    Now that visual effects no longer have the "gee whiz" effect that they once had, movies of this kind have to rely more and more on the story. Case in point. The story here is less about getting the dinosaurs off the now-doomed island (is this the last of the island films?) and more about genetic mutation gone wrong. Again. Starting to see a theme here, kids? Clearly the raptors are the favored dinosaur, and in this case Blue holds her own. The new heavy, a Velociraptor/Indominus Rex hybrid and yes, the first male dinosaur in the series, is quite a beast and not to be taken lightly. He is a prototype created by our good pal, mad scientist Dr Wu. Once it inevidibly gets loose, mayhem ensues. Yay. This is not the strongest of the JP films but it's certainly better than the 2nd one in the series, the only other entry where a dinosaur (briefly) makes it to the mainland. Something that will surely be the main focus in the next entry. I mean, where else can they go?

    A excellent but not fantastic sequel

    Following up Jurassic World was going to be tough, and they mostly pulled it off. The characters reprise their roles albeit in slightly different moods/reversals from where they were last time. My major gripe with this movie is its a bit too heavy handed on the agenda pushing. Leftist/liberal propaganda is rife throughout the movie, from the global warming undertones of dinosaur extinction, to the strong social justice (lesbian?) doctor, the weak beta male assistant, the evil "white man" who calls one of the characters a "nasty woman", taking pot shots at President Trump in news reels, and the main thing...the extreme dumbing down of Bryce Dallas Howards character, she left the last movie a strong capable survivor only to in its sequel be timid and scared? Makes no sense. All that aside its still a fun action movie with some great action set pieces if not with ridiculously obvious foreshadowing at times.

    Dinosaur dogpile, Episode 5

    So, here's the thing. I enjoyed the movie. I thought it admirably kept up the established notion that humanity doesn't respect the power of its own creations, and how that always ends badly for everyone who isn't a long-extinct oversized lizard. That said...while I was watching it for the first time, I had a random thought pop into my head: "Did Steve Spielberg direct this?" ...And I didn't know! I honestly couldn't remember, but I didn't want to stop the movie to find out! Turns out, no he didn't, but the way this movie was directed, there were shots that seemed to come right out of the Spielberg playbook! And I've seen quite a few Spielberg movies in my time! I honestly hope it was an intentional homage to Spielberg, like "Super 8" was. And I really liked that one, too!

    Fallen Kingdom is not Jurassic World, and metacrtic and Rotten Tomatoes confirms this. I belong in the group that enjoyed this movie. It is a well made film with its moment; however, what I like about this movie is that is break the formula. Yes the dinosaurs are still running round and eating the humans, but there is a character in this movie that moves the story forward. For people who have seen this movie, they might know who I am referring to. For people who haven't see the film, I do not want to reveal too much. Once the reveal was made, I was glad the movie went in that direction. I also enjoyed the ending because it was time the franchise broke away from the island formula. Overall, if I can sumamrize this movie, it is a set up for the next film in the franchise. As for the blu-ray, I bought the 4k company and it is one lovely looking film.

    A Fun Jurassic Park Movie

    Hey, it's Jurassic Park! It's an entertaining movie bringing back pretty much everyone (that didn't die) from the first Jurassic World of 2015. It's fun, entertaining, freaky at times and funny! Chris Pratt, what can I say. He's hilarious in this movie... sometimes corny, but most of the time you can tell he's just having fun. This movie was a fun summer flick! It was also cool to see Jeff Goldblum make an appearance! It wasn't directed by the same guy who directed the first Jurassic World (Colin Trevorrow), but instead, he moved to the writers seat and let J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage & A Monster Calls) direct. Not bad. It seems Mr. Bayona knows a few things about monsters and creepiness in his movies and you can see that in this movie. It's a fun movie to watch when friends are over and you're just ready to have some fun.

