Trivia

The 16-foot tall Tyrannosaurus Rex robot from the first film was reused for this sequel. In the original movie, the robot had frequently broken down and performed so poorly that its use was limited to only a few shots. Despite budget constraints, Magical Media Industries did manage to improve the robot T-Rex so that it could be used more extensively for the battle scene in which the dinosaur fights the forklift. However, the robot was still ill-suited to stunt work (such as the shots of the creature ramming the forklift), so miniatures and hand puppets were again used frequently, as in the first film.

Carnosaur 2 is Aliens
15 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Whereas the first was a Monster-on-the-loose in a small town kind of movie, this one is much more of a cramped low-lighted enclosed-space survival horror along the likes of the video game Dino Crises. To start off, I want to To start off, I want to make it clear that Aliens is one of my all-time favorite science fiction/horror movies, and this movie is Aliens. It's as if they took the exact same script but turned Ripley into a male, Newt into a male, set it at a facility in the desert instead of another planet, and replace the aliens with Raptors, and then you've got this movie. I am not kidding when I say it's the exact same movie as Aliens. Even some of the dialog is word for word the exact same. And you know what? I'm fine with that, because it ended up making for a damn entertaining movie. I always say that if you're going to rip something off, rip off something good.
