Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ★★★★½

Unapologetically ridiculous yet surprisingly thoughtful, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is not just a worthy and even better follow-up to its marvelously entertaining predecessor but also the best installment in the Jurassic Park series since Steven Spielberg’s groundbreaking 1993 classic, as well as a terrific big-budget blockbuster debut from director J.A. Bayona, with breathtaking visual effects, sublime cinematography and set designs, stunningly crafted action set pieces, interesting and mostly well-executed concepts, fun characters, great performances, rich and tense Gothic atmosphere, and a shockingly strong emotional core.
