Lame, but not the worst I've seen from SyFy
24 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'll give some credit where it's due. I did think the locations did look beautiful and there is one good character, Wyatt, played with quirky enthusiasm by Gabriel Womack. However, while SyFy have done far worse than this(just look at Camel Spiders, Quantum Apocalypse, Titanic II and Alien vs. Hunter for examples) Triassic Attack is pretty lame. The skeleton dinosaurs' designs are a step above designs with dinosaurs in flesh and blood, but they still look substandard. The audio is overbearing at times and sometimes overshadows the dialogue. Nothing exciting musically either. The script apart from Wyatt's amusing quips is generally weak and unimaginative, and the story feels leaden and the usual suspend disbelief moments with a lack of thrills and suspense. Wyatt aside, the characters are clichéd and dull, and the acting more often than not look very stiff here. The direction is somewhat efficient, but ultimately joyless. Overall, not the worst I've seen from SyFy, but apart from the scenery, one good character and Womack, there was little good, in my opinion that is. 3/10 Bethany Cox
