Storyline

A top-secret experiment spawns two highly intelligent life-forms: Einstein, a golden retriever with an IQ of 175; and The Outsider, a deformed monstrosity that exists to kill... and avenge its creators. When the Outsider escapes into the jungles of South America, the government sends in some ex-military convicts to catch the beast. But what starts out as a high-speed chase ends up in bloody carnage. Only Einstein knows the Outsider's motives, and only the canine can outsmart the creature. Now, it's a battle of beasts as man's best friend confronts man's worst nightmare. Written by Concorde - New Horizons (with permission).

"I thought I saw a little kid and a dog?"
2 August 2011 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

Here's another Corman produced adaptation of Dean R Koontz's novel. Was it impressive… well let's ask the intelligent canine for an answer. One bark for No. Two for yes. Three barks for you got to be kidding me. Really you don't need to be super smart to figure it out. While using the same background story as its predecessors (a top secret experiment spawning a super intelligent dog is used as a beacon for a monster known as the outsider in what is a combat weapon), "Watchers III" felt like an odd one out even though its focus was on the experiment at work being test on some expendable ex-military convicts in a South American jungle and the Ferguson character from the last sequel making an reappearance (although under a different actor). The premise had a lot to work off, but instead it decides to be an extra ordinary wannabe second rate predator rip-off with many sequences, actions and dialogues lifted from that film, but without the aplomb. I couldn't believe how hackneyed it was, as you could probably start drinking game from it. Wings Hauser is a sight for sore eyes, as it is his awesomeness that makes it bearable. Stereotypical characters come and go, to only be scratched up or decapitated by its hideously wonky looking man in a creature suit. It's a different design compared to the previous entries and it doesn't look all that great. Think of "Xtro 2" and there you go. Hell it even gets its own sort of vision ala "Predator". There are moments of violence and gore, but they are boringly staged with its clunky execution and its derivatively lacklustre climax paints that well enough. While the film is short-lived, it can't finish any sooner because of how soporific the plan in motion just happens to be. Feeble, low-rent monster-on-the-loose nonsense.

"I like to know what the hell is going on?"
