Jack Horner stated in a interview, that via very different methods than depicted in the Jurassic Park movies, bioengineering dinosaurs may become a reality in the world someday Basically, the idea would be reverse engineer birds to make them more like dinosaurs, "Of course birds are dinosaurs. so we just need to fix them so they look a little more like a dinosaur...Dinosaurs had long tails, arms, and hands, and through evolution they've lost their tails, and their arms and hands have turned into wings. Additionally, their whole snout has changed from the velociraptor-look to the bird-like beak morphology In Jurassic Park, the scientists use preserved dino DNA from mosquitos. We've since come to learn that idea isn't feasible, but making a "Chickensoraus," as Horner calls it, is very much within reach. Horner says, "just recently, within the last few weeks, were able to transform the head of a bird back to actually reverse-engineer the bird's snout back into a dinosaur-like snout.", Horner further explained how this could all work. "Basically what we do is we go into an embryo that's just beginning to form, and use some genetic markers to sort of identify when certain genes turn on and when they turn off. And by determining when certain genes turn on, we can sort of figure out how a tail begins to develop. And we want to fix that gene so it doesn't stop the tail from growing...We can make a bird with teeth, and we can change its mouth. And actually the wings and hands are not as difficult. We're pretty sure we can do that soon. The tail is the biggest project. But on the other hand, we have been able to do some things recently that have given us hope that it won't take too long."

When the gyrosphere plummets off the cliff, that's a long ways down and while the gyrosphere will probably survive it, with the vertical deceleration of the humans inside, Owen has no practical chance of surviving this. It doesn't help that being a human on foot, he wouldn't be able to jump far enough to get clear of the cliff. See more »
So bland. Tonally uneven. No memorable character moments. Awful.
Its as much of a non-film as I can remember. Somehow, Spielberg made a cup of water and the sound of footsteps far more suspenseful and engaging than anything in this movie. The dinosaurs are just sort of... there. Same goes for Chris Pratt, who features in scenes but only mildly forwarding the story with a few rescues or whatever. There are some cringe-worthy moments - firing a gun underwater to break glass, everyone being submersed but having perfect hair/makeup after, a horribly acted young girl who has the most shoe-horned and pointless subplot ever (as well as a nonsensical, cringe inducing climactic line). So much of the story makes no sense, a hybrid dino is basically produced and supposedly trained to follow laser sighting overnight. Yet has no buildup, suspense or point whatsoever. The whole thing is stranger than a David Lynch movie. Its like a string of bland cutscenes to a dull videogame.
