The goal was to find a way back home, and Mills and Koa had to find their way through a dangerous and unpredictable landscape while fighting dinosaurs and other animals. Even though the generic orchestral score tries to make people think otherwise, the fact that everything is predictable takes away any tension or suspense. The music just didn’t go with what was going on on screen. To its credit, the story gets a little more intense toward the end, but by then it was too little, too late. Aside from story beats and tropes that had been done before, the dialogue was so boring that it may have been the last straw. Those hoping that the dinosaurs will be the movie’s saving grace will also be let down, since they are just as bland and generic as the rest of the movie. If they were thought of at all, they seemed like an afterthought. It’s clear that there’s a better movie in here somewhere, but it feels like a lot of good stuff was cut out. In the end, it seems like nothing more than a skeleton of what it could have been.
In the end, Driver’s okay performance as Mills was the best thing about 65, even though he didn’t have much to work with. Still, he makes the most of the small amount of room he had to work with by using his charm, but that only gets him so far. He is by far the most interesting thing about the movie and will make people sit down. But he’s done much better in a lot of other better movies. He and Greenblatt had good chemistry, but Greenblatt didn’t do much more than move the plot forward because her character was even less developed than Driver’s Mills’. Visit o2tvmovies for free.
