Storyline

A team of scientists working on a remote dig site find the buried body of an enormous monster, perfectly preserved even after 200 million years. As soon as the beast is uncovered, however, an alien spacecraft suddenly appears above them and brings the monster back to life! The creature immediately sets about levelling the surrounding urban landscape and shrugging off the best firepower the military can throw at it. A lone scientist, working on decrypting an ancient set of hieroglyphics, may be on the verge of finding the aliens' weak point, but will it be too late?

Good for a laugh.
29 September 2001 | by dsmith847See all my reviews

Between the almost transparent special effects and bad acting this movie reminded me of the old fashioned japanese monster movies. All it needed was bad dubbing. Apparently the creature is an ancient dinosaur from another planet fulfilling some sort of doomsday prophecy. It almost seems like it was poorly made on purpose to give it cult value. It is worth seeing with a group of friends, so you can all lob sarcastic comments at it.
