Jurassic World: Dominion: Should Kids Watch It?

The curtain seems to fall on what appears to be the conclusion of the dinosaurs through the Jurassic World: Dominion movie.

Many millennial parents grew up watching Jurassic Park with Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neil, and Laura Dern. It’s only perfect that the Jurassic World: Dominion movie closes the franchise by bringing the three back. Also bringing in Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the world of dinosaurs soon meets its conclusion as they realize what the power of genetics has done.

Dinosaurs are extinct for a reason

As ancient creatures, dinosaurs would not fit in the modern-day world. Nobody would want to see a Tyrannosaurus Rex running through the highway. Air travel would be more dangerous with Pterodactyls patrolling the skies. It’s especially not going to be fun when one of the biggest carnivores comes stomping around the plaza and tries to assert their dominance.

Some powers should not be tampered with

We know that genetics holds unimaginable power. From deciding our hair color to the way we learn, the Jurassic World: Dominion movie shows how it has helped others and how it has upset the balance. From using genetics to cure diseases to creating a devastating force to monopolize production, the movie showcases the advances in science that might stimulate kids to take a STEM or science-based course.

A story of parenting in its most primitive form

But besides the dinosaurs having a turf war, it’s still a family movie. Parents dealing with a rebellious teen trying to find out who she is, a mother whose baby gets snatched and will stop at nothing—the story sounds familiar. Jurassic World: Dominion is a movie that parents may want to use to show what they’d be like if someone tried to kidnap them. Maybe not as Chris Pratt but maybe as an angry Tyrannosaurus Rex.

“We need to coexist and survive.”

Many of us loved the Jurassic franchise for years. From when it first started until Jurassic World: Dominion, it was the one action movie that the whole family can agree on. Jeff Goldblum’s trademark humor is still there. And—some of us may finally get the ending we want for both Allan Grant and Ellie Sattler. It’s definitely a good watch for the family. Though, don’t say we didn’t warn you if the kids start collecting dinosaur toys!
