The movie started out ok, but once they get into the auditorium to 'meet' the dinosaurs it completely falls apart. As usual, there is a stupid whiny teenage girl that you hope gets taken down as soon as she opens here mouth, or plugs in her headphones. Surprisingly, they forgot to cast the genius shy younger brother. Treat Williams looks lost, and Ronny Cox WAY overacts.
I don't judge these movies by "regular" movie standards. I like these kind of movies for what they are - escapist fun. So I'm not comparing the special effects against a Jurassic Park movie. There just isn't an excuse for releasing this waste of time. Save your money on this piece of junk.
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.
