New Jurassic world Still Has Some Surprises Up its Sleeves

Chris Pratt in "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom"

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is an exciting twist on the almost overdone Jurassic Park concept.

Over and over we have seen the Jurassic theme park take a turn for the worst when one of the more vicious dinosaurs escapes from its enclosure and the humans have to run away. This time, however, the humans aren’t just running away from the dinosaurs, the dinosaurs have found themselves in danger of the humans.

Former Jurassic World manager turned dinosaur rights activist Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) reteams with ex-partner Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) for a rescue mission. The park’s founder (James Cromwell) wants to re-home the dinosaurs to Sangri-La island, where they can roam free and safe from the volcanic island they currently inhabit. Naturally, not everyone’s intentions are as honest as they at first seem and things soon get ugly.

Pratt and Howard have more on-screen chemistry this time around and more care has definitely been taken to make the characters credible and three-dimensional. Watching their performance is certainly more enjoyable rather than cliched in the rescue-mission sequel.

The special effects, as expected, are incredible. Each time a Jurassic Park movie comes out it feels like cinema has reached its visual pinnacle and then they somehow manage to top expectations with the next one. The destructive volcanic eruption sequence in the middle of the movie was mind-blowing and if it’s even possible, the dinosaurs seem even more realistic and frightening than before.

Overall, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom successfully kept us on our toes and had some genuinely exhilarating and terrifying moments. If you haven’t seen the movie yet because you can’t help but feel you’ve seen it all before, we can assure you that the Jurassic World sequel certainly has some surprises up its sleeves.
