That was awesome. I was excited as fuck when they brought back the Jurassic Park Franchise. 1-3 were all awesome, but with them bringing it back expectation had to be tempered with the new Jurassic Worlds. 1 was okay. The kids were annoying but the story was good, dinosaurs all awesome. It feels kinda hard to make a bad dinosaur movie because that always gets the blood going….and then Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom came around. JK. Its not that I thought it was awful, I just didn’t like it. We already have a Dinosaur being removed from the island story line that turns into a Dinosaur auction story line, that then decided to tell you that they were cloning humans all the while there’s a story line of a genetically modified Dinosaur that has a built in laser targeting system. That clone shit is kinda weird and not necessary and I find it very insulting now as I look through IMDB and see the clone girl is listed on the cast and BD Wong isn’t. But what ever. I’m past that movie now after seeing Battle At Big Rock. I’m gonna deal with the fact that they contrived the Fallen Kingdom Plot just to bring the dinosaurs off Isla Nublar so they can cause havoc in the US. I’m fine with it.
Now as for this short film itself. Awesome. Perfect short and sweet full of action, full of emotion. Great acting, both the humans and the dinosaurs. It kinda changed directions when the focus of the dinosaurs came to the humans but what this was at first was a CLASSIC internet video “Battle of Kruger.”
Just this view of wild untamed animals through the eyes of tourist. Little baby gets preyed on only to find an even bigger animal pops out and gang up on the predator. Awesome. Now that the dinosaurs have invaded human civilization its kind of a blank slate on what can happen. As far as the other previous 4 movies before fallen kingdom all they needed to do to survive is get off the island. Well now the dinosaurs are at your doorstep and that’s an awesome premise i can’t wait to see from Jurassic World 3 (minus the clone girl.)
p.s- I feel like also the short was a great mix of diversity and tolerance of people. Mixed adopted family coming together. Red neck imparting wisdom on a young black girl that ends up saving their lives as opposed to him calling her racist names. Maybe I’m reading too much into that, what ever, we got dinosaurs.
