Solid and enjoyable dino movie

Participating on a reality game show, a series of death-row inmates find themselves in the next installment of a popular reality show where they have to survive a series of dinosaur attacks while completing tasks in order to get through the game and win their freedom for their crimes.

This was quite an exciting and enjoyable effort. One of the main selling points for this one is the fact that there's such a unique and original concept for the film. Based around the concept of using a dinosaur-fueled game-show in the future where they take death-row prisoners and pit them in a series of battles not only between each other but the dinosaurs hunting them down all in the name of building up a better show for the viewers. The context of the game itself, struggling to make it through various stages of the game with the dinosaurs from the struggle to get out of the forest where they continually hunt down the various cast-members to the stellar sequence inside the maze where the raptors are running through the area with them, gives this a solid framework leading into the fun of the final half where it gets the final contestants ready by fighting the dinosaurs left in the woods before the final battle between the massive Rex's in the desert which offers up the kind of high-energy fighting and flair of the type of film this really could've been with the fantastic concept of the dinosaurs getting involved with the characters in a way that truly feels as though they're actually interacting with them. Along with the fine gore involved and far more enjoyable CGI than expected, these here are what hold this up over it's few minor flaws. The biggest problem here is the fact that this one never really tackles the high-end concept it really could've gone with. Rather than dealing with the exploits of the game and tackle it as another entry in the long-running tradition that has been involved for a while, this one focuses on a useless and wholly cliche storyline about the group attempting to take it off the air which isn't interesting, interrupts the dinosaur action in the finale and has no real context as for why they're attempting to do that when it's been running for as long as it has. This is made out to be a popular and acceptable feature of society, and nothing about their interruptions is necessary, making this a confusing issue. As well, the cliche use of the contestants fighting amongst themselves instead of dealing with the dinos is a bit of a problem, but otherwise, there isn't much else wrong here.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence and Graphic Language.

Low grade CGI + poor script + dubious acting = The Jurassic Games

The opening scene with the game show host wearing some kind of dinosaur's skull as a helmet sets the tone for what is a truly bad film. Numerous illogical twists in the plot, poorly thought out fight scenes (a 110lb girl hangs a 240lb man by placing a noose around his neck and running the rope over a branch. She weighs HALF of him so how does she haul him off the ground?) had me laughing for the first 30 minutes before coming to my senses and abandoning the film.

Don't waste your time on this. Go for a walk, a run, a drink, a meal or shopping. Anything but this. You'll thank me.

Neither a Jurassic disaster or a Jurassic thrill ride

Was not expecting much from 'The Jurassic Games'. It just sounded terribly derivative to the point of being a blatant rip off, the cover/poster looked cheap and like something you'd find advertised for a SyFy or Asylum film, it had a low rating and the reviews were less than promising. So in all honesty was expecting something terrible.

Seeing 'The Jurassic Games' with an open mind and fairness intended, it turned out to be not near as terrible as expected. At the same time, didn't find it a particularly good film either. Just for the record, am somebody who hates being critical and is more often than not encouraging and aims to be balanced and tries to evaluate rather than completely gushing or bashing, so will always severely object to being called an armchair critic/expert that is thrown around a lot immaturely.

There are positives. There is colour and atmosphere in the setting and some slickness in some of the shots. The music is not over-bearing, variety-less or monotonous, even when not being exactly memorable.

A few of the dinosaurs are fun and have some personality that avoids going too far on the goofiness or scare factor. Some of the acting is better than average and there is the odd thrill.

However, the limited budget shows in particularly the not always very well organised editing and the ropy effects. The dinosaurs don't steal the show as much as they should and their contributions not particularly memorable or well used. The human characters are underwritten and have little development or endearing personality, despite the actors' best efforts.

Also found too much of the dialogue on the wrong side of dumb and cheesy, complete with some soapy moments, and that it didn't flow very well. The film is extremely derivative, interesting premise with far too over-familiar execution that has nothing new. The lack of imagination and suspense also hurts the film, too much evokes cringing and the thrills are sporadic. The direction felt like they were not in control of the material and not at ease with the genre.

Overall, not a disaster, not a thrill side. Instead on the lower side of somewhere in between. 4/10 Bethany Cox
