Well. I have to admit that I am the first one to enjoy a nature runs amok epic. I love big critter movies so when I get 2 big critters I'm in scifi heaven. Is this cheesy? of course, as a cheese lovers pizza. Is it fun...you bettcha! This isn't oscar whoha. This is action, adventure and really bad overacting! But people get ate! Yippee! And lets face it, the final fight sequence is more realistic than Stallone's new Rocky film. Sit back and enjoy. A great way to kill a rainy day.

The moral of this particular movie is that whenever the military gets involved in scientific matters all hell breaks loose.
A group of well-meaning scientists discovers a means of making HUGE food to help end world hunger. Naturally, the EVIL military gets involved, wanting to make HUGE creatures so they start with cobras and komodo dragons (were they planning to drop the BIG creatures on some enemy country?). Naturally, the creatures grow too large and make a snack of everyone they can find. The pinhead general who started this mess, decides to send in a covert team to take care of the problem. Before you can say midnight snack, they're gone. No surprise, this dope then decides to just bomb the island instead. Unfortunately, there happens to be a survivor among the scientists and a group of wacky environmentalists has decided to raid the place with a reporter to expose whatever it is they think the scientists were working on. Along for the ride is their boat driver (Michael Pare). To make certain they can't get off the island, the evil general has the boat bombed. Somehow, murdering the intruders made the most sense.

I'm always happy to watch movies about gigantic man-eating monsters. And this one proved entertaining enough thanks to an amusing performance by Michael Pare. Nothing phased this character; not even watching his boat go up in flames (well, at least he wasn't on it at the time!). The rest of the snacks were stock characters you wouldn't miss. It's daffy, dopey, and dumb but I still enjoyed it.

Another entry in the Sci-Fi channel's series of giant monster movies. The effects in this one are below average, much inferior to KOMODO. There is the usual techno-babble explanation for the existence of these giant predators, and as usual it makes little if any sense. More of the standard "Don't mess with Mother Nature," and "Anything the armed forces are involved in is evil," the message of almost all sci-fi/horror films Hollywood releases. While I enjoyed this more than Sci-Fi's last "Versus", BOA VS PYTHON, it is small comfort. The movie never really delivers on the build-up as it meanders aimlessly to an unsatisfying ending.

No doubt a believable project to a point, but yet as Sci-Fi movies go it was worth the 3 stars. Michael Pare, as usual works with an average script and without a net but still gives the audience its money worth.

SPOILER WARNING

A group of idealistic scientists at a secret facility on a Pacific island experiment with DNA to create super-maize in order to end world hunger. The U.S. military cajoles them to test the enhanced DNA on reptilians instead... You can probably make out the rest of the plot, LOL.

The fun starts when a group of surprisingly good-looking Green activists sneak onto the island to expose the machinations of Mad Science Gone Dangerously Wrong. To cover their tracks, the military bombs the island, while the slightly overgrown reptiles mentioned in the movie title kills and eats both scientists, Greens and each other in the rampage of the century.

Well, almost but not quite.

"Komodo versus Cobra" is actually pretty boring, with over half of the movie not showing any monsters at all?! This is a typical low budget production, a kind of "Jurassic Park" with a depleted special effects budget. But sure, if you like to watch B-movies featuring monsters on a rainy summer day, I suppose this could be an option. Two stars. Or perhaps two-and-a-half, since the plot is almost believable. I mean, what *are* the powers-that-be really doing on Tahiti...?

First, they could have at least tried to make the animals look more alive and less plastic; even inexpensive CGI is better than this.

Then the contents of the movie: Silly, unbelievable. Which even half lousy recon team goes in at night to an unknown island and then without nightvision goggles and constant communication with the extraction team? Who wrote this piece?

This whole movie is full of impossible not even well played and worked out scenes. Waste of money, I think, would not recommend it to anyone.

I like creature features but this is even unbelievable for kids.

The SyFy Channel can come up with some Big creatures & this one is no different. If you like snakes &/or lizards this will please you. Who do you think would win if these two fought? It at least has a plot line & is a movie you can watch without thinking too much! Any Monster movie Sci-Fi fan would enjoy it. Not too much carnage so younger kids can at least watch it without a lot of blood & gore.

An environmentalist group has learned of animal testing being done on a remote island near Bora Bora. They bring a journalist, hire a boat, and set out to investigate with the idea of exposing the unethical treatment of the animals. They get more than they bargained for when they discover that the experiments have created giant Komodo dragons (although only one shows up for the big battle) and a giant cobra.

They soon link up with the lone survivor of the research team and learn the whole story of what is going on. Meanwhile the military is learning about what is going on and are trying to put a lid on things and hush it up. Monsters, civilians, and a military coverup. Put them all together and you just have to sit and see who survives and just what happens to those who don't. The ending is a little better than I was expecting but the title battle was very disappointing (much different than in Boa vs Python where the point was to get one to defeat the other).

This is a semi sequel to Curse of the Komodo. The storyline mostly follows the earlier movie and uses some of the same sets. However, the Komodo lizards look quite different and some of the original cast returns in all-new rolls. This can make things a little confusing at first. Also we now have a giant cobra (don't know how it got on the island). This cobra seems to live underwater. Not only that, sometimes it is in fresh water and sometimes in salt water. This is a silly film. In one scene, one of the characters decides the way to defend against bullet-proof monsters is to carry a length of bamboo. But as silly as it is there is some charm to this. Maybe it lies in anticipation of how bad it will be. Anyway, the title should put you in the right expectation for this film. If you want a silly monster film you could certainly do worse.
