Four years after Isla Nublar was destructed, dinosaurs now live (and hunt) alongside human beings across the world. This balance will reshape the future and will determine whether humans can remain the apex predators alongside these creatures who now share the planet – within this new and finale film in the Jurassic World Franchise.
The film starts with Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas-Howard) living under the radar with Maisie, who they rescued from JW: Fallen Kingdom, but as she is now a teenager she is starting to rebel, as a 14-year-old usually would, and feeling like a prisoner, she explores out of the area and when she makes her way back she discovers Blue who seems to be nesting nearby with an offspring.
Some adult men who work to kidnap both Maisie and Blue’s offspring, plan their time well before doing so, which leads to Owen and Claire unexpectedly set out on a mission to find Maisie and bring back Blues baby offspring successfully.
A short while later, they both discover it was Lewis Dodgson (Campbell Scott) who orders the abduction, who is also the owner of Biosyn, where he is also finding it difficult to keep it private that he is the one who has released some unusual locusts into crop areas, with the plan for the world to rely on his crops the locusts have not touched. This does not go to his plan, as Ellie Satler (Laura Dern) is on his tail where she investigates and strongly suspects he is the one who created them in the first place.
With the help of her former partners; Alan Grant (Sam Neil) and Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), they (Ellie and Alan) both head to Biosyn to reunite with Ian Malcolm, where they plan to prove Lewis Dodgson has been purposely releasing these deadly locusts for the benefit of himself and his business. This become complicated when they bump into Maisie who is trying to find Blue’s child – after they bonded and she called it Beta. They all try to escape but are stopped by Dodgson himself, and he works to destroy the evidence he created in the process.
Overall, this is a great, great, finale to the film franchise. I have noticed a lot of reviews have been slating this film but honestly, I don’t know why, as this was such a great ending to the Jurassic World films, and to have the old cast from Jurassic Park in this last film is truly a special one to finish with.
I watched this film on Saturday 11th June, in Cineworld Plymouth UK, and in a 4DX 3D screening – 4DX = is a multi-sensory cinematic experience, so I experienced wind, rain, snow, movement, even during the intense scenes I felt like I had been part of the actual film. It is definitely one I will highly recommend watching, and to not take notice of the bad reviews as the film blows the reviews out of the water. The scenes, the picture, the action, everything involved truly amazed me – oh and seeing Chris Pratt in 4DX 3D is also a plus!!!
I really did enjoy this, and when I have some time in the next few weeks, I most likely will go and watch it again, in 4DX 3D – if that is still an option for me at Cineworld. I also managed to grab some posters too which made my day. Overall, a great film, I thoroughly enjoyed it and definitely worth the wait.
I rate this film 5 STARS
