In the opening shot, the convoy starts out with a jeep, troop carrier, semi-truck with the dinosaur trailer, and two jeeps at the tail end. Over the following shots, the convoy changes to having one jeep at the end, then two jeeps at the end, then only one jeep again, and finally two jeeps again when the ambush occurs. See more »
Receiving word of a terrorist unit at work in the area, a Special Forces unit goes to investigate and finds the terrorists had unintentionally intercepted a shipment of genetically-engineered dinosaurs and races to corral them before they escape.
This here wasn't all that bad of an effort, though it's definitely the weakest of the whole series and has its share of faults. One of the biggest issues in the film is the fact that there's an extreme lack of dinosaur action present, as the short running time barely has them even in the movie and the majority of the scenes are all placed at the end which is quite inexcusable for a film about dinos to begin with. Having the film mostly centered around the two military units getting to know each other and forced to work with each other to contain the dinosaurs makes this one quite hard to really get interested in, since the film's main focus is elsewhere instead of on the main point, and the endless scenes of them getting to know each other gets quite exhaustive after a while. As such, the common factor of having the dinosaurs look like puppets is quite hard to get over, though by this time in the series it should be required knowledge going on that's what's going to be featured. There's still some good dinosaur action at the end where they're trapped in the cargo hold of the ship, which means that there's the exploring of the cramped quarters to exploit in terms of suspense and the usual liberal doses of blood and gore on display, as well as in the first big action scene where they escape and menace the terrorists in the warehouse, but otherwise this is the blatant low-end of the series.
