Dinosaur-killing in the Jurassic Park franchise has come a long way since its inception, and here's how all six films rank by number of kills.
The Jurassic Park franchise is huge, with tons of humans being viciously killed in the first three films and the three Jurassic World films. As the film demonstrates, chaos ensues every time the park's gates open, with Jurassic Park's various dinosaurs, real and fictional, slaughtering humans who dare to bring them back. Although Dr. Ian Malcolm pointed out how dangerous the idea was in the original Jurassic Park, humans never learned their lesson, and as the series went on, the number of kills in all six films increased. bigger.
Beginning with Steven Spielberg's 1993 masterpiece, Jurassic Park tells the story of a theme park that does the impossible: bring dinosaurs back to life. Throughout the series, the films explore parks opening, closing, rebooting, and even dinosaurs escaping into the real world, demonstrating the inherent dangers that exist when humans mix with nature. Now that the Jurassic World reboot trilogy is over, it's time to return to the world of Jurassic Park and rank each of the six films by their kill counts -- and there are still plenty of dead bodies to add up.
Jurassic Park - 5
Beginning of the Jurassic Park series The start is unremarkable, as the film's five kills may not seem like much compared to some later entries in the series. Although many viewers found the later Jurassic Park films silly due to the outlandish plot required to tell another dinosaur story, the original film remains beloved and many consider it the best in the series, despite its kills Very few times. Unlike some of the later films, in the original Jurassic Park, every kill counts, and every death carries enormous weight. The deaths of characters like Dennis Nedry and Donald Gennaro have become some of the franchise's most iconic moments.
The reason for Jurassic Park's low kill count is a story. Unlike some of the later entries, the titular theme park wasn't open during the Jurassic Park story. Instead, the park's creator, John Hammond, invited a group of experts to the island, and Jurassic Park's Isla Nublar is inhabited only by the main characters and a few staff. Most importantly, the original Jurassic Park set the standard, as it didn't feel obligated to complete the tasks of its predecessors like many later entries.
Jurassic Park III - 6
In the finale of the original trilogy, Jurassic Park III has only one more kill than the original film. Jurassic Park III's six kills are well below the average for the series, but, like the original film, it's the story that makes it. Jurassic Park III follows Dr. Alan Grant as he travels with a wealthy couple to another InGen island. Once there, Grant and his crew were trapped, which meant that for most of Jurassic Park III, only seven of them were around the dinosaurs. There are some deaths early in the movie, adding to the kill count, but Jurassic Park III's kill count is overall very similar to the original.
Jurassic Park: The Lost World - 15
Body count spikes in second film, Jurassic Park: The Lost World, with sequel's kill count jumping to 15. While there were some major character deaths in Jurassic Park: The Lost World, much of this kill count inflation was due to dinosaurs killing the Unknown Soldier. Six InGen hunters are killed throughout the movie, along with a few other unnamed characters, leading many of the humans in the movie to feel like nothing more than dinosaur fodder.
As a sequel to the original Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park: The Lost World likely felt the need to be bigger than the original. While all of the deaths in the original film carry weight, many in the sequel feel like cheap kills. Jurassic Park had three times as many kills, which made Jurassic Park: The Lost World feel like it was trying too hard to shock audiences, which is why the third film lowered the kill count.
Jurassic World - 18
The kill count in the Jurassic World trilogy started to get out of control, with 18 deaths in the first film in the reboot trilogy. Some of them are soldiers, while others are unnamed park guests, meaning the film has the same problem with its kill count as Jurassic Park: The Lost World. In this entry, the Jurassic World theme park finally opens, which means more people than ever are exposed to dinosaurs, resulting in more deaths.
Jurassic World is the first film in the franchise since 2001's Jurassic Park III, and the film's kill count feels like it's making up for lost time. Killing in Jurassic World feels bloodier than its predecessor This movie is scarier than the original trilogy. This, as well as the higher kill count, is partly due to the more frequent use of CGI, as it's much easier to plan complex dino kills with computer-animated dinosaurs than it was when the series used puppets.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 19
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom features caged dinosaurs, sold at auction inside mansions, in a plot so ridiculous that it has to be a Jurassic Park story. The dinosaurs eventually break out and run wild through the home, and the film piles up a pile of 19 human corpses. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was considered by some to be where the franchise jumped the shark, as the ensuing carnage in the film seemed overdone and left audiences feeling empty. By this point, dinosaurs being slain are old news, and the only thing Fallen Kingdom did was double down on it without adding anything new.
Jurassic World: Dominion - 20
The final entry in the Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World: Dominion, had the highest kill count in the series (including the extended edition). However, many of these deaths were caused by humans, including guns and weaponized dinosaurs It appears frequently throughout the film. The kill count is likely to be much higher, though, since humans live alongside dinosaurs in Jurassic World: Dominion. With the exception of Jurassic Park III, the number of kills in the Jurassic Park series increases with each subsequent film, although there is more blood towards the end, but the number of kills per kill The impact is much smaller.
