The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva, Chad Riley and Spencer Williams, brave the volcano of uncertainty with this week’s review of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Now that the franchise has reached its fifth installment and expectations are high, how unique and thrilling can a theme park full of formerly extinct creatures truly be? Listen in and see if we’re ready for another trip to the genetic wonderland anytime soon...or think the franchise should call it quits.
Featuring performances from Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, James Cromwell, BD Wong, Toby Jones and Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the first film in the Jurassic Park franchise to be directed by J.A. Bayona. A protege of Guillermo del Toro, Bayona recently directed the adaptation of A Monster Calls (2017).
