"This is the most disgusting piece of movie directing & editing it has been my misfortune to see. Several scenes from the movie Carnosaur 2 are spliced into this one. Talk about creatively dead! DON'T buy this movie, burn your money you will enjoy it more."
The best Carnosaur movie, even though it isn't one

"This movie takes footage from all three of the Carnosaur movies and makes a movie better than any of them. The main characters are actually kind of interesting (which is something you'd never say about anyone in any of the 3 Carnosaur movies), and I actually found myself caring about them when they got in a tight spot. It's also just a wonderful cheese fest. My favorite part is when the Sheriff calls up the power company to ask them to turn off the power to a certain facility at a certain time. He gets ahold of a customer service rep who looks like she should be saying "Hi, I'm Buffy, and I'd like to tell you about a wonderful new offer from Time-Life books". Then she forgets to turn off the power when she's supposed to. It's all good fun. Other people like to complain about all the continuity errors caused by the blatant stealing of film from other movies, but actually it isn't bad at all. If you like to nitpick that sort of stuff, this is the mother lode, but to the casual viewer you probably won't even notice.
Overall, I found this a very enjoyable B-movie. Melissa Braselle is great in her part (and great to look at), the plot moves along well, and it's all good fun."
"This movie is a total ripoff from the Carnosaur series. About 70% of the movie is scenes from the Carnosaur movies! However, this movie is fun to watch and is very funny. I mean, about two minutes into the movie and the dinosaurs are tearing people to shreads! This movies has tons of blood and gore, and fake looking dinosaurs. But if you are an open minded movie watcher looking for some low budget, cheesy fun, Raptor is for you!"
Terrible terrible terrible

"The Lost World:Jurassic Park was an enetrtaining film of monsters and dinosaurs but because spielberg didn't have the heart for doing this again was slow at times; Raptor a total ripoff out and out stinks. Here's the scoop; a man caled Dr. Hyde after his project of working with dinosaurs to help man( why would anybody want to use dinosaurs to help man when there are already animals out there that can do this for us already) starts his project up again in secret with help from Pakistan. A raptor escapes(by the way there are no raptors in this movie the dinosaurs are actually t-rex's we learn) and kills three idiotic people in there old stupid looking jeep wrangler. The sheriff and an animal control expert whom he actually knows well investigate and turn up nothing of course. After many more victims become apparent and they are baffled they come upon an abandoned truck delivering chickens which was attacked by the raptors and eaten they find a book to unis corporation owned by Dr. Hyde. After some more brutal and senseless attacks on people to waste our time we finally get to the unis corporation and the sheriff and control expert are trapped by Dr. Hyde. The U.S. generals who operated jurassic storm (the name of the dinosaur project Dr. Hyde is running) and terminated it send an elite team of marines to stop and destroy the creatures after they find out that Hyde restarted the project. We meet our eal heoes then but unfortunately are only on screen for a mere 15% of the movie. Dr. Hyde is eventually killed by a raptor which is pushed over the edge literally by the sheriff in an unconvincing kat. A bomb blows and finally ends our misery of this film killing all the raptors and thats it. No dialogue no nothing no afterwards finding out what happened to the people when the destruction is finally done for. Doen't matter really because Raptor is horribly written, horribly directed, horribly produced, horribly acted, oh and yes poorly crafted special effects(even those special effects from the original Jurassic Park are much better and that was over ten years ago!). Think twice before getting Raptor."
Should be titled "Ripoff"

"Remember "Carnosaur"? Here it is again. Same exact rubber "monster" scenes, new faces looking bewildered between them. Shame on me for not renting this first - skip it, you've seen this drivel before."
