I know it seems like it's a hobby that I rag on the SyFy movies. Trust me it isn't. I do keep watching them to see if they get any better, I do like to be entertained and I have once before if only to revel in their awfulness. But I couldn't do that with Planet Raptor. I disliked Raptor Island also, but compared to this (sort of) sequel it looks like an award winner. Planet Raptor suffers first and foremost from being cheaply made, the photography and editing are among the most choppy of any of SyFy's movies, and the special effects are abysmal, not only out-of scale and phony-looking but some like the dino munching on Steven Bauer actually look as though they were recycled from Raptor Island. The acting is just as bad, showing no kind of personality(apart from perhaps the end credits) or wanting to be there. In all honesty though, they don't have much to work with. The script is in extreme volumes of cheesiness and aimlessness, the story and action sequences are predictable and never exciting or suspenseful, the pacing is dull, the characters are clichéd and not likable at all and the direction is of lazy incompetence. Overall, a truly awful waste of time, one of about twenty plus times I have been infuriated rather than mildly entertained by a SyFy movie. And if I hear or see one more person trying to justify their movies' badness one more time, saying that it's meant to be bad(a typical cop-out of anybody trying to defend a disliked movie/show), I am going to scream, to me there is nothing fun about terrible visuals, flat directing, pacing and acting and completely uninteresting script and story, and while there is once in a while when these components are actually tolerable for SyFy Planet Raptor is not one of them. 1/10 Bethany Cox
