Breakdown Of Some Of The Stunning CGI Effects In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

December 10, 2018


This is a short video released by Industrial Light & Magic showing some of the very impressive CGI that went into bringing Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to life. But was the movie any good? I still haven't seen it because a friend told me it was a waste of time. "No, your mom wouldn't take you because it's PG-13." Would you believe not a single person responded to my 'pretend to be my guardian' Craigslist ad?

Keep going for the video while I invent injectable espresso.

Thanks to Joseph A, who agrees the graphics from the original Jurassic Park still hold up today.

    I don't find these movies impressive anymore. It's just like a cartoon at this point: sure, you can draw whatever you want, so what? I have the same reaction to the Marvel movies, I don't care about your 8 minute fight scenes where the 'good guys' destroy yet another entire city. Just get back to RDJ and Cumberbatch being snarky.

    I don't see it getting better until AI bots also get involved in writing scripts, then maybe we'll finally get back to witty dialogue and no plot holes as the measure of a great movie.

    Couldn't agree more ..

    Age and surfeit will do that. However, I'll take space wizards and genetically engineered dinosaurs over attempts to find some human interest in that same subject matter.

    I'm not a Brachiosaurus, but if my options are (a) be incinerated or (b) casually wade into the water and take advantage of my 60ft height to not-die, I am going to go with option (b).

    Otherwise, good movie. Looking forward to Jurassic World 3: The Mosasaur Eats Everyone.

    You have a point but I don't think that it would be able to breath if it's rib cage were 30-40 feet underwater. The pressure is great enough that I would be very surprised if it could take a breath in.

  • Munihausen

    Well observed. However, it would still be able to manage to get into the water somewhat, at least an appreciable distance from where the lava / fire would be halted by the sea. The the intended effect was drama, of course, at the expense of suspending disbelief just a bit more. I'm no screenwriter, but showing the dinosaur overtaken by the fire / lava even after getting into the water would have been more tragic; the animal would have been purely helpless, and not somewhat helpless yet sorta-dumb.

  • HugeViking

    It takes me out of it that a dinosaur is dumb lol Speaking of lava overtaking dinosaurs. There were sequences that had dinosaurs have lava poured on their heads and it hardly phased them. You know what was really dumb? That movie. The original is so far beyond any of the sequels.
