The new film about the dinosaurs against humans, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits the theatres this Friday. Before the ultimate jury – the audience – give their verdict, the movie has been watched by critics at special screenings. The reviews are out. And there is no consensus. There are a few who are heavily impressed by this new film. While some found it to be worse. Worse than Jurassic Park 3? Hard to believe! But check out the best parts from the reviews below. We know you are going to watch it no matter what!
The movie stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, returning after the prequel. Variety was impressed by his performance and said that he “exudes a lean-and-mean sincerity.” 
Though Pajibo says that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom gives “no heroes worth rooting for”. They add, “No action sequences that will stick with us the way [Stephen] Spielberg’s did. What it offers are lazy re-creations, lazier screenwriting, and sneering disrespect for our love of the original. I did not think I could hate a Jurassic Park movie more than I hated the last. But here we are. Trevorrow found a way.”
AV Club was not impressed by the comedy in this thriller adventure. They wrote, “Spielberg is not often cited for his way with comedy, but he looks like a virtuoso next to the Jurassic World crew, who also assign Justice Smith a clear role as comic relief but fail to give him a single laugh line—or, for that matter, a line that truly qualifies as a proper joke.”
IndieWire wrote, “It’s occasionally elevated by director J.A. Bayona’s penchant for taut human-versus-dino showdowns, but fleeting moments of inspired filmmaking can’t overshadow the broader tendency of this material to sag into stupidity. Campy dialogue and ludicrous plot twists abound: The fate of these resurrected creatures remains uncertain, but the formula for their movies will never go extinct.”

It gets better for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. CinemaBlend says that it is “a high-class summer blockbuster, with some unexpected emotions, a heap of the action that one would expect from such a film, and a dash of surprisingly dark moments that folks have been waiting for since Michael Crichton’s book first hit shelves. This movie needs to be enjoyed in a setting that is as big and as loud as you can get it, simply because it deserves to loom larger-than-life over its audience.”
Vanity Fair also loved the movie and wrote, “Bayona revisits some aesthetics and moods from his lauded 2007 horror film The Orphanage by turning Fallen Kingdom into something of a spooky mansion movie, rainy and atmospheric and full of creeping shadows,” he notes of the movie’s second half. “It’s an unexpected reduction in scale and commitment to specificity, not what we often see in follows-up to smash hits. But these are proportions that Bayona knows how to work in, and from them he crafts something clever and goofy and jumpy. Of course he’s mandated to enlarge the purview of the film — or, really, of the franchise — by the end, but for a while there he gets to play around on his own terms. It’s a surprising delight.”
