Plot: A small, secluded island off the coast of Belize suddenly finds itself terrorized by a deadly predator from the planet’s distant past when deep sea divers accidentally awaken an ancient evil.
Review: It is not often when I can sit through a B-grade movie without wanting to switch over to something else. This was almost no different. The movie started out as predictable as you can expect. A Half-dinosaur (P-Rex) half sea monster creates havoc on an island off the coast of Belize. Welcome the troupe to the rescue here. The “Alpha male’s answer to Lara Croft”, Jax, The sexy blond Scientist, Sarah (who looks like she just graduated from Spring Break), All Party boy Rod and his ever annoying girlfriend, Jane (thankfully we don’t see too much of her, as she takes off to a boat party with the “poor man’s answer to Tom Cruise, and is soon killed off by the CGI dino 🙂 )
During all the bad CGI effects of dinosaur on the rampage and the amount of gun-fire, Jax and Sarah do get that ever predictable “lets have sex” scene. Never mind about the guy in the next room, and the conveniently made up bed in the war-room (what????). Of course, after Jax ploughs her, it’s “business as usual”, and tra-la-la, the predictable demise of the CGI dinosaur.
Film made some merit, and a good concept, but the lack of acting ability and bad CGI was a major let down for me. Not to mention the vast plot-holes which were as obvious as driving into a lake 🙂
If you are in the mood for a B-grade flick, then by all means watch this, even for picking out all the holes in this film.
