'Jurassic World Dominion' Review: Colin Trevorrow's Conclusion To Dino Franchise Is Commendable

'Jurassic World Dominion' Review: Colin Trevorrow's Conclusi

Though it still doesn't measure up to any of Steven Spielberg's first two films in the franchise, the last entry does make a statement when it comes to dino action and spectacle.

I assume director Colin Trevorrow didn't set out to outperform Spielberg when he was chosen to make the next movies in the series as it would have been an effort in futility. This, more than anything else, helped me make something of his own.

Billed as the conclusion in the franchise, Jurassic World Dominion features Chris Pratt's Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire Dearing return to rescue a girl who holds the key to unravelling the mystery behind the creation of the prehistoric creatures.

While our heroes fight off henchmen and dinosaurs to get to their adopted daughter, a corrupt bioengineering corporation known as Bisoyn hides a secret that the original team of scientists (Ellie Sattler, Alan Grant, and Ian Malcolm) must expose before humans become extinct.

This is first of all an action sci-fi flick so fans who are familiar with the genre know that comes with the expected badly-written dialogue, plotholes, cheesy one-liners, and predictable story.

While all of the above are present in Dominion, it still manages to inspire awe with over-the-top action sequences and dinosaur rendering.

There isn't much to expect when it comes to the action but even that isn't bad; Pratt as the protagonist Owen Grady has obviously matured since the last time we saw him and the actor's screen charisma is undeniable.

The CGI/animatronics used once again to bring the creatures to life is impressive and the interaction between them and humans even more so.

There is little time for any reasonable talk as the action barely stops when it gets into full gear but I guess that's a good thing (I enjoyed every bit of it).

One major thing the film suffers from is its one-dimensional villain whose motivations don't go beyond what you'd expect from a bad guy who just wants to have it all.

Another thing is all the good guys always manage to make it out alive despite facing countless threats while the bad ones get their comeuppance.

The return of the original trio (Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum) gave me a few nostalgic moments and their meeting with Owen, Claire and Maisie obviously symbolised the convergence of different generations.

There isn't much to say beyond this; Jurassic World Dominion is arguably Trevorrow's best and will give die-hard fans of the franchise an entertaining experience as long as they turn off their more critical sides to enjoy it.

Rating: 6.7/10.
