Jurassic World 3: Domini. An ambivalent world
“Jurassic World 3: Dominion” begins with a series of news items that update the public on how dinosaurs are now free to be scattered around the world and where it is also presented at the BioSyn megacorporation. This, while serving to contextualize, mostly serves as a summary of the previous film, but also to present two different stories that have much more in common than was initially suggested.
In fact, “Jurassic World 3: Dominion” tells in itself, two parallel and basic stories: that of the new protagonists of the second saga and that of Ellie and Grant, two of the historic Jurassic Park, and then cross. Thus, director Colin Trevorrow, head of the first “Jurassic World”, is carrying out a film of production costs, although it is clear that the result does not go hand in hand with expectations.
Aiming at nostalgia, the film has several references and tributes to Steven Spielberg’s first film in 1993. What’s more, there are some scenes and shots that are practically recreated. Of course, this film has neither the surprise, nor the mystique, nor the meaning of that initial film. While not everyone is the same, they do not have the same dynamism, nor do they count the same things over and over again.
Faced with this latest film, he lives in an ambivalent situation. On the one hand, to feel a certain original mystique of the Jurassic world of Spielberg, which still lasts as long as the prodigious display of visual effects that sets the dinosaurs in motion. But, in turn, this is forced and he thinks he believes that a story that tries to show and plant its own identity, clings to these other people’s worlds. That’s where the tribute is halfway and that identity as well, showing a lack of balance.
Admittedly, “Jurassic World 3: Dominion” has moved to a whole new world, with many different scenarios and concepts that had never been seen before in the Jurassic franchise. But everything remains ambiguous and in this new context, the film is concerned with surprise when it comes to planting the action sequences and in the characters.
What happens is that now the film is trying to turn into an adventure in Indiana Jones where the dinosaurs will no longer be the real threat, gaining more strength the concept of humans as enemies, with, for example , the illegal trafficking of dinosaurs on black markets.
