Original novel by Late Aussie John Brosnan/Harry Adam Knight was
superior (sort of...)

"By Christopher Miller
Dr. Jane Tiptree, a brilliant geneticist who feels that Dinosaurs need
never die and with government funding arranges to bring back dinosaurs
using chicken eggs (because some moron says dinosaurs are giant
chickens). One of her new and improved carnosaurs escapes and runs amok
in a small town while his big brother is waiting to be set loose on the
city. Unless the truth can be unleashed, it could be a new dawn for
dinosaurs driving mammals to extinction."

Unfortunately, it was a plot from a B movie franchise. But, wow, JP was
a B movie franchise with a huge budget.
