Its funny if you appreciate B-grade Sci-Fi hilariousness

Now, somewhere between the non serious title and the fact that this movie went straight to cable on the SyFy Channel, one certainly should get the idea that we are not dealing with "Gone with the Wind" here, but with a silly monster movie. But there is still a place for that. Sometimes some of us have had it with too many serious things in life and we just want to watch something light and silly, and movies like these fill that urge. The fact that several of us voted to watch it proves the point.

The good points? The rivalry between the two main actresses at times was interesting. The rest of the movie sort of went along with expectations. And by that I mean, the acting and drama did not even get to good, the special effects did not rival Jurassic Park, and no university professor (who is not high) is going to buy the explanation for the larger monsters and how they got that way. The bottom line is, if you are in the mood for something that you know is not serious nor pretends to be serious, this might fill some time for you.

Regrets from me after watching it? Some movies that know they are not the big time sometimes reach cult classic fame with the right amount of silliness and interest such as "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes". I think this movie tried for that category also, but I do not feel it achieved that either. But I give it credit for being honest as to what it really was - a non serious monster movie.

When Titans Clash...and no, I'm not talking about the snakes 'n' gators

The Asylum and SyFy Channel's demented genius strikes again with "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid," the latest in their series of Z-grade monster movies with "Mega" in the title. This one came along with a bit more hype than usual for a SyFy movie, and with good reason, as it pairs up former '80s teen queens Debbie (now Deborah) Gibson and Tiffany, both of whom have both starred in prior Asylum monster mashes ("Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus" for Deb and "Mega Piranha" for Tiff) but are now sharing the screen for the first time... along with an assortment of badly CGI'd monsters, of course. "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid" doesn't even pretend to be a "good" movie. It's schlock, it's an action comedy, it's, it's...oh, hell, you just have to see it to believe it.

The wafer-thin plot is basically thrown in there to get things moving: Debbie is an animal-rights activist who begins the movie by freeing a number of pythons from a testing lab, and unwisely sets them free in the swamps of the Florida Everglades. Eventually said pythons, being non-native species, grow to immense size (though they'll get a whole lot "immense-er" as the film goes on) and have begun decimating the local alligator (and human) population. Tiffany is a park ranger who loses her fiancée' to one of the hungry serpents, and in a grief stricken rage she gets the bright idea to pump the local gators up with steroids so they'll be big enough to combat the python problem. Of course, things go horribly wrong, and soon there are gigantic snakes and alligators the size of 747's rampaging their way out of the swamps and headed for Miami. Tiff and Deb, after an absolutely epic cat fight scene at a swanky party that is totally worth the 20+ year wait, finally have to put their differences aside and work together to stop the scaly threat (with some help from "L.A. Law" alum A Martinez as a reptile expert who's good with a shotgun and can fly an airplane).

As usual for an Asylum film, the special effects are absolutely craptacular (their CGI actually appear to be getting WORSE from film to film, as if they're not even trying to be realistic anymore) and the two leading ladies thankfully don't try to act like this is a serious, Shakespearean production, they just go with the campiness and chew the scenery for all it's worth. Director Mary Lambert (of "Pet Sematery" fame!) keeps the film going at a breakneck pace, so the viewer never has time to get bored or think about how over-the-top ridiculous the whole thing is. At the end, you feel like you've just gotten off a particularly rickety carnival ride.

As Asylum films go, "Mega Piranha" may still be my favorite, but I'd say "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid" has clawed its way to #2 on the list... mainly because of the aforementioned cat fight scene between Tiff and Debbie. Those of us who crushed on both gals during their '80s heyday have been waiting for 20+ years to see'em face off, and that scene was worth the price of admission all by itself! Lovers of "serious" sci-fi films can safely skip 'Mega Python vs. Gatoroid,' but fans of fast, funny, Z-grade films (i.e. people like me) will definitely get a kick out of it. Will Debbie and Tiffany continue their association with The Asylum now that they've completed their masterpiece? We can only hope.

Methinks You All Protest Too Much...

What should you expect from a title such as "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid"?

This is clearly not going to be a poignant exploration of the coming - of-age struggles facing a herpetologist, contrasted with the inner conflict of a widowed before even having the wedding game warden.

This movie is clearly a "Bad SciFi" production (as opposed to "Good SciFi" that does attempt to be cinematically relevant). However, the sheer level of badness makes it an enjoyable watch. How many other movies can give you the opportunity to shout at the screen "Oh, come ON!!!" as many times as MP vs G? Both Tiffany and Debbie Gibson recognize their own shortcomings as actors, and revel in them, as seen in the commercial insets.

Yes, the CGI ranges from bad to awful, but it is all the more fun because of it. Yes, the underlying science is unbelievable, but it hearkens back to the classic "B" movie formula of human actions affecting animals. Yes, you tend to laugh at the on-screen deaths rather than feel loss (Except for Kathryn Joosten, why, oh why did you have to eat Mrs. Landingham?!?!), but the debate afterward of eaten by gator or bitten in half by snake head was worth it. Yes, it is two hours you can't get back in your life, but you knew that when you started watching.

Mega Python vs. Gatoroid is exactly what it appears to be. It makes no pretense that it is a great film, and the viewer should not demand that it tries.
