2:09 If the dinosaurs are out in the world, I’m surprised humans aren’t extinct.
6:19 “Everybody good?” “NO!”
16:44 “You’re not trapped here, we just don’t trust people.” Same, dude.
22:47 Yay the OGs! Alan and Ellie forever!
25:19 100% want to read his book ‘How Will the World End’
32:59 “Promise me you won’t go in there in your vest and mess everything up.”
37:40 Lewis Dodgson… or Tim Cook?
50:25 “I can’t get involved” is not a “no, haven’t seen her” answer.
59:20 They’re like Ghostbusters, just capturing them in a trap!
1:00:18 I’d like to know more about how the tracker works because it doesn’t make sense.
1:11:37 These dino locusts are really the stuff of nightmares.
1:18:37 “Whatever happens… that’s the plan.”
1:26:24 They’ve really amped up the horror movie in this.
1:47:33 I really can’t cope with old and new colliding like this.
1:56:29 “You made a promise… to a dinosaur.”
2:11:32 We’re reducing Jurassic Park to just ’the incident’ now??

Thoughts

I was excited for this movie - getting the gang back together - who wouldn’t be? And it was fantastic to see Dern and Neill, Alan and Ellie, back on our screens with their will-they won’t-they chemistry. The trouble is, that’s really all that was good about this movie.

The premise initially seemed to be how humans and dinosaurs will coexist on the planet but actually it wasn’t about that at all. Most of the action took place at Biosyn HQ with that cooped up dinosaurs-will-get-you feeling. The horror felt ramped up but some of the set pieces were good, and I quite liked the new characters.

It’s just disappointing that I really didn’t care for the story and if it wasn’t for the return of the OG Jurassic Park trio, there really wouldn’t be a lot to tune in for.
