Jurassic World: Forbidden Kingdom
Much better than some of the others in the franchise

I enjoyed watching "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom". It is a great follow up to the previous movie and nice to see some of my favorite characters back on screen. The movie stays true to the franchise and is full of adventure and thrills. There is never a dull moment in the movie as something exciting keeps taking place and you find yourself in the edge of your seat. The CGI and effects are amazing as always and they feel more refined and real. There are also some heartwarming moments where I actually felt more empathetic towards the dinosaurs. Another good thing about Fallen Kingdom is you don't have to watch the previous installments to figure out what's happening. Even a newbie to the franchise can pick up on what happening and would want to watch the previous movies.

The characters are a mixed bag. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are charming on screen as always, but there is hardly any character development between them. Daniella Pineda and Justice Smith are good supporting characters that provide comic relief. Isabella Sermon is adorable in her debut role as Maisie Lockwood and has done a terrific job. The remaining actors who played the villains are amicable but are easily forgettable, since they are very clich├ęd and don't bring anything new to the screen. In fact, Toby Jones seems to be look bored in his scenes, and Ted Levine's character was just annoying. The movie would have been better if the villains were more complex and interesting.

Apart from the characters, the only reason I am not giving it a full star rating is because it was predictable. Since this is the fifth installment, we can expect that is going to happen in the next scene. While this is fun, I would have loved it the thrills deviated from what we are used to seeing. Having said that, "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" is a full-on family entertainer that is definitely worth watching in the cinemas. It is in no way close to the original 1993 movie, but it is much better than the others in the franchise.
