Jurassic World: Dominion, while destined to be one of the summer’s block busters, falters on a weak plot and transparent story line. Thus, unfortunately, the movie’s quality does not match up to the box office.
My full review is live at The Beacon.
While the movie is an engaging dinosaur romp, a transparent plot, heavy-handed eco-apocalyptic theme, and conventional character’s keep the movie from making it to an “A” list category. True enough, the movie does a nice job of bringing back many of the character from the earlier movies, the thin plot makes it difficult to fully develop the characters.

Unlike the 2018 movie Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (see my movie review here), and even the first movie in the trilogy, Jurassic World: Dominion‘s filmmakers threw away any pretense of nuance or layering. Instead, they crafted a heavy-handed, apocalyptic tale of man-made environmental disaster, all in the pursuit of profit and world domination.
The 2022 movie, which is otherwise a satisfying dinosaur romp, suffers as a result.
The producers have definitely invested in the ditial imagery and production values. And the action sequences are rivetting. Just don’t expect much else.
