“Jurassic World: Dominion” It might hit #1 at the domestic box office this weekendbut lackluster reviews and word of mouth can disrupt the potential run.

Inevitably, Jurassic World: Dominion, wrote Robbie Cullen, “will make a fortune all over the world, because these films have always done so.” In his review of the film for the Daily Telegraph. “But in terms of credibility, it’s an extinction-level event.”

The third and final film in the new “Jurassic Park” movie trilogy is the worst-reviewed of all six films in the franchise, currently with a 36% rating on Rotten Tomatoes Complex Review From 175 reviews.

while the worldwide The film is expected to generate about $125 million in ticket sales in the United States and Canada this weekend, and poor audience reception could hamper its total sales in the coming weeks. Not to mention that the film faces stiff competition from other films such as Disney and Marvel’s “Thor: Love and Thunder” in the coming weeks.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow, “Dominion” takes place four years after the destruction of Isla Nublar, the island that was a shelter for prehistoric cloned monsters. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard reprise their roles as Owen Grady and Claire Dering, joined by “Jurassic Park” alumni Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, who return as Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler and Ian Malcolm, respectively.

Joshua Rothkopf writes, “Even with the original cast on board, there is surprisingly little chemistry or humor, and the film pauses frequently to emphasize family values.” In his Entertainment Weekly review.

There is a broad consensus among critics that Dominion desperately wants to capture the nostalgia of Jurassic Park, but the stunning visual effects fail to make up for its lapses in storytelling and character development.

“Dominion is the last entry in a trilogy that at no point did she know what she was doing,” Lovery wrote in her article for The Independent. “It was like watching a cook’s recipe perfect for a butcher, before hand pouring seasoning after seasoning to try and fix it.”

There are “crumbs of ideas for better Jurassic films that no one has ever had the audacity to see to commit to,” said Lugri.

She referenced the evil “Jurassic World” played by Vincent Donofrio, who threatened to militarize Velociraptor.

“Dinosaurs with guns? Cool, they should’ve done that,” she wrote.

She then noted that “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” toyed with Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong) idea of ​​linking different dinosaur genes together to create new species.

“Mutant dinosaurs? Cool, they should’ve done that,” she wrote.

Dominion seems to follow the same pattern. The trailer teases that dinosaurs have been released from captivity and are now roaming among us. However, the film spends very little time on the concept, and instead explores larger-than-usual locusts destroying crops and the rescue operation after the kidnapping of Maisie (Isabella Sermon), a human clone of the daughter of one of the original Jurassic Park founders.

“The only way to truly enjoy ‘Dominion’ is to hold on tightly to those little sparks of imagination,” Lovery wrote.

“There’s a car chase in central Malta where a velociraptor pole is adorned with a metal pole,” she wrote. “Some genetic absurdity introduces the feathered, more scientifically accurate Therizinosaurus into the pack—a terrifying creature with ‘Babadook’ claws.” DeWanda Wise, as pilot Kayla Watts, easily slips into the role of Han Solo-esque hero so reluctant that she is frustrated introduced late Very much into the trio.”
