Four 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.

Years after the destruction of the Jurassic World theme park, Owen Grady and Claire Dearing return to the island of Isla Nublar to save the remaining dinosaurs from a volcano that's about to erupt. They soon encounter terrifying new breeds of gigantic dinosaurs, while uncovering a conspiracy that threatens the entire planet.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing from the first movie. Claire is now behind a campaign to save the remaining dinosaurs from an extinction-level event of as once dormant volcano threatens to erupt on the island. She travels to a mansion in Northern California to talk to Benjamin Lockwood (played by James Cromwell), last of the two men behind Jurassic Park (the other was Hammond). He lives at the place both him and Hammond started cloning the first dinosaurs below the mansion. His granddaughter, Maisie, lives with him and Eli Mills, the businessman who works for him.

Claire then goes to convince Owen to come help her and find his velociraptor, Blue, the last of her kind on the island, and help save some of the dinosaurs for transport to an island sanctuary for them. Of course, they will learn nothing is as it seems.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was better than I worried it would be. There are more of the scary moments like in the first film to start it all, Jurassic Park, with some new stuff added that if I said anything, would give it away, plus maybe for the possible plot of the next film I hope they will make. Though I know these movies are for the kids as well as adults, maybe a 
darker and a bit bloodier version film (more R-rated?) would have worked more realistically when dinosaurs attack a human or another dino. But again, this is more Spielberg than the two original novels by Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park and The Lost World. Still, it’s a good popcorn movie for the summer time, something worth seeing on the big screen, while darker in tone than its predecessor. 

I give Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom 41/2 Jurassic sheep.
