However the fuel of the generator is finishing and Foster does not have the intention of rescuing the ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARG!
21 February 2004 | by lottatitlesSee all my reviews

OK, that's it! When are we going to demand of the Sci-Fi channel that they stop making this crap?! Komodo was fair, but THIS....IS....CRAP! It's an excuse for a little T&A and a lot of bad acting, writing, and directing. It's not even worth a review except I'm hoping this will save a lot of people some money should they decide to rent it. This movie has NO REDEEMING QUALITIES!
