Fans of Jurassic Park are divided on the reprise of the franchise – Jurassic World. While some find it unnecessary, the rest lapped it up. It doesn’t matter which side you are on as the 2015 film made enough money for the makers to announce the sequel almost immediately after its release.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom picks up three years after the first part ended. Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) works as the head of the Dinosaur Protection Group which works on the evacuation dinosaurs from Isla Nublar. She teams up with Benjamin Lockwood (James Cromwell), the former partner of John Hammond, in order to bring back the dinosaurs and keep them safe in a sanctuary. Dearing even manages to get Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) to be a part of this mission but soon they realize that they are being played. Lockwood’s right-hand man, Eli Mills (Rafe Spall) has different, almost evil plans for the dinosaurs.
This sequel outdoes the original film in every aspect.
A film like this relies heavily on the special effects and boy, are they impressive! The creatures seem almost real and the scenes with the raptors fighting each other are alone worth the ticket price. There are plenty of tense moments, most of them take place when the Indoraptor is let loose. Hats off to Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard for getting the expressions right especially since most of their scenes are filmed in front of a green screen. To lighten the mood, there are a few jokes but in general, the film delivers what it promises – mind-blowing action.
A slightly predictable plot
The plot of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom cannot be termed as innovative and experienced viewers might be able to spot a twist as it comes.
