The new installment of the Return to Jurassic World franchise is a shining example of the delivery of its ideas and warnings from the world behind the scenes through a movie attraction. Global hunger, attempts to prove to earthlings that biological and genetic engineering is the coming of a new evolution in human development comparable to the creation of nuclear power. The two Spielberg fantasies and even the 2015 film did not reek of artificial apocalypse. Malcolm himself has a snide comment about how no one will notice the destruction of humanity. He knows better, of course, and this is Goldblum’s fourth time playing the role. Now it’s a true false prophet, telling an oblivious public about genetic engineering and the creation of a new man. After COVID-19 and the conspiracy theories that followed it, huge corporations wanting to create artificial hunger, and by extension, anarchy, do not look like something fantastic.
The franchise finally manages to pull out the forgotten Sam Neal and Laura Dern, but there’s little to play them. The viewer is presented with two stories that run in parallel. In one, Pratt and Dallas try to save their child, and in the second, a conspiracy from the two doctors is exposed. And in my opinion, the second arc still looks more interesting. The only thing Pratt lacks is Tony Stark’s glove: too many times in the movie he makes this kind of hand motion. Another story in which the characters run towards each other: they manage to talk about transhumanism, fight with an idiotic look on their faces and ride their motorcycle into a departing plane. Greed has ruined good franchises more than once, but we also understood after the first two films what the authors wanted to convey about the coexistence of different species and human responsibility for their intelligence. In the end, we are faced with a dead end and self-repeating, from which it is impossible not to get bored.
The ability to stop in time is the virtue that is so lacking in today’s franchises, which began more than 30 years ago. Such was the case with the Terminator series of films. Spielberg, like Cameron, said it all with his two pictures, and greed for money continued to mock the story. In Jurassic World, ecology is just a link between human stupidity and political and conspiracy hints. Having the supposed peace and reunion of the old heroes, and most importantly the creation of a dinosaur sanctuary, you give yourself credit that at any moment they will re-invent the story again and reach the point of absurdity with some australopithecine virus, not a locust virus. So Chris Pratt doesn’t have to worry, there’s always a place for him in this universe where he can promise the dinosaur to return the cub again with a one-handed gesture ala Tony Stark.
The final words, which sum up the long-suffering franchise, reek of excessive pathos and self-delusion by the writers themselves. That man is capable of saving the ecology and must coexist with the more ancient creatures on planet Earth, and that he is not the crown of nature. However, we continue to love beautiful words that will remain just words.
