"Available in a 3 pack DVD set, these movies are fun and great if you are in for a laugh. DVD Set Contains: -Animated Interactive Menus, (They are really neat!) -Theatrical Trailers for all the films and for others, -Cast and Crew biographies -all films digitally remastered for the first time in their original fullscreen presentation. -Dolby Digital 2.0
They are always fun to watch. Part 2 is my favourite of the three. Definatly worth a look or maybe a purchase if its cheap."

"It disappoints me that so many reviews I have read on CARNOSAUR are so bad. So these movies aren't as good as the JURASSIC PARK movies. Well you should still stop calling them bad. I enjoyed these movie a lot. So there are corny special effects and some other shortcomings, but as a whole, this set was great. These movies weren't made on a huge budget and made to be great like JURASSIC PARK. I love JURASSIC PARK, but you still need to stop hating on CARNOSAUR. SO people, my only request is that you have on open mind about these movies and at least rent one of them. And for reference, the 2nd one is the best, followed by number 1, then number 3, although a good movie, is last. 5/5"
A Masterpiece- The epitomy of Australian cinema

"The story of a young boy's journey towards manhood is the central theme of this incredible story. Ned Belamy has proven himself worthy of rank among top rate actors like Chuck Norris and Bill Lumberg. The underlying literary devices prove the brilliance of director Roger Corman. The reccurance of the "Bobcat" as the plot develops, and the irony of the death of the mothersaurus play key roles in the blossoming of the protagonist. This film makes one question his philosophical standings on the significance of human interaction with nature. After watching this movie, I immediatley thought of the classic Robert Frost poem "The Road Not Taken" -however a little bloodier. I bet Frost's original draft had a theme more like Carnosaur- but his editor toned it down a bit. Now let's examine a little more in depth the pros and cons of the film. CONS:
The ending did not leave a feeling of understanding and satisfaction.
The visual effects were overwhelmingly mediocre.
Not nearly enought hot women.PROS:
the dynamic duo of Ned Belamy and Dianne Lad. Together, they were unstoppable.Warning: Don't let the R-rating scare you- it's quite tame."
Great Series, Bad Special Effects

"I liked carnosaur 2 & 3 and 1 was ok but the ending was incredibally awful. These movies were full of violence and gore and is really not reccommended for kids under the age of 16 or so. Although the good plot this movie was a really low budget film and had laughable dinosaurs. There were definetely some jumpy moments in this series but it ends when you see the funny dinos. If you are buying the films seperatly buy the 2nd first, 3rd second, and if you really need the first buy it last, it doesn't matter what order they are watched in.Carnosaur 1: From chicken eggs a deranged geneticist brings dinosaurs back to life. Through a virus people start giving birth to dinosaurs.Carnosaur 2: A crew of technicians is sent into a top secret facility to investigate a mysterious power shortage. And what they discover is horrifying. Radiation has caused dinosaur eggs to hatch and they are very hungry.Carnosaur 3: Terrorists thought they were stealing uranium. Yeah right. What they stole was dinosaurs being sent to another research facility. Then anti terrorists are sent to round up the dinos and keep them alive without becoming extinct themselves.Check out my other reviews under the screen name Nowakmt."
