Editorial Reviews

Somewhere on the churning fury of the South China Sea, an elite team of Naval commandoes led by Hacket (Lorenzo Lamas of RENEGADE) launches a daring assault on notorious international terrorist Azir (Steven Bauer of SCARFACE). But on a nearby uninhabited atoll, both sides – including a tough-but-beautiful CIA agent (Hayley DuMond) – will soon come face-to-face with the ultimate horde of prehistoric horror: They are fast, cunning, and are supposed to have been extinct for over 100 million years. Most of all, they are hungry. Now what began as a hostage rescue mission will become a savage fight for survival where trained killers must battle their way up the food chain against the barbaric violence of mankind, the explosive forces of nature, and the blood-crazed carnivores of RAPTOR ISLAND.

really the title of my review says it all.

This film depicts the delicate balance of environmental issues with a gentle hand that was lacking in the Jurassic Park series. Whereas those films settled on simply showing dinosaurs as mindless killing machines bent on destruction of the human race, Raptor Island reminds us that humans can also be mindless killing machines bent on destruction of not only their own race, but their whole world. This movie, no this FILM, goes to great lengths to really illustrate the battle between man and his environment and does so in a way that is more compelling than anything presented in Inconvenient Truth. In addition to touching on subjects of man vs. nature, the film is so bold as to also explore the battle of man vs himself. Indeed, this film goes so far as to take an in depth look at terrorism in the post 9/11 age. It does so in a way that is not sensationalist or jingoistic, but one that is brutall honest.

Why Lorenzo Lamas hasn't won an Oscar Lifetime achievement award for this movie is beyond me. Every scene he is in is riveting beyond belief. Chuck Norris does not hold a candle to Lorenzo Lamas.

The special effects are top notch. I don't understand how this has been overlooked for the past 6 years, while Avatar has garnered all sorts of critical praise. Obviously the critics are in James Cameron's pockets.

Plus, you will learn that the South Pacific Islands look strikingly similar to New Hampshire. I had absolutely no idea and I appreciate the learning experience.

I must say that I didn't have high expectations for this movie. The first red flag was that Anchor Bay distributed this movie on DVD. God bless Anchor Bay, they release (and re-release) some of the oddest and off the cuff movies out there. Now many times odd and off the cuff can also be cheesy and corny. The second red flag is this movie was made for the Sci-Fi Channel, equating it to a direct to video movie without the bad language and nudity. Yet this movie ended up being pretty good, for what it was, cheesy and corny.

With this taken into consideration, let's enter "Raptor Island". This movie made in 2004 stars Lorenzo Lamas (in every B movie in l990s and television show Renegade) and Steven Bauer (Scarface). Well the plot is very simple, even though the movie could have been ten minutes shorter. Lorenzo Lamas is leading a Special Forces team to capture Steven Bauer and crew. The latter is a terrorist who is dealing with illegal weapons (sadly he doesn't have that much screen time). Well this chase lands the terrorists and the SF team on an island, where raptors live. To add to the mix is an undercover C.I.A. agent played by Hayley DuMond (cute) and a rouge tyrannosaurus-rex. Oh and just my personal observation, none of the characters seemed too shocked that there were prehistoric creatures living on this island.

As noted prior this is a made for TV movie, so no nudity or really bad language. However that didn't bother me, this movie was pretty much non-stop action in the sense that something was always going on. As for the dialogue, I must confess that some of it made me laugh very hard. For instance, there is a scene where Lorenzo says "Blood doesn't lie". That phrase might not make much sense in this review, but the way it is delivered in the film, HILARIAOUS!!!

This is one of those movies that is so bad that it can be entertaining. It has unbelievably bad continuity, plot, acting, characters, and all that "other stuff" that makes a movie good. There are some really interesting effects and dinosaurs, but it is used so horribly that at times it seems almost cartoonish.

I will attempt to summarize the movie: special forces are given the mission of rescuing UN - never mind all of that - the good guys end up fighting the bad guys while trapped on a cold, tropical, super-radioactive island, full of dinosaurs, especially raptors, in Chinese territory.

A lot of dinosaurs get shot, how I'm not sure. Through the entire movie the audience is left wondering if they were all going to accidentally shoot themselves. The guns are used as bullet sprayers, the guns are endlessly cocked, ninety-some percent of the bullets hit anything but a dinosaur, and I don't think that one dinosaur is shot when it actually comes on the scene (they have to wait for the dinosaurs to eat someone first, or something).

In the movie, none of the characters can do these things: swim, move out of harm's way, aim a gun, use their grenades, duck or hide (or otherwise take cover when necessary), tell another character critical information (at least not when they need it), etc. The bad guy is indestructible, even though everything bad seems to happen to him (wounded, irradiated, trapped with dinosaurs, lava flows, chased by special forces, etc). The dinosaurs are pretty indestructible too, even coming back to life sometimes.

Nothing in the plot makes sense. I dare you to try to make sense out of it. Overall there is a story there that sort of comes together (which I summarized earlier).
