Wondering if Jurassic World: Dominion is ok for kids? The conclusion to this franchise may not be the best, but if you like dinosaurs, then it’s more of the same. I was here for the nostalgia, and I got some, as well as a bit of muddled mess. But it was still a lot of fun. Here’s what parents need to know in this Jurassic World: Dominion Parents Guide.
Jurassic World Dominion Parents Guide
Two generations collide in the Jurassic conclusion. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are joined by originals Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill in Jurassic World: Dominion. Jurassic World: Dominion takes place four years after Isla Nublar has been destroyed. Dinosaurs now live–and hunt–alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures.
Why is Jurassic World: Dominion Rated PG-13?
Jurassic World: Dominion is rated PG-13 for Language, Intense Sequences of Action, and Some Violence which means some material may not be suitable for children.
Parents need to know that Jurassic World Dominion is not super kid friendly and has many jump scares, but is your typical dinosaurs eat humans story.
There is some profanity in Jurassic World Dominion including words like sh*t, a**, a**hole, bastard, damn, and words of Diety including g-ddammit.
There are some kisses but nothing too passionate. A character talks about a dog humping his leg.
Violence is moderate with weapons used like knives, guns, and tranquilizer guns. While there’s not a ton of blood and gore, there are scenes of dinosaurs attacking and eating humans and other dinosaurs. This is Jurassic World.
Some characters get chased by bugs which is kinda gross.
Is Jurassic World: Dominion Kid Friendly?
At almost 2 1/2 hours long, Jurassic World Dominion may be too long for some kids. Also if they don’t like jump scares or human-eating dinosaurs, then they should probably skip this one.
Is Jurassic World Dominion Appropriate for Kids Under 13?
Graphics and CGI have obviously improved over the years, so images are more realistic than back in the Jurassic Park days. This could scare younger children who may have seen the first film. However, if kids have seen the other Jurassic World films, then they should be ok with this one, too. I would recommend Jurassic World: Dominion for kids 12 and up. Younger would be fine, too, if they’re comfortable with the intense scenes.
I didn’t hate Jurassic World: Dominion. Is that high praise? Maybe not, but after so many films in the franchise, I was ready for it to end, and this isn’t a bad conclusion. I was happy they brought back Dern, Goldblum, and Neill. It’s a summer popcorn flick. One of the reasons I liked going to the movies in the first place – seeing beasts and monsters on the big screen that lived in my imagination. It’s far from perfect, but it proved its point.
