Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (12A)

Science Fiction, Drama, Adventure

Fantasy adventure sequel in which the remaining dinosaurs at the former Jurassic World resort are threatened by an erupting volcano.

The critical consensus

The fear factor is back. This is a Jurassic sequel that plays it both adrenaline-pumpingly huge and thrillingly small. A summer ride that will drive kids out of their minds, and maybe even give the parents nightmares.

After a first half that suggests franchise fatigue is setting in, Fallen Kingdom zooms in for some scarily good set-pieces.

***(*)(*)Jamie Graham, Total Film, 05/06/2018

JA Bayona’s adventure boasts some passable set pieces, but the plot is contrived, the characters fatigued, the cliches abundant – and the beasties t-rexecrable.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 05/06/2018

The film has such momentum that we hardly notice the holes in the plotting.

Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 05/06/2018

Those dinosaurs are at it again in this overloaded but entertaining fifth entry in the franchise.

***(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 06/06/2018

Forget evolution, this franchise needs a hard reset.

The latest instalment in the genetically modified franchise could use some new ideas.

**(*)(*)(*)Simran Hans, The Observer, 10/06/2018

t’s nothing you’ve not seen before and it’s unlikely to win any awards, but as blockbusters go it does exactly what is required for its financial bankers who are looking to double their $170m investment before releasing the final part of the trilogy in post-Brexit 2021. So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
