Product Description

A genetic experiment goes awry when a new cell regeneration formula causes rats to become aggressive and one to grow to 50 times its normal size.

From the Back Cover

Walter and Professor Irwin believe their green miracle formula is the key to regeneration of damaged cells. But late one night, Walter starts to notice a change in some of the rats they used as their test subjects. Not only are the rats now extremely aggressive, but one has grown to 50 times its normal size, and it wants them for lunch. Don't miss this classic creature feature with all the makings of your worst rodent nightmare.

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.

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...

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.

I was not expecting this movie to be over-the-top action with phenomenal special effects and memorable characters and in a way it was not, but surprisingly it is not a bad movie.

The story was okay; it is about these rats that are being experimented on for science and one of the rats--named Brenda--gets injected with an unusual dosage of hormone growth. The rats are exposed to this green goo and establish a knack to kill and feed off victims who mostly make loud sounds in the environment.

The introduction may appear to start off very slow to build up the atmosphere and the setting, but after some time the premise for the movie stuck well. It focuses on two separate stories between a doctor and the smart student, and a group of his friends that were always getting in trouble with alcohol and amorous situations later in the film. It was clear on who was going to survive and who was going to die.

For the special effects, there wasn't a lot in this film; there were violent shakes of the camera to simulate the violent movement of the mice. There were close-up shots of the bigger mice biting their victims and the face of the biggest rat in the movie.

Probably the best thing about this movie is the climax at the end. I do not want to ruin the climax as it could be a spoiler for those who may watch it, but after watching this whole movie all the way through I have to say the climax is the best thing to see. Also, don't expect another movie related to mice after this because it ends on a cliffhanger.

Overall, guilty pleasure and underestimated premise and more suspense than anticipated.

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.
