Although I usually go into a film fairly open minded, I honestly didn’t have high hopes for this film. I enjoyed the first Jurassic World immensely and was worried that the sequel just wasn’t needed and wouldn’t help the franchise. I was delightfully wrong.
I felt as if some areas of the film were inevitable. So predictable for a sequel and were bound to happen. The kiss between Owen and Claire was no where near needed or timed well but obvious it was going to happen. I mean she was literally about to be eaten by a dinosaur but sure give her a kiss Owen no worries… other than these clear predictions it was thoroughly entertaining! The concept of the film was a nice addition to the franchise and did work into it nicely which I did not expect.
As an animal lover, every time I saw a sad looking dinosaur my heart broke. The scene where the long necked dinosaur (don’t know names) is staring at the boat as they sail off and the lava is coming for him killed me inside. I was literally nearly crying. If a film makes me emotional like that, I know I really enjoyed it and was really into it.
The action scenes were well done, slightly predictable but not to the point where they weren’t enjoyable. There was plenty more to the film than the trailer showed which I liked. There’s nothing I hate more than when the trailer shows the only good bits of an entire film so I was happy that this one didn’t. The ‘new’ dinosaur storyline was a bit repetitive to the first film and having to kill this ‘new’ dinosaur because it was violent. Very very similar to the first film. Even with this it was still interesting to watch but if that kind of thing puts you off I wouldn’t recommend. If you don’t mind this then definitely give it a go. It was interesting and surprisingly more entertaining than I ever thought it would be.
Hope you enjoyed this review I’ll be back on Friday with a new review.
See you there,
