Of reptiles and men

This movie was just a completely different movie than I had imagined. And it's all thanks to the "uniqueness" of the characters, if I may call it that.

Here we have the stereotypical, bossy, Green Arrow impersonator, driven waitress who works for a stereotypical sleazy, fat, greasy, inappropriate, degrading politician/restaurant owner/toy store owner/car dealer who decides to use his power in a town of THREE, count 'em, THREE people. We also have the old farmer who just so happens to be a mad scientist/ doting pet owner on his farm of dinosaurs who can somehow miraculously use up ALL of the gas in town...until morning when apparently the town revitalizes EVERYTHING, including the girl's and guys' broken down cars. How, you ask? I'm guessing magic!

We also get, in this treasure trove of diversity, a gay BLACK guy. Yes, you read that right. A gay, jazz singing black guy with his two backstage singers. One is a dumb, blonde slut who LOVES everything and the other is the very embodiment of all things emo-teen- psychopathic. I honestly don't know where they come up with that! It's brilliant! And then we have the dorky-yet-cute and wimpy college dude forced onto a ski trip (through the desert) by his skirt chasing Nimrod buddies (one is hot, one could lay off the chips).

And the dinosaurs are characters of themselves. We have the ever so watchful velociraptors, who are basically just there for a show...I think one of them went for country food later. We have the GURL-POWER ULTIMATE CYAN BLUE FEMALE WHATTHEFUDGEISITASAURUS REX! And then we have the T. Rex, A T. REX, who decides mid chase that he will not be confined to just being a hunter. He shall also be an interior decorator. We got to see him in action when he somehow bust through the waitress's house and painted the couch with her boss' intestines as he screamed for her (ooooh, a hint of love?) and the goth, geek, and waitress stood there screaming like we all would.

We also had our ever intelligent forensic scientist who was apparently foreign who forewarned our ever present CSI/FBI/Monster Hunter agents to remain indoors. And indoors they stayed, sleeping like good little heroes because they work hard. Oh so very hard. HARD. So hard in fact, that when they sleep, nothing-not even the screams/barking/crashing/ smashing/stomping/shrieking/roaring/scraping/hysterical laughing of the cast-could wake them. Nope. Guys gotta get their sleep. Thank you for protecting your country, gentlemen, you are an inspiration.

And, let's not forget the amazing scenes of this tiny rundown town...that has a factory that produces anything your imagination can think up. Like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory...except with dinosaurs instead of candy and oompa loompas.

My favorite parts are the dinosaurs dramatic entrances. Like when the fat, skirt chaser switches on and off all the switches that so obviously, but not obviously, say DOORS- LIGHTS- BETH *CAUTION* (our daddysgirlasaurus rex). Over and over. To test the dinosaurs ability to perceive escape.

As the waitress and goth stand in the middle of the farm, staring at him in deep contemplation of his IQ status.

And there was the fact that, as long as you don't SEE the dinosaur, even if it's behind you/ stalking you/wants to ask you about our lord and savior, it will not run after you if you run back to your friends/people who abandon you at the earliest opportunity.

And, as Madam Dark and Crazy demonstrates, YOU CAN FISH FOR RAPTORS using a toy fishing rod and a doll. Sure, go ahead, reel it in! She also showed us that dinosaurs are great back messagers. With just enough pressure, it can make you feel like it just snapped your spine oh-so good.

But don't let me tell you. Ask the FBI/Sleepyhead agents who can only be raised from their slumber by an explosion...

Not a roar.

An explosion.

This movie has got it all.

So messy it should be Raptor Ranch Dressing...

Well, this movie had prehistoric raptors and Lorenzo Lamas... So what could possibly go wrong?

Aside from just about everything?

This movie was really awful, sorry for being so direct and blunt. But it needs to be said. The 2004 "Raptor Island" movie, also with Lorenzo Lamas in it, was equally bad. And yet there is something alluring to these kind of cheesy movies. Perhaps it is the fact that you know it is going to be bad that makes you want to sit down for a laugh or two.

The story here is about a strange, old man who apparently has been creating dinosaurs on his farm (for some odd reason we don't get to know why, much less to be told just how about he went doing this). A local native girl, along with a singer and his groupies and three young college friends become stuck in the small town, terrorized by the prehistoric raptors. And called to the case are two federal agents.

Right, this storyline was really not believable in any sense, and there were just so many things that didn't make sense throughout the movie. And for being federal agents, then I must say that those two in the movie were about the most ineffective and lazy of agents around.

There was no excitement, thrills or scares throughout this movie. And the pace just trotted ahead in a very monotone pace, which actually cased me to nod off two or three times along the movie. And I can't claim that dozing off here and there caused me to miss out on anything crucial to the storyline.

The dinosaurs were awkward and badly animated most of the time. However, once in a while they did actually come off as believable enough. However, don't expect anything near "Jurassic Park" in any way.

The dialogue throughout the movie was unbelievably forced and stuttering. There was no natural flow, and most of the actors and actresses weren't really helping the movie along in a positive way.

You know very well how this movie is going to be, and sure enough, it turned out to be exactly as bad as expected.

There might be some odd enjoyment in this movie if you are a head-over-heels fan of anything even remotely tied to dinosaurs. But for us regular movie watchers, nah, not so much to come here for...

a lot better then people say

Personally I don't get all the hate for this film, I thought it was entertaining and diverting enough to kill 90 minutes. Has some cool death scenes and fun acting by Lamas(reprising his role from Raptor Island and Raptor Planet), the CGI isn't horrible, i've seen way worse. The Story is nothing special, but then again with Sci-Fi Channel films you know not to expect Oscar-caliber writing. Is it a smart film, hell no, but it's infinitely more watchable then say those godawful Paranormal Activity films, the Twilight movies, those horrible remakes of foreign horror films(I.E. The Eye, Shutter, Pulse, One Missed Call, The Grudge, etc)
