Sequel that's better than the original
16 November 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

When a special forces team is sent to investigate a distress signal at a top-secret military base, they find the base overrun by carnivorous dinosaurs and must battle the vicious creatures to get away alive.

This here is one of the rare sequels that manages to come off as better than the original. It still has the same problem having atrocious-looking special effects for its dinosaurs, which always manage to come across as hand-puppets and miniatures in the scene, but that doesn't really impact the film too much when this one has as much positives as this one does. By taking the plot line of 'Aliens' and substituting dinosaurs, it comes away as a thrilling, high-energy action-packed film that contains a lot of great moments, from the opening introduction of the dinosaurs in the cavern below to their rampage through the compound attacking everyone in sight through some pretty ingenious sneak attacks, the helicopter ambush crash and the finale, which is a real highlight here as it's the grand battle between the bigger dinosaur and the digging equipment makes for a rather thrilling moment, especially as it's a pitched battle that takes place over a period of time and makes its' location all the better due to the precariousness of it. As well, there's plenty of blood and gore to be featured, which is a factor carried over from the first one and is enhanced with more sinewy ripping and tearing. Again, the fact that plot is note-for-note, even managing to replicate the same exact scenes as well, could be a flaw here as well as the rather phony-looking dinosaurs, but even still it's a lot better than the original.

Rated R: Graphic Violence and Graphic Language.
