Introductory title says "Isla Damas 312 Miles South of Honolulu". That would be roughly 17N157W. At the end 1:07:30 in the movie the military operation is launched with coordinates 7.35' 240.10', congruent with Indonesia. There is also a real Isla Damas near Chile at 29.14'S 71.31'W. The movie is consistent only with the "312 Miles South of Honolulu" location. See more »

It's an hour and a half of your life you'll never get back...
5 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

If there are movies that end careers, this would be one of them. The only highlight of this movie consisted of the end credits - not because they were good, but because they marked the end of the movie.

The acting is bad, the characters are shallow and boring, and the monsters are laughable. The story centers around a giant komodo dragon which goes on an eating spree. If this weren't bad enough, the komodo dragon's saliva seems to turn those it touches into zombies! One of the problems is that there's only 1 komodo dragon and 2 zombies, and none of them are given much in the way of screen time. In other words, the majority of the movie is dialogue-based. This wouldn't have been a huge drawback if the dialogue hadn't been so bad. There were times I found myself tidying the room to pass the time, waiting for something interesting to happen. And when something did happen, it hardly warranted my attention.

At least the people on the island had what appeared to be unlimited ammunition and a small whiskey flask that never went empty....
