Jurassic World Dominion | 2022 | PG-13 | – 1.6.5

content-ratingsWhy is “Jurassic World Dominion” rated PG-13? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “intense sequences of action, some violence and language.” The evaluation includes a few kissing scenes, many scenes of violent encounters between humans and dinosaurs with a few that end in death with some blood shown, many scenes of people being chased by dinosaurs and getting away with difficulty, a few arguments, discussions of genetics and humans interfering with nature, and at least 1 F-word and other strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.

In the latest of the Jurassic Park saga, humans are having to learn how to coexist with dinosaurs, and when things get out of hand a dinosaur trainer (Chris Pratt) and a paleontologist (Sam Neill) try to save the day. Also with Bryce Dallas Howard, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, DeWanda Wise, Mamoudou Athie, Isabella Sermon, Campbell Scott, BD Wong and Omar Sy. Directed by Colin Trevorrow. [Running Time: 2:26]

Jurassic World Dominion SEX/NUDITY 1

 A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage and the top of her bra and a woman wears low-cut tops that reveal cleavage in several scenes.

Jurassic World Dominion VIOLENCE/GORE 6

 – Many armed people shoot at each other after money is exchanged for a deal, one man runs away and another man chases him, snipers shoot and a truck’s tire is blown out tipping the vehicle and dumping its cargo, which is dinosaurs in cages; several other cages open and many dinosaurs prowl the area and snap at people and one dinosaur picks up a man and eats him (we see him snapped up and he disappears in the dinosaur’s mouth, without blood shown), and a man falls into a fire and he screams and flops on the ground while in flames; a man is pinned on the ground by two chained dinosaurs as they chew on his arms as he screams, another dinosaur approaches and attacks him and he goes silent (presumably having died). An airplane is attacked midair by a flying dinosaur that shatters the windshield, cuts the hull of the plane open and the engines burst into flames; the plane crashes into a frozen body of water (we see the two occupants OK later); a third passenger ejects before it crashes and we see her being attacked by flying dinosaurs as she parachutes (we see her with bloody cuts on her cheek as she dangles from a tree). A man and woman walk across a frozen body of water as a dinosaur approaches them, the ice cracks under its weight, the dinosaur dives underwater and swims around, under the people on the surface, they run, the man falls underwater and the dinosaur speeds toward him with its mouth open and the man is pulled out at the last moment and he and the woman run to a walkway and close themselves in an elevator just as the dinosaur catches up to them. People are targeted with a red light used to mark them for a dinosaur to attack; one man hides and dinosaur snaps at him but cannot reach him, and another man is chased by a few dinosaurs as he speeds away on a motorcycle, drives down a flight of stairs, and through narrow roads where a couple of dinosaurs are struck by other vehicles. A man on a motorcycle chases a plane as it speeds toward take off, the man jumps the bike onto the back of the plane and the bike falls off the back knocking a dinosaur off and into a body of water below as the plane takes off.
 A man walks through a dark tunnel where he is randomly sprayed with blasts of steam; he sees a dinosaur in front of him and runs away to get into a train car, three dinosaurs enter the car with him, screech and spit goo on his face, he falls to the floor and the scene cuts away as we hear the man scream (he is presumably killed by the dinosaurs). A woman tasers a dinosaur and it collapses, revives and chases her as she jumps out a window, across rooftops and eventually crashes onto a truck that speeds away with her in the back trying to keep the dinosaur away from her using a metal pole.
 A dinosaur walks past a woman in a forest and swats a deer out of the way; a large dinosaur later sniffs the dead deer, noses it, picks it up and tries to eat it. A large dinosaur about to eat a dead deer is approached by another large dinosaur and they fight; one bites the other’s face, it screeches, roars, and walks away leaving the other dinosaur to eat the deer. A woman crawls on the floor of a forest as a large dinosaur follows her; she goes into a body of water, submerges and the dinosaur lingers over the surface of the water and roars loudly, and then walks away (the woman surfaces and swims away). A man, a woman and a teen girl walk through a dark abandoned mine after a train they were in stops running; the man climbs a ladder and falls off when a dinosaur at the top lunges at him (he falls to the ground and hits his head) many other dinosaurs lunge at them, roar and chase them to a locked gate where they try to hold them off until the gate is opened. A woman is surrounded by several dinosaurs, one moves close to her face and spreads a flap as it screeches and a man grabs it around the throat while another woman tasers it and it runs away. Several people hide behind an overturned truck as a large dinosaur approaches and follows them as they try to get to a building; a teen girl climbs up a ladder and the dinosaur bites a safety cage around her as she screams, a man on the ground distracts the dinosaur with a burning sharp object that he throws into the dinosaur’s mouth, it thrashes and bites the walkway where the people are walking and they stumble, they get inside and the dinosaur crashes through a large window, pulls a cable that a woman is holding and she slides toward the dinosaur as a man stabs the dinosaur with a knife, another woman tasers it in the eye and it eventually walks away. Two large dinosaurs fight as several people try to get to a helicopter without being seen; one dinosaur falls unconscious and the other is approached by a third smaller dinosaur that fights with it; the unconscious dinosaur revives and it shoves the other dinosaur into the sharp claws of the smaller dinosaur killing it (we see the claws pierce the dinosaur and it roars and falls motionless).
