Goofs

At the film's climax ending, a segment is repeated a few minutes later: the electrical surge rises from Ba'al's statue, breaks the same pane of glass and hits Ba'al in his right cheek again. See more »

Complete Lack of Substance
20 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie can be summed up by one word: "blah". It wasn't good, and it wasn't really bad. It just *wasn't*. I was hoping for another laughable Sci-Fi Original; some terrible script, some sad predictable plot, some poorly delivered lines, some poor acting.... but there's none of this. It's just "blah" all around.

In this film, you won't find much of a story. There really isn't a plot, just some very vague good-vs-evil. There's a lot of running around, and the whole movie is one big exercise in boredom. It doesn't even have the humor of a so-bad-it's-good flick.

So don't bother. Just go rent Carnosaur instead ;)
