Trivia

Colin Trevorrow was asked about the idea at the center of Jurassic World. Specifically, the interviewer brought up the connection to Frankenstein with regards to how the creatures humanity has created have turned against them. While that connection is certainly there, it appears Trevorrow is making a little more of a statement about society. "To me it's about greed. The first film is about how if there's money on the table, there will be somebody who will do the worst imaginable things, or in a lot of case, the dumbest imaginable thing in order to get that money. This film focuses a little bit more on our responsibility for these animals that we've made as a result of that greed, but also just the darkest and worst instincts of humans, again, if there's money involved."

The Star Lord of the Jurassic Period
7 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

In 2015, Colin Trevorow brought to life the dying interest of the viewer to the prehistoric inhabitants of the Earth. "The world of the Jurassic period" did not become a revelation, repeating in many ways the concept of the early films initiated by Steven Spielberg. However, the picture managed to break the cash register and prove its relevance even many years after the release of the third Park. Part of this is the merit of the writers, in part Trevorow himself, who brought his vision of history to the viewer.

The sequel studio Universal entrusted the director Juan Antonio Bayon, familiar to the viewer on the recent "Monster's Voice". However, for the script, among others, Colin Trevorow still answers, which is probably why many of the motives from the First World here are developing.

The events of the "Fallen Kingdom" (such a subtitle have a sequel in the original) occur three years after the catastrophic failure of the new Jurassic Park. The island of Nublar is abandoned, and the dinosaurs scattered throughout the territory. Everything changes the sudden awakening of the island volcano, which threatens to destroy the formed ecosystem. Claire Diring (Bryce Dallas Howard), the heroine of the last part, is ready to do anything to save the dinosaurs from the dying island, so when there is a chance to take part in the rescue mission, Claire does not hesitate for a minute. And with it, Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) returns to the island, whose task is to find Blue Raptor, which is of great scientific value due to its cognitive characteristics.

"Jurassic World 2" does not try to be more than he really is. This is an exciting adventure with dinosaurs, which is firmly based on the foundation laid in his novels by Michael Crichton, and after him Steven Spielberg his screen version. The screenwriters once again beat the same stamps that we saw earlier, but they do it unobtrusively and with imagination. It would seem that the roaring tyrannosaurus we see every film, rescuing children from a predator - without it anywhere, a system that gets out of human control - this is what the entire franchise is all about. And yet the World of the Jurassic period raises rather curious ethical questions, which previously in the films were not particularly covered. In particular, the question of cloning and how far a person can go by mastering this technology.

A separate mention is worthy of the storyline of Raptor Blue and Owen Grady. According to the previous film, we remember that Owen was training the raptors, and some of them showed amazing learning abilities. Blue was the most capable of them. And therefore the most tenacious. The sequel continues this line of uneasy relationships between man and predator, and, perhaps, this is the strongest side of the "Jurassic World". If earlier dinosaurs were only a spontaneous force that broke out of the control of a person, and caused little sympathy, now the franchise is trying to fall in love with the viewer into the dinosaurs through the Blue Raptor. And it's not bad at all. Blue, in fact, a full-fledged heroine of the franchise along with Claire and Owen, and the final picture hints that her role in history will be much more important than we thought before.

"The fallen kingdom" could become an exemplary sequel, if not for the frankly undeveloped scenario. The first part of the film, which takes place on the island, and the second - at Lockwood's estate - are so different in tone that it seems like they are two different films that someone glued into one. Instead of the beautiful landscapes of Nublar Island, we spend more and more time in the dark corridors of the park and the enclosed spaces of the estate, so that claustrophobia begins to develop not only in poor dinosaurs, but also in the viewer. The second weak point of the film is its antagonists. Unprincipled businessmen who are eager to cash in on dinosaurs are a terry stamp that works here in so far as, and the next toothy-fanged miracle of genetic engineering differs little from Indominus from the past film.

And yet, despite the unevenness of the script, the World of the Jurassic Period 2 turned out to be spectacular, sometimes dramatic (the lone dying brachiosaur on the beach is Hachiko divided by the sinking in the icy water of Jack) and truly adventurous, in the best traditions of the genre. And this means that the reptiles of the Jurassic period will continue to dominate the cinemas and the minds of the viewer for a long time.