    Great Special Effects; Not so great storyline

    As we have come to expect from this franchise, the special effects are outstanding. The volcanic explosion is as impressive as any effect in any movie; maybe more so. My only qualm is that the entire story seems designed as a set-up for the next sequel in the series. I have never accepted the premise that reptiles, no matter how intelligent we're told they were (are), can be trained to obey human prompts whether by a clicker or hand gestures and voice commands. I know this works for zoo keepers but a 200 million year old carnivorous predator? Please. Then there is the last scene which I won't disclose for those who haven't seen it. This is a ludicrous attempt to set the table for the next movie in the series. If you buy this, buy it for the special effects and the acting (which is quite good) but don't expect a great storyline.

    This is a solid piece of entertaining fiction. It's not nearly as good as the first Jurassic World was when it was launched, but it is an enjoyable ride throughout. I think it was hurt a bit by making the humans more central to the story than the actual dinosaurs were. The dinosaurs were more like background plot devices in this movie than previous movies. Gorgeous visuals in 4K/HDR, but the most beautiful scenes are on the island in the beginning, and unfortunately they quickly migrate away from there. I honestly wish they would have had more island scenes instead of dark mansion scenes as the tropical island setting was practically a character in its own right throughout the Jurassic Park/World movies. That being said, this movie sets the series up for some interesting things in the future should they continue.

    For all the bad reviews, of all the people I talked to that saw the latest entry in the Jurassic franchise only one didn't like it. That was my son. Fallen Kingdom wastes no time jumping into the action, having the audience more concerned for the fictional CGI animals than the humans. Chris Pratt does what he does and Bryce Howard brings a solid performance. Secondary and tertiary characters are questionable, but the actors' portrayals are acceptable. Regardless of your feelings about the movie itself (including the moving scene showing the final bow of the Braciosaur that started it all), the 4k UHD is the shining star. Every detail, both visual and audio blend to envelop the viewer in the experience. The same extras are featured on the Blu-ray, so the 4k is all about the ultimate movie experience.

    A Fun Popcorn Movie

    While this film does not reach the heights of the original Jurassic Park and I personally found the first Jurassic World to be overall superior, I still think that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a fun time in the "Popcorn Movie" type of way. The strongest part is J.A. Bayona's directing in this film. He has a great eye for framing shots and uses beautiful cinematography. The actors are all fun to watch and there are some great set pieces and visual effects. I just think the script could have been stronger in the second half of the film and the characters could have been more engaging. Overall, though, I liked this film and would recommend the 4K to anyone who did. I just wish the artwork they went with for the Steelbook was better and more inspired.

    I wasn't even sure I was going to get this movie on disc at first, it was kind of a disappointment to me when I saw it in the theater. But I love the Jurassic Park franchise, and turns out I can't resist a Steelbook when its on sale. And I thought that maybe this would also get better with multiple viewings. It was better the second time around, it's not going to become a favorite anytime soon, but it's enjoyable enough. I think a lot of the improvement came from the 4K version, it is an amazing 4K disc, the black levels were striking to me and my favorite technical aspect of this disc. Overall if you enjoyed the movie I do recommend the 4K version as a great technical viewing experience, and the Steelbook looks a little bit better in person, it does to me anyway.

    Like all Jurassic Park movies, the dinosaurs are the center of the storyline. However, unlike the others, this flick almost broke my heart. I understand that dinosaurs were extinct, but for man to make the decision to let them die an extremely painful death was disheartening to say the least. How like man to play God by creating them and then letting them be destroyed as well. But, as with most Scifi flicks, some came to their rescue. There were so many emotional ups and downs in this movies, I got tired of getting tears in my eyes. In the end though, a few survived- with Blue leading the way. Needless to say, there are plenty of ways that Jurassic Park can continue the story. Can't wait till the next one.

    As with many second effort films, this one is not as good as the first in the rebirth of this series. But it is still worthy my hard earned money. I think the ending is rather lame. There. I said it. L A M E, lame. What is it Deadpool says in DP2? "That's just lazy writing". The special effects are up to the task and the actors and actresses (see...I know the women are really called ACTRESSES!) are too. I so enjoyed the first film in this reboot that I bought this one too and I really don't have an regrets. It's good. Not great. Good. And nothing is wrong with good. I recommend it for a nice rainy day (or evening) filled with thunder and lighting and a good hard shower. Trust me...I know what I'm doin' when I'm reviewin'.

