GTTG film review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Our review rating (out of 5): ♥♥♥
Plot summary:  Well ultimately all the Jurassic Park movies are about dinosaurs chasing people! However, broadly speaking, the story centres on there being a volcano that’s about to erupt thereby killing off all the dinosaurs on the island and a group of people intent on saving them.

What we liked: The whole series is fun entertainment and this movie continues in the same vein. Lots of action, special effects and a few lighter moments – you know what you’re getting when you watch a Jurassic movie. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are great as the leads, but Daniela Pineda and Justice Smith add a touch of extra sparkle and entertainment to the core group. It’s great to see Jeff Goldblum appearing too. In some ways this film makes you feel some sympathy for at least some of the dinosaurs which is effective and it certainly is a blockbuster movie.

What we didn’t like: Don’t watch this movie expecting great plot lines – there is a loose story but it doesn’t really all add up, but that’s also not the point of a movie such as this. The ending wasn’t great – assuming it has been set up for a further movie in the franchise, we hope it’s not going in the direction it looks set to based on the final scenes as that really has the potential to not go well!
