Feels more like a late-night cable film rather than a Hollywood product, much less a Spielbergian film. If Jurassic World's effects relied too much on CGI to create-- as opposed to how it should be use: to enhance-- then its use in this third entry 14 years before-- and thus faker looking-- is hammy. Furthermore, the plot and action never rises out of cliches, making the soap-opera feel not do the story any favors.
Jurassic park franchise is an important part of my childhood including this one. I'm sick of people comparing the sequel with the first one. the first one was based on michael crichton's novel. and he didn't wrote a sequel. so get over it..
Losing a Goldblum but gaining a Neill, this sequel continues the tried-and-true stupidity of its characters while combining the focus on action from Lost World. However, not only does Neill provide the anchor for the audience, he's joined by another intelligent survivor in a plucky young kid. Thankfully, the standard plot is filled w/ really good set pieces w/ a good blend of digital/practical effects.
