This is when I really should have trusted my gut when it said “don’t fall for the trailer and marketing cause you know you’re gullible”!

Fallen Kingdom is set three years after the  theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs breaking out of containment and when the island’s supposedly dormant volcano decides to erupt, Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) convinces Owen (Chris Pratt) to rescue the remaining dinos because #alllivesmatter! Yeah, apparently even genetically revived prehistoric ones.  With the ‘help’ of Eli Mills (Rafe Spall), who already reeked of betrayal in the beginning of the movie, they brought their dino rescue squad to Isla Nublar only to find themselves entangled in Eli Mill’s plan to create ‘weapons’ out of the remaining dinosaurs. I swear that plot sounds familiar as hell! Didn’t that Hopkins guy from Jurassic World bring that plan up before?

So with all of them getting conned into actually doing the dirty work for Mills, the dinosaur superheroes still continued to defy every logical reason and only decided to leave when the island was engulfed by the lava. Even up to the point where they almost died, they followed the evil dudes to their ‘secret lair’ only to find out that the dinosaurs were actually transported to Lockwood’s estate.  It’s pretty clear what will happen in the end as the movie just had so much foreshadowing and cliché plots so I’m not even going to head there. It came to a disappointment to me as I thought it would pack more punch but it just felt like watching a jump-scare movie with a lot of scenes that wouldn’t even matter if you dozed off. I literally fell asleep three times during the whole movie and I had enough sleep the night before !

Overall, the only thing that shook my emotions was Blue’s injury and also the ending. Was I supposed to think about the ending subjectively? How is releasing a small portion of dinosaurs into the modern civilization going to help with human existence?  I can’t even. Does this lead to another Jurassic World movie where they will have to face the consequences of the kid’s action and tell Maisie not to interfere when adults are making decisions next time?  Who knows. One thing’s for sure, to paraphrase the misused Ian Malcolm in this movie, studios find a way.

Despite it being a disappointing movie, Jurassic World : Fallen Kingdom is quite a accurate representation of the vicious animal trafficking industry. Harming and using animals for our benefit is never okay cause the consequences might bite you back. Literally. And they really should. I’d give this Jurassic train wreck a 5/10.
