Set four years after the events of the last movie, the latest film in the franchise sees Owen Grady and Claire Dearing go on a mission to rescue their adopted daughter Maisie, a girl who holds the key to unravelling the mystery behind using the dinosaurs' genome for groundbreaking medical research.
Along the way, the couple must survive killer henchmen and the expected rampaging prehistoric creatures whose very existence continues to threaten the entire human race.
Colin Trevorrow's latest entry into the blockbuster franchise is arguably his best; the action and dinosaurs make for spectacular sequences and the return of the original cast members is the icing on the cake.
As a fan who revers the first two films by Steven Spielberg, I have never expected Trevorrow to be able to capture that first magic and wonder and that has helped me accept the latter's flawed but commendable interpretations.
In Dominion, Chris Pratt returns as dino handler/trainer Owen Grady, the protagonist who finds himself at the forefront of a fight against a bioengineering corporation called Biosyn after his foster daughter is kidnapped.
Owen and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) fight their way to Biosyn's facility in the attempt to rescue their daughter as the world seems to collapse around them following the dinosaurs doing what they do best.
Jurassic World Dominion is first of all an action sci-fi so those expecting something more than the predictable would be sorely disappointed.
There isn't much to expect in terms of acting but that is pretty decent. The script has several plotholes and the science mumble-jumble comes across as annoying, but all that is forgiven when the viewer is treated to some over-the-top action scenes.
The CGI or animatronics (it's possible both were used, I don't know) are pretty convincing. I particularly enjoyed a scene where one of the creatures stalk Owen and another person by navigating the freezing waters beneath some thin ice.
The return of Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum had the expected nostalgic effect. A scene where they meet Owen, Claire, and their daughter gave me goosebumps as it obviously symbolised the convergence of the old and the new.
The one thing that seems to be an issue with these kinds of flicks is how all the people you root for always find a way to make it out alive despite the countless threats they face while the big bad dude always gets his comeuppance.
Die-hard fans of the Jurassic World films and those who love big-budget action movies or dinosaurs will also get a kick out of it as I did.
While Jurassic World Dominion was fun for me, I sincerely hope this is where the popular franchise ends as I have a feeling the producers wouldn't want to make fans get tired of it by churning out more movies.
