On June 10, cinemas finally welcomed a Hollywood blockbuster ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’, the conclusion of the ‘Jurassic World’ series and the conclusion of the series after 4 years of ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’.
Despite the return of the first ‘Jurassic Park’ actor after 29 years, however, the film’s word of mouth is not as expected as usual, but instead the word of mouth collapsed.
‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ is a direct flop on the overseas review site Rotten Tomatoes.
Its initial Rotten Tomatoes freshness was only 38%, dropping to 34% freshness after the first day of release (and now down to 33%), and the audience popcorn rating was not high at 79%, and Tom Cruise’s reputation of ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ 97% freshness is very embarrassing next to each other.
MTC’s professional critics gave ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ a score of only 37 out of 100, and the audience rating was only 6.7.
Because the film is too much drama, dragging, and did not see too many shocking dinosaur special effects, ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ can not draw a perfect conclusion, if there is anything else is able to let people stay on the reason, on the “emotion” two words.
Some people used a four-word review: the tail of the dog. Many people gave a bad review, and some even left a message saying: see half pull out the phone to type a bad review.
Speaking of “dinosaur blockbusters”, to start with the great director Steven Spielberg’s 1993 release of ‘Jurassic Park’, also from that time, the beginning of the screen dinosaur blockbuster journey.
‘Jurassic Park’ is adapted from Michael Crichton’s novel of the same name published in 1990. The film focuses on Dr. Hammond’s gathering of a large group of scientists to use dinosaur blood from prehistoric mosquitoes condensed in amber to extract dinosaur genes and bring back a prehistoric behemoth that has been extinct for 65 million years, making the entire Isla Nublar becomes a dinosaur paradise ……
The first two films of the “Jurassic Park” trilogy were directed by Steven Spielberg, after the first film was a huge success, the second film was released in 1997, also continued the myth, the third film was released in 2001, the director changed to Joe Johnston, the rating and reputation is not as good as the first two films.
The ‘Jurassic World’ series was started in 2015, the male lead changed from Sam Neill’s Alan Grant to Chris Pratt’s Owen, the first ‘Jurassic World’ also had a good reputation, the latest release ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’, is The latest release of ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’, is the conclusion of the series.
The opening of the film ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ is set four years after the destruction of Isla Nublar. Today, dinosaurs are living and hunting with humans around the world.
This fragile balance will reshape the future and ultimately determine whether humanity can share this planet with the most fearsome creatures in history and remain at the top of the food chain.
Previously, the media had high expectations for the film, even using the phrase “This dinosaur aims to gobble up the chart-topper ‘Top Gun: Maverick'”, believing it could compete with Tom Cruise’s ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ at the box office.
In addition to the undercurrent of a simultaneous release in over 4,600 theaters across Northern America, it is widely believed that ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ has one huge selling point: the reunion of Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, the stars of director Steven Spielberg’s first ‘Jurassic Park’ (1993), on the big screen for the first time in 29 years! Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum reunite on the big screen for the first time in 29 years!
For Sam Neill’s return to play Alan Grant after nearly 30 years, quite a fan favorite, he also gave an interview to the press about what it’s like to come back: “You go to work and say your lines, and then you go home afterwards. Then 20 or 30 years later, you realize that a line or whatever you said at work that day has become a pop culture. It’s something you can never predict, and it’s funny, isn’t it?”
Jurassic World’ director and screenwriter Colin Trevorrow, after dropping out of the second film, returns to direct the third, this time with dinosaurs living and hunting alongside humans around the world, reuniting the two stars of the ‘Jurassic’ series in the final film, together in a saga of extinct dinosaurs.
But, as press critics have commented, this ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ is a sequel to a classic that is more than a little frustrating.
While it’s still a thrilling dinosaur blockbuster, it completely ignores the heart and humanity and the mesmerizing and unforgettable awe of its predecessor.
The film features a large number of hybridized and mutated giant locusts, about which some critics and viewers spat, “I came to see dinosaurs, not bugs that are a little bigger than them.”
Many critics and audiences found the story of ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ to be flat as water and unimaginative: scene after scene followed a familiar narrow escape template, with no threat for more than a few minutes.
For the film’s dinosaur special effects, critics and viewers also believe that the lack of novelty and soul.
Although “the types of dinosaurs are certainly diverse, and most of the CG effects work is solid enough,” compared to the days when Steven Spielberg did not have such advanced special effects technology when he made ‘Jurassic Park,’ “Steven Spielberg lens dinosaurs are full of artistry, now ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ in the dinosaurs, look like digital painting, no magic.”
Although ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ was not as well received as expected, a blockbuster was finally released, and the “dinosaur blockbuster” opened this year’s summer season.
