Goofs

The American flag patch on the right arms of the soldiers' uniforms is incorrect. It should have the stars on the right side, making it look backwards. See more »

Surprisingly good acting, poor special effects
31 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought the plot had potential, but the special effects were very poorly done. It would have been better if we had never seen the "manticore" -- just shadows or a claw here and there. And I won't even comment on the helicopter crash.

The acting, though, was a pleasant surprise. Robert Beltran and Jeff Fahey (whose performance in "Silverado" is one of my all-time favorites) turned in good, solid performances. The real surprises came from A.J. Buckley, Faran Tahir and even some of the more minor roles, like Jeff M. Lewis and Richard Gnolfo. I'm looking forward to seeing them again.
