“Jurassic Games” was released in 2018 for the SYFY channel and was directed by Ryan Bellgardt. I’ve seen good dinosaur movies and I’ve seen crappy dinosaur movies. I loved everything about this movie. Especially the dinosaurs. I don’t know why other people panned it. The interaction was decent. The special effects were good. The action was good. As far a characterization is concerned. They are death row inmates. They don’t have any character. They just kill people.
I fear that anyone who had a problem with the dinosaurs has only seen the “Jurassic Park” movies. Not all dinosaur movies are made by Spielberg. The budget for this film was $10,000,000. The budget for “Jurassic Park” was $63,000,000. And that was in 1993. The budget for “Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom” was $170,000,000. “Jurassic Games” had an animation department of 3 people and visual effects department of 10 people. “Fallen Kingdom” had an animation department of 27 people and a visual effects department of 712 people. No wonder the Jurassic movies look better. It’s not fair to compare the two. As far as I’m concerned, they did a wonderful job with the budget and staff they had.
If you want dinosaurs this movie has them. Lots of them.
