"...A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction..." - Galatians 6:7-8, NIV

Moviegoers have seen it before. Man creates a beast it cannot control. Be it curiosity or greed, creators of our kind usually end up with much more than they bargained. That storyline is age-old, but the go-to monster movie took a big turn when audiences were first invited to Jurassic Park back in 1993. Ever since, and especially lately, this sci-fi/action franchise has been gobbling up ticket sales.

Universal Pictures' sequel to its 2015 blockbuster, Jurassic World, takes fans into a Fallen Kingdom, one overtaken by man-resurrected, man-mauling dinosaurs.

Co-stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard reprise their roles. Pratt's character, raptor trainer Owen Grady, reluctantly returns to Isla Nublar with former park operations manager Claire Dearing (Howard), on a mission to save some of the dinosaurs trapped on the island before its ready-to-blow volcano explodes. What they discover sets off a chain of events that has worldwide consequences.

Caution is advised. Rated PG-13 for "intense sequences of science-fiction violence and peril", Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is not appropriate for children. Scary-looking predator dinosaurs kill at random, people are eaten, and a limb is ripped off at close range. Foul language is also used intermittently.

Original trilogy star Jeff Goldblum bookends the movie offering some cautionary statements as he testifies at a government hearing. He says let the beasts die. So, why not? Well, everyone seeking to preserve these genetically-motified creations has his/her own motive. If you can stomach the PG-13 content and the movie's prediticability, it is interesting to see where each choice leads.

In the end, we reap what we sow.
