Since I first saw the trailers, I've been wanting to review Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and share it online, not exclusively here but on my blog and other websites. But truth be told, the mixed reaction and often excessively negative ones do make me not want to review it. Its stifling, and when you're being mocked, belittled or condescended for sharing your opinion it takes the fun out of it.

Hey, don't let anyone's opinions affect your interests in sharing your thoughts. If you ended up liking it, then tells us/others why. It's your opinion.

Yeah, today I'm gonna share also my full-spoiler review on my Twitter, and who cares if others spread the hate or don't agree with it. That's my chance, with this review, to show them why FK is actually great to me.

So don't let the others stop you from sharing your thoughts.

I really do need to see the film again. As of this moment I've only seen it once, and I left the film feeling a little underwhelmed. However, after watching some of the clips again, I really do feel like I should give the film another watch on the big screen before I make a final judgement.

As of my third viewing, it’s really settled into feeling like a JP film for me. When I first saw it, it felt so fast. On the second viewing I felt like it was better but the middle felt a bit muddy to me. On the third, I felt more comfortable with everything, I still think the middle drags, but then I don’t any one of the JP sequels is perfect so it isn’t something that ruins the whole film. I think my final rating is a 7/10, I put it above World for the better CGI and animatronics alone, but it’s a slightly above average film with a lot that works for me, and some stuff that doesn’t.

I found it average, 6/10.

What irked me most though, was Goldblum getting all the limelight, and he's in it for less than 30 seconds. In fact, I may be wrong but it certainly felt like they cut some of his trailer lines in the final film. Did he ever say "Life finds a way" in the movie itself? Basically there was this massive cash-in on Jeff Goldblum's presence which amounted to very little at all. Kinda felt bad for Bryce and Pratt, the real stars, not that you would've known that from any of the promotional events etc.

I regret watching the trailers and that Thai trailer or whatever it was, because watching the film was basically experiencing the lead up to all the moments in the trailers. Felt like I had paid for the chaff (though was actually surprised at how cheap the cinema ticket was lol). Some YouTubers had made a convincing argument that they weren't sharing everything, but it turns out they pretty much did.

I did like the dude getting his arm ripped off, but when you think about it, we were supposed to see something similar in the first JP with Arnold, but a tropical storm prevented it from being shot. They also seem to pick and choose Rexy's traits. Sometimes, Rexy is heard, footsteps booming, coming closer for minutes on end, and other times, she is just there, un-noticed and chomping people out of nowhere. Honestly, I think the former works far better for a T-Rex. Coming through the trees in TLW, approaching the jeep in two distinct moments in the first, and even the "it's something bigger" (granted, Spino) if I remember rightly from JP3. So whilst it was a fun dino-chomping moment, that bit with the T-Rex at the end was still silly, and IMO the "crap" way to do T-Rex. That "out of nowhere" is so much better for raptors, faster smaller dinos.

And ofc, still no dilophosaurus. Though it was nice to see a number of other species... but dilo is so poorly underserved by this franchise nowadays...well, ever since JP1 really. And yet is one of the sneakiest, cheekiest (and frankly pretty scary) dinos of them all. The kid at the end "they are alive like me" was also vomit inducing. Give me smart kids, not super-woke kids.

Furthermore, the film took place in literally 2 locations and that's it. Isla Nublar is undeniably an interesting location, though scratch that one off the list. The Manor was IMO a pretty dull, boring location. They could've played up the smaller space claustrophobia aspect but kinda kept it locked in at 10%. Even JP: The Game achieved a higher level of claustrophobia (in my opinion).

Well, overall I don't think it was bad, just underwhelming. It didn't feel like an 'adventure' (you can find a bigger adventure in JP3). In fact, I don't really know what it felt like. The initial espionage thing had a good vibe, but that petered out immediately after that scene. The villain aspect was cliché and you could see it coming a mile off. The rescue stuff was ok but not at all like the dino-capturing of TLW. And the third act is somewhat unclassifiable, "corporate greed goes awry"... it may not be bad, it's just bleak. And I don't think I really enjoy "bleak" Jurassic Park.

I'd imagine it was fun and scary for kids though, so do respect that. That they do have to balance what's more appropriate and fun for kids than older people. And it seems a lot of people do like it, so if its works for others that's also good. For me though, it sits at position number 5, the lowest. I won't be paying money to see the next one, sorry Universal.

And after I saw the film, I bought JW:Evolution. And refunded that 1 hour later. So this time around, it's been pretty disappointing. I think this might be where my JP fandom comes to a close...but like I say, I hope it continues to appeal to younger audiences - they are afterall, who the JP franchise is ultimately aimed at. Still, if I disliked it that much I wouldn't give it a 6...so sure, there is definitely stuff to enjoy in and about Fallen Kingdom. It's taught me an important lesson about "hype" though. Companies ain't making money out of me over "hype" any more, that's for damn sure.

I love both JW films and I'm 24 so they aren't just made for children.

Agreed. I had just finished The Lost World novel before seeing Fallen Kingdom, and the tone and style were as close to Crichton's novels as the first two JP films.
