Enjoyable enough movie, but some pretty gaping plot holes.
1: Why did they take all of those massive animals off the island when they had DNA samples? There's no way it was cheap to do that, and it seems pointless.
They wanted live animals for quick collateral, so it was a get-rich-quick scheme in essence.
2: How the hell can the Indoraptor do a pullup? The thing should not have that much upper body strength.
We're in b-movie monster territory with the Indoraptor. I mean, the damn thing's bulletproof.
3: The whole releasing the Dinos in the wild was actively nonsensical. They're all individual animals of their species, so it's functionally extinct already. They play no role in the ecosystem, and most of them are active threats to human life. Any sane government is going to recapture them or kill them, and even if they were left in nature they couldn't survive or reproduce. Meanwhile, they still should have all of the DNA, so the individual animals dying in captivity is better than letting them loose to run around killing people.
Movie logic, I suppose. Aside from 'feeling good', a lot of people think you only need 2 survivors to have a viable population afterward. No idea why they might think that!
But honestly, you missed the biggest plot hole: Isla Sorna. There's more than one island with Dinosaurs on it. I mean, there could be some expanded detail about what happened there (I recall something that some of the base animals for Jurassic World were taken from there), but I doubt that volcano can affect more than one island.

Reviewing movies is a lot like Paleontology: The Evidence is there...but no one seems to agree upon it.
