Storyline

In the Isla Damas, a group of soldiers lands on the island and are attacked and murdered by a Komodo dragon. Two men, Hanson and Jason, leave a building surrounded by an electric fence to seek out survivors. They run back to the building and a woman, Rebecca "Becky"), who is the daughter of the scientist. Nathan Phipps, deactivates the fence. Phipps and his assistant Dawn Porter contact the Chief of a Naval Base at Hawaii, Foster, to discuss the dragons that are genetically-engineered by them to produce food that have turned into war machines by Foster. Meanwhile, a casino is robbed in Hawaii by the thieves Drake, Tiffany, and Reece that flee to Damas using the pilot of helicopter Jack. Soon they meet Phipps and Dawn shooting at a Komodo dragon and they learn that they need to team-up with the scientists to survive. Further, the contact with a Komodo turns the person onto a zombie.

you people are way to harsh on this flick
5 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Want to see Jurassic Park style special effects and Oscar caliber acting? I can recommend a lot of movies for you...but this is not one of them.

That however, is not a knock of this movie. Curse of the Komodo is a low budget romp and it serves it's purpose. It entertained me for 90 minutes, just as it was meant too.

My review. Not as good as the 'original', but still entertaining. It had it obligatory boob scene (rather pointless) and women in tight shirts, buff guys and baaad military guys. Did I mention the horrendous special effects? These FX would not have been out of place in the 60's! Bullerproof lizards, zombie creating slime, bank robbers and corrupt military officers, buff guys and buxom women, stock footage of big boats...what more could a movie want?
