JURASSIC GAMES REVIEWED
“Jurassic Games” is a prisoner movie by way of dinosaurs. That sounds cool, but this low budget movie keeps all of the action in VR. That means the dodgy CG works because it’s just a giant video game where convicts can die. Eventually, this gets to be way too dodgy. The film then turns into a maze movie and eventually a loose take on The Running Man. Hell, a portion of the finale is about how the sequel will have dinosaurs equipped with lasers. Why? Well, because the premise is cool for 20 minutes and then overstays its welcome. Lasers should fix that.

The Plot Thus Far
The dinomite mash-up of the summer, The Jurassic Games stops onto VOD this June from Uncork’d Entertainment!
Starring Ryan Merriman (Final Destination 3) and Perrey Reeves (”Entourage”), the film imagines a world set in the near future wherein ten Death Row convicts are chosen to compete in The Jurassic Games, the ultimate virtual reality game show that pits its players against dinosaurs and each other. However, there is a catch… If you die in the virtual game, you also die in reality; and for Anthony Tucker (Adam Hampton), survival is his one chance to be reunited with his children after having been wrongfully imprisoned for the murder of his wife. As the devious The Host continues adding improbable challenges, the characters will find the odds stacked against them as only one victor can emerge as winner and reclaim their freedom.
The Jurassic Games is the third film from Emmy Award-winning director Ryan Bellgardt (Gremlin, Army of Frankensteins).
