While the French director Nicolas Roeg's "Jurassic Park" is one of the most popular movies ever made, only the third installment, "Vivarium" is not considered to be a top notch movie. "Jurassic Park" was considered to be the best of the series and even though the other movies have lesser appeal to movie goers, "Vivarium" is really just a mediocre flick. It is not without its share of memorable scenes but its overall mediocre storyline gets in the way of its greatness. The question that remains for its viewers is whether the online version of this film will be a big hit or not.
The movie's storyline begins with the arrival of two dozen dinosaurs from the past in a steel building. The dinosaurs that arrive at the facility are a result of research on the extinct animal species that lived centuries ago. While visiting the facility, an actor named Keith Henry is killed by the flock of dinosaurs. Unbeknownst to him, he was secretly visited by some visitors, including Dr. Ian Malcolm, a famous paleontologist who wants to create a good documentary on the dinosaurs.
The scientist that murdered Keith Henry was a girl named Jennifer Lawrence. She wanted to become the first female dinosaur hunter to be discovered by someone who truly likes her for her scientific achievements and not simply as the sex symbol. But there is something unusual about Jennifer. Since the death of her partner in the laboratory, she has been seen by the other dinosaurs as being cold and distant.
In fact, all of the dinosaurs believe that Jennifer has been transformed into another species because of her murders. Together, they plan to transform her into a killing machine in order to fight her enemies. The other visitors to the facility and the scientists also want to capture her because she is their potential prize in the upcoming battle.
But Jennifer is not to be stopped and she tries to defeat the other dinosaurs. She uses her connection with the other dinosaurs to give them different powers. She can command them to attack or to run away, she can make them heal and manipulate their minds to find weaknesses in the dinosaurs. She is able to control the weather and stop the clock at any time.
On the other hand, Mr. Simpson, who was the man who brought the dinosaurs to the facility, always remained cold and aloof. He used his skills in research and knowledge of dinosaurs to build a laboratory inside a warehouse that served as his hideout.
A constant battle between the two factions begins, so Mr. Simpson decided to leave the facility. However, once he gets back, the other dinosaurs seem to be overjoyed that he has returned. They see him as a savior who will lead them into the fight against Jennifer. Meanwhile, Jennifer is the new leader of the herd, and she continues to rule over the other dinosaurs.
What makes the movie's plot intriguing is that not everything goes according to plan. Many viewers have criticized the movie for its predictable nature, yet it is still considered a box office hit and is even recognized as one of the best movies ever made.
