Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)

Director: J.A. Bayona. Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rafe Spall, Daniella Pineda, Isabella Sermon, James Cromwell, Toby Jones, Ted Levine, Jeff Goldblum, BD Wong, Geraldine Chaplin. 128 min. Rated PG-13. Sci-fi/Adventure.

It's okay. As a director, you loved Jurassic Park, so you want to pay respect in its fourth sequel, and therefore open with a dinosaur eating an employee. But you don't stop there. Your wide-eyed characters watch a brachiosaurus entering the Park/World. And again run from beasts (and lava) they thought they could handle. And again end up with the worst man-eater, in a museum, who learned how to turn doorknobs, who ate a lawyer, who is again attacked by a raptor at the climax. And I haven't even touched the surface. Instead of "paying respect", call it ...
