Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
DIRECTOR JA Bayona
CAST Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Jeff Goldblum, Toby Jones
Three years on from the destruction of the Jurassic World theme park, a volcano is about to explode and there are still dinosaurs on Isla Nublar to be saved…buckle up!
Three years after the destruction of the Jurassic World theme park, Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) return to Isla Nublar to save the remaining dinosaurs from a volcano that’s about to erupt. They soon encounter terrifying new breeds of dinosaurs while uncovering a conspiracy that threatens the entire planet. Talented director JA Bayona (The Impossible, A Monster Calls) brings his skill with action adventure and a dash of the macabre to the franchise.
(2018 USA / Spain 128 mins)
This fun, pacy addition to the dino disaster franchise doesn’t do much that’s particularly new – though what it does, it does with a fair whack of panache. That’s largely thanks to gifted Spanish director JA Bayona, who brings to bear the macabre touches that made The Orphanage such a spooky treat. Short of bringing Mr DNA back as a flesh-craving zombie, Fallen Kingdom is as close as the ‘Jurassic’ movies are going to come to a horror film and it gels nicely with a franchise that’s always had a gleefully sadistic streak. It’s at its most fun when things (limbs, mainly) are going bump in the dark in a third act that pays homage to classic horror films. Phil De Semlyen, Time Out
