Real friends will enjoy the small things that pop up from previous movies.
After a quarter-century the franchise may be terminally long in the teeth; much of this fifth iteration is absurd, both intentionally and un. Yet it’s also funny, intriguingly dark and visually sumptuous.
Fallen Kingdom understands that, as much as Jurassic Park has the shape of an action movie, its roots are in horror, and Bayona takes evident glee in drawing out his scares.
Bayona not only nods to the histories of classic monster movies and the legacy of original Jurassic helmer Steven Spielberg; he brings his own experience to bear, treating monsters like actual characters and trapping us in a vast mansion that's as full of secrets as the site of his breakthrough 2007 film The Orphanage.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom returns to Isla Nublar four years after the events of the last film (2015's Jurassic World). Humans have abandoned the island, and the very dinosaurs that destroyed the park now roam free. But when a volcano threatens to drive the impossible inhabitants into extinction once again, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a rescue expedition to save the remaining dinosaurs from the pouring lava. Oh, and there also may be a massive conspiracy to uncover along the way – one that could change the nature of life on the planet forever.
Dinosaurs, lava, conspiracies – what more could you ask from a summer blockbuster? If you answered, “The return of Jeff Goldblum as Ian Malcolm” then you’re in luck! The film, directed by J.A. Bayona, also stars BD Wong, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Toby Jones and Rafe Spall.
