"Fallen Kingdom" isn’t dino-myte. It’s dino doo-doo.

The first movie does a better job of everything this one does rendering the second installment redundant – painless but purposeless.
It’s supposed to be a screwball comedy but someone forgot to include the laughs.
A poorly-designed heist leads to a surprisingly lackluster experience, unless you’re on hand primarily for the fun of seeing eight talented actresses interacting.
Despite drawbacks related to the casting of Keanu Reeves, "Siberia" is well-paced, offers instances of tension, and doesn’t cheat at the end.
Retains the edge-of-the-seat and nihilistic qualities of its predecessor, but there are shifts to the overall tone, which is neither as stark nor as ominous.
