Good. The closest safe location has been determined to be here the Elkwood detention facility. It has a large underground garage and it's run by a man we can count on to be discrete. I'll put a call into him. You take the vehicles over there and park. I'll be in touch. LaFranco out.

Dinosaurs in jail...
"Jurassic City" should be taken for what it is, which is a cash-in on the popular "Jurassic Park" franchise, complete with the fairly bad CGI dinosaurs and effects, as well as some wooden acting performances.
The story is about a group of young fraternity girls being arrested for driving and driving. They are taken to a correctional Facility that apparently also holds a hardened serial rapist. A militant group brings a load of secret cargo to aforementioned Facility, but as the cargo breaks out, the Facility becomes the hunting grounds for predatory dinosaurs.
A very generic, albeit implausible storyline with enough plot holes to make even a Swiss cheese jealous. And this is complimented by CGI animated dinosaurs that just weren't fully believable. They could have used a bit more money and effort of the CGI effects.
The movie does have a couple of familiar faces on the cast list, just to lure in the audience because the semi-famous actors didn't have that big roles after all. I am, of course, talking about Ray Wise and Vernon Wells here. The overall acting in "Jurassic City" was as to be expected from such a movie; wooden, prehistoric and forgettable.
All in all "Jurassic City" is not overly worth the time and effort, and there are far better movies in the same genre available.
