Did You Know?

Goofs

Aircrew did use throat mics, as you see in the film, they would constantly be taking their hands off the controls. They had a radio button on the joystick to transmit, which activated the mic, they did not have to touch it. See more »

Unspeakable.
20 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like many of the other commentators, I love made-for Scifi-movies and how could I resist "Dinosaurs Vs. WWII" as a plot summary? I should have. It was crap. Bad acting, bad effects, bad script, and bad directing. Even the costumes were garbage. The whole thing might have been salvaged if the actors/directors hadn't taken themselves so seriously. The movie would have actually been fun as a tongue-in-cheek thriller, but they insisted upon acting as if dinosaurs fighting lady-aviators in a Pacific atoll was high art. If there is a merciful God, Scifi will put this turd back in the vault and never speak of it again.
