Director Colin Trevorrow forgets to give the audience a sense of awe and wonder about the dinosaurs in this charmless threequel.

Jurassic World: Dominion reunites the stars of the 1993 franchise starter for the first time in three decades but it strands them in a film bloated with pointless exposition, stacked with boring, predictable action sequences and devoid of charms.

If the end of the previous entry hinted at an interesting new direction, with dinosaurs now roaming in the wild, Dominion inexplicably hardly does anything with that idea as it adds a dumb plot about genetically modified grasshoppers and spends the final half of the film in yet another contained park-like environment.

Director Colin Trevorrow not only doesn't bring the thrills, he forgets to give the audience the one ingredient that made Jurassic Park such a huge success: a sense of awe and wonder about the dinosaurs.

The few charms Dominion produces are mostly due to the undiminished chemistry between old pros Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, even if they are saddles with awful dialogue, but surely after this undercooked and overlong trilogy closer extinction looms for the franchise.
