Bayona ("The Impossible") does manage to inject a spark of life into the proceedings, the new setting still can't quite overcome a mediocre script and a few fairly silly plot developments. Dumb yet genuinely thrilling in bursts, this is decent popcorn entertainment, even if it never fully lives up to its greater potential.