    Very good 3D and a good story

    Let me start off by saying that any review of a Jurrasic Park/World movie that complains that it's another movie with dinosaurs chasing people has no business reviewing the movie. That is what the movies are about, if you are not onboard for that then move along. There are fair criticisms that can be made about character and plot points but don't dismiss the movie based on the premise of the franchise! My wife and I both enjoyed this movie a lot, we found the story to be engaging and it went in a different direction than the previous films. If you liked the first Jurrasic World then I think you will enjoy this one too. The 3D is very good as well, a couple of pop-out but the depth of the images is what impressed me.

    The movie comes in a very nice metal tin which is a nice way to protect and also display the movies. I also like the ability to get the digital copy as well that I can stream from either my phone or various XBOX/PS4/Google Chrome/Fire TV to watch whenever I want to without having to get the discs out. The picture quality and surround are very nice as I expected but the movie just didn't grab me the way the first one did. Special effects were just as good as the first one making the animals appear as realistic as CG Dinosaurs can be. Overall I am happy with the purchase just wish the move had sucked me in as much as the first one. Still a great addition to my entire JP collection.

    I've been enjoying the Jurassic Park/World movies in theaters since the first film debuted in 1993. A lot of crazy things have happened during the course of these five films, but the one thing that hasn't is the dinosaurs causing havoc because of the hubris of man. This newest film does something all of the others haven't though---bringing the iconic creatures to the mainland! In addition to the high quality presentation of the film itself, this blu-ray set comes complete with plenty of extras. If you've enjoyed any of the Jurassic films like I have thus far, I'm certain you'll enjoy this one too. 4 stars out of 5.

    2nd Movie In Series Sets the Stage for a 3rd Movie

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a close 2nd to Jurassic World. If you have enjoyed the Jurassic Park movies and the Jurassic World movie, you enjoy this feature film. Lots of dinosaur action and revenge on the humans that are mean to the more helpless dinosaurs. It is gets a little silly at times, but for the most part it maintains its integrity of dinosaurs and their destructive nature on the Earth. It is definitely worth a watch to see, in this movie, how the dinosaurs interact with their environment and humans.

    If you are a fan of the Jurassic Park and World movies, then you will have to pick up a copy to go with the rest. Good movie, cool story line and awesome dinosaur effects. I mean I can’t believe how real the dinosaurs look. On a 4K player and tv along with just the blu ray version man it rocks! I bet the 4K disc is better but honestly you can’t go wrong with either 4K or blu ray. I can’t wait to see Jurassic Wolrd 3 coming to America j/k I doubt they will name it that. Awesome movie with detailed picture and sound quality!

    When I first heard about the movie everyone kept saying it wasn't very good which left me very unsure whether or not to buy it. However, I figured after the whole deadpool 2 nightmare people are generally not always a reliable source to base decisions on. So after I bought it and finally saw it for myself I have to say it was a pretty good movie. Don't get me wrong, some parts they pushed the politics a little much and two or three scenes needed a bit better writing and acting, but all in all I'd easily give it a 4 out 5.

    This is not a great movie, but I thought it was much better than the last offering. The story is better, and this one gives us more in the way of characters to care about. The special effects were excellent. So, if you enjoy the franchise, seeing the dinosaurs and all, then you won’t be disappointed I don’t think. The dinosaurs also eat some people in this one so parents might want to take that into account in letting kids watch. Four stars: three for the basic movie, plus one more for the special effects.

    First of all, kudos to Universal for releasing a 3d version of the movie in the U.S. and to Best Buy for stocking it. Despite what the studios think there are still a lot of us who enjoy 3d movies in the home. It's a pain ordering these movies from overseas. While the story line is a bit weak the action sequences and special effects were very life like. It continues to amaze me the reality of some of the special effects. If you can get past the somewhat weak story line I think most Jurassic fans will enjoy this movie.
