Violence & Gore

  • A man is dragged inside a cage and killed by a raptor (offscreen). He screams in agony and we see his pained face.
  • A live bull is lowered into a raptor pen by a harness and viciously devoured by the creatures (offscreen). When the harness is pulled back out, some diluted blood is visible for a few seconds.
  • The bloody leg of a goat is seen after the animal is presumably eaten by a T-Rex.
  • A T-Rex knocks a man unconscious, and we see him with a bloody leg injury.(Flesh and Bone are seen)
  • A T-Rex dispatches a small dinosaur, and begins eating it. some flesh is shown dangling from its mouth.
  • A Velociraptor tackles a man and we see it biting his face briefly. We hear the man screaming in pain offscreen and it is implied he is killed brutally by it. Most of the event is covered by plant foliage. Intense.
  • A battle between velociraptors and a T-Rex ensues. The raptors bite it but the T-Rex proceeds to kill them both.


  • Called a triceratopses' poop 'shit'.
  • 'Bitch' is said once, as well as 'damn,' 'shit,' 'ass' is said a few times.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A man smokes constantly throughout the film. Other characters drink occasionally.
  • Alcohol is shown and occasionally consumed.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Malcolm's comment that the Pirates of the Caribbean pirates "don't eat the tourists" may be difficult for children to understand, due to the line relating to cannibalism.
  • The second half of the film is comparatively intense and contains several sequences in which many of the main characters are in danger - mainly from dinosaurs in the park.
  • A scene, about an hour in, where the T-Rex escapes from the habitat includes one on-screen death and an unseen major leg injury. Children are in danger in the scene but come to no major harm.
  • A scene in the final 30 minutes of the film includes two children who are trapped in a kitchen with raptors hunting them.
  • Several of the dinosaurs are scary looking and frightening, especially the Velociraptors' and Dilophosaurus' appearance.
  • People are killed by dinosaurs in very gruesome manners, very intense and somewhat disturbing.

Violence & Gore

  • Gennaro, while hiding in a bathroom block, is eaten by the T-Rex - the dinosaur chomps down on his torso and lifts him into the air, shaking him back and forth like a rag doll. The man's remains are later discovered, though they are off-camera.
  • A Dilophosaurus spits venom into Nedry's eyes which blinds him. The man eventually gets into his car where the dinosaur mauls him to death. The car is shown shaking from the outside, while we hear the dinosaur snarling and the man's screams of agony but we don't see the attack.
  • Tim is electrocuted by a fence and falls from a great height. He appears to be dead but recovers.
  • Ray Arnold's severed arm is found and it's implied that he was devoured by velociraptors. Very graphic.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scene resulting in Nedry's death is suspenseful and intense.
