Goofs

The Captain is shown twice in quick succession on the night of the hunt, entering the cave and approaching the camp fire and beginning to unbutton his shirt, a few seconds of the exact same scene shown twice nearly back to back with only a short scene of one of the girls throwing her fortune-telling bones on the cave floor in between the repeated scenes.

Obviously Not Taking Itself Seriously
28 July 2002 | by (Columbus, OH) – See all my reviews

I can't help but enjoy this movie. It's a jiggle-movie that manages to make fun of jiggle-movies. Whether or not this was intended is irrelevant. One can very plainly tell that the cast and crew are NOT taking themselves seriously on this project. The dinosaurs appear to be recycled from the Carnosaur movies, with no regard for achieving realism. The filmmakers have a great time using the oldest effects tricks in the book for this movie. Again, like a lot of movies, this one is the type that is best enjoyed by those who enjoy a good, BAD movie.
