Elements of the third film in the Jurassic World series are a significant improvement on its predecessors, other aspects lame and derivative.
Several years after the destruction of Isla Nubar and the dinosaur haven, Owen Grady (Chris Pratt – The Kid, The Tomorrow War) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard – The Help, Rocketman) are raising the genetically modified Maisie Lockwood (Isabella Sermon – Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) off grid. But as a person of interest to the Biosyn multinational based in Switzerland, Maisie is kidnapped. The adults go in search, a move that coincides with a group of scientists led by paleobotanist Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern – Wild, Marriage Story) looking to expose Biosyn for their dodgy genetic practices.
It all degenerates into a somewhat tacky and cluttered yarn after an engaging opening thirty minutes or so with more than a nod to many, many other adventure features (director Colin Trevorrow – Jurassic World, Reality Show). Ultimately, it’s a disappointing end for the trilogy.
