As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.
Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
Three years after the Jurassic World theme park was closed down, Owen and Claire return to Isla Nublar to save the dinosaurs when they learn that a once dormant volcano on the island is active and is threatening to extinguish all life there. Along the way, Owen sets out to find Blue, his lead raptor, and discovers a conspiracy that could disrupt the natural order of the entire planet. Life has found a way, again.Written by
Dr. Ian Malcolm's line in Jurassic Park (1993) "This isn't some species that was obliterated by deforestation or the building of a dam. Dinosaurs had their shot, and nature selected them for extinction." actually turned out true as it foreshadows Isla Nublar being destroyed by the volcano in this movie. See more »
When Owen is locked and provokes a Stygimoloch to break the door of his cell, we can clearly see that, in the shot taken inside the cell, the door is opening just before the charging head of the dinosaur makes contact. The action is then repeated from outside the cell, and the charging head of the dinosaur is not oriented in the same way. See more »

The Italian version has three scenes trimmed for violence before submitting the film to the local censorship commissions. These are: 1) T-Rex inside a cage swallowing a goat 2) Indoraptor swallowing the bitten-off hand of Ken Wheatley) Ted Levine and then roaring his hat off. 3) T-Rex and Carnosaur ripping in two the body of Eli Mills (Rafe Spall) See more »
This movie generates so much debate as to determine Fallen Kingdom is either the worst or the best movie of the saga, that it was a natural choice as subject of my first review on IMDB.
The main challenge of Fallen Kingdom was to find a plausible reason for characters to get the stupid idea of returning to the island. Not only Bayona developed that in a smart way, but he achieved quite efficiently to move on from a déjà vu plot to bring his own view on how a Jurassic movie should be. And damn, I wish we never came back to Isla Sorna, Isla Nublar, or any other island from now on.
This movie proposes new characters and plot developments, brings new perspectives to the jurassic park saga in such a way that we leave the present movie with more questions than answers.
Juan Antonio Bayona's direction and photography is by far the most artistic of all Jurassic Movies and he has achieved to bring horror movies standards to a film with dinos, something I never expected to be so enjoyable.
Although the screenplay is too predictable and suffer inconsistencies and irregular rhythm, I have really enjoyed how Bayona is able to generate many tensions, something I though only Spielberg was able to create with dinosaurs. I am not easily impressed, I just remember how I was shivering and feeling stressful when I first watched iconic scenes such as the appearance of the T-Rex in the first movie, and the rescue of the baby T-Rex by its parents in the Lost World. Well, I got that feeling in Fallen Kingdom, not only once, but several times in one single movie.
Fallen Kingdom is really an excellent entertaining movie, as long as you watch it with an open mind.
Lots of watchers give bad review complaining that it's not Jurassic Park anymore, but what do they expect, really ? Just pick up a DVD so that you can keep watching a movie you enjoyed.
