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? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

How Can a Producer Invest Money in This Lame Mediocrity?
1 May 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

"2001 Yonggary" is one of those films so bad that becomes funny to watch. The plot is a lame combination of "Gozilla" with many sci-fi from the 50 's in an Ed Wood style. The story and the screenplay are ridiculous with the most of the situations dumb and messy. The dialogues are stupid and the characters are incredibly dumb. The acting is awful and the special effects are laughable. The question is how can a producer invest money in this lame mediocrity? My vote is two.

Title (Brazil): "Réptil" ("Reptile")
