Sure you could focus on the negatives, like the complete lack of acting ability by the main character, or plot holes like "why would a multi-ton dinosaur be rattling the bathroom door knob ? " or The fact the the sound effects drown out the dialogue , but I prefer to focus on the positive. Shooting locations for one . This movie had some interesting shooting locations . But this movie is about dinosaurs, and that is where it shines . This movie chose to invest in state of the art dinosaurs that look so sorta real that you actually almost believe !
In a world where ALL dinosaurs are crappy CGI , ( have you seen the new Jurassic park trailer ? ) it was nice to see realish looking puppets and heads of life size creatures. That was the best part . Realism.
Plus , you have Lorenzo lamas in several minutes of the movie! I don't know twhy but he was in there dammit ! So my advice is don't focus on the "acting" or even the "writing"...
To be honest, I was bored one night and picked this because it was a freebie on Amazon Prime, so I wasn't expecting much. To my surprise, this movie was pretty entertaining. The storyline and special effects were better than what you get fro the Syfy channel. The characters are caricatures and the acting is a bit over the top, but it all gels together in a fun, campy way.
The film has a formula plot. Mad scientist breeds hungry raptor, raptors escape, beging eating everyone in sight. We have a stranded band (gay rapper, Goth girl and party girl), stranded college guys (nerd, stud and fat stoner) and tough local girl who dreams of leaving town. They band together to try to survive till help arrives.
Probably good to watch with a couple of friends so you could all have fun making snarky comments.
Okay, I will have to admit it, the DVD-case's wrap-around art IS m-i-s-l-e-a-d-i-n-g: 1.) The T-rex is LARGER. 2.) The Raptors're SMALLER. 3.) The artist's rendition of Lorenzo Lamas and Jana Mashonee isn't recognizable. What confused the overwhelming majority of reviewers is that not only did the "co-star" Lorenzo Lamas NOT appear in any of the scenes W=I=T=H Jana Mashonee, Lorenzo (Fernando Lamas's [1915-1982] son), he is only used in a "wrap-around" capacity... he is in a few of the 88-minute movie's openning and closing, scenes. He is only seen in, no more than, 8-minutes of this movie, max.
At least when Mel Ferer's (1917-2008) son, [The Stand; RoboCop] is IN a movie, HE is IN a movie...
This movie is what people-in-the know call a horror-farce. That is, it's a parody OF, say,...
