tongue in cheek
27 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like Tremors this is not meant to be art it is fun take it as such. it is a parody of this genre which i happen to like.

only downer is loss of the geek and goofy blond so early.

dialogue is simple and predictable yet watch it for the fun of it and enjoy.

when was the last time you saw pterodactyls? the special effects weren't Star Wars but the flying dinosaurs at least didn't look like they were little clay figures.

over all this is a movie to watch on a cloudy afternoon and talk back to the characters.
