Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was some good, mindless fun but repeated too many of the same movie tropes as every other Jurassic movie to date.
Lessons Learned from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
There’s nothing like the potential of physical harm to spur your butt to move.
- The threat of a lava-burning death spurred Owen’s body to “wake up” from the tranquilizer.
There’s no hiding things from kids.
- Kids are always listening and paying attention as Maisie demonstrated while listening in on Eli’s secret plan.
Don’t enter a cage with a carnivorous dinosaur.
- Yep, if what you wanted was a bloody, terror filled death, you want about it the right way, guy.
Bullets fly. You don’t need to have the gun against the dinosaur.
- This happens far too often in movies: a stupid soldier approaching Blue in the lab after Blue’s already attacked another soldier. Shoot from a distance, ya big dumb-dumb.
When there is a stampede (of anything), run…
- Another common movie trope repeated with these senseless soldier deaths.
It’s always the rich white guy…
- True dat, one more trope for the record. Not sure who the bad guy is going to be? Look towards your “friendly” rich white guy for the answer.
