Jurassic World Dominion Review

Tags : 

Four years after the destruction of Isla Nublar, dinosaurs now live–and hunt–alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures in a new Era.

Why did I come to this movie again?

While nothing has been as good as the first one, I do enjoy a good dinosaur eating stupid people movie. Plus, the characters aren’t bad.

Characters

I probably should have watched the prior movie before going to see this one, because I didn’t remember much about the girl. You know, the dumb one that runs off and gets captured? Her teenage angst was a little too unbridled for my taste.

As for everyone else, I got what I expected. I liked the new characters: the pilot and the guy who worked at Biosyn.

Unlike the newer Star Wars movies, this show gave us what the fans wanted…all of the characters in the same place at the same time. First movie crew, check. Latest movie crew, check. T-Rex, check.

Was anyone stellar? Nah, but I got what I expected and was happy about it.

Did I care what happened?

Sure. Partly because I was looking for callbacks to the previous films, of which there were plenty. I didn’t get bored—although I was nervous about the motorcycle chase scene, because those things have been overdone to death. I suspended my disbelief and just enjoyed the show as it came. I wasn’t riveted to my seat, but I didn’t drift off.

A lot of people have complained about the giant locust swarm. Frankly, that kept me watching, because I’d rather deal with raptors than giant grasshoppers. Gross.

Plot Holes

There are dinosaurs roaming the world—that alone constitutes a handful of plot holes that they didn’t address. Like, how can the dinosaurs be living in cold places? I thought that didn’t work. Also, did all of the dinosaurs suddenly start fertilizing their own eggs? If not, how in the world did the multiply so fast? And if raptors and t-rexes are attacking campers, why are they still alive?

Not to mention the end. While I loved the dino fight, I couldn’t stop wondering why all of the dinos had been brought together like that and not sedated.

There were quite a few small plot holes, but only a few yanked me out of the story. For a Jurassic Park movie, that’s not bad.

How many times did I yawn?

None. The hubby didn’t go to sleep. I did roll my eyes a few times, so I’m going to count those. Particularly the montage of final images. Uh, no.

Cool Factor

Despite not nearly enough stupid people getting eaten, this movie was fun! Some of the baby dinosaurs looked kind of bad, but it was probably an artistic choice. Seeing so many different types of dinosaurs on screen was cool.

The End

It was fine (except those last images that made me cringe). Everything got resolved, but nothing is final. There was action and a dino fight and good times all around.

Overall Enjoyment

This might be because I saw the hot pile of garbage that was The Secrets of Dumbledore right before this movie, and everyone had said how bad this one was, but I actually liked this film. I’d watch it again if I saw it streaming. I wanted the cast of characters to have an adventure with dinosaurs. I got that, and it made me happy. Plus, popcorn.
