The highly anticipated sequel to the reboot of a classic hits big again with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The film immediately kicks off with action and amps up the stakes as it develops. Although the film lacks the element of surprise, as you can immediately tell who the bad guys are, watching dinosaurs escaping is still exciting to watch, and will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the entirety of the film.

Three years after the park fell, Claire works tirelessly to save the dinosaurs from the island before a volcano wipes them out, again. On the other hand, her now ex-ex love Owen is happy in his retirement, building a cabin; only the call to save Blue brings him back into the action. A few new characters are introduced and each bring an equally interesting personality to life. Scared of dinosaurs and computer whiz Franklin is the perfect foil for the brave, adventurous dinosaur loving vet Zia.

Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt still work well together in the film and although they never quite give off the right chemistry for romance, their action and comedy chemistry is perfectly in sync. Pratt’s dry humour and sarcasm is still a crowd pleaser with the audience eating up every minute of screen time he shares. A nice little cameo from Jeff Goldblum, star of the original series, sums the film up and is a launching pad for the final installment in this new trilogy — Welcome to Jurassic World.
