Hidden deep in the industrial district of downtown Los Angeles, Dr. Harrison Parker (JEFF FAHEY) has developed the "Eden Formula." This new, revolutionary, cutting-edge technology can actually synthetically reproduce virtually ANY organism. AND IT DOES!

Locked away in a subterranean vault is a prehistoric creature created by the scientists at Calgorin Industries to impress their stockholders. Unknown to Dr. Parker, his research has been used to genetically create a giant TYRANOSAURUS REX! When a group of industrial spies break into Calgorin Industries to try and steal the formula, they encounter more than they bargained for. Unwittingly they release the monster! In a race against time, Rhonda Shapton (DEE WALLACE-STONE), top executive at Calgorin Industries, and Dr. Parker try and stop the rampaging beast from it's killing spree!

Hostile Takeover and a Dinosaur
Joshua Koppel | Chicago, IL United States | 07/01/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"With a bid T-Rex on the cover you would think this is a movie about a rampaging dinosaur. It is not. The film revolves around a pharmaceutical firm that has created a new drug known as the Eden Formula. It has the possibility of wiping out many diseases and even holding off aging. As a big PR stunt, the formula was used to create a tyrannosaurus. But a disgruntled past partner wants to get his hands on the formula. With a bunch of mercenaries he takes control of the facility so that he can get his hands on the data and samples. When unlocking the safes, they also unlock the dinosaur cage and it gets out.

A late meeting has a couple of executives still on site. When they realize what is happening, they take steps to prevent the theft of their discovery. Meanwhile the dinosaur gets a handful of cameos as it stumbles upon the odd person out in the city. But the real dram is inside with the mercenaries and executives trying to outsmart one another. Eventually both groups run into the dinosaur briefly and the film reaches some form of conclusion.

The characters seem to have been added in at the last minute. The main attacker seems like a grunt and not a scientist. One of the executives spends most of her time reacting like a little girl. Its like they put characters in place and then later wrote their back stories. Badly. The dinosaur goes between looking like decent CGI to a bad puppet and keeps looking different. Its scenes are almost comic relief. All in all this doesn't even qualify as a good late-night film. If you want to see how a very good creature film can be made on a small budget, check out Night Feeders and avoid this one."
Don't get this!

"They could of made this movie a heck of a lot better just by making the dinosaur scenes a bit more accurate. All they had to do was make the T.rex a little less puppet-like. He gets goofier every time the action starts
rising. It could of been a little bit more terrifying if the actors where a bit better, not poor, old, runts. And, they could of used better CGI on the T.rex scenes.-Six year old film critic
