Trivia

The Deinonychus from the first film were replaced by Velociraptors in the sequel. However, the exact same Deinonychus costume molds from the first film were used to create the bodies for the Raptor costumes; only the heads/necks were changed to reflect the longer neck and snout that distinguish the two dinosaurs. Close-ups were achieved using puppet heads with mechanical devices. See more »

Goofs

Two crew members are visible at the bottom of the screen when the camera cranes up for a master's shot of the restricted sub-level (before they discover the tooth). See more »

A fun movie, These Dinos Have BITE!!!!
26 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

Well I must say that I did really enjoy this movie. I know this thing is no where near perfection, and I'm not judging this movie based on that. I am a big movie watcher and I must say that I was able to sit through the movie all the way through and stay pretty interested to see what was going to happen. I was actually impressed with the dinosaur affects. The velociraptors were actually pretty cool looking. These dinos looked more vicious than the ones in the first one did. It gave the Carnosaur title more meaning i think. I did notice the tyrannosaurus was the same from the first one, but this movie used it more which i think that was a plus. Overall the acting was mediocre, I thought John Savage was pretty good. The nice thing about no name or mediocre named actors is you don't really know who is going to die. You may get an idea, but you still watch to see how its going to go down. I would recommend this movie if your bored and nothing is really on TV. It is definitely worth watching. It is much much better than the first Carnosaur and even better than the lame Carnosaur 3. I would say this is the best of the serious. Even though its got the alien like plot but another fun factor is that the team going in there to repair the plant aren't armed to all living hell with guns. I'd say this movie learned a little from the first Carnosaur and then watched Aliens and was like, "hey, we can make a dino sequel!" I give this movie an 8 out of 10 simply because its better than the first and way better than the 3rd, but a fun movie overall and if your disappointed then you'll be only losing a buck at family video lol.
