In the opening shot, the convoy starts out with a jeep, troop carrier, semi-truck with the dinosaur trailer, and two jeeps at the tail end. Over the following shots, the convoy changes to having one jeep at the end, then two jeeps at the end, then only one jeep again, and finally two jeeps again when the ambush occurs. See more »
This is one of the most hilariously bad movies I have ever had the privilege to see.
I watched this on DVD with a bunch of friends one Friday night and we just couldn't stop laughing from start to finish.
The story is simple enough: terrorists hijack a convoy they think is carrying weapons grade uranium, but it's actually carrying a bunch of man-eating dinosaurs. Easy mistake to make. Cue a startlingly incompetent team of Army Special Forces to tackle the prehistoric beasts. They are led by Colonel Rance, played by Scott Valentine; a man who seems to have perfected 'Smell the fart' acting, as advocated by Joey in Friends.
There's plenty of gore and an awful lot of shooting, but unfortunately Rance's team seem to have a problem aiming their weapons in the general direction of a horde of giant, lumbering monsters. Also, the lights always seem to flicker and go out whenever a Velociraptor attacks (preumably so we can't see how bad the creature effects are).
Having said all that, we all had a great deal of fun betting on who was going to get their head bitten off next.
As a Jusassic Park / Aliens style action adventure this movie stinks worse than a dinosaur's crotch, but as ludicrous, tongue-in-cheek entertainment it's a roaring success.
