but the multi-looping paradox time travel makes up for it.
The scientist sends his nurse girl friend and his brother
back to before the Asteroid hit Yucatan, where large predatory
lizards roamed free. Of 21 sent back only four live to return
and most of the rescue mission are lost as well.
A large dinosaur makes it through the time gate / wormhole
into downtown LA. I would have liked this to take place during the day,
but since the special effects are minimal,
they used the night to hide their faults...
and a happy ending results.
Let us hope they don't make a sequel.
Briefly, the film is about a team of Navy Seals from present day that goes on a search and rescue mission back to the Cretaceous to find a group that had been sent there in the 1940's. They arrive, have some rough patches, find the survivors, and bring them back, except that by mistake a giant meat eating dinosaur back with them.
Despite some of the dinosaurs being unrealistic and the mediocre special effects, the movie managed to capture, in my opinion, what it must have been like to live in those times. The place was extremely inhospitable to mammalian life, which is why most did not evolve larger than the size of a rat until after the dinosaurs died. To live in the Cretaceous was to be in constant danger, never knowing when one dinosaur or the other was going to come up and snap you into its jaws.
Also, most of the actors did an amazing job of making you believe, for example, that they had been trapped in prehistoric times for six years, or showing real emotion in the scenes where they were about to separate from loved ones. The best part of the movie is the realistic dialogue. The script writer did an excellent job.
Michael Gross plays Dr. Frank Reno, an impossibly old scientist who participated in the Philadelphia Experiment and sent a team of time travelers, led by his own brother, all the way back to 70,000,000 B.C. in 1949. (The only reason the movie is called 100 Million B.C. because it's a knock-off of the film 10,000 BC, and The Asylum likes to play tricks with potential naïve viewers.) Unable to get the team home, he has spent decades perfecting the technology so he can try again. When some distinctive cave paintings are discovered, he knows both where and when to find the long-lost team. Off he goes, along with a team of Navy Seals, back to the Cretaceous Period, but their rescue mission is only half of the story. The trouble with time portals, you see, is that it makes for a two-way street, permitting anything from the other side to make the jump, as well. I think you can see where this is going.
While the CGI effects of the dinosaurs and the destruction they wreak are pretty weak, and the story itself even weaker, I was still entertained by 100 Billion B.C. The film isn't anywhere near as good as other Asylum monster films such as Mega Piranha or Mega Shark vs.Read more ›
