First Jurassic World Dominion reactions are all over the place, from 'fun adventure' to 'one big pile of s---'

There are two main camps. One avouches the new film is their favorite of the most recent Jurassic World trilogy. The other? May we turn your attention to a certain GIF io9’s Germain Lussier used to express his feelings: “That’s one big pile of s—.”

Dominion picks up years after the events of 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom at a time when dinosaurs are now trying to live out in the world alongside humans. Directed by Colin Trevorrow, the film unites the stars of both Jurassic trilogies: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum from Jurassic Park; and Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard from Jurassic World.

Early reactions such as these aren’t always the most accurate Geiger counter for potential radioactive box-office bombs, and the critical consensus will more than likely change as more people see the film. But even now, there’s much to digest.

“#jurassicworlddominion is a big, roaring fun adventure,” tweeted Variety editor Jazz Tangcay. “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.”
