A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Beware of dinosaur hunts.
Positive Role Models
Nobody really acts in a positive manner here.
There's a strong female lead character who more than holds her own and doesn't put up with any sexist and aggressive behavior from the men around her. Diverse races and ethnicities in the different characters getting attacked and eaten by dinosaurs.

Violence & Scariness
Bloody CGI killings of humans, either by dinosaurs or other humans. Dinosaurs eat humans, stomp humans, rip their limbs off, stick their talons into them before flying away with them. Humans fight each other with punches, kicks, guns, knives. The humans fight back against the dinosaurs with grenades, rocket launchers, assault weaponry. One of the tourists is caught with a smartphone, and since that's against regulations, his nose is broken by the leader of the dinosaur hunt. One of the men on the hunt makes aggressive sexual advances to the only woman in the group, but is rebuffed. Characters shown bloodied and scratched after fighting with assorted species of CGI dinosaurs.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Kissing. Sexual innuendo, as one of the men in the dinosaur hunting tour group grabs his crotch and calls it "the second biggest thing on Earth" (second only to brontosauruses). While growing impatient with waiting on two captive dinosaurs to mate, the villain demands to know when they'll be "spilling baby batter."

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Jurassic Hunt is an action movie (and mockbuster capitalizing on the Jurassic Park brand) in which a group of hunters and mercenaries on a dinosaur hunting trip find themselves trapped in the preserve. There's frequent action movie violence, typically but not always involving CGI dinosaurs who eat, stomp, and claw their human enemies. Characters get eaten, stomped, their throats slashed, their limbs ripped off. Not ones to go down easy, the humans retaliate with a large arsenal of assault weaponry, grenades, rocket launchers. Sometimes, the humans fight each other, getting into hand-to-hand combat or pulling or firing weaponry at each other. The only woman in the group endures aggressive and unwanted sexual advances and sexual innuendo involving knives. One of the soldiers talks about how he wants to hunt brontosauruses because they were the biggest thing on Earth, then grabs his crotch while talking about how he has the "second biggest thing on Earth." While watching genetically-altered dinosaurs trying to mate, a villain yells at the dinosaur keeper, demanding that the dinosaurs start "spilling baby batter." Constant profanity, including "f--k" and "motherf--ker." Cigar smoking. Booze drinking from flasks, bottles.

Is It Any Good?
This is a horrific menagerie of bad CGI dinosaurs, stereotypical characters, and hilariously awful dialogue that makes Sharknado look like a David Mamet film. Jurassic Hunt is clearly hoping that audiences will believe this title is somehow related to the Jurassic Park series. They'll realize very quickly that it's not.
The story makes very little sense, no matter how willing you may be to suspend your disbelief. "All I ever wanted was a warrior's death" is an actual quote from this movie, a chance for the viewer to get the backstory of Valentine, a former Navy Seal who has now accepted the challenge of going on a dinosaur hunt. It's not even the worst line in the movie. Not even close. But it's indicative of the laziness that permeates this awful movie.
