About the film
Director: J.A. Bayona
Actors: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas HowardDinosaurs gone wild!
Can dinosaurs and humans coexist peacefully?
Ok so we are treading the same ground here and Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom mutates the remaining DNA from Steven Spielberg’s original movie into a menagerie of various raptors and rexes, but it’s still a hell of a lot of fun.
Director J. A. Bayona builds tension and atmospheric unease (the horrors of the creepy old secret-filled house,The Orphanage, the big old natural disaster The Impossible, the colossus choreography of A Monster Calls) and gets to fully embrace his horror-movie sensibilities.
The film opens several years after Jurassic World. The park on Isla Nublar has fallen into ruin, and an active volcano is now threatening the lives of all the creatures left on the island. Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) pivots to dino-rights activism & Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) busts out his signature Indiana Jones cocktail of can-do heroism and deadpan sarcasm.
But of course, everything is not as it seems.
This movie needs to be enjoyed in a setting that is as big and as loud as you can get it. Don't wait for Netflix; it's too much fun in the cinema.
