Jurassic World Dominion has had a worldwide release recently, and the much-anticipated film has received some mixed reviews. The movie got the worst critics score of the whole Jurassic franchise with a 30% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Even ComicBook.com gave a 3.5 out of 5 to the film, terming it “overly long but full of heart.” However, fans look a little more forgiving of the long-lasting franchise. Jurassic World Dominion boasts a 78% audience score but the film’s CinemaScore is an A-. Many fans who did not like the movie took to social media to complain, and one person’s criticism earned a fitting reply from director Colin Trevorrow.
Here’s what Jurassic World Dominion Director Said:
“-Hey, @colintrevorrow … ya made the Rex look weak. Again. Come on now! It’s the face of the franchise. Terrible. The Giga might have been strong, but science proves the Rex was a better predator, and stronger. Very disappointed in your utilization of Rexy,” @AngeDeusRex tweeted. “I understand the feeling. Worth noting the T. Rex had an average lifespan of 28 years, so our Rexy would be near the end of her life in Dominion. Even at that age, she found the strength to rise up and avenge her own death, 65 million years later. Sometimes revenge takes time,” Trevorrow wrote.

T-Rex Has Faced A Lot Of Criticism
While many Jurassic fans did not really like the T-Rex in Dominion, others are quite pleased with the use of practical effects in the film. As a matter of fact, Dominion has more animatronics than the last two films combined. ComicBook.com also had the opportunity to talk to Trevorrow about creating the dinosaurs in the movie.
Watch the trailer below:
“No, I mean, I felt like I had to, and I felt like at a certain point, not only are we honoring Jurassic Park by bringing back these characters, but we’re honoring the way that it was made and how handmade the whole thing was,” Trevorrow explained. “And so, we have more animatronics in this movie than both of our other movies combined. And I really wanted to create a scenario where you couldn’t really tell when it went from digital back to animatronic and it felt so seamless that you just forgot it and accepted that they were real.”
Jurassic World Dominion is out in theaters now.
