    So, if JW 3 follows the lore of the mobile game, it should be about protecting dinosaurs. This will make for a shit movie that can easily be used to push every agenda in Hollywoods book.

    In defense of military dinosaurs. Ya, this movie was shit. I actually watched it to wash the bad taste of Rise of Skywalker out of my mouth. Like trying to put out a fire with gasoline. Anyway, true JP fans will remember Chaos Effect, a toy line that was basically about weaponizing Dinosaurs. The results ranged from cool to cartoonish, and the toy line introduced cybernetics into the lore of JP. It is important to remember that the Dinosaurs are not, in fact, dinosaurs. They are what Crichton referred to as "aberrant forms." In other words, they are genetic horrors created through the use of cloning technology that was based on severely degraded strands of DNA. The raptors we see in JP are utahraptors. The clone versions, however, lack the feathers of true velociraptors and from the looks of things have a lot of T-Rex DNA. Given the fact that JP dinosaurs have tear ducts one must wonder what ELSE Hammond used to "fill in the gaps", so to speak. Considering this, it is much easier to think of the Dinosaurs at auction as seeds from which could be created almost anything, from an army of cybernetically enhanced Raptor-Men to docile pygmy Rexes that could be fed at petting zoos.

    I think this film works well, there is no mucking about and the pace kept me intrigued. Character development of the leads was appropriate for the pace, when they kissed it was convincing enough. Ted Levine was sufficiently menacing, however as the plot shows, he was not the greatest threat also Rafe Spall did a terrific job in his role as a weasely psychopath.
    I believe this film although not perfect, has the right pace and tone to set up the final film.
    This film could be considered filler, or simply a build up like in an orchestral piece of music, each passage playing its part to Form the whole.
    If the final film is epic and amazing with further lead character development, this trilogy will Form a solid unit I believe.

    I thought the ending was epic and something that was being built towards since the beginning. And Malcolm is old. He’s had his share of the action. Even though he’s only in a few scenes, he’s kind of like the narrator of the whole thing. The island portion is brief, but still a blast. And I think the idea for dinosaurs being used for the military is presented a lot better here than in the previous film because this time they design something specifically for it. Those are my thoughts.

      It had some good CGI and animatronics, but that can't compensate for a bad screenplay and characters.

    The idea of saving dinosaurs over humanity is more disappointing than the movie itself.

    Hey Chris! Love your reviews! Just one thing though, I saw your Jurassic World review right before this one and..it didn't seem like you were as disappointed with that film as you say you were in this review. You seemed quite excited in fact! And while you did give that one a B, you said you had a great time with it in your review. Just wondering, did your thoughts change on the first one after you gave it some more time and thought?

    Worst movie of 2018. They didn’t think about this at all, it’s literally all recycled crap that we’ve already seen in previous movies

    Using the Jeff Goldblum quote from Jurassic Park at the end of your video was perfection, cherry on top with this video lol. I agree with everything you said, Chris!

  • Onyxiate

    I liked Jurassic World, and all of the other Jurassic Park films are phenomenal at best and good at worst, and so I had high hopes for this movie.
    Needless to say that I wasn’t happy since this movie is my least favourite of all time.

    Chris Pratt is NOT funny in JW let's get that straight...he should star in mission impossible rather that's where he belongs... in a realist world the dinosaurs would of probably eaten him by now but of cause him too cool for that

