Storyline

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.

Pretty good for SyFy but also could've been much better
21 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although I was intrigued by the premise, I was expecting little in terms of quality as most SyFy movies are cheaply made, cheesy and badly written and acted. Having not read the book(s)(and I'd always try to judge a movie on its own terms anyway), I was pleasantly surprised by Anonymous Rex. True, the dialogue quality is still rather cheesy and stilted, and while the premise is interesting with a number of fun scenes there are also some scenes that came across as implausible or came across as loose ends. The ending too felt rather strange and abrupt in tone, and while there have been far worse performances Sam Trammel is a wooden lead. On the other hand, the editing for SyFy is actually quite good, more slick than choppy thankfully, and the effects not only are decent-looking but also not over-used. The dinosaurs are a fun and sometimes menacing presence, the sound effects are not bizarre but suitably eerie in places and the music is rousing in alternative to generic. The characters are thankfully more interesting than the usual annoying one-dimensional stereotypes that plague SyFy's movies, and while nobody is a standout as such(though also no-one is a complete waste either) the acting is still efficiently done on the whole. All in all, definitely could've been more but for me Anonymous Rex is one of the better SyFy originals. 6/10 Bethany Cox
