Did You Know?

Goofs

When the Navy helicopter attacks the dinosaur it shows muzzle flashes coming from the helicopter's nose which indicate the gun is mounted in its nose. The helicopter is an SH-60 Seahawk and no version used by the Navy has any weapons mounted in the nose. See more »

Don't waste time and/or money on this...
8 April 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

heyho!

im usually into these kinds of films, but this was really, really bad... extremely poor writing (navy base standard vehicle is a Hummer H2? WTF? and so on...)

poor sound FX (guns sound like paintball guns)...

poor movie overall...

well, i understand budget issues and all the likes, but this actually looked like a movie from the 90's....ok, the early 90's... I've seen some computer games A FEW YEARS ago, which had better/ more compelling stories and SFX than this movie..go and watch Primeval...much more fun and much more sophisticated... This move would be something for, lets say a 11:30 pm timeslot on German public TV....yes..it is that bad...

please don't waste your time! Felix
