January 15, 2019
The poorest of the dinosaur franchise dwells in pointless plot directions and harmful comedy tones. [Full review in Spanish].
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 9, 2019
Overall, it is not groundbreaking, and does not live up to its hype, but is a fun, action-packed film that has a potential to be more depending on the sequel.
January 8, 2019
Characters are barely developed, their motivations seem flimsy, and the film's third act (set in a cavernous private mansion) is plain ridiculous.

With all the behinds-the-scene stuff, you get lost. You just want to see dinosaurs trample stuff...still, the kind of summer film that you want.

This isn't a great movie but it delivers a high-intensity energy that's nearly impossible not to at least mildly enjoy - if you accept this sequel for what it is.

Darkly moving (I never thought I'd weep for a diplodocus). The franchise can't go forward, its eternal weakness - but Bayona mixes it up with meta wit and verve. Goldblum is an occasional, iconic presence; I almost believed the cod-philosophy he spouts.

I left the theater here, respecting the technical achievements but shrugging at how shoddy the premise was it all hinged upon.

FALLEN KINGDOM Brings Action, Forgets Characters, Awe

Fans of this series might find something to like here (I did) but others should steer clear.

This movie is the epitome of dumb fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
November 7, 2018
There is one scene that provides any amount of decent action, and even that feels like a bad ripoff of the Brontosaurus stampede from Peter Jackson's "King Kong.
Full Review | Original Score: F
November 5, 2018
Fallen Kingdom is vibrant and broad, but lacks the emotional depth and message (director J.A.) Bayona attempts to infuse.
November 4, 2018
There's nothing wrong with the movie-as-theme-park-ride concept but the ineptitude of the script knows no ends and makes it hard to buy into the supposed fun. Fallen Kingdom is a cash grab, pure and simple, and a lazy one at that.
Full Review | Original Score: C
November 1, 2018
The thrill of dinosaurs invading our cineplexes has gone extinct.
Full Review | Original Score: D-
October 31, 2018
Bayona's adrenaline-fuelled, sometimes emotional, often nightmarishly scary effort is brought roaringly to life by the Jurassic stars of the show.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 31, 2018
It takes everything that didn't work about the last movie and makes that the focus, telling an incoherent and laughable story that feels like it was written by an eight-year-old...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/10
October 30, 2018
Credit where due to Fallen Kingdom - it at least finally feels like they've left the story in a place they can't take back.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5
October 30, 2018
Bayona's direction is so stylish and confident that he's able to paper over the movie's narrative flaws and make for an engrossing experience that feels at times like a classic Jurassic movie and at others like a gothic horror movie in the Del Toro mould.
Full Review | Original Score: B
October 30, 2018
What's most disheartening about all this is the knowledge that there's going to be at least one more installment in the series...
October 30, 2018
It's visually impressive, and the fact that it even exists is a wonder in and of itself, but it's also slow, ponderous, and has a brain the size of a walnut.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
