8 Things That Made No Sense About Jurassic World Dominion

The release of Jurassic World Dominion has been met with significant excitement from fans, with the film doing major business at the box office. It also marks the end of the Jurassic World trilogy and the six-film arc of the Jurassic Park series, which makes its events significant. However, there are several questions that were left unanswered because of how difficult it was to make sense of them.

Ranging from issues such as Ian Malcolm’s out-of-character association with Biosyn to antagonist Lewis Dodgson’s ludicrous plans that were easy to expose, Jurassic World Dominion will have left many scratching their heads in confusion. It’s worth looking back at the nonsensical aspects to get a recap of the major events that deserve an explanation.


Why Did Ian Malcolm Work For Biosyn?

There’s an evil authority figure in every Jurassic Park movie made, with Dodgson taking on this role for Jurassic World Dominion. Ian Malcolm was famously against such figures in power and the very idea of ​​dinosaurs freely roaming the Earth, both of which he contradicted by joining Biosyn.

Ian learned of Biosyn’s evil activities after he was hired, which doesn’t explain why he joined such a company that didn’t align with his values ​​and beliefs. Considering how cool he was when he was fired, it’s how Ian was coaxed strange into becoming an employee when he wasn’t even passionate about it.

Why Was Biosyn’s Security So Lax?

The adventures of the original trio of protagonists at Biosyn was a Jurassic Park reference in Jurassic World since the layout of the place was similar to InGen. What didn’t make sense was how such a highly secretive place could have security so lax that Alan and Ellie simply satered into their restricted locations.

Moreover, Dodgson and his crew even witness Alan and Ellie trespassing, yet didn’t have the manpower to capture them despite Dodgson having such a massive facility at his disposal. The heroes had no difficulties moving from one place to another and simply outran anyone after them with minimal issues.

Why Was Dodgson’s Locust Side Project So Grand In Scale?

One of the things Jurassic World does better than Jurassic Park is the large-scale effects that drive home the point that the dangers here are bigger than before. Dodgson commissioned the use of the locusts to destroy crops that didn’t have Biosyn seeds, which he claimed was just a side project.

Dodgson’s plans were lackluster at best because it was easy to track Biosyn’s evil activities – it became obvious to people like Ellie that locusts were harming Biosyn seed crops. If Dodgson wasn’t serious about this, it didn’t make sense why his side project would be so destructive and easy to trace back to him.

Why Does The Government Allow Carnivorous Dinosaurs To Co-Exist With Humans?

One of the improvements Jurassic World Dominion made over Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was showing the effects of the dinosaurs around the world. While fans got to see how dinosaurs had integrated with humans and animals, it didn’t make sense why carnivores lived so openly near to civilization.

A Pteranodon family was shown nesting on a skyscraper during the film, which appears to be extremely dangerous. It was established that governments and companies like Biosyn can easily capture these creatures, meaning the Pteranodons were actually allowed to live where they were. However, the fact that they could easily eat humans makes it hard to believe that the government was fine with letting these dangerous animals roam free.

How Did The Dinosaurs Spread All Around The World?

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom showed that certain buyers purchased dinosaurs at the Lockwood mansion auction and made off with them. Meanwhile, Maisie released many others into the wild, which then became free in the human world. Despite that, there’s no explanation for why there are so many dinosaurs in Jurassic World Dominion.

The movie depicted dinosaurs all around the world and it shouldn’t be possible since the number of released dinosaurs wasn’t nearly that many. In addition, the auctioned dinosaurs should still be in captivity, yet a lot of the captured species were free by Jurassic World Dominion without explanation.

Why Did Soyona Santos Target Owen Instead Of Barry With The Raptors?

Soyona Santos’ involvement in the plot ended in Malta when she was arrested by Barry Sembène. Her last act was to sic the trained raptors on Owen, which chased after him all the way to the airplane runway until he successfully escaped – Soyona’s decision is inherently flawed.

After all, it would have made a lot more sense for her to target Barry instead of Owen since he the former was the one who had her at gunpoint. Soyona’s arrest meant she had no need to be loyal to Dodgson anymore and didn’t need to get Owen out of the way. Her decision to go for petty vengeance over an easy way to escape is baffling and was left unresolved.

How Was Kayla So Conveniently Prepared To Rescue Claire?


Kayla was reluctant to help Claire when the latter asked for her help in the underground dinosaur market. She ended up changing her mind and took Claire and Owen on her plane to save Maisie. That noble turn came out of the blue, especially since Kayla was at the right place when she had no reason to be.

Claire had been chased around by a raptor on the rooftops of Malta and precariously dangled off a balcony when Kayla was surprisingly standing below. The area was a distance away from the black market, which means Kayla shouldn’t have been there. Moreover, Kayla just happened to have the keys to the truck that Claire fell on, which is another convenient plot point that’s hard to believe.

Why Didn’t Henry Wu Face The Consequences Of His Actions?

Henry Wu is indirectly the biggest villain in the Jurassic World series, having created the Indominus Rex, the Indorapter, and the locusts that ravaged the world’s crops. He was at the center of all the global catastrophes yet faced no justice at the end of Jurassic World Dominion.

Wu was last seen freely roaming a field where he released the cured locusts. While he may have redeemed his evil actions, Wu was guilty nonetheless and should have been brought to court. It’s strange that Alan, Ellie, and Ian were shown testifying against Biosyn in the conclusion but the company’s chief geneticist went away scot-free.