 A ship in the Bering Straits pulls up a trap filled with fish and a giant dinosaur lunges out of the water, bites the trap and tips the ship over (we hear people onboard yelling). A large dinosaur tips over a trailer and we hear people inside screaming as a voice-over talks about the dinosaurs becoming violent when they are hungry. Two dinosaurs sneak up on a rabbit in a forest, a wolf lunges out of the brush to get the rabbit and one dinosaur jumps on the wolf (we hear a fight and the wolf howls but we do not see the results). A dinosaur drops a dead fox on the ground and a young dinosaur pulls on it until the dinosaur steps in a trap and is pulled up into the trees; the adult dinosaur screeches, runs after the small dinosaur and is struck by a truck and knocked over a ridge (we see the small dinosaur in a cage later).
 Two young children tend to a flock of chickens and are swarmed by many large locusts that chase them into a barn; the children lock the door and one locust breaks through as they scream. A man and a woman are swarmed by large locusts in a containment area and they struggle to get out (we see their clothing torn when they finally do). Two women are attacked by locusts and they use an axe and a pole to hit them out of the air. A containment area filled with many large locusts is set on fire and the locusts flit around in flames, break out through the glass top of the containment area and swarm through the air outside setting a forest on fire and dropping on dinosaurs and a truck as it drives through the area, it teeters at a ridge and tumbles down rolling several times (the passengers are uninjured).
 Two women fight, one has a knife and the other has a taser, and one woman is zapped with the taser and falls to the floor. A teen girl is stopped by a woman on a bridge and we see her taken away as a man throws the bicycle she was riding over the bridge; another man watches and runs home to get a gun. A man carries a gun in a few scenes. Men on horseback watch a teen girl chopping wood and seem threatening.
 A dinosaur screeches at a man and he holds his hand up and tells it to back up which it does and it runs away. Small dinosaurs chase a young girl as she runs away and cries. A large dinosaur walks across a road and a car swerves to avoid hitting it and drives off the road (we do not see the result). Two pterodactyls nest on top of a high-rise building in a city. A giant dinosaur walks through a factory area and it follows a man holding a flare on the back of a truck that leads it to safety, followed by another dinosaur. A dinosaur snatches a piece of toast from a teen girl’s hand and she is startled. Many dinosaurs are shown in a wildlife relocation facility in containment. We hear about an underground market for dinosaurs and see people with a variety of dinosaurs held in cages and a couple of dinosaurs chained in a ring fighting with people standing around presumably betting on the winner. A secure laboratory area is shown in several scenes.
 Two people break into a cattle company at night and we see dinosaurs in restraints and one sick dinosaur in a cage (it is referred to as an illegal breeding facility); the people wheel the cage out of the building as a van crashes through a gate and they speed away chased by others in a truck and they shoot at the people in the van until the truck is tipped over by a large dinosaur. A man shoots a young dinosaur with a sedative dart and we see it in a backpack on the man’s back sedated. Men on horseback chase a herd of dinosaurs, one is lassoed and it pulls the rider off his horse and over a ledge before settling down (no injuries are seen). People are shown being treated for cuts and bruises.
 An announcement is made that there is an emergency evacuation order for an island and dinosaurs move toward a containment area. A man talks about dinosaurs going straight for the throat of their prey and a woman and a teen girl become squeamish. A man argues with another man in a couple of scenes. A woman describes the possibility of toxic gas and bats being in an abandoned mine as along with a man and a teen girl, she walks through. A woman warns another woman, “If you mess with the wrong people here, you disappear.” A man talks about unforeseen consequences occurring because of human interference with nature. People argue about global famine. People predict the collapse of the food chain because of a threatening situation. A woman and a teen girl argue in a few scenes. A teen girl says, “I’m not a real person.” People talk about genetic research and harnessing genetic power. People talk about cloning and a human clone. People talk about a woman dying from a genetic disorder.

 – Let go of regret; what matters is what we do in the present.


Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
