Who is the true hero of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom? Is it Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire Dearing, a onetime cog in Simon Masrani's ill-advised corporate machine-turned-activist for once-extinct creatures on the verge of another untimely death? Is it Chris Pratt's Owen Grady, a freewheeling animal behaviorist who trains velociraptors not to be weapons of war but healthy animals living their best lives? Is it Jeff Goldblum's Dr. Ian Malcolm, who delivers the title line of the movie? Or is it the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex, whose deafening roar inspires terror in the hearts of all who hear it? While it might seem like a dinosaur as deadly as the T. rex is a heroic figure, the iconic creature may just surprise you with its turn in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
