Although each Jurassic movie is fated to essentially repeat the same idea-oh no, dinosaurs!-this new era has come up with ways to surprise, terrify, and inspire, which is enough to keep the heart of the franchise beating.
Like an ancient volcano thundering to life, the "Jurassic" realm keeps roaring onto film screens with unexpected energy. The fifth episode in the series, "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom," is the latest and arguably greatest of all.
[It's] is a movie that pounds us with a pretentious, nearly operatic score while indulging in B-movie clichés and calling for the main characters to make idiotic decisions just to keep the story rolling.
Sequel to the 2015 franchise revival wastes its stars and feels like a T. Rex-sized cashgrab. Why cast Pratt, that rare movie star with a comic's sense of mischief, and then reduce him to a pawn who runs around hitting his marks like a robot?
The franchise's latest entry takes its cues from the knuckleheaded plotting and CGI overload of Jurassic World, where super-sized dinos face dumb capitalists and bleeding-heart environmentalists toil to save the day. We all know the drill.
The first "Jurassic World" was, quite simply, not a good ride. "Fallen Kingdom" is an improvement, but it's the first "Jurassic" film to come close to pretending it isn't a ride at all, and as a result it ends up being just a passable ride.
