Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Spoiler Review
In the Jurassic franchise’s 2015 restart, the “world”, in the Disney World sense, called Jurassic World, was a walloping park, with intensifying attractions and places for families to hand out their cash. Finally the sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom bids farewell to the park for good, not just carrying away the dinos off the island but clearing itself from the genre of trappings in the previous four films.
Three years after the nightmare happened on the sparse Isla Nublar, a newly active volcano, Mount Sibo, is impendent to vanish the remaining dinosaurs on the island. The American activists push for a rescue mission, which was further revealed to be a plan for stealing them. A committee of lawmakers hears from an expert, whose advice boils down to “the genie’s out of the bottle, folks,” or, perhaps, “life will find a way.” Yep, that would be Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), whose involvement in the film is limited to just this testimony but these lines may be teasing a bigger role in the near future.
Claire is summoned by the billionaire Benjamin Lockwood (James Cromwell), the one who we came to know was John Hammond’s colleague in reviving the extinct species before Hammond take the other road and built the first Jurassic Park. Near death, Lockwood wants to make things right for the species he helped to create. He has made an island which will be suited for the animals (dinosaurs) to stay away from the human species and live their life without any disturbance and this can only be done with the help of Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) helping to relocate as many animals as she can before Isla Nublar gets demolished. But she can’t do this alone and hence, she wanted Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) who has been off building a cabin in the mountains since their relationship ran out of coal.
After arriving on Isla Nublar, both of them realize their plan of stealing the dinosaurs for their own wicked purposes and they must sneak in to sabotage their plan. The evacuation leads them to a secret dino zoo on the American mainland, under Lockwood’s mansion, where mad scientists are holding that beasts hinted at in Jurassic World like the Indoraptor, which gets genes from both the Indominus Rex and the intelligent and cunning like humans, Blue: the Velociraptor(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom).
Claire and Owen meet Lockwood’s bright and curious granddaughter Maisie (Isabella Sermon), who has just learned of all the wicked stuff being planned in the mansion. With Clare’s partners Zia (Daniella Pineda), as a paleo-veterinarian and Franklin (Justice Smith), as a tech nerd, the group must keep these dangerous animals out of the grasp of arms dealers, Russian monarchs and the dudes who apparently just want to hunt them for sport.
Trapped on the edge of the dying Isla Nublar, for instance, a magnificent lone animal, the Brontosauruses, stands on its hind legs as it’s consumed in the smoke and flame of the volcano’s lava. Then, at the mansion, the auction starts by bringing the dinosaurs, one by one, in cages between the audience. During the auction, came the Indoraptor which was made with the DNA fusion of Indominus Rex and Blue, the Velociraptor. Indorpator’s intelligence and cunning behaviour was shown in a future event where a hunter shoots a sedating needle at it and it acts like it was sedated but was not.
It was just acting so that it could bring the prey inside the cage to eat him as its food. This was quite a cool way to portray the Indoraptor’s qualities and skills. Then at the end, of all the Indoraptor chasing the group to, possibly, eat them as its food, Blue came in and with its intelligence, killed the Indoraptor and then screams in the way T-Rex did in the first movie.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Final Verdict
The screenwriters don’t seem to grasp the economics of a world ruled by the megarich. When a stainless-steel small object by Jeff Koons can be sold for almost $60 million, no auctioneer would allow a last-of-its-kind dinosaur to go for less than half that. Likely goes in the movie. The bid keeps on going higher and higher in each of the monsters. Moreover, the bid for the Indoraptor, which was just a prototype, started with $20 million even though it was not for sale. Just to use it as a weapon (as it follows the commands of its master), the bid even went to $30 million.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ends with an act that is just about impossible to believe, like DNA, is driven solely by the need to replicate itself. This is said to be the second film in a trilogy. But Fallen Kingdom’s closing scenes seem deep that aims on something far bigger, like a Planet of the Apes-style series that has just begun. You don’t recreate reality in a film’s final frames without contemplating to stack up things for as long as the public will keep buying tickets if future chapters are this exciting, that’s probably going to be a while.
