Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is basically The Lost World: Jurassic Park. So shouldn’t it be Fallen Kingdom: Jurassic World? The most obvious similarity is a focus on animal rights issues with dinosaurs. As well as a lot more dumb decisions than the previous movie. Even if Fallen Kingdom did make about as much at the box-office. It turns out Jurassic Park/World was for some reason built atop an island with an active volcano. So Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing respectfully. In order to save the dinosaurs from a new extinction. Only their character motivations are confusingly swapped.
The guy who loved and trained raptors doesn’t care if they die. While the cold business lady is a dinosaur rights advocate. There’s character development and then there’s doing a complete 180. Everything on Isla Nublar is exciting from outrunning the volcano to plunging over a cliff in that sphere thing. However illogical it may be. Then things get really weird when the remaining dinosaurs are taken to a mansion. A confined space near civilization that copies the San Diego scene. They’re brought there to be sold off as weapons to the highest bidder. Including another Frankenstein-esque dinosaur called the Indoraptor. It’s fight against Blue is the second best fight in a girl’s bedroom.
Fallen Kingdom mostly suffers from recycled ideas, annoying supporting characters, and false advertisement. Jeff Goldblum is only in one scene at the beginning and end. The T-Rex is just there to eat things, pose, and roar. Justice Smith is only there to scream and complain. While the cloning process is taken to bizarre new territory. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens the door to interesting possibilities, but its way to get there is ridiculous.
