The dinosaurs didn't go completely extinct when the asteroids hit 65 million years ago. Today, every ten thousandth person in the country is a dinosaur, evolved to be human-sized, wearing sophisticated solid-light holographic disguises to maintain the facade, getting stoned off regular cooking herbs like basil, rosemary and tarragon, and living by their own shadow government's laws; any human who stumbles upon them is to be immediately executed. Two dino private investigators, velociraptor Vincent Rubio and triceratops Ernie Watson, are hired by one of Ernie's old girlfriends to find out why her younger brother committed suicide, and discover a dino cult called Voice Of Progress that wants dinokind to come out of the closet and reclaim the planet.

Anonymous Rex (2004)
26 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really kind of enjoyed this. Not what I was expecting at all. The idea of dinosaurs surviving and living among people raises many questions, none of which go answered. It brings about familiarities with Men in Black and Alien Nation. Luckily, it falls into a weird void of comedic, cheesy, sci-fi noir. Our protagonist is one of these dinosaurs used to "silence" human witnesses. Immediately this causes a lot of interest, as we have a character that essentially kills humans, most of whom are just in the wrong place at the wrong time. At the same time the film does well to make us empathise with their plight. He is also a private detective, which leads to some rather knowing voice-overs. The best thing is that he is a conflicted character, one that kind of believes that the dinosaurs should stop living in the shadows, and rise up against the humans. Obviously the effects aren't up to much and they will generate chuckles. The science is out the window, just go with it. This will be a great film for B Movie fans, as it doesn't take itself too seriously, but doesn't hide its shortcomings with over-the-top winks at the camera. I also enjoyed the techniques employed for the dinosaur destruction flashback (using toys), and the visual representations to the different pheromones.
