In the Federal Science Institute, Dr. Jillian O'Hara and her assistant Brian Murphy will demonstrate their research to a commission led by the arrogant Senator Jackson Crenshaw and Dr. Karen Fast from the president office expecting to keep the budget of her laboratory. Colonel Sam Synn is responsible for the security with Lieutenant Rivers and Pvt. Jordan Reid. Dr. O'Hara explains that her machine is the fruit of a long research initiated by her father and can show parallel dimensions. During the demonstration, there is a problem in the device and the room is transported to another dimension with everybody that is observing the experiment. Soon the survivors discover that the room is placed in the wilderness of a dangerous dimension inhabited with wild beasts. Written by

Colonel Sam Synn quips "We're going to need a bigger boat." - a homage to 'Jaws' where that line became famous. See more »
The alien dimension is apparently populated by only one type of carnivorous animal. Where are the other animals which would be required as prey? See more »
Dr. Jillian O'Hara:
...in case you haven't noticed, we don't exactly have working faucets here. And the nearest plumber's over 100 dimensions away.
Well, couldn't we all just pee in a cup?

There are a few problems with this TV movie from the emasculated Syfy Channel. I throw up a little in my mouth when I have to write its new name. Overall it's watchable and a traditional Radiation Theatre film. Here are some fun things about Ferocious Planet which I like to call The Quasi-Ferocious Planet.
Most actors had American accents at the beginning but the Irish started coming out toward the end. CarrieFisher-idice!
So this is John Rhys-Davies' new career. Show up for the 100K. Film a scene or two and get killed? He's done that like nine times. I wish I had a job like that.
Apparently there is only one type of creature inhabiting this forest on this random parallel universe. No bugs,snakes or creepy things to give us some cool jump moments. Too bad. Oh well, there was this mushroom but it didn't really do anything.
"We're out of time" is said so often I was truly convinced they were out of time.
The writer(s) apparently loved Jaws, Jurassic Park and Alien as a kid (who didn't!) Too bad writer(s) couldn't find a more appropriate place to use the homage line, "You're gonna need a bigger boat".
The science of how they got to the F. Planet in the first place was unintelligible, like a madman writing on a wall. It was a view scope to other dimensions that suddenly became a transporter device because . . .
Using only one creature (who looked like a Swiss Army Knife) mixed with the unusually high body count resulted in fewer creative kills. Just a Dinosaur with razors everywhere on its body.
Must say the effects were better than an average SyFy crap on a stick. OOps threw up a little again.
In summation, too many missed story opportunities and it drags towards the end.
So I leave you this advice: Don't poke the alien.
