This is the sixth film in a franchise that began with 1993’s Jurassic Park, which saw a corporation use ancient DNA to bring back dinosaurs for a theme park – with disastrous results. This time, dinosaurs now at large, global corporation Biosyn exploits genetic technology for gain – again with disastrous results!

It’s hard not to admire the special effects used to bring these animals to life on screen. And much could be said about the accuracy of various species, some making their debut alongside old favourites. But I want to reflect on particular lines and quotes which reveal the film’s philosophy and its obvious alignment with old-earth evolutionism.
