This isn't the first time John Rhys-Davies has been apart of something dealing with Alternate (Parallel) Dimensions. From 1995-1997 he starred in the television show 'Sliders' as Professor Arturo. The whole premise of the show dealt with Parallel Dimensions. See more »
Dr O'Hara states the machine requires 50 gallons of water. Besides the device not being large enough to hold 50 gallons, the water would make it weigh 412 lbs, making it impossible for Murphy to carry it around. See more »
More nonsense from the SyFy Channel. This one sees a diverse group of characters randomly transported to an alien planet, where they must contend with an aggressive alien monster who seems intent on having them for lunch. What it all boils down to is a bunch of characters running around in a forest and being menaced and eaten by a dinosaur-like beast.
FEROCIOUS PLANET has absolutely nothing that makes it stand out from the crowd. The actors are undistinguished (the only familiar face is John Rhys-Davies, who is bumped off early on), the characterisation is nil and the script just isn't true to life. The CGI effects are unsurprisingly bad, and the action isn't exciting. Throwing in a handful of mildly gory death scenes just doesn't do anything to make it better.
Although the film strives to be an exciting story of adventure and survival, it never is. It lacks the B-movie spirit of something like AZTEC REX, where the narrative becomes a romp and the viewer enjoys themself regardless; the only thing you'll be enjoying here are the closing credits.
