Every ‘Jurassic Park’ movie, ranked from worst to best

With dinosaurs and humans now living together following the events of “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” the climax to the “World” trilogy brings back the cast from the previous “Jurassic” movies to set everything straight. Despite the fun nostalgia that Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum bring to the story, the movie itself is a mindless journey from one action sequence to the next. And don’t even get us started on the giant loctus subplot.The “Jurassic Park” franchise is essentially about humans not being able to let go of the past, and the horrifying consequences of what happens when that gets out of control. Let’s call it weaponized nostalgia.

In “Jurassic World,” that concept gets very meta, but not in a cool, self-aware kind of way: 22 years after the events of the first movie, humans have created a dino theme park. Both Jurassic World the park and “Jurassic World” the movie are cash-grabbing, nostalgia-exploiting efforts that made millions of dollars off of humanity’s failure to not learn from our past.

Chris Pratt half-committing to an accent is more genuine than this movie, but we’ll admit we were entertained throughout.Jurassic Park III,” directed by “Captain America: The First Avenger” director Joe Johnston, has some memorable redeeming qualities. The Spinosaurus is a menacing alternative to the overused T. rex and the entire “bird cage” sequence is actually riveting.

But it can never escape the fact that it probably shouldn’t exist in the first place: Sam Neill’s Alan Grant is coerced into returning to a dinosaur island and, shockingly, nothing goes according to plan. The ending is rushed — as if everyone involved in this movie wanted to escape it faster than the characters wanted to get off the island — and the disappointing, terribly CGI’d Spinosaurus vs. T. rex fight was not worth the Rock ’em Sock ’em-style toy we owned growing up. Also, there was a missed opportunity to explore what PTSD could look like for someone who almost got eaten by dinosaurs, but the movie would rather just show Grant hallucinating a velociraptor that shouts his name.
