Three years have passed since the events of Jurassic World, and the dinosaurs have been left to their own devices on Isla Nublar.  Director, J.A. Bayona feels like the perfect director to take control of Fallen Kingdom after proving he can handle large-scale destruction with confidence but is equally capable of delivering intimate scares. Visual effects have indeed come a long way since Steven Spielberg’s ‘Jurassic Park’ in 1993.

Having massive scary dinosaurs trying to eat humans or fighting each other is always going to be brilliant and the Fallen Kingdom has a lot of both. A dormant volcano on the abandoned island of Isla Nublar threatens to bury the revived dinosaurs. This catastrophic natural disaster compels Owen (Chris Pratt) & Claire ( Bryce Dallas ) to team up once more as they try to save these magnificent creatures. If you thought there was going to be too much CGI in the Fallen Kingdom, you’re wrong. There’s a surprising amount of practical effects on display.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are both great performers and familiarity with their characters allow a semblance of emotional investment who continue their infuriating relationship. The movie excels when it allows the real stars – the CGI dinosaurs – to shine, and roar louder than most of their predecessors. It’s a brave choice to literally blow up everything that’s come before but one that definitely pays off in the Fallen Kingdom. Enjoy the movie this weekend in theatres near you.
