Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Claire and Owen are back together in this fourth installment of the Jurassic movie franchise. The dinosaurs on Isla Nublar are about to be wiped out thanks to an erupting volcano. Claire and Owen travel to the island on Lochwood’s request to help track as many of the dinosaurs as possible and rescue them, including Owen’s raptor named Blue.
However, an evil businessman is out for his own agenda and wants Blue to create a hybrid creature known as an Indoraptor, a new genetically-modified dinosaur. The Indoraptor, without Blue’s blood, escapes and goes after Lochwood’s granddaughter, Maisie.
There were a few twists and turns in this movie, but still predictable. One thing, Maisie and the Indoraptor’s connection, wasn’t expanded on. In other words, there was no clear indication of what the dinosaur would do with her. I suspect it thought of her as kin or related to her but it wasn’t expanded upon at all.
I did like the movie but it has a lot of uniformity from the previous movies that distracted from the story. And some points, like the Brachiosaurus waiting on the pier was just silly. It’s a huge beast, why wouldn’t it wade out into the water instead of staying behind and getting burned up?
My rating 3 stars out of 5
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, and historical romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
