It reportedly did well in Korea and Mexico. We take a look at what the reviewers had to say about the highly anticipated movie in this article.
‘Overstuffed’ to ‘Underwhelming’ – Jurassic World Dominion Misses Perfect Landing For Franchise Conclusion
Jazz Tangcay of Variety had this to say about the film is a big, “roaring fun adventure. The dinosaurs are bigger and better than ever. It’s non-stop Dinosaur action. And Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Sam Neill’s return hit the nostalgic spots. I just love them.”
Film critic, Courtney Howard wasn’t impressed, she wrote: “BAD. It ignores the premise it should’ve had from the start, instead synthetically engineering 2 entirely different, uninteresting & hollow stories that it struggles to connect. Some effects look polished, some ropey. Worst of the franchise.”
Here is what others had to say about the film:
GOOD NEWS: #JurassicWorldDominion is my favorite film of the new Jurassic trilogy. It’s stuffed w/ thrilling dinosaur encounters & lots more Jeff Goldblum, but it’s also got a great balance of creepy & inventive scenarios w/ some choice nods to what came before. A solid finale. pic.twitter.com/G6bMCDUecL

#JurassicWorldDominion rocks an excellent mix of practical & digital effects. Dinos look GREAT. Dimetrodon scene is … right up my alley. Bryce Dallas Howard runs away with the movie — & new trilogy for that matter. Claire experiences one heck of an arc & Howard soars with it. pic.twitter.com/5qWYkddi9e

It brings me no joy to report that #JurassicWorldDominion is a MASSIVE disappointment. While the film does feature some incredible dinosaur sequences and it is great to see the original cast back on the big screen, the film fails to deliver on what the previous films promise. pic.twitter.com/AsGoqMsrSf

#JurassicWorldDominion is a jumbled nightmare. Sloppy, contrived, enervating. A butt-numbing 147 minutes of bland, shrieky mayhem that arouses no fear, wonderment, excitement. A grab-bag of generic action setpieces huddling together for warmth. Eches of Emmerich's GODZILLA.
