While its ranking within the larger franchise may be tenuous, there’s no denying that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom packed a punch. Director J.A. Bayona may have been working with a somewhat lackluster script featuring admittedly 2-dimensional characters, but he fully utilized every horror troupe at his disposal, even infusing the family-friendly thriller with some serious emotional trauma. It’s not The Exorcist, but it sure punches Kong: Skull Island in the balls!
