This is one of my all time favorite movies. I believe it is excellent in almost every way. The only reason everyone on this page hates this movie was because the special effects couldn't compete with Jurrasic Park. They may say they disliked it for other reasons, but in reality, they are just kidding themselves and trying to find flaws that aren't there so they look like they aren't effects-hungry morons who can't enjoy a film unless it has at least 10 minutes worth of CGI. Also, this movie asks its audience to suspend its disbelief, due to the fact the plot isn't very realistic, but as usual, the American people aren't willing to do that and just want to be mindlessly entertained. First off, the plot, while unrealistic, is very creative and inteligent. The style is very creepy and depressing. The fact that this movie is filled with black humor and delights in vulgar nastiness makes this a very strange film indeed, but this is very refreshing due to the fact that it's a dinosaur movie (how many other dinosaur movies do you know about that are like this one?) and the style never detracts from the fun-factor. The acting is excellent and the characters are much more interesting than any that were in Jurrasic Park. Also, the special effects are not bad. While not excellent by any standard, they are still, fun, creepy, and convincing. You never see any zippers, strings, holes, or other such flaws, and the dinosaurs never appear to be "floating" or anything like that. And lastly, (A) despite popular belief, a raptor never laughs at any point. There is one scene where one grunts and breathes hard, and it does sound a bit like laughter, but it was obviously not intended to sound that way, and (B) this is not a Jurrasic Park rip-off. Rip-offs steal ideas and stories. Carnosaur doesn't do this. It was definitely made to cash in on the success of Jurrasic Park, but is a very different movie overall. So in conclusion, I think Carnosaur simply RULES!!!!!!!!!! To all you people badmouthing it, I hope a green and mean raptor visits you tonight...
