Sorry, but hardly worth watching.
2 June 2010 | by (Rotterdam,Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Without a doubt, the special effects in this series are pretty good. The rest isn't really. It's just very weak stories with many predictable 'scare' moments. Kids might enjoy this, adults have to turn off their brains to a max. It's all been done/seen before. I personally am prepared to overlook these kind of defects, when compensated, for instance, by some interesting lead characters with personalities (the 'A-team' would be a good example here). However, except for Connor Temple and maybe James Lester, these people are utterly boring. I find myself not really caring for any of them, should they die or something.

So why am I watching this in the first place, one might ask. Andrew-Lee Potts would be the answer. In Syfy's mini series 'Alice', he managed to steal every scene and I keep hoping to see some of that magic here. But he hardly gets the chance. Those camera shots keep flashing about to get too many characters into 45 minutes, together with all those dinosaurs and other primeval creatures. Please, get this man a proper role in a quality production. His talent is wasted here.
