Contains all of the elements for a wonderful sequel yet wrecks them with some questionable decisions and a silly finale.
Author Russ Ceccola
I have had a strong love for entertainment since I was old enough to play pinball machines and go to the movies. I have been writing professionally since 1986 when I branched out from my position as Entertainment Editor of The Villanovan to write about computer games and video games for lots of different magazines like Commodore Magazine, GAMES and Electronic Games. Rich and I started an online magazine about games called Escapade in 1998, so it's only fitting that we join up once again to write about our other love - movies - as well as games, politics, music, theater and anything else that moves us. Heck, it feels like I'm back to being an Entertainment Editor again.
Contains too many dead spots and occasionally wanders off course like a faulty broom on magical autopilot.
This unusual fantasy mixture of influences and visuals doesn’t lose your focus or interest.
A tedious experience that made me cringe more than applaud or smile.
Leans more toward unintentional comedy than summer blockbuster disaster movie.
Serves up a fun-size treat instead of a full snack.
Embraces chaos as it explores what happens when dinosaurs can no longer be contained.
Skillfully mixes playfulness and humanity for a touching look at motherhood.
Sadly only inherits the bad habits of the worst M. Night Shyamalan films.
This unquestionably fun film would have been so much better with a shift in focus to generate Lando Calrissian: A Star Wars Story.
