11. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
from JR Bayona, director of 2016’s moving and underrated A Monster Calls,
Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom is a pretty bizarre case of under-utilised
Yes, okay, so there are problems with Safety Not Guaranteed helmer Colin Trevorrow’s preceding Jurassic World, but the sequel opening on a thinly veiled retread of The Lost World’s plot is an inexplicable decision, as is the trollish ending of this effort.
As dinosaurs embed themselves across America in a surreal sequence, we’re informed that "we can live in harmony" by Jeff Goldblum’s brief cameo, a message which is a direct contradiction of everything that the franchise stood for previously.
If that’s the case why would there have been any tension in the preceding films?!
