Trivia

The additional material in the Dinosaur Protection Group page revealed that all of the dinosaurs on Isla Sorna have died out, and the ones that survived were transported to Isla Nublar between movies. Why would that preclude using the island, even if only temporarily? And if the above is true, the fact that there are previous dinosaur transport protocols available makes the decision not to move them there even worse. The "sanctuary island" plan that Lockwood thought he was financing wasn't just to move the dinosaurs, it was to move them somewhere nobody would find them until the legal question of their status as worthy of preservation could be settled, and saving them would no longer be considered a crime. Mills does mention Isla Sorna once when he takes Claire to Lockwood's private "museum" and tells her the manor was the place where Hammond and Lockwood began their de-extinction experiments, "before Isla Sorna and Jurassic Park" IIRC. That said, the Dinosaur Protection Group site claims that the introduction of certain invasive species (namely, the new dinosaurs we saw in Jurassic Park III (2001)) caused Isla Sorna's ecosystem to suffer an imbalance, so maybe that's why they decided that moving the dinosaurs to Isla Sorna wasn't a good plan.

Goofs

Zia's choice to use T. rex blood for Blue's transfusion makes sense insofar as the T. rex is the closest phylogenic relative of the Velociraptor; Allosaurus, Carnotaurus, and Baryonyx are distant cousins at best and Compsognathus is closer but you'd need an entire swarm of them to get enough blood for a man-sized raptor. Furthermore as all the Dinosaurs in Jurassic World were artificially grown and had holes in their DNA plugged with the same material its not out of the question that the Raptor and T. Rex are far more closely related then they would naturally be. It's not even out of the question that they have the exact same blood type if that were one of the traits that had to be artificially filled in. See more »

Great CGI, Terrible plot!
17 June 2018 | by peter_w82See all my reviews

Like a lot of others are saying the first part of the film, where they are escaping from the island is great and quite exciting and sets the film up pretty well.

However once the major action scene is over and they have to focus on the main story things start to go downhill. I think what bothers me the most is that a lot of the writing is just lazy and not well thought through or truely creative. Instead we get more of the same themes from the original JP films plus some more from JW. (Mutant dinosaur + evil corporate guys)

All of the main characters stories are pretty unbelievable and there isn't enough investment in developing their individual personalities / backstory so we understand why they behave the way they do. Sometimes I feel like the major action scenes were thought up first and then the story was just sort of inserted between them as a glue so we have a way of getting from one action scene to the next.

If you go and see this film you will probably enjoy it and it will most certainly entertain you for a while but after the moment has passed I am not left with the sense that I have seen something truely groundbreaking. Unfortunately I can't help but compare it to the original Jurassic park film and consider how it doesn't even come close to the terrifying moments of suspence and the brilliant portrayal of the different characters we got in JP1.

Given that there are so many 9+ reviews on here maybe i am in the minority but I just feel like we are letting Hollywood get away with lazy writing, which contains numerous plot holes just so we can marvel at some cool CGI. We really should'nt be satisfied with this state of affairs. We should all be demanding better, more creative writing that continues to offer us something new and exciting. This will only happen if we stop rating these mediocre generic blockbuster films so highly.

Was it was entertaining? yes without a doubt, but this is nowhere near a 9/10 film and you all know it. When rating these films please be honest with yourselves and send Hollywood a message. Don't let them think that lazy writing is ok. We aren't idiots and we do value a well written and interesting story.
