Jurassic World Dominion Early Reactions Deeply Divide Movie Critics

The early reactions to Jurassic World Dominion are in, and critics are deeply divided in their thoughts. Dominion is the upcoming third installment in the Jurassic World series, which began as a soft-reboot of Jurassic Park back in 2015. So far, the series, which stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in lead roles, has proved a box office hit with its first two installments. Both Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom grossed well over $1 billion dollars globally during their release, quickly leading to a third film.,Jurassic World Dominion will be set four years after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, as dinosaurs and humans are now living increasingly alongside one another. However, perhaps the most highly anticipated element of the film is that Dominion will see the return of the original Jurassic Park cast from the 1993 Steven Spielberg classic: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum. What’s more, Dominion is set to act as the finale to the Jurassic World trilogy, as Pratt himself recently referred to the film as “the end of the franchise.”,Related: Why Jurassic World Dominion Is Bringing Back Alan Grant & Ellie Sattler,Now, the first reactions to Jurassic World Dominion have begun to appear online, and it’s clear that the third installment has failed to win over all critics over. Instead, Dominion has proved a very divisive sequel. The film has been described as “convoluted & all over the place,” “underwhelming” and “wildly repetitive.” However, some critics disagreed, and praised Dominion‘s attempts at leaning into nostalgia, as well as the blended CGI and practical effects used to create the dinosaurs. More positive reactions also called Dominion a “fun adventure,” and lauded its lead performances. Check out a selection of the reactions below:,The Jurassic Park franchise has experienced many ups and downs since it began in the early ‘90s. However, it’s unclear from these mixed reviews where exactly Jurassic World Dominion may sit in terms of the series’ overall ranking. Some of these early reactions indicate that the film is likely a fun experience for those viewers willing to suspend disbelief and appreciate its sheer spectacle and nostalgia, and are not overly concerned with a cohesive plot. When the official Dominion reviews are released, the film is likely to experience comparisons to another recent legacy sequel in Top Gun: Maverick, which has been universally praised for both its highly entertaining action sequences, and emotionally resonant storyline and performances.,However, it is important to remember that general audiences often have different tastes to critics, and it’s likely that Jurassic World Dominion will still enjoy a strong box office performance despite these early mixed reviews. The wider public may sway towards those who see Dominion as simply a fun, action-packed and nostalgic return to the Jurassic universe. However, if the Jurassic World trilogy ends with a critical flop and fails to impress as thoroughly as its predecessors, this may make the immediate potential future of the franchise less clear. Either way, audiences don’t have long to wait before they see Jurassic World Dominion and decide for themselves when the film hits theaters on June 10th.,More: Jurassic World Dominion Wastes A Key Part Of The Original Movie,Source: Twitter (various, see above)
