Time Travel and dinosaurs
R. Bagula | Lakeside, Ca United States | 06/08/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Special effects on the dinosaurs in this are not real good,
but the multi-looping paradox time travel makes up for it.
The scientist sends his nurse girl friend and his brother
back to before the Asteroid hit Yucatan, where large predatory
lizards roamed free. Of 21 sent back only four live to return
and most of the rescue mission are lost as well.
A large dinosaur makes it through the time gate / wormhole
into downtown LA. I would have liked this to take place during the day,
but since the special effects are minimal,
they used the night to hide their faults...
and a happy ending results.
Let us hope they don't make a sequel."
You might regret this waste of time on your death bed

I picked this up from one of the Red Box rental units at the local grocery store and could tell by the time the credits had finished rolling that this was going to be a real stinker of a movie. B-Movie aside this has wretched acting and a paper thin plot based on highly dubious science. The only plus were the special effects that were so bad that they made me laugh a few times ... seriously folks, do not waste your money."
Could have been worse

"The science fiction doubletalk actually wasn't as stupid as many time travel movies, but still pretty bad. The lack of a timer on the return device, especially since the inventor knew ahead of time on would be needed, is an OBVIOUS plot device. The special effects weren't very good, but could have been worse (see AVH: Alien Vs Hunter for the real pits). The SEAL team was stupid and wimpy - maybe even less realistic than time travel. I gave it 2 stars though because it is mildly entertaining."
The 25 cent Spectacular!

"Step right up folks, and see plastic dinosaur heads, 3rd rate special effects of people jumping very slowly from airplanes, actors who're supposed to be living in 100,000 sporting LA blonde streaked hairdos and girls in MTV outdoor outfits. This movie is so terribly bad that I'm seriously thinking of buying it to show at parties, along with another horror special, Hands of Manos, made for probably a little more money--like 35 cents.
Filmed in some rocky canyon that's supposed to be premordial forest, the cast doesn't have a chance of saving this truly horrendous bomb. Christopher Atkins is shown several times aiming his trustly bow-and-arrow as he takes aim against a plastic dinosaur. An arrow is certainly the most destructive weapon in the world to kill a roaring dinosaur. and for some reason, the camera always moves closer to Atkins right eye as he prepares to slay the beast--the right eye staying on the screen for several seconds. Does this mean something? Atkins and his right eye?
Anyway, whenever the cast members see a monster, they look at it like it's a growling dog--expressing zero fear or horror. In another scene, they're supposedly terrorized by a giant croc. Except you never see the croc. The screen is filled with fangs and red images of some croc from another movie. and then the cast is terrorized again by something roraring off camera. They all stare at something behind the camera--but we never see it.
By this time, I had had enough and hit eject. My nightmares are filled with plastic heads of dinosaur being animated by a hidden hand, and then in one scene, you actually see the man beneath the dinosaur head as it bobs around in the air like it's just had a bad overdose of LSD.
We need more flicks like this to remind us of the days when Hollywood used to turn out genuine classics--like The thing, Alien, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Halloween. I immediately slipped John carpenter's The Thing into my machine and was lost in horror heaven."
