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.”