    This is an editing MASTERPIECE!
    Ok. After watching it in the cinema, I didn’t quite like it.. But after watching it again, I realized that it’s almost an editing masterpiece.. Take a look at how each scene is edited. Like the scene where they roll into the water in that ball. It’s ONE take, from when they begin to sink. Triceratops drowning, fireballs hitting the glass, Owen tries to help, then swim away, then comes back again, Claire and Franklin holding their breaths. It all one long take, and it’s absolutely flawlessly filmed..
    When they use the chair to get to the ladder, and the ladder falls down right after Frankling thought he was safe. Spielberg tension right there.
    When Frankling gets blown away by the gas station explosion, Own tells Claire to start the truck, while he helps Frankling, and then they run for the truck. I mean, the way these shots are flawlessly edited together, is really really good. Especially compared with todays super confusing editing styles.
    Just the smooth transition of them landing on the beach after the ball scene, and a helicopter passing them with a dinosaur hanging from it, flying towards the ship...
    It kind of blows my mind, that no one is talking about this. Each shot is framed to perfection!
    Watch it again, and see how everything is flawlessly edited and shot..

    Worst movie in the entire franchise. Even worse than Jurassic Park 3.

  • Saya X
    Saya X 3 months ago

    This movie wasn’t good. It felt really generic by trying to push the whole “good pet raptor will save us” thing. Then they try to top it off with the iconic trex roar at the end multiple times. By this time, the trex is basically just a standby character. The villains in this movie were so blah. The hybrid thing is going in the way of the Predator franchise, which should just die by now. This movie wasn’t even as good as the previous one, at least that one had an epic fight in the end. Overall I give this movie 5/10 and only for the graphics.

    • Raymond Watt

    His review of the first Jurassic World made it seem he had fun. Hearing what he said about it here was kinda jarring.

    As a fan of the Jurassic films here's my rankings from 👍to👎.
    1. Jurassic Park: At 5 years old my grandfather had me watch to movie. Boooy I wasn't the same, this film and more is where my fascination of Dinosaurs was born about 19 years ago, heck would even collect dinosaur toys, videos, and others. It's even (including Lost World) is my 2nd favorite movie of all time.
    2. Lost World Jurassic Park: Right after, we would rent these movies on VHS at the Video Store. Watching the next movie, more dinos, parent Trex's and their baby, reasonable story, San Diego terror...👍👍.
    3. Jurassic World: Being open minded, I really enjoyed this, however the only thing that really put this movie in #3 was the scenes with the Dinos. Original Trex vs. Irex true highlight. (Good characters but, missed the old characters)
    4. Jurassic Park 3: At 6 years old I loved this movie, Spinosaurs became my favorite carnivore. Now, it this film to me is guilty pleasure, it's funny, blunt, and dumb but make sense😂. Even some parts me want put this above JW for reasons, but I can't. Oh yeah Spino vs. Trex highlight for me, but Irex vs Trex did it better.
    5. Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom: As big fan of Dinosaurs and the Jurassic films, I wanted to like this movie😳. The first parts especially the volcano was the best part that's pretty much it...😕

      I think he was Phantom Menaced by that movie. It also came out in 2015 when Chris was still young and in his fanboy mode. Now he has matured a lot since then and reviews things ally more seriously.

  • Ebolarnator
    Ebolarnator 5 months ago

    That bit from Jurassic Park at the end sums up this movie perfectly!

  • Ebolarnator
    Ebolarnator 5 months ago

    See, the thing is, a lot of these movie sagas/franchises, start as a one-off movie, based on a novel or book. When a novel or book gets a movie adaptation, that tends to suggest that the book was freaking amazing, like Jurassic Park, The Lost World, Jaws... All three happen to be directed by one of Hollywood's best director, ever: Steven Spielberg. You mix those two elements, and you get perfection! But then studios are like "well let's cash in on this and make sequels!" but they don't understand the formula needed to make even a decent sequel.

    I, personally, like Jurassic Park 1-3 and Jurassic World. 3 is a bit iffy, but I still enjoy it. Jurassic World: Fallen Franchise though, I hated.

    Now, I'm guessing you have seen Jurassic World a few more times since your first review and your mind has changed slightly.

    The only thing that was amazing about this movie is the surround sound mix. For real... even just streaming off Hulu. If you have a decent home theater do yourself a favor and watch this again and pay attention to the surround sound. It’s a delight.
