Storyline

A team of scientists working on a remote dig site find the buried body of an enormous monster, perfectly preserved even after 200 million years. As soon as the beast is uncovered, however, an alien spacecraft suddenly appears above them and brings the monster back to life! The creature immediately sets about levelling the surrounding urban landscape and shrugging off the best firepower the military can throw at it. A lone scientist, working on decrypting an ancient set of hieroglyphics, may be on the verge of finding the aliens' weak point, but will it be too late?

the mother of all B-movies!
4 May 2003 | by (where i am is where i am) – See all my reviews

this movie has everything:

a giant monster named gary (who wouldn't like that?)

alien invaders

mind control devices

greed motivated villians

tragic heroes

epic battles that even gojira would envy

decent special effects

farfetched action scenes

and my favorite... hundreds of army men fighting the aliens with jetpacks and laser guns. take that gojira!!!!!!!

if you're looking for a movie to take seriously, than this one isn't for you. i don't think that even the movie takes itself seriously.

if you are a fan of mystery science theater 3000 or liked attack of the killer tomatos or dark star, then you just might get reptilian. this movie was a hoot and a half. it's a silly over the top comic book of a movie. i laughed and laughed and laughed.

b-movies just don't get any better than this.
