A trail of clues in JA Bayona’s sequel suggests that the Indoraptor, patchy coiffure and all, is commentary on a certain prehistoric president
Imagine a creature whose sole purpose is weaponised destruction at an unfathomable level, created by unfettered capitalism and paid for by nefarious Russian interests. Are we talking about a summer action picture or are we talking about the 45th president of the United States? Who says it can’t be both?
JA Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is, in my estimation, anodyne dumb fun with heavy emphasis on the dumb. Unlike its predecessor (predecessaurus?), directed by Hollywood laughing stock Colin Trevorrow, the latest dino-romp doesn’t strive to be anything bordering on serious. It’s a movie made for afternoon viewing; an amusement, not the main event for your Saturday.
