Science and nature can't be controlled, and animals shouldn't be treated as predictable and easy to manipulate. There's an ethical line between science and cruelty. Teamwork, bravery, determination, and compassion are important when dealing with animals -- and other people.
Positive Role Models & Representations
Several jump-worthy, potentially terrifying scenes of sustained tension and peril. More than once it seems like even a child will be killed. Dozens of people die (including key supporting characters); they're eaten (whole or in pieces), dismembered, ripped to shreds (sometimes in graphic ways), trampled, burned in a volcanic explosion. Most characters are injured in some way. One dinosaur is especially frightening; it tracks and attempts to kill a young girl. Bloody fights between dinosaurs, which slash, hunt, kill one another. Also weapons-based and close-combat violence between humans: tranquilizer guns, automatic guns, hand-to-hand fighting. A mercenary likes to steal the teeth of dinosaurs he's caught. Parts of the movie show animal/dinosaur cruelty.
Flirting/banter; a climactic kiss.
