Resistance is futile. Jurassic World is a monster, a juggernaut, a box office bulldozer, a T-Rex of a movie. You can’t avoid it, so you might as well give in and enjoy. That’s what this site said back in 2015 when the Jurassic World reboot was released.

Jurassic world: Fallen Kingdom is an amazing movie. It had just the right ingredients for a kid, such as Comedy, Thrills and also a bit of Romance. I saw this film with a group of 5. Our general reaction was that we liked the action scenes in the movie. The scene when the T-Rex saved Chris Pratt, and Bryce Dallas Howard on Isla Nublar with a bad ass roar with all the fire and smoke in the back made us look at each other with big grins on our faces.

We also found the dinosaur auction a very interesting scene as it was both scary and funny. It was personally my favourite scene in the movie. At the end of the film I saw a young boy with a toy T-Rex, and a Dinosaur T-Shirt with a great smile on his face. This fit in perfectly with the last movie, with the abandoned Jurassic park featured in the film.

The running theme in this film is ‘Do we allow dinosaurs to be extinct again, or do we save them?’ I think this theme is made very clear as the kids will definitely understand it. The action sequences worked, I definitely felt the tension in the film as it got me on the edge of my seat. I also thought they made the audience care about the raptor Blue as it stressed the importance of her type of species as well as the role she played in the previous movie as a friend of Chris Pratt. It really made me care about Blue as a character. The fighting scenes between the dinosaurs are quite confusing as they look similar. I feel the dinosaur creators could’ve done a better job making each dinosaur more distinctive. The fact many scenes were at night time didn’t help. Overall, I really enjoyed this film. I would rate it a 4/5 because I thought this film was perfect in almost every way but the fact the last bit of the film was night time, and it was hard to make anything out means I can’t give it a full 5.
