Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom gets off to a flying start and then totally shits the bed in the final act. Really feels like they just wanted to put the pieces in place for the big idea they have for Jurassic World 3 and had to find a way to get there somehow.
For the first hour I was loving it and thought it was the best since The Lost World. Cracking set pieces and was genuinely a bit scared at times.
It gets fucking stupid though. James Cromwell’s grandaughter is a fucking CLONE. WHAT?! WHY?! Also fucking hate the genetically altered dinos. Wasn’t the Indominus Rex already part raptor? So then what the fuck is the Indo Raptor?. Fucking annoyed that Henry Wu makes it out alive AGAIN. Also the auction prices were obscenely low.
Really annoys me that Chris Pratt basically has super powers too. He takes out about 6 highly trained mercenaries in a row without breaking a sweat. They completely missed the point as to why people liked Alan Grant and Ian Malcolm. Don’t know why they got two new annoying cast members instead of bringing back Jake Johnson and Lauren Lapkus.
All in all I’d say if you like the series see it for the first half, maybe leave at an hour and 20 minutes and read the rest of the plot on Wikipedia.
