I kind of kick myself for watching too many trailers because I felt it ruined a lot of the suspense for me. They showed too much but I get that itís my fault for watching them.

Major spoilers ahead....


I enjoyed the first first part on the island. This movie is certainly much more dark and cruel. The animals dying and being treated poorly. Owen being left to die. Threats to shoot the doctor girl. The grandpa being murdered. They did a good job also having funny parts. So from that perspective the movie did a good job of making you feel and think.

Of course it was all wrapped up in a nice politically correct bow for the modern world. You have the nerdy kid being heroic. The young girl being heroic. The creation of an Asian woman character. The black kid. The evil Russia bidding for the most dangerous dinosaurs. Donít get me wrong, Iím no racist or person who have anything against other people, but itís so obviously forced and tiresome. The only thing we were missing was the gay couple.

Iíll admit I didnít like the indoraptor. I felt the entire ďhaunted mansionĒ part was average at best. I enjoyed the throwbacks to the original ďoven door closing sceneĒ. To me, Jeff goldblumís speeches were the best part. Perhaps the movie serves as a modern warning to genetics being used.

The end of the movie that was set up for the next one just seems bad. I have a horrible feeling for what the next one will be.

The fallen kingdom was ok, but it clearly falls in third to me, and itís quite a large margin.
So, if everyone was white, it would have been okay and "normal?" Not forced?

Good lord it was horrible. Too many plot holes, awful watching dinosaurs getting tortured, and just an incredibly stupid plot.

Daniella PiŮeda isn't Asian. She's Mexican-American. And she's one of the best things about a movie that isn't better than its predecessor.

Just saw it yesterday, and found I was bored. I didnít like that they had three different stories going on and didnít do much with two of the stories. It was as if they had all these ideas, but couldnít come up with any solid way to flesh out those stories.

It just didnít work for me.

The island evacuation premise could have served 80% of the movie. The "auction" and ensuing mansion crawl were preposterous. And to think, the same guys wrote this one!

The very end of the movie (especially the post-credits scene) reveals the actual movie I want to see!

I enjoy all the responses I have received so far. Its tough to spend money on a money and then find that you completely hate it, so I feel especially bad for those that hated it. I tend to have low standard with movies, so I can find some form of enjoyment with almost anything I watch.

Having said all that, this one was pretty weak. I don't think there was any more dino torture than in Lost World. For the most part the dino's were simply captured and put in cages. The deaths on the island were acts of nature. While they were sad, it was hardly torturous. For me the most heavy handed 'torture' in the movie was the 'toxic air'. Anybody who has seen the movie should know what I am talking about.

My biggest complaine is that this movie really does punch you in the face with the whole evil corporation, super villain, take over the world atmosphere throughout the second half of the movie.

Doing fine at the box office. Almost 150 million domestic opening week-end. I think that tends to average about a 300 million domestic take. That isn't bad. Most of the viewers are giving it pretty good though not great reviews. I don't think movies like this are generally highly acclaimed, even by the movie goers themselves.

That's what the first Jurassic movie one did, that's all I want to know if this one will do. Otherwise the thrill is gone for good. That first one, rocked my world scared the bejesus out o me.

I may go see it as I hear there are some good scares in this one. ???
