But that is the wonderful thing about all SciFi Channel productions. Cheesy monsters, wooden dialog, D list actors with porn names, military units outfitted in Cabella's catalog costuming, "Soldiers" with hair styles from the 1980's disco era, spurting blood, single camera/single take cinematography, re-used sets, cliché stereotyping, and an amazing array of Hooters waitress types who are geologists, physicists, astronauts, biologists, etc.
For a fan of the original B movies these low budget, filmed in a week and written in a day formula pieces are true movie magic.
And Hydra is just exactly as awful as you would expect.
May God forgive me, I do love these so!
