Jurassic World: The Dominion - The Review

Jurassic World

Jurassic World: Il Dominio third chapter of the trilogy dedicated to the relaunch of the historic dinosaur park born in the novel Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton and brought to the cinema by Steven Spielberg, who since 1993 asks us the fateful question whether men and giant reptiles can live together .

To flank the protagonists Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt, Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum return to reprise the beloved roles that have consecrated them in the very distant first chapter of the saga, nostalgia operation in progress?


Jurassic World: The Dominion after the Lost Kingdom

Meanwhile, Doctor Ellie Satter realizes some changes in the flora and fauna that put her on alert and to investigate a multinational that seems to be behind it all, she asks for the help of her ex-partner and colleague Alan Grant.

In Jurassic World: The Dominion the protagonists will visit different places on the globe, passing through different climates and settings: the United States, Malta, Italy will be the background for chases and searches to discover a solution to the peaceful coexistence between men and these visitors returning from a 65 million year journey

The Cast, not just dinosaurs

The very rich cast of Jurassic World: The domain. In addition to Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, true protagonists of the new trilogy and perfectly at ease in their characters, a recognition that goes more to the talented Howard who once again confirms herself as a convincing actress as well as a very good director (as lovers well know of The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett) it should also be noted that his character is the one who most of all has seen an evolution in the narrative arc of the three chapters, as opposed to his counterpart played by Chris Pratt who limited himself to always do the same things throughout the trilogy, so much so that his typical gesture of pointing the palm towards the dinosaurs is a well-established meme, his are the best action scenes of the film, such as those set in Malta

In addition to them there are other returns from the two previous chapters, such as that of Omar Sy and BD Wong, and the young Isabella Sermon who returns to play a key character in the film Maisie Lockwood. But it is useless to pretend that the most awaited return is not that of the protagonists of the first Jurassic Park: Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum who play the "torn" role of Doctors Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler and the magnificent Ian Malcom who also in this case fills and dominates the scene. A noteworthy new entry to the cast is that of DeWanda Wise who plays Kayla Watts, a smuggler pilot with a military past but with a heart of gold. It is impossible not to think of a female Han Solo given the premises.

The music as in the previous films is by Michael Giacchino, while the master Steven Spielberg is always watching everything from behind the scenes

Dinosaurs, memories and fanservice

Could humans and dinosaurs coexist on the same planet? Jurassic World: The Dominion tries to answer this question, introducing us in the first minutes of projection into what the world after 4 years from the arrival of the great animals in civilization, and immediately making it clear that in front of a situation that could be decisive for the future of the two species, the greed and selfishness of the human being manage to dominate every other possible action. An ecological film? apparently yes, it is a pity that it is only a pretext to return to a series of situations already seen that fail to excite the lovers of this brand. Colin Trevorrow, who returns to directing after directing the first chapter of the Jurassic World trilogy, offers us a very action film with some hints to the spy-story genre inside but without being able to fully convince. Jurassic World: The Dominion is weak in history which is limited to a pretext to bring back the old historical protagonists together with the new generation, continuously exploiting the fan-service and the nostalgia effect: even some situations are the same as the old chapters, possible that in every park there is a need to restart the generator, which is always in a dungeon full of dinosaurs? Or that there should always be a bigger dinosaur?

The plot dedicated to the historical cast is very little credible, with our beloved researchers who face a mega corporation with the same approach as a cinepanettone that mixes the spy-story with comedy and obviously not surprising, if we add an antagonist who looks like a speck created by the union between Steve Jobs and Hank Scorpio, you can get the full picture of the situation. Another negative note are the frequent scare-jumps that fill the film but which after a while become very predictable and totally lose their meaning The action scenes always manage to keep the viewer's attention high, but you need something more to have a good product , but beware, Jurassic World: The Domination is not a movie to forget, but it is certainly a movie that will not be remembered because it does not add anything new to what we have seen so far

A real shame especially when you think back to the 6-minute prologue distributed on the net months before the release, which foreshadowed a more urban development of the action, something practically barely mentioned in the film. For the rest after the vision of Jurassic World - The domain remains in our mouth the bitterness for so much wasted potential that is not sweetened by the enormous amount of fanservice and memorabilia served throughout the film, thanks to the lack of courage shown by the director who reaches the sufficiency only thanks to the story of Jurassic Park that precedes it and the fact of not having managed to bore the viewer despite the 146 minutes of duration, but be careful that not boring does not mean satisfying.
