Jurassic World: Dominion Review

If you like my reviews for the first and second jurassic world When you read the movies, you see that I wasn’t a fan at all. Despite the commercial success, it’s not shocking to hear. The Jurassic franchise is as lovable as it is divisive these days (again, in fact, just like Star Wars).

But despite my already low expectations, this last part seemed rather intriguing. The trailers pointed out aspects I’ve always wanted to see in Jurassic Park Sequel: a movie where dinosaurs are not isolated on an island, but roam freely around the world. Biologists also refer to these as “invasive species.” For example, there has been an epidemic of the African ring-necked parrot in the Netherlands for a number of years. The presence of this colorful bird is great for us, but this is often unpleasant news for the local fauna. Then try to imagine someone shooting dinosaurs! This might sound great, but it would be a disaster for nature.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park She was already flirting with the idea, even though it was no more than a T.Rex cruising around town. and trailers Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom It gave us the impression that most of the movie is about a planet where dinosaurs coexisted with humans and animals. However, this only happens in the last five minutes of this movie, how about fallen kingdom Perhaps the most redundant part of this trilogy.

Cowboy Owen

Dino Planet is not everyone’s horrific doomsday scenario. Daredevil Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) now begins his career as a dino cowboy with his work experience as a dino Freak Funk. Using only a lasso, he overcomes a wild Parasaurolophus weighing 3 tons! How does it manage? Well, that trick he used in previous movies to tame a velociraptor seems to work on any dinosaur: you extend your right hand in front of you two meters away, and the animal obeys his telepathy. So, children, remember: if you are being chased by a bloodthirsty predator; Just turn towards the monster and extend your hand. It always works!

Jurassic World Dominion 4 movie review (1)

When their genetically engineered adopted daughter Massey (Isabella Sermon) is kidnapped by a mysterious organization, Owen and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) track her path around the world on an Indiana Jones scavenger hunt. In Malta, the couple ends up on the black market where dinosaurs are traded. This idea is also a valuable addition to the film series. In previous films they wanted to breed dinosaurs to use as weapons of war, which seems to me an implausible idea. In an age where wars are fought with drones and cyber attacks, a trained velociraptor will be neither effective nor effective as a weapon, unless Russian trolls find a way to use velociraptor memes for propaganda. If dinosaurs were alive today, I think they would be treated primarily as exotic animals. No doubt this would lead to the trade in Triceratops horns, or the fight of giant cocks underground.

Mexican Dino Showdown

Another thing this movie cleverly emphasizes is that the wild T.Rex wouldn’t be the greatest threat to our species in this scenario. In wheat fields, grasshoppers 30 cm long are also visible. And this is how we get to know the original again Jurassic Park ejaculate. Dr. Eli Sattler (Laura Dern) fears these animals will breed too soon and destroy the world’s food supply. Along with other familiar faces Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), you sneak into Biosyn, a center for dinosaur research with seemingly good intentions. Biosyn Park serves as a kind of dinosaur sanctuary, the perfect version of Jurassic Park. It is in this center that only “realistic” dinosaurs are created, without genetic manipulation. Dino fanatics have been proposing for years to make Jurassic Park with a feathered velociraptor, and we finally got it!

Jurassic World Dominion 3 (1) review

Well, of course I mean the realistic dinosaurs compared to the previous Jurassic Park sequences. If you just want to watch really cool dinosaurs, I’d rather recommend the new documentary series prehistoric planet to watch. This original Apple TV+ CGI features much nicer dinosaurs. The animals are more creatively designed, and they also act like real animals rather than monsters from the one-dimensional movies. On the other hand, it’s great that TV series outperform Hollywood movies in production quality. But this is a file Jurassic Park sequel. Much of the charm of the first movie was about how realistic and imposing the animals were.

Among the newcomers to the dinosaur crew is Therizinosaurus, one of the coolest but most represented dinosaurs in movies. in prehistoric planet We have seen this animal as a peace-loving giant that lives on plants and honey. In this movie he is more like a Freddy Krueger than a dinosaur. He has an inexplicable tendency to stab all passersby with his long claws. I didn’t know vegetarians could be violent!

The main villain of the dinosaur in this movie is Giganotosaurus, as it is the new rival of the T.rex. In a teaser for this movie, which premiered last year, we saw a prologue in which Giganotosaurus and T.Rex fight each other for millions of years, before Rex is bitten by a mosquito and thus transfers his DNA. This indicates that both predators have a rivalry that began in prehistoric times. As silly as this sounds, it at least gives the animals one more reason to fight back in the end. Because the climax of the movie is a kind of Mexican standoff between T.Rex, Therizinosaurus, and Giganotosaurus. That’s why I don’t understand why they cut the intro from the movie.

Guilty jurassic pleasures

With a lot of interesting ideas, new dinos and the inclusion of old representatives Jurassic World: Dominion In my opinion, the funniest movie in the entire Jurassic World trilogy. However, I can’t deny that the whole thing suffers from a very messy script. Old and new actors have their own story for most of the movie. And the way they end up meeting feels completely random like a dinosaur duel in the climax. Dinosaurs have long since ceased to be a driving factor in the story at this climax. They are just obstacles in our heroes’ mission to infiltrate the laboratory.

Jurassic World Dominion 1 review (1)

And I haven’t even talked about the bad guy yet. An attentive viewer will realize that this must represent Lewis Dodgson, the original Dino Park competitor who recruited Dennis Nidry as a spy. This character is now played by another actor (Campbell Scott). And while the old actors are around, picking a crook out of the first seems like a good idea Jurassic Park His role adds a little at the end. He plays another evil billionaire who thinks he can control nature, only to fall victim to karma. This franchise already had no shortage of such uninteresting scammers! I still think it would have been better to make Henry Wu (BD Wong) the main villain, as he plays a major role throughout the trilogy.

However, I must say that not all shortcomings are fully responsible for this film. Dominion It is something for the Jurassic World trilogy in many ways Heavenly Rise It was for the last Star Wars trilogy. It’s the final chapter that bears the burden of completing an already directionless film series. Lacking solid stories to build on, the filmmakers had to suck a lot of their thumbs up.

Jurassic fans can really agree on only one thing: the first Jurassic Park The film remains unbeatable number one, and all the sequels can only be defended as deceptive pleasures. Which movie is number two for you really depends on what you’re looking for. jurassic world (2015) was the bombshell of ’90s nostalgia, but with weak characters and a plot around a dino-hybrid, it looked more like a glorified sci-fi channel movie than a sci-fi channel blockbuster. Jurassic Park sequel. fallen kingdom (2018) Tried to be more of a horror movie. But since the plot barely moves, the movie is largely a waste of time. Jurassic World: Dominion It is the height of chaos but adventure. And while the old cast doesn’t get very strong material to work with, it’s still nice to see Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum together again. If this franchise continues, I’d like to see the ideas explored in more depth, for example, in series like The west† So until then for me, that’s not much better but it’s the most likely Jurassic part…NA lost world

★★ 1/2 ☆☆
