Dominion is the fatal finale of the hit series

Stupid, boring, without ideas and with a lot of recreational patterns. Jurassic World: Dominion demands too much from even the most die-hard dinosaur lovers.

Jurassic World: Dominion – what is the third part of the trilogy about?

The third part of the “Jurassic World” trilogy, and the sixth part of the entire series tries to marry the old generation with the new. So this film has two storylines that flow in parallel and at some point meet, of course in the third act. On one side, we learn about the fate of Owen and Claire (played successively by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard). They try to raise their adopted daughter, Maisie, who is a clone of Charlotte Lockwood (which is, in a way, their mother – and this is just the beginning of script nonsense). However, Maisie is kidnapped, so Owen and Claire set out to save her. At the same time, mutant locusts begin to roam the American fields, threatening food production around the globe. The case is being investigated by Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), which we remember from the first “Jurassic Park”. However, she asks for the support of Alan Grant, also remembered from the first “Jurassic …” (Sam Neill).

Jurassic World: Dominion – the worst part of the series?

I will answer the above question right away – yes! Unfortunately. Jurassic World: Dominion is a movie so evil and stupid that it’s hard to believe that it belongs to the same series as the original Jurassic Park. The two films are separated by almost 20 years and there is an even greater quality gap. The script is just terrible. It’s a chaotic and poorly glued jumble of loose ideas from other Hollywood blockbusters. There is some adventure movie here and far too many James Bond elements for somehow. The dinosaurs actually appear here only as a cutscene for the monstrously written dialogue scenes.

Bringing actors from the original series against the assumptions did not work in favor of “Jurassic World: Dominion.” First of all, their comeback is a pure cash leap and a nostalgia prey that doesn’t even try to script it as making sense. Jurassic Park characters are back because they are supposed to come back. And that’s it. Their plots are also an embarrassing shadow of the previous trilogy. Nostalgia can be played very skillfully (the example is the new “Top Gun: Maverick”), while the creators of “Jurassic World: Dominion” followed the least line of resistance. Secondly, the presence of the “old guard” only reminds us that the previous trilogy (especially the first part) was light years better. And she hadn’t even gotten so terribly old.

I don’t know if “Jurassic World: Dominion” fell victim to the fact that 6 parts of the whole series are too much for a story about dinosaurs, or whether the assumptions of the “Jurassic World” series, which were supposed to lead to this point from the beginning, are more of a problem. Anyway, the whole thing is just a poor C-class blockbuster, but with a huge budget. The plot does not stick together and, on average, mocks the viewer’s intelligence every quarter of an hour. The characters always come to the rescue of our heroes at the most convenient moment, everything succeeds exactly when it is supposed to be successful – the result is that the viewer does not feel any tension. And this is a much more serious sin of Jurassic World: Dominion. I am able to forgive blockbusters for their stupidity, because I go to them for escapist purposes, but I do not forgive boredom and poor workshop. The whole thing is also poorly directed (I’m slowly running out of adjectives to describe the weaknesses of this production). I didn’t think I could watch an action movie about dinosaurs and just yawn with boredom in the world.

In the end, Jurassic World: Dominion feels like a film that has been drummed by the entire crew and deprived of that most important element – passion. This film is a tape creation that owes its popularity to the fact that it carries a well-known brand (now on the cobblestones), which is associated by several generations of viewers. A smart way to earn money. Worse with the expectation of a quality product.

Is it worth going to the cinema at Jurassic World: Dominion?

I would like to say yes, but unfortunately I cannot. Of course, my guess is that multitudes of people will go anyway regardless of the warnings and assurances about the poor quality of this film. Well, it might be worthwhile for everyone to see for themselves. If so, I have a clear conscience – I warned. This is the smallest problem, but by the way – was the distributor really unable to translate the title of “Jurassic World: Dominion” into Polish? It’s not that I’m a purist, but the previous subtitle has been translated. “Dominion” is not a proper name, also for the sake of professional consistency.
