Jurassic World Dominion review: Nostalgic but bumpy ride

By H.JanGra June 9, 2022

Jurassic World Dominion opened to mixed reviews from critics

The film which is marketed as the finale for the franchise also brought back both the old and new “Jurassic” stars.

Actors Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum all of whom starred in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original came back along with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who star in the new franchise

This is a very crowded movie — so many species of dinosaur, and I’m so bad at keeping track of them that my 8-year-old-self is no longer speaking to me.

A. O. Scott, New York Times

There are some flickers of fun, largely from the geezer generation: Dern and Neill have a nice chemistry and Goldblum is dependably droll.

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

The only joy in this movie comes from its precise mimicry. It has no identity of its own, which becomes depressingly apparent when the franchise’s old and new characters finally come face to face.
