There are bad movies and there are also movies that are so bad that they are good. This is one of them.
These B-movies are to me a different genre and I treat it as such. My rating is not the same if it was supposed to be a high quality sci fi. A big chunk of the points comes from the entertainment it gave me. What makes movie qualify for this kind of treatment in my eyes is if they don't take themselves too seriously. If they tried to pretend to be some serious movie I would have to rate it by such standards.
The plot of the movie is very simple. There isn't much logic behind it and I didn't bother with the inconsistencies. One thing I give thumbs up for though is that this movie did neither animal rights activists nor the park rangers the bad or good guys, these is something even the supposed high quality movies fail at often.
The movie is filled with pop stars from the 80's. Debbie and Tiffany who are the main characters of the movie and Micky Dolenz. I haven't really heard from them before and didn't even get that "monkey" joke at first. But I am sure that people who were their fans back in the days must have enjoyed this movie even more than I did.
The one who was a star to me in this movie was A Martinez. I recognized him from the soap opera "Santa Barbara" that I used to love as a child. And I was very impressed with his acting. It was very fitting to the genre. By that I am not trying to say that he was very bad. He just had a perfect screen presence and timing for all reactions and the atmosphere of the movie. I also really liked the acting of Kathryn Joosten. Her career is pretty amazing considering especially that it's highlight came pretty much towards the end of her life in Desperate Housewives. She did a great job as Angie in this movie and was very funny.
The main characters aren't such professional actors as the ones I have mentioned, but they weren't too bad. Good enough for a B movie. Terry's anger moments were hilarious in this movie. And their fight scene is definitely one of the highlights in the movie, even for someone like me who never was their fan in the 80's or saw their pop star "rivalry"
The visual effects were of course not very good. But I won't blame it on the crew, after all it is not such a high budget movie to do it James Cameron style. And for the most the scenery was very beautiful and I loved the dramatic effects that filled up the movie.
