This installment is supposed to be the EPIC conclusion where two generations unite for the first time. Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill meet up with Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt. Together they battle a bold new world filled with prehistoric Dinosaurs as well as Scientific lab experimental Dinosaurs that have been bred in captivity. These Dinosaurs live and hunt right alongside humans all over the world.
Things get out of control when a Scientist makes a mistake and uses the wrong DNA formula and a flying gigantic looking Grass Hopper / Beetle is born and they create havoc in Texas as well as other places. In the meantime, there are several other stories that unfold and ultimately intersect.
This is 2 hours and 27 minutes of chaos. There is no plot, but there is a very tiny back story that appears half way through the movie. While the past comes together with the present, it’s not clear what the group is trying to accomplish. There is great acting, but that is not enough to save this installment. The cinematography is very good. There is some crazy cool action, but alas I found myself a bit bored. Things heated up toward the end but, by that point I just wanted it to be over.
It’s been four years since the last Jurassic installment, I expected better.
This is a 2 ½ Star Movie!!
