Trivia

It is very much possible that the creators of the movie may have wanted more character development in the marines. Evidence of this is seen in the deleted scene of showing what the marines did the night before the time jump, such as Burke talking in his phone seemingly about family issues by the way he makes stressful gestures with his hands, while Jones and Manriquez play a game of cards ending with Jones saying a vulgar remark about Manriquez's mother. Since the movie was partially rushed due to a deadline, most of the marines ended up with little to no character development and are often cited as the most bland characters in the movie, with Reno and the old research team being the only ones with character. Despite all this, they are some of the most important characters in the first half of the movie. See more »

Awful Movie
29 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Please don't waste anytime watching this movie, trust me it is time badly spent. For a film of this day and age, the special effects were terrible, the Simpsons movie had better effects, and the acting was also better in the Simpsons as well. Poorly written and very predictable, I was hugely disappointed with the "movie" and it's overall story. The creators should watch Jurassic Park then get back to us with something a little less wooden. This film must have been made on a budget of about £10 because the so called dinosaurs were drawn and the guy playing Reno must have done his part for free as it was so bad. It's a straight to bin movie for me
