Delving back into the Sci-fi Channel's man eater series I found RISE OF THE GARGOYLES, an okay monster movie featuring above average acting and a reasonable storyline, my standards were considerably low because this film was directed by Bill Corcoran who also directed another man eater film called VIPERS and believe me if you've seen VIPERS, I won't blame you if you're hesitant about seeing this film.
Fortunatly, this film is a whole lot better than VIPERS, its also not something I would tell the world about but at least its nowhere near as bad as VIPERS, the acting in this film is actually pretty good considering the material and the storyline is done well enough for the film to be entertaining.
The CG effects are tough to judge because during the film the monster is barely seen and when it is seen, you never get a close up look at the monster its always shown from a distance, the one thing you can tell when you eventually see it, is that it is done with CGI.
Overall, RISE OF THE GARGOYLES isn't something I would go out of my way to recommend but if there's nothing else to watch, then I recommend it
