Pteradactyl (2005)
22 December 2005 | by (Kingsport, TN) – See all my reviews

3.5/10. Just what you would expect it to be, a bad sci-fi horror film, cheaply produced. For some inane reason, I get a kick out of these kind of films. That doesn't mean i think they are good, I just relish in the badness of them. Some of the special effects are decent, but I am not a big fan of these computer generated special effects. This acting is poor overall,but a couple of the actors do fine. Not much here to recommend. It can be quite gory and gruesome at times, and the special effects in this area are very poor. Mark L. lester's direction is minimal to say the least. The score is very obvious and even distracting at times. Cheesy sets. Yuk.
