The fifth installment of the franchise is entertaining for sure but provided nothing that could recreate the magic of the original.
This time Isla Nublar, the island where it all happened, is facing a volcanic threat. The govt decided not to protect the dinausaurs, else where, a team is recruited by Mills(Rafe Spall) to protect 11 species and carry them to the town. Owen and Claire are given responsibility of capturing the lethal velociraptor. Mills however has other idea of selling them off. A new species Indominous Raptor, created with the help of original genetic experts, does provided some thrilling moments towards the end. After much of the drama, all the captive species are freed into the forest surrounding the town and thus the plot of next installment is revealed.
Director Bayona does provided adequate depth to the interesting plot and made the first half an edge of the seat thriller, but its the second half that needed to be reworked. More of the words and lesser of the action lowers the interest level. The actors did their best to keep the pace going but ultimately its the script that let them down. Lack of shock enduring scenes and dab background score underlined director's lack in conviction. However, the camera work needs to be applauded as this may well be the most beautifully picturised of all its predecessors.
Jurassic World franchise, have made T-Rex and Velociraptor helpful and more of the heroes. Their ferociousness had made the original film a cult classic and that is something needed badly as other genetically created dinausaurs haven't looked convincing.
Take the original off your mind before stepping on to this one as this may prove to be genuinely entertaining and one time watch....however, better said then done, the comparison is inevitable.
My Rating: 3/5 less

We are back to the world of terrifying, screeching dinosaurs and greedy, malicious humans. Unlike its prequel and more like the first ever film in the Jurassic park franchise , Jurassic world: Fallen Kingdom focuses quite a lot on fear; fear of the audience. Dinosaurs unexpectedly shoot up from the depths of the sea, open doors with their blood thirsty claws and bite off human heads like they are their midday snacks. Spanish Director J.A Bayona makes sure that we are sitting on the edge of our seats throughout the run time of this gripping motion picture. Even the weather; stormy , rainy and unpredictable is used to bring out the situation the characters of the movie are stuck in. That being said, this is not a horror film and never do its proceedings leave you pale and in a cold sweat. It is more of a thriller/ adventure film. Even the CGI and animatronics over here are quite impressive. However the one place where Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom falters is the ending. While the ending of this film will serve as the beginning of the next film in the franchise it just seems improbable. I mean obviously this whole film is improbable but the whole motive here was to rescue the dinosaurs without harming anyone and the ending compromised that idea to a great extent . BryceDallas Howard’s introduction scene has the camera focusing on her high heels.(A clear dig on the controversy that ensued after the actress was widely criticised for sporting high heels and running around an island full of dinosaurs in the previous Jurassic World film) She does a good job and plays her part with conviction. Chris Pratt who most of us remember as Star Lord akaQuill from The Guardians Of The Galaxy franchise is here as well and is in top form. All in all it is safe to say that unlike the dinosaurs you will not need rescuing as the film keeps you thoroughly engrossed. Clip your nails before entering the theatre, Jurassic World : Fallen Kingdom is quite a nail biting experience!
Ps: Do not wait for the post credit scene it’s 5 seconds long and you would rather be anywhere else! less
