So, I was interested in doing a quick Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom movie review, but the dinosaurs in the JP franchise are so well done, I didn’t think I’d be able to find an awkward dinosaur image to post with it, but thanks to @ , who sent me this pic today, I have something to post! If you care to know my thoughts on Fallen Kingdom, read on. No real spoilers:
.
.
First, a recap of my Jurassic World thoughts: Dinosaurs 5/5, Writing & Story 2.5/5, Characters 3/5, Special effects 4.5/5. Overall review 3/5. The quality of the dinosaurs made up for the cookie-cutter plot and there were some nice surprises. The characters could have also been less cookie-cutter and stereotyped. However, Pratt’s character, Owen, did really well. I was very dubious about the idea of a character who could actually train raptors and retain all his limbs.

Fallen Kingdom: Dinosaurs 5/5, Writing & Story 3.5/5, Characters 3.5/5. Special Effects 4/5. Overall review 4/5. So, I thought Fallen Kingdom did a great job of making up for the first installment’s weaknesses, and caring its strengths. The bad guy’s motivations were a little less transparent, but still not surprising. Overall the writing was better. I’m glad there wasn’t a lot of emphasis on romance. There wasn’t quite as much action as the last movie, but I was okay with that because at least the slower parts were more interesting and some of the twists I thought were smarter, if not a tiny bit predictable. Even though it fell victim to the trope of “offscreen character arriving at last minute to save the day” a few more times than I’d have liked, There were still a few nice unpredictable moments. The comic relief was pretty good. I’m glad the philosophical aspects of the original movie were brought in too. Hats off in particular to a surprisingly emotional scene with the Brachiosaurus (you’ll know it when you see it) 😭. I was happy with the movie. Looking forward to the next one!
