Action/Thriller: A small group of people must contend with efforts by others to sell and weaponize dinosaurs that have been evacuated off a volcanic island.
It's been several years since the disastrous events at Jurassic World left scores dead and the dinosaur theme park in ruins. While dinosaurs continue to roam the otherwise deserted Isla Nublar, their existence is threatened by the island's erupting volcano, all of which could result in the second extinction event their kind has faced.

Hoping to prevent that from happening is Claire Dearing (BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD) the theme park's former operations manager who now spearheads a small movement -- that also includes, among others, dino veterinarian Zia Rodriguez (DANIELLA PINEDA) and systems operator Franklin Webb (JUSTICE SMITH) -- to save them.

Thus, she's pleased when she's contacted by Eli Mills (RAFE SPALL) who runs a foundation created by Benjamin Lockwood (JAMES CROMWELL), a wealthy but old and physically ailing entrepreneur who lives in a massive estate with his young granddaughter, Maisie (ISABELLA SERMON). He previously worked closely with Jurassic Park's founder before a falling out between them, and is desirous of relocating the dinosaurs from the doomed island to a sanctuary one, and Mills wants to get his hands on as many species as possible, including a particularly intelligent raptor named Blue.

Accordingly, he'd like Claire to convince that raptor's former trainer, Owen Grady (CHRIS PRATT), to help capture the dinosaur, and despite some initial reluctance, he signs on and soon he, Claire, Zia, and Franklin set off for the faraway island.

There, they're greeted by expedition facilitator Ken Wheatley (TED LEVINE) and his armed contingent. But it soon becomes all-too-apparent that things aren't as initially stated and it's eventually revealed that Mills is in cahoots with Mr. Eversol (TOBY JONES) who intends to auction off the dinosaur to wealthy but unsavory bidders, while genetic scientist Dr. Henry Wu (BD WONG) is continuing his work creating modified dinosaurs spliced together from others.

From that point on, Owen and Claire try to rescue the dinosaurs from all of that, all while they, Zia, Franklin, and Maisie must contend with Wu's latest creation, a modified raptor that's bigger, faster and stronger than even Blue, as well as other dinosaurs now housed in Lockwood's estate.

If they're into dinosaurs, are fans of the previous "Jurassic Park/World" movies, or are fans of anyone in the cast they probably will.
For intense sequences of science-fiction violence and peril.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
