Just exactly three years after the most successful sequel to the Jurassic Park Part 1 (1993), Jurassic World (2015), the crew and casts of J.A. Bayonne who is a Spanish director successfully made this Jurassic World 2 (2018). It is equally full of shocking cannibal scenes and dinosaurs.

However, this Dinosaurs version of Frankenstein film slowed the pace a bit in contrary to the Jurassic World 1 (2015). It is mainly caused by the Lockwood estate where main drama staged in the entire film after the Act 1. Volcanic island in Costa Rica where the filmmaking never taken place drastically solved and changed the main stage of this franchise series.

The Lockwood estate is equal with Frankenstein's house in any Frankenstein films in the past, and who is the Frankenstein? That must be our Chinese Dr. Henry Wu which is one of main characters in this franchise and only one character which appeared in the most of the films without the part2 and 3.

In this Frankenstein version of Jurassic World, the Frankenstein's monster is not ordinary dinosaur but it is The Indoraptor which is a DNA mixture of Indominus Rex and Blue Raptor. US filmmakers love the most intelligence dinosaur, the Raptor in this franchise. Intelligentsias love intelligent animal is natural and reasonable. And it provides more dramatic alternatives and developments in this franchise. Frankenstein's monster is stupid.

Again, this franchise talks about corporate ethics. Ambitious and immortal capitalists are eaten alive by their creations. You can see this on relationship between Lockwood and his right hand Eli Milles which murders his boss in this story and fires the housekeeper which has good faith in her work.

Family ethics is not so well expressed in this film. Maisie Lockwood and Eli Milles are not an ideal family-like close relationship. Emotional expression on this family relationship is mainly done by Maisie and trapped dinosaurs due to both of them are genetically and artificially created.

And Owen and Clair played the parent role. It still has some distance among them at the final moment of this film. However, it shows us the alternative of family relationship in this new era.

Corporate, Family and Love ethics are well told in this new fairy tale in digital cinema era (1995-).

I actually enjoyed this film and it is worth to buy a ticket for this. It is a true cinema which is eligible to spend time in theatres. It is effectively enough to see it in 2D. This is a feature of well-made blockbuster.
