JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM

The International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List of endangered species has exceeded 16,000 including: Amur Leopard, Black Rhino, Orangutan, Mountain Gorilla and the Giant Panda. Nature activists should find director J.A. Bayona’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” fascinating in its concept. The Dinosaur’s extinction is heralded at some 66 million years ago when a behemoth asteroid wiped them off the face of the planet. Now in the twenty-first century they are making a comeback; more intriguing than 2015’s version of the destruction of Jurassic Park; highly polished filmmaking, a mesmerizing soundtrack, familiar protagonists “Owen Brady” (Chris Pratt) and “Claire Dearing” (Bryce Dallas Howard) are conscripted, for altruistic purposes, by “Benjamin Lockwood” (James Cromwell) to save, and place in a sanctuary, for posterity, these untoward creatures. Pleasant premise, that instantly goes wonderfully, entertainingly awry.

Possibly, because today’s filmic fodder borders on aplastic anemia, I found myself enjoying the “Fallen Kingdom”; an appropriate balance between greedy, capitalistic forces (Rafe Spall, devilishly delicious as duplicitous, “Eli Mills”) and the righteous (Isabella Sermon, is Lockwood’s granddaughter, “Maisie”, inquisitively enchanting); but the dinosaurs, inimitably stunning, ferocious, in all their fury and glory kidnap the viewer’s empathy and imprison it for the film’s entirety.

 

THREE STARS!!!
