This week I watched Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. I certainly liked the first one. Dinosaurs are awesome and Chris Pratt is handsome, it’s a winning combination. Obviously I’m not the only who thinks so, the theater was packed. There must be quite the market for Dinosaurs and/or sexy, adorable men and so I had high hopes.

Three years after the smashing success of Jurassic World (the fifth-highest-grossing film of all time), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom takes audiences back to Isla Nublar for another popcorn blockbuster adventure featuring everyone’s favorite group of reptile offerings. But unlike Jurassic World where we saw mostly one dinosaur creating most of the mayhem on the island, Fallen Kingdom takes audiences back to the island where new dangers arise not only from the dinosaurs, but also from other parties. As the story plays out, it becomes obvious that Fallen Kingdom serves as a reinvention of the franchise. But luckily, the end results are roaring, which make it superior to its predecessor and take the franchise in a bold, new direction. Credit for that goes to director J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage), who delivers another fun-filled dinosaur adventure full of dazzling action and nightmarish scares that make Fallen Kingdom the best Jurassic Park movie since the original.
In 2015 we saw the return of Star Wars, Mad Max, The Griswolds and the T-Rex…. Who came out on top? Check out my top 10 movies of 2015 right here.
This movie is based on one premise: Dinosaurs are awesome. If you want to see a movie about that, this one is for you and it’s the best one yet. Every moment of this movie was aware of this, every scene served to instil the awe of interacting with something of that scale.
