The park is gone, but the franchise remains. On the heels of the success of 2015's Jurassic World, there's quite a bit of fan enthusiasm to see what Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has in store for its release later this month. Luckily, CinemaBlend's own Mike Reyes was able to see the film, and his review promises a top-notch summer blockbuster. In his review, Mike wrote:
It looks like you can start getting excited, folks. Mike's review not only suggests that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a good movie, but he also notes that the film balances out its fun with some darker edge that feels reminiscent of the classic Michael Crichton source material. Like some other monster movies that have debuted this year such as A Quiet Place, this is one that earns the theatrical experience.
That sentiment is echoed in THR's review of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, as A Monster Calls director J.A. Bayona has apparently tapped into his talent for bringing otherworldly creatures to life and created an atmospheric blockbuster that honors the traditions of the genre and the franchise. THR wrote:
It also seems that the switch from director Colin Trevorrow to J.A. Bayona has arguably served Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom well. Vanity Fair's review of the film notes that Bayona has tapped into the current boom of the horror genre and really shines as a filmmaker when he moves away from the DNA of other Jurassic sequels like The Lost World. In its review, Vanity Fair said:
However, not every critic is quite so enamored with the return of the dinosaurs. In fact, while Indiewire noted in its review that J.A. Bayona does a commendable job making a solid action movie out of a bad script, the elements of his strength as a filmmaker don't blend properly. The review said:
That's what some of the critics have to say about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom so far, but make sure to catch the movie in theaters on June 22 to see it for yourself!
