Take that, King Kong! Eat your heart out, Jurassic Park!, 29 April 2003
Author: petekrug17 from portland OR

Oh, boy, what can I say? The worst giant ape suit ever shown in a movie, and the horribly fake looking, obviously plastic T-rex (and this is coming from a guy who actually found the mechanical sharks in each of the JAWS movies convincing). Think of how much more laughable this would have been if the movie had been about the Tyrannosaurus. It may well have rivaled THE GIANT CLAW for silliest monster movie ever. Forget KING KONG LIVES, _this_ is the worst giant ape flick that has ever been released. A must-see if you're a bad movie fan.
