Great in all respects, except....
24 February 2019
Following on three years after the events of Jurassic World, the island of Isla Nublar is in danger from an erupting volcano and the race is on to save the remaining dinosaurs from extinction.
Bringing along characters from the previous instalment, there is an immediate sense of familiarity in the opening stages of the film. The story is told at breakneck pace with constant action and loads of excellent quality special effects, as you would expect.
Where I was disappointed (and this will not be a problem for many people) was the change in the main location - up to now the Jurassic Park films have for much of the time been located on an isolated island with lots of space for the dinosaurs to move and interact with people, with a lot of beautiful locations on display. However this time the action very quickly moves to enclosed areas on the mainland and I felt the movie suffered quite a lot from this change.
In regard to the 3D presentation, I have read bad reviews but was pleasantly surprised and felt that there was enough action going on both in front of and behind the screen to keep me happy. I have seen better but I have seen much worse than what is on display here. 4.5 stars.
