So...

That little girl murdered roughly 100 people in the first night after releasing all of the dinosaurs?

The secret about the girl that’s dropped like a bomb and then forgotten actually makes her action far more interesting than the film is able to deal with.

Yeah, if the movie hadn't sat on that reveal until the last five minutes and instead did it at like the halfway point it could have had more build up to the ending.

It was a super telegraphed 'reveal' right? I definitely agree it should have come sooner, but even as someone who usually takes a while to pick up on things like that in films I had it pegged from pretty much the second scene with her.

It does?

Why?

We've cloned sheep. She's relatively as harmless as a sheep. The dinosaurs are carnivorous creatures that will either go on a buffet run in the first 24 hours or be quickly slaughtered by the military.

Anyway, I loved how the plot twist didn't have a moment to breathe. Almost immediately after, ACTION SCENE, like the filmmakers didn't care much for the twist either.

Because she’s the one that sets the dinosaurs loose upon the world.

Yeah, but the whole « I am a clone too so I empathise with them » thing is stupid. I hope to write a short review soon, but the entire movie celebrates life forms that are tremendously dangerous to human life and dismisses all human deaths, actual or potential, as unimportant. The characters spend more time trying to save one lizard's life than any human's.

Chris Pratt seemed so bored in this. It seemed like he was going through the motions. He could learn something from Tom Cruise when it comes to running. He was jogging that whole time.

Also, the little girl being a clone. That was a shark jumping moment for me. It was just dumb. Even for a movie like this.
