Just like Frankenstein, there's an underlying message about the dangers of playing God. But through teamwork, determination, and smarts, the main characters triumph. They also learn and change; Alan learns how to protect/care for the children, and the kids learn to survive in the wild.
Positive Role Models & Representations
Plenty of people and a few innocent animals are eaten by realistic dinos. There's little actual blood and gore, but the scare factor is high, and one gruesome scene involves a severed arm. Suspenseful scenes of the kids being hunted by dinosaurs are particularly intense. Chases, crashes, constant peril.
Infrequent swearing includes two "s--t"s, plus "hell," "crap," "damn," "son of a bitch," "goddamn," "and oh my God."
A few brands are seen -- Barbasol, Ford, Apple. Also plenty of Jurassic Park merchandise available, and there are other movies in the franchise.
Ease of Play
A secondary character smokes regularly. Rare drinking by adults.
