(2018) (Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action/Thriller: A small group of people must contend with efforts by others to sell and weaponize dinosaurs that have been evacuated off a volcanic island.
- It's been several years since the disastrous events at Jurassic World left scores dead and the dinosaur theme park in ruins. While dinosaurs continue to roam the otherwise deserted Isla Nublar, their existence is threatened by the island's erupting volcano, all of which could result in the second extinction event their kind has faced.
Hoping to prevent that from happening is Claire Dearing (BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD) the theme park's former operations manager who now spearheads a small movement -- that also includes, among others, dino veterinarian Zia Rodriguez (DANIELLA PINEDA) and systems operator Franklin Webb (JUSTICE SMITH) -- to save them.
Thus, she's pleased when she's contacted by Eli Mills (RAFE SPALL) who runs a foundation created by Benjamin Lockwood (JAMES CROMWELL), a wealthy but old and physically ailing entrepreneur who lives in a massive estate with his young granddaughter, Maisie (ISABELLA SERMON). He previously worked closely with Jurassic Park's founder before a falling out between them, and is desirous of relocating the dinosaurs from the doomed island to a sanctuary one, and Mills wants to get his hands on as many species as possible, including a particularly intelligent raptor named Blue.
Accordingly, he'd like Claire to convince that raptor's former trainer, Owen Grady (CHRIS PRATT), to help capture the dinosaur, and despite some initial reluctance, he signs on and soon he, Claire, Zia, and Franklin set off for the faraway island.
There, they're greeted by expedition facilitator Ken Wheatley (TED LEVINE) and his armed contingent. But it soon becomes all-too-apparent that things aren't as initially stated and it's eventually revealed that Mills is in cahoots with Mr. Eversol (TOBY JONES) who intends to auction off the dinosaur to wealthy but unsavory bidders, while genetic scientist Dr. Henry Wu (BD WONG) is continuing his work creating modified dinosaurs spliced together from others.
From that point on, Owen and Claire try to rescue the dinosaurs from all of that, all while they, Zia, Franklin, and Maisie must contend with Wu's latest creation, a modified raptor that's bigger, faster and stronger than even Blue, as well as other dinosaurs now housed in Lockwood's estate.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're into dinosaurs, are fans of the previous "Jurassic Park/World" movies, or are fans of anyone in the cast they probably will.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For intense sequences of science-fiction violence and peril.
