Editorial Reviews

It was a groundbreaking device designed to glimpse alternate universes and government commissioned by a brilliant physicist. But the machine malfunctioned on its first presentation, transporting a group of observers into a nightmarish new dimension. The team quickly must use ingenuity and courage to outwit, outplay and outlast the native man-eating creatures of this bizarre new world while doing their best to repair the damaged machine. Even if they stay alive, without a working transport, they may never make it back home.

Format:DVD
In approaching a SyFy channel original creature feature, there are only so many resultant options available in terms of entertainment value: (1) The movie can be unrelentingly and painfully bad, (2) it can be so delightfully horrendous that it's camp nirvana, or (3) it can be genuinely frightening or effective. Faithful fans of the network's slate of films will realize that most fall within the first category while only a miniscule few hit that third category. No, as a true SyFy fan, I generally hope for that second classification--cheesy goodness that makes bad movie magic! "Ferocious Planet" is a film that actually blurs the line a bit and the results are surprisingly solid. Strong creature conception and execution distinguish this rather silly tale which retains many amusingly bad moments without ever veering all the way into camp. And this semi-serious tone amidst the lunacy actually works. Mind you, I'm still rating this 4-stars adjusted on the bad movie scale--but if you seek out this type of goofy low budget entertainment, this Planet might be worth a look.

The film jumps off right away as a group of Washington bigwigs (led with robust gusto by John Rhys-Davies) visiting a scientific lab to witness the most important experiment of all time! After two seconds of explanatory junk science mumbo jumbo, a fusion generator malfunctions sending the cast into an alternate dimension. Don't you hate it when that happens? The new world looks surprisingly like a small stretch of forest (no big budget sets here), but the group finds out they are not alone. A dinosaur type inhabitant provides some challenges to our unlikely travelers and luckily there are plenty of extraneous cast members for it to systematically destroy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than most in the Maneater Series September 22, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I picked this up because I'm a fan of Joe Flanigan ("Stargate: Atlantis"), but wasn't expecting much. Most of the movies in the Maneater series are claustrophobic looking (like they were filmed entirely on the same acre of land) or the special effects are really cheap. This was better, however. The monster does look kind of thin, but the movie reminds you more of an old "Twilight Zone" episode than a cheap direct-to-video movie. Flanigan is fun, there's some nice humor, and the conclusion is a little open ended, making you wonder what lie ahead. If they had spent a little more money on the CGI, it would have been quite a nice little movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! Sequel!! April 10, 2011
By Kathy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Yes, I know we've seen this all before. But, this time it was good. Joe was fantastic in this movie. He came across as a guy whose military training and experience kicked in to help save the day. The movie did not take itself too seriously. That helped to make it both dramatic and funny at the same time. It was good to see Joe again doing action/adventure. There needs to be a sequel because this movie was a step above what Syfy movies usually are. A person could sit back and enjoy the show, despite the blood and gore. There really wasn't much of that but some might not like it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad...could have been much much better.. December 5, 2011
Format:DVD
My hope went into high gear when i saw all the posibilities for this one and then wheni actually saw where they choose to go, and once i saw the first few shots of the monster i knew basically what was the movie gonna offer me....it ain't much.

After looking at this movie a second time i have this to say:
Monster looks much better farther in the movie than the first shots.
First shots feels more like a back projection.
They could have used some extra cgi creatures....even small ones....but the
movie budget woul'nt let them.
Actors/actresses are not that bad...the budget limitation and limited effects probably affected them overhall.
Some effects shots were repeated to make sure they got their money's worth, but
as a viewer we dont need to see a shot twice.

I could go on and on...so bottom line...its watchable but its a bare bone
monster movie that could have been much better.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK
Some of the special effects could have been better. The story was interesting. The monsters should have more work to make it a little more reasonable.

It's a pretty cool, entertaining and funny B-movie. I actually enjoyed it very much! The ending is not clear, though.

Even though the character development failed to present any real depth and stayed very close, and predictably so, to their stereotypes, this comes off as a solid sci-fi offering. Read more
