very low budget, horrible acting and became very annoying because the script, the acting and the terrible effects created a ludicrous situation where you are wondering if one of say "what?, shouldn't I do something different?" Really bad, but we watched it through and tried to wipe it from our minds...

There is nothing like an Asylum film where there is a disaster and a family is trying to save itself. In this formulaic disaster, Gabe, the fireman (Treat Williams) takes his estranged daughter (Jillian Rose Reed) to an impromptu dinosaur petting zoo. It seems those wonderful folks at Geneti-Sharp have created their own Jurassic Park in their office building. Things go oops. We witness scenes already done in "Jurassic Park" as people play hide and seek with a meat eater.

The film is complete with blood splatter and an exploding CG helicopter. May work as a film for the 9-tween. Adults can pass on this one.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

3 1/2 Stars: On The Bad Movie SyFy Scale
1 1/2 Stars: If You're Looking For A Real Movie

No one can say that the film production company called The Asylum aren't consistent. The premiere brand in spectacularly bad entertainment, The Asylum works in conjunction with the SyFy Channel to fill its slate of original movie productions. From a technical standpoint, these movies don't boast high production values or A-list actors. Instead, they aspire to a silliness that can either be refreshingly entertaining or just plain excruciating. The movies are bad, to be sure, but some can rise to the level of Bad Movie Magic. For my money, "Age of Dinosaurs" is so terrifically awful that it kept me fitfully amused throughout its brief running time. In my estimation, the moderate success of this treat is a fully committed cast, a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor, and a escalating sense of over-the-top mayhem. If you're a fan of bad movie cheese, this is a nice appetizer. If, however, this is not your particular genre interest--you will truly detest this picture with every fiber of your being. On the SyFy movie scale, this is a solid 3 1/2 stars for its inspired lunacy. On any other scale, it would be considerably less!

Part of my enthusiasm for "Age of Dinosaurs" is that it is really several different movies and each works well enough on its own. At the beginning, we meet our hero (Treat Williams) and his annoying daughter (Awkward's Jillian Rose Reed). First let me say that I'm a fan of Williams. Emerging as a major actor in the early eighties with stellar performances in "Hair" and "Prince of the City," he has lately been a solid TV presence with great work like "Everwood." Sadly, this is not exactly a great step for him!

Jurassic Park (the original) was the best dinosaur movie ever made. JP II was pretty good - still a fun romp. But JP III - well, they abandoned things like scientific accuracy (pteranodons with teeth?) and believable story, just to cash in on the name. I thought it was the worst dinosaur movie yet.

Until "Age of Dinosaurs."

Wow -- they made this in 2013? Really? Well, there were a few giveaways, like iPhones and the fact that the LAPD Crown Victorias were joined by some Dodge Chargers. But you'd have to really be weird, like me, to notice that.

The special effects certainly wouldn't clue you in. Sure, some were CGI, and some of those even moved smoothly. The fleshy wattles on the giant (bigger than T.rex size!) Ceratosaurus were a nice touch. But they looked like CGI -- like the helicopters -- they just didn't seem to be "in the scene." Probably subtle things like lighting angle and coloration, depth of focus, environment effects like shadows, dust, footprints being off...

And some of them were kind suspiciously rubbery-looking. Especially some of the half-size Carnotaurs (to make up for the double-size Ceratosaur, I guess), which were the main villains of the flick, playing the role of the raptors from Jurassic Park. (Copied down to tapping claws on the floor.)

Speaking of Jurassic Park - wow. That movie was made 20 years before, and looks -- well, 20 years newer. This move was made last year, but the effects would be spectacular - in something like One Million Years BC.

Helicopters. Did I mention the helicopters? Lots of them, yet I bet they didn't spend a cent on chopper rentals. Every bit of helicopter footage looked like either a model or a CGI model.

I've seen much worse, much worse.
Rudimentary at best, this knockoff borrows (steals) from many other films. The plot is a bit sketchy, something to do with bio-technology and medicine. How they got dinosaurs from that is anyone's guess, apparently the loopy CEO (Ronny Cox) thought they were contained/tamed/a novelty for sporting events, maybe even pets! They thought it would be cool to regenerate "meat eaters" first. What could go wrong? Enter a dopey dad (Treat Williams) who thought his daughter would like to attend the dinosaurs coming out party. What could go wrong? They had over 100 dinosaurs to be distributed (party favors?). The trouble starts when Larry breaks out. (Isn't that cute, they named them.) What follows is a lot of atrocious dialog, general all-purpose mayhem, chomping, stomping....... The movie fares best when it doesn't feature any of the characters. When the dinosaurs stampede it's sublime. When the cast try to `act' it's almost painful to watch. They either try too hard or not hard enough, the worst of the lot being Jullian Rose Reed (playing the daughter with a watered down version of an "attitude").
Everything about this movie feels as though they made it up on the spot; no rehearsals, no second thoughts. There are a lot of elements that are just lame.
This was a crap shoot but I liked it for that and the unapologetic way in which they presented it. (I'm sure Ronny Cox and Treat Williams were happy to take the money and run. What does desperation pay these days?)

Fortunately, I have a special place for movies like this in my collection. There's no such thing as having too many.
