Jurassic World Dominion Becomes Worst-Reviewed Jurassic Park Film Ever

Jurassic World Dominion Becomes Worst-Reviewed Jurassic Park Film Ever

The film was released today and critics aren't happy, with one saying the film induced 'overwhelming boredom.'

Jurassic World Dominion has become the worst-reviewed film in the franchise's history.

Look, whether you love dinosaurs or just want to see Jeff Goldblum reprise his iconic role as Dr. Ian Malcolm, we've all been waiting for the newest Jurassic World film.

However, the film was released today and critics aren't happy, with one saying the film induced 'overwhelming boredom'.

Surely, the film can't be that bad – right?

The synopsis sounds pretty decent at least: "From Jurassic World architect and director Colin Trevorrow, Dominion takes place four years after Isla Nublar has been destroyed. Dinosaurs now live—and hunt—alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures."

And it sees the original Jurassic Park cast get together again for a pretty chaotic trip down memory lane – sounds like a sure-fire hit, right?

Well, according to Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer, it absolutely isn't, as the new film scored an underwhelming 34% – the lowest of any of the films in the franchise.

By comparison, Dominion's sister films Fallen Kingdom (2018) and Jurassic World (2015) scored 47% and 71% respectively.

You may be wondering where Jurassic Park fits into all this? Well, the original 1993 film got a whopping 91% on the movie review site, so it's pretty fair to say the franchise has gone downhill – or is close to extinction, whichever way you want to look at it.

So, what are critics saying about the film?

David Simms from The Atlantic said: "All of these narrative jigsaw pieces interlock into overwhelming boredom, frequent watch-watching. Jurassic World: Dominion amounts to a complete waste of time."

Bilge Ebiri of New York Magazine said: "Watching Jurassic World: Dominion, you might find yourself starting to feel just a little sorry for the people who made Jurassic World: Dominion."

Susan Kamyab from This Chic Flix said: "The only takeaway from Jurassic World Dominion is that the franchise is ready for extinction."

However, some enjoyed the film, with Sandra Hall from the Sydney Morning Herald calling it 'a fiendishly choreographed battle for survival that successfully suspends all your critical faculties, ending the franchise on a giddy high – if it is the end. I suspect not. Where movie dinosaurs are concerned, never say die'.

So, if you still want to see the film where life always finds a way, it's out today, 10 June.
