The first reactions to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom are in… unfortunately, they are mostly in Spanish
I sure wish the eight years I spent in Spanish class taught me something…
After a screening in Madrid last night, here is what people were saying about J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom:
I laughed. I cried. I found myself genuinely scared. All that even though it was in Spanish! In my opinion if that’s not the definition of perfect visual storytelling, I don’t know what is. #FallenKingdom CONGRATS @FilmBayona

That sure sounds encouraging. “Scared” is exactly what I want to feel when I’m in the theater for that horror-cetric 2nd half of the film. Here’s another:
Hours later, after seeing @JurassicWorld #FallenKingdom #ElReinoCaído twice in one day, and still being under embargo even if I don’t write about movies anymore (but I saw it twice in 12 hours, ahem ahem), I can say the 10 min standing ovation at the end was beyond well deserved. pic.twitter.com/FXmVvepOua

A 10 minute standing ovation? Let us not forget early reactions to films are often positive as they are often screened for those who would be the biggest fans… and tend to overact. Remember, Batman V. Superman and even Suicide Squad both had stellar reactions when both screened the first time.
This next one, we’re letting our pals at CinemaBlend translate, though they are just using Google translator themselves:
Va a sonar guarro pero esta noche literalmente he tenido una erección en el Wizink Center viendo la mejor película de la historia dirigida por @FilmBayona #JurassicWorld #ElReinoCaído es una auténtica joya que pasará a formar parte de la historia del cine. pic.twitter.com/hV0Rtf40mb

According to CinemaBlend’s Google translator, that means:
“It’s going to sound like a pig but tonight I’ve literally had an erection at the Wizink Center watching the best film in history directed by @FilmBayona #JurassicWorld #ElReinoCaído is an authentic gem that will become part of the history of cinema.”
Okay! Doesn’t sound like an exact translation, but you get the point.
