12 Simple Fixes That Would Have Made Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Awesome

12. A Greater Emphasis On Horror

Easily the most interesting aspect of Fallen Kingdom is its brief divergences into horror, particularly during the movie's third act on the Lockwood estate.

When the Indoraptor stalks the estate's grounds, particularly while pursuing Maisie (Isabella Sermon), the film's tone shifts in a distinct way, to the point that the movie earns comparisons to the classic survival horror video game Dino Crisis.

It's a shame the movie didn't lean into this more, honestly, with most of the film instead relying on the usual, goofy B-movie shenanigans that the series has been dining out on for all of its sequels.

Though the PG-13 rating will always restrict the horrific aspects, it doesn't mean the movie couldn't have focused more on the scares and suspense factor.
