur, which necessarily doesn't make sense considering the fact that he wants to save these "beautiful" creatures. I don't recommend this film whatsoever and the franchise should just end from here.
