The first reboot in 2015 should have been the last film of this franchise, being the best tribute, but the makers decided to go for a sequel. That was fine but the way has come, is not even great, when compared to the 2015 smash shit Jurassic World.
Chris Pratt returns as Owen along with Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire, reprising their roles, supported by the great Jeff Goldblum and another actress Daniella Pineda. But it all seems to be totally wasted.
Director J.A Bayona manages to fascinate you by the realistic looking dinosaurs, but the story totally fails to catch your nerve in any way possible. There is no logic in many scenes and you feel like everything happens for the movie’s sake.
The VFX driven film is more of a bore and less like a story driven one.
The actors are lost somewhere among the dinosaurs as you are able to relate yourself to them. Chris Pratt tries to hold things together but that becomes insufficient. Jeff Goldblum is wasted in this action-adventure and you are not able to see much of him. He was fantabulous in last year’s Thor: Ragnarok.
If possible, just ignore this film and hope the dinosaurs become extinct now for real, cinematically too! less

The movie depicts an amazing quality of CGI combined with the amazing skills of Chris Pratt and charm of Bryce Dallas Howard.
Although the movie was made flawlessly and with a great effort, it lacked the enthusiastic story of the original movie. The movie introduces suddenly some new characters which are completely unheard of and bit difficult to keep up. Moreover, it's a bit hard to swallow the fact that the Dinosaurs will get extinct the same way as they were originally wiped out from the face of the earth again.
The first 3 movies of the franchise were way ahead of their time and had a spine-chilling effect on its audience and would spark an interest in kids as well as adults but the new ones fail to have that effect on its audience as it looks like something you have seen before in one or the other way.
Director J. A. Bayona put quite a good amount of work in making the movie and tried to keep up with the Jurassic franchise legacy with the great CGI magic but it has to compete with the legends which thought completely out of the box and made a movie which every child remembers till date.
I'm sure that the upcoming movie Jurassic World in 2021 will be a great one with an amazing story and could revive the enthusiasm of the audience. It's a long way to go but the Hollywood has never stopped amusing its audience. less

Three years after the Jurassic World theme park was closed down, Owen and Claire return to Isla Nublar to save the dinosaurs when they learn that a once dormant volcano on the island is active and is threatening to extinguish all life there. Along the way, Owen sets out to find Blue, his lead raptor, and discovers a conspiracy that could disrupt the natural order of the entire planet. Life has found a way, again.
What’s with the haters? This movie was great and really followed through with the logical next step. I’m not sure what the nay sayers expected, but who cares? I loved the movie and the nostalgic elements in it. The storyline itself was reasonable and considering the world we live in now, not that far fetched. JW2 has put an end essentially to the story of its predecessors to open the path to a new, very different and scarier direction. If people couldn’t handle this movie, will they be able to handle what’s coming next less

Three years after the events that took place in Jurassic World, with the once thriving theme park on Isla Nublar now abandoned by human and leaving the dinosaurs on the island to roam free. However, the once dormant volcano under the island has become active again, posing an extinction level event for the Jurassic creatures that dwell there. With an almost near certainty of an eruption, the nations of the world debate the topic on what to do with this situation: should they save these primordial creatures from being wiped out or should they do nothing and leaves the dinosaurs to go extinct once again? Claire, who is now the head of the Dinosaur Protection Group, believes otherwise, refusing to let the dinosaurs be kill by the volcano. She’s then recruited by Eli Mills of the Lockwood Estate, which was established by John Hammond’s former partner Sir Benjamin Lockwood, organizing a way to get the dinosaurs off the island and to a safe and secure sanctuary. Additionally, Claire enlists the help of former colleague associate Owen who plans to go along with the mission to find the Velociraptor Blue on the island. However, when the mission on Isla Nublar goes wrong and with the volcano ready to burst, Claire and Owen learn the true agenda of Mills’ project and what he’s actually hoping to achieve. Fallen Kingdom is just simply a beautifully render feature film. Much like Jurassic World, the visual effects are top-notched, bringing to life these ancient dinosaurs (in all shapes and sizes) through the usage of modern computer CG wizardry. Thus, the whole visual effects team on Fallen Kingdom should be commended for their work on the project. Additionally, while modern visual technology utilizes to bring these dinosaurs to life, the movie still uses animatronics / puppetry for several dinosaur / human interactions. the movie does end in an interesting way. Some people might be upset by as the film ends at a point that leaves you wanting more, but I think it ends great. It sorts of leaves this Jurassic World story arc in an ominous place. Not darkly ominous (like Avengers: Infinity War), but still leaves the story being told in an uncertain / mysterious turning point. less

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
