When the film Jurassic World was announced in 2014, excitement and misgivings immediately erupted among “veteran” fans . Reasonable. Growing up and watching Michael Crichton's adaptation of the franchise , of course they didn't want the fourth Jurassic film to disappoint them. Fortunately, when it was finally released on June 12, 2015, those worries turned into cracks of a smile.
Indeed, the overall film directed by Colin Trevorrow, is not as perfect as Jurassic Park (1993). But Jurassic World still displays the excitement and tension as when we watched the previous films. Seeing the success of the film, it is automatic once a sequel is produced.
Titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom , the film, now directed by JA Bayona ( The Impossible, A Monster Calls ), is set 3 years after the destruction of the entire Jurassic World theme park . After this event, all the remaining dinosaurs are now in danger of being destroyed by a volcanic eruption around the island of Isla Nublar. Now, it's up to Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) to save the dinosaurs from extinction. Will they succeed?
Overall, every action scene and every scene where Owen cs tries to avoid being chased by dinosaurs (whatever the type of dino is), is really exciting and tense. In fact, you could say, these scenes are much more tense than the first film. So tense, we feel like we are being targeted and chased too.
Of course, this aspect becomes "beautiful music" for both Jyrassic World fans and Jurassic Park fans . Because yes, this aspect is the signature for this franchise . And JA Bayona does a very, very good job.
However, Bayona is not the only one who has contributed. Composer Michael Giacchino, who returned to handle the scoring of this sequel, also had a big (in fact, very big) role in adding to the sense of tension that was felt. The combination of the two looks much more suitable than the Giacchino-Trevorrow combination.
While the action and suspense aspects shine through, unfortunately the same cannot be said for the plot and character development aspects. Even though it still makes sense and is easy to follow, for some reason, we feel normal with the plot that is presented. I don't know, maybe this is because we have often watched movies or played games with similar plots.
But calm down geeks . The problems in the plot department are nothing compared to the problems in the character development department shown in this film. Gokil Geeks . If given a scale of 1-10, you could say the character development in this film is only 2 or 3 out of 10. This is of course very unfortunate.
Especially in this sequel, there is a little girl character named Maisie Lockwood (Isabella Sermon) who has a very imaginative portion and plot background . Indeed, in the third round, his background was revealed. And yes, the disclosure is quite surprising. But because it focuses too much on the main plot, as a result the disclosure feels useless. Supposedly, if you want, this disclosure is expressed only in the third film later than the end i mpact obtained senendang audience is not as expected.
Since Jurassic Park , it is undeniable that Tyrannosaurus Rex aka T-Rex, is the most dangerous and feared dinosaur figure. As a result, it's no wonder this carnivorous dinosaur has become an icon of this franchise . It's not wrong. We, veteran fans , are also waiting for the arrival of this distinctive roaring dino.
But since Jurassic Park 3 (2001), you could say the presence of this dino is nothing more than a gimmick . And this impression is increasingly visible in this Fallen Kingdom . His presence in one or two scenes is "useful" and makes sense. But, as the scene progressed. It really seems that the reason this Gahar Dino is included is for commercial reasons only.
Even though as we know, the figure of "King Dino" in this sequel, is Indo Raptor. So yes, it should be, if you want him to be presented at the end, like in the first film, when T-Rex was only shown to kill Indominus Rex. Oh yes, by the way Indo Raptor. WOW Geeks ! all you can say, Indo Raptor >>>> Indominus Rex. Owen and Claire alone must use their wits to defeat this vicious dino.
In addition to the exciting action scenes, the amazing performances of all the actors are also a factor that successfully covers some of the shortcomings that have been mentioned previously. But of all the actors, no doubt , Chris Pratt, again the most shining. I don't know why, geeks . Pratt does look very natural when he plays Owen. Casual, cool, slengean but still cool at the same time.
His chemistry with his favorite dinosaurs, Blue and Howard, is only getting worse, especially with Blue, which is undeniable that the relationship between the two is very vital to the overall plot of this sequel. Seeing his gokil appearance, it is a pity that it was Alden Ehrenreich who was actually appointed as the young Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story instead of this 38 year old actor. Let's just pray, hopefully in the future he can become a substitute for other iconic Harrison Ford characters, you know who ( cue : fedora hat and whip).
Actually, when we watched The Fallen Kingdom , we felt that this sequel (although it was fun again), didn't need to be produced. Because it is a story and interest, this film does not really need to be made. But because it was scheduled as a trilogy PLUS seeing the aftermath of the ending of this film, we immediately changed our minds alias agreed that Jurassic World , indeed should be made as a trilogy.
As long as it's on a note, after the third film, which is scheduled to be released on June 11, 2021, this story must really be finished. Because if you don't, it will be very expensive. So geeks , for those of you who haven't watched, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is pretty much recommended. Especially if you're a veteran fan , you really must be a geeks .
Oh yeah, don't rush home, geeks . Because this film displays a post-credits scene that is quite interesting and can be used as a little clue as to how the state of the Jurassic universe will be in the upcoming third film.
