‘Jurassic World Dominion’ is now available to bring home

Category: Blu-ray's and DVD's

The final film (as of now – who knows if they will change their minds in the future?) in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World Dominion, is now available on Blu-ray, 4K, DVD and digital. The Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD, as well as digital, have several bonus features.

Viewers get the choice to view the theatrical version of the movie or an extended version. The extended version includes about 10 minutes of additional scenes.

Bringing together the actors from the original Jurassic Park (1993) – Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and BD Wong, and reuniting Bryce Dallas Howard with Chris Pratt from the past film, the story is a bit whacky (as they all are) however the visual effects are amazing. With six films in the franchise, it seems audiences are getting tired of these stories as the reviews from critics and audiences are not as favorable as they were for the earlier films.

With Maisie Lockwood (Isabella Sermon) living with Owen (Pratt) and Claire (Howard), her very existence is in jeopardy, as is Blue’s baby dinosaur Beta. In this new world the dinosaurs are everywhere trying to live alongside humans and other animals on earth. But things are not going great. And with more scientists trying to generate medicinal and other things from the dinosaurs, hunting, poaching, and danger is abundant. Now genetically engineered locusts are destroying farmland. It looks ominous for the humans.

The best thing about the Blu-ray is not the movie but the additional features. Viewers see just how far technology has come since the original film. Visual effects are amazing and learning how the filmmakers designed the dinosaurs from the inside out is remarkable. With feathers, muscles, and skin textures, these dinosaurs are as realistic as the real ones – most likely.

A fun bonus looks at the little Beta dinosaur. The filmmakers created puppets as well as animatronic versions of the little girl to help with the scenes. It is easier to act and react to an animatronic dinosaur than a cardboard one. Plus, Pratt needed a puppet to carry to make it realistic.

There are many more bonus features looking at the creation of the film with the filmmakers and actors. These bonus features are noteworthy, especially for those who are interested in looking at the making of the film and the way the dinosaurs were created.

Jurassic World Domination wraps up the franchise (hopefully) with an ending that will satisfy fans. It is rated PF-13 for intense sequences of action, some violence, and language.
