Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom: Movie Review!
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Movie Review
As someone that grew up a Jurassic Park fan, I was definitely excited to see this one.
Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom is the second installment to the Jurassic World franchise. It stars Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help) and of course the dinosaurs!
RUNNING TIME: 2 hours 8 minutes
When the movie first starts, it picks up 3 years after the theme park “Jurassic World” was destroyed by uncaged dinosaurs. I felt the Fallen Kingdom had a slow start but did a decent job filling in the viewers of what happened in the previous film. Fallen Kingdom also prepares it’s viewers with some foreshadowing of the events to come.
Once you make it past the backstory and get caught up with the characters, you find yourself torn between wanting to let nature take its course or venturing out with philanthropists to save the dinosaurs. All the while trying to flee from an island full of carnivorous, gigantic beasts from an active volcano.

Outside of a few political jabs and heart string pulling moments, this film was well written, funny and visually enticing!
Overall this was a much “different” version of previous Jurassic Parks /World. There seemed to be more emotion present between the lead characters and the animals as opposed the films of the past.
I do recommend if you have younger children, under the age of 8, it might be a little intense. Some scenes were a tad frightening for my 11, 10, and 7-year-old.
I would rate Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom a solid 7 out of 10. Definitely a great movie to see with older kiddos!
