Jurassic Park Franchise Films, From Best to Worst

The sixth instalment in the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World franchise from Universal Pictures, the Jurassic World movies are ranked from worst to greatest. Naturally, Jurassic Park was one of several hits that Steven Spielberg, the most commercially successful director in history, has produced over his lengthy directing career. The great franchise was launched in 1993 when the incredibly cool and lifelike dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, combined with unforgettable personalities like Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), caught the world's attention and pocketbooks. Even while many would contend that none of Spielberg's Jurassic Park sequels have been able to match the grandeur of the original, it's sometimes impossible. It is difficult to follow up a film as wonderful as Jurassic Park, so it is acceptable for sequels to aim to be suitable complements rather than attempts to surpass it. The other Jurassic Park films have generally succeeded in doing that.

1 - Jurassic Park (1993)

Jurassic Park I

When Jurassic Park was released in 1993, its special effects were absolutely innovative. They have practically affected decades' worth of films, yet even today, they still surpass many contemporary ones.  A portion of it has to do with how the film blended massive practical effects with computer-generated imagery. Because it appears on screen as a huge, animatronic puppet, viewers don't need to suspend their imagination very much to imagine how terrible the Tyrannosaurus Rex is. A number of the other dinosaurs in the film have this trait. There is a reason why people still hold this movie in such high regard today. It's the stuff of moviemaking magic and cinematic history.

2 - The Lost World Jurassic Park II part (1997)

The Lost World Jurassic Park

Steven Spielberg is the film's director, and it is evident in Jurassic Park: The Lost World. It featured the debut of numerous new dinosaurs that would later become series mainstays, and the best Compsognathus scene in the franchise. The images and effects are frequently astounding. Although it occasionally goes a little crazy, the script was razor-sharp and really allowed Jeff Goldblum to unleash his typical wit. This is without a doubt the funniest Jurassic movie. The John Williams score is also terrific and distinctive enough from the first Jurassic Park to avoid feeling repetitive. Not to mention the T. rex attack on the cliffside trailer, possibly the scariest scene in the entire Jurassic franchise. Or the T.rex that tore through San Diego at the conclusion of the movie, which was the only instance of a dinosaur causing havoc in the outside world prior to Dominion. Even if The Lost World didn't quite reach the same heights as the original Jurassic Park, it was nevertheless a huge hit in its own right.

3 - Jurassic World (2015)

Jurassic World

The thing that sets Jurassic World apart from its two prequels is that it seems like it was made in an effort to engage with the original Jurassic Park trilogy. Jurassic World has a strong sense of readiness to take on the mantle of the earlier films, from the grand introduction to the park to the reflections on the perils of careless genetic engineering to the exciting midnight Velociraptor hunt.

4 - Jurassic World Dominion (2022)

Jurassic World Dominion Movie

The Jurassic Park series and the Jurassic World half of the franchise both got off to a promising start but fell short with Jurassic World: Dominion. Numerous characters from Jurassic Park return in the sequel to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, joining Owen, Claire, and the rest of the Jurassic World team for one last dinosaur-filled adventure. Unfortunately, Dominion was a touch too ambitious, and this attitude was evident in the conflicting reactions that Jurassic Park fans and critics received online. Jurassic World: Dominion isn't a bad movie; it just didn't live up to expectations as the celebration and end of a franchise that spanned more than three decades.

5 - Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

The issue with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is that it doesn't feel at all like a Jurassic movie. Both the inclusion of Benjamin Lockwell (James Cromwell), a former colleague of John Hammond who we're supposed to think was crucial to the construction of the original Jurassic Park despite never being addressed in the previous four films, and the entire human cloning subplot seem out of place. Fallen Kingdom has many shortcomings, but it is at least brave, surprising, and ambitious. And by concluding with the liberation of dinosaurs into the wider world, it did pave the way for the significantly superior Jurassic World Dominion.

6 - Jurassic Park III (2001)

Jurassic Park III

The issue with Jurassic Park III was that it didn't really have much to say. Every single other movie in the series strikes a careful balance between telling a realistic,horrific tale of surviving a dinosaur catastrophe and making a statement on the foolishness of human advancement. There is no background story or subtext in Jurassic Park III; the movie is solely about the adrenaline thrill.
