5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my god, I loved this movie!! Very well done! April 4, 2005
So much action, great special effects! And the plotline, so intriguing!!

Um, wait, I thought I was reviewing Matrix Reloaded. Oh sorry, what's this movie?

Oh Rodentz. Well maybe I will keep the 5 stars, and say some good stuff. I thought that guy in the large rat suit was pretty good. And the erector set robotic rat at the beginning was super cool.

I didn't even mind seeing the same scene over and over, I mean if it is good-why not? We saw movie-greatness when we saw people walking through corridors one thousand times-that was very nice.

Just think of the camera work...

And the fuzzy slippers and stuffed animals that were attacking the people, those were pretty scary I thought! I don't think I'm going to open my dresser drawers for a good long time now.

I enjoyed seeing the large rat tail also, that was pure entertainment. Oh my gosh this would've been cool to see on the big screen, just think-an even bigger tail!

I liked this movie so much, I think I'm going to put in in my car, and try out my own amazing pyrotechnics, and I'll smile as my car and the DVD go up in flames. Thank god those two survived. I can't wait for Rodentz-The Rise of the Machines.

Starring Matthew Broderick as the guy in the Rat Suit.

1.0 out of 5 stars WHAT CAN ONE REALLY SAY? April 4, 2004
RODENTZ is almost so bad that its good. Especially the hilarious giant rat that looks like someone running around in a rat suit. Guy Vieg, who plays the professor, looks like he needs a good hit of Pepto Bismol; Aaron Haff, who tries to generate some life into Walter, merely looks dazed and confused. The rest of the cast, oh boy....where did they find them? And notice that in the outdoor scenes, there are no other people or cars around. The director also likes to segue into action scenes by showing the same silhouetted moon and cars going 160 miles on the freeway. A lame excuse for a horror movie that doesn't quite make cult cheez status.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rat Pelletz... February 2, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
After an experimental serum is injected into common rats, they are transformed into CGI-enhanced, super rats. After shredding a cat and a janitor, the RODENTZ are ready for action. One of the scientists at the lab gets a bit too curious, and must be dealt w/ rat-style! Meanwhile, a group of 30yo "teens" are out partying, on their way to a party in their par-tee van. They drop by the laboratory to visit their scientist friend, Walter. Little do they know, these RODENTZ are about to poop all over their party! Shockingly, the fact that not one of these "teens" has a discernible IQ figures directly into their lowered chances of survival. Rule number one should have been: No idiots in the lab! Instead, they are allowed to wander around, getting into trouble. Thankfully, the super-charged RODENTZ happen to love the tender flesh of imbeciles! The problem w/ this movie is that in between the rat-on-human slaughter, things get very, VERY boring. The characters just aren't interesting enough to keep one riveted. Even w/ the addition of squirting blood and female nudity, RODENTZ is a cinematic migraine. Extra points for the giant mega-rat. He's sort of a rat-zilla or franken-rat! This cheeeze is gooey...

1.0 out of 5 stars the giant rat takes the cake, I mean the cheese.. November 1, 2003
Even though I got this DVD at a rock bottom price I felt ripped off. The scariest thing about it is the cover of the DVD. The scenes in which the super rats attack their victims are poorly done, the camera moves rapidly back and forth during these attacks. This is obviously due to how un-graphic the gore factor is. You see blood but it's on a PG-13ish level. We are also to believe that rats climb walls and bite through metal cage wire. Rats climbing walls is an urban legend, when I was younger I bred rats. There were times that I had 30 at one time. These rats were simular in appearance to the ones in this film. Never once did any of them climb the walls. I guess the lab researchers injection was suppose to make them super rodents. After the janitor and one of the researchers are tripped by the rats (yes, tripped) and then eaten, we then realize that the van load of twenty something year old victims are just on time to lend a hand in the rise of the bodycount. The back of the DVD packaging says "has all the makings of your worst rodent nightmare", don't believe that, It's a classic case of false advertising. I don't recommend this film to anyone, it is worse than moldy cheese.

1.0 out of 5 stars The horror...the horror April 19, 2004
"Rodentz," also known as "Altered Species," is one of those commodities with which lovers of bad cinema so often have a love/hate relationship. In fact, the movie could well stand as the poster child for wildly over the top, awful B-budget horror movies. The director and producers made no effort whatsoever to take any of the proceedings seriously, arguably a wise move on their part considering the atrocious levels every aspect of this film achieves. I imagine the film tried to mimic, and probably spoof in the process, every zero budget monster film made from the 1940s on, but I really, REALLY wished it hadn't failed so miserably. Why is it that every "monster" or "creatures gone mad" film released in the last few years has a low budget, bad acting, and horrible pacing? Why, when the idea of raging sharks, mad octopi, and mutated crocodiles crosses somebody's mind in Hollywood does it automatically mean a straight to video release? How many "Shark Attack" films will we have to wade through before someone gets the formula right? Well, I guess I am just as much to blame for the continued release of these terrible pictures as everyone else. After all, I rented "Rodentz" along with millions of other sheep.
"Rodentz" does have a theme: never pour experimental growth hormones in a sink. When weary graduate student Walter dumps a beaker full of the stuff down the drain, hilarity ensues in the form of giant killer rats. Walt should have known better than to do something this stupid, but he's tired after working hours and hours on Professor Irwin's controversial growth experiment.
