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.

"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.
