Jurassic World: Dominion, was released on June 10, 2022. It is an American sci-fi film, and a sequel to Jurassic Park: The Fallen Kingdom. It is the final film of The Jurassic Park trilogy. Steven Spielberg once again has outdone the film. All the versions of Jurassic Park deserve applause. Not only does it charm children, but even adults enjoy the movie.

The enduring, collective love for Jurassic Park is immensely hard to explain. The first film was made in 1993. It has been described by reviewers as a “platonic ideal of a blockbuster perfectly preserved in amber”.

‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ takes us through a motorcycle chase in the streets of Taos. The protagonists are Sam Veil, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and a new hotshot pilot De Wand Wise. It has a runtime of 2.5 hours.

Set 30 years into post-dino dystopia, the term refers to the era after the dinosaurs. The new era was riddled with chaos and destruction spread by locusts and tech giants. Biosin, a company run by Dodgson (Campbell Scott), caters to these tech giants.

Darius Bowman (Paul Mikel Williams), Kausar Mohammad (Yasmina or Yas) and Jenna Ortega (Brooklyn), Riani Ridguerz (Sammy), Ryan Potter (Kenji Kon) are the lead characters.

The play is set in Isla Nabur, where six teens join an adventure camp to visit dinosaurs.

The film uses fiction and imagination beautifully to put forward the idea of humans mingling with dinosaurs. It breaks the stereotype of dinosaurs being only savage. Dinosaurs, if dealt with kindness will not harm the human race.

The plot opens with Darius playing a game about dinosaurs on the computer.

Just as he is about to win, he loses and the game is set to be over.

His brother comes in telling him there’s more to life than just dinosaurs. But watching how keen his interest was, he decided to hide it from their Mom. Mom did not approve! So Darius had to be secretive.

However, Darius is determined to meet the dinosaurs.

Through the computer game, he is transported into Dino World. In Harry Potter, floo powder is used to transcend physical boundaries. How is that possible? Magic is at play here. That is how it’s made possible.

The costume design is vibrant. The colour palette of red, green, and yellow, brings life to the story. They are colours of fierceness, passion, freedom, nature, rebirth and renewal, warmth.

The scene shifts to Company Pen, the abode of the dinosaurs.

The teenagers are warned not to leave the premises after 9. However, Darius is all too excited and isn’t afraid of taking the risk.

Darius, Sammy and Kenji all sneak out in the middle of the night.

They are walking cautiously, when all of a sudden Kenji drops Sammy’s phone below the fence.

Overconfident, he jumps down to retrieve the phone not realizing the danger he is in!

Will Kenji encounter dinosaurs? If yes, will he be eaten alive or saved?

Who will help him?

Will the myth about dinosaurs be broken or is it not a myth? Did dinosaurs exist?

The series is a must-watch, especially for children. Not only will it develop their vocabulary, but it will also enhance their creativity and expression.

Jurassic World is no mystery. The Fallen Kingdom, the next in line is set in an era of 65 million years later after the dinosaurs became extinct.

Dominion, the title is self-explanatory. When man tries to establish control over nature. It results in devastation that is irrevocable.
