Trivia

First Jurassic Park chapter to be shot digitally and in widescreen 2.39:1, which J.A. Bayona has used on his previous films. The first three Jurassic Park films were shot in 1.85:1, while Jurassic World (2015) was produced in 2.00:1. The first three Jurassic Park films were shot in 1.85:1 to better accommodate the dinosaurs in the same frame. When the previous film was made, DP John Schwartzman and director Colin Trevorrow we're aiming to shoot in 2.39:1, despite Steven Spielberg's preference for 1.85:1, so the Univisium 2.00:1 aspect ratio was used. Bayona decided to shoot this film in 2.39:1 as he wanted "to do a movie that cannot be seen on a plane," and because the film deals with a colossal population of dinosaurs in the same frame. He even cited the films of cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, who shot Steven Spielberg's The Sugarland Express (1974), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), and 1941 (1979), as inspiration for the widescreen look of the film.

Great CGI, Terrible plot!
17 June 2018 | by See 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.
