Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

In this sci-fi thriller, the fifth in the Jurassic Park franchise, idealistic paleontologists protect and then flee cloned dinosaurs as chaos erupts (a volcano this time) on their remote island wildlife preserve. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are back as the two dinosaur-rights advocates, and Rafe Spall plays a greedy biotech honcho who suckers them into his scheme to auction off the giant carnivores while he secretly engineers a terrifying hybrid monster. The movie's first half feels hackneyed, but director J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage, A Monster Calls) demonstrates a flair for the gothic in the second, which has less pyrotechnics but more suspense. With Ted Levine, Toby Jones, and Jeff Goldblum.
