Oh My GOD!! It may bite!
14 July 2004 | by carlos_pimentelSee all my reviews

Oh My GOD!! It may bite!With it's awfully computer generated jaws!!

The first thing about this movie: It's Awful!!!!! Those Komodo Dragons looked like CARTOONS!!...oh, did I say Komodo dragons? They looked like giant grey-colored Wall lizards to me!!...and they roar like dinosaurs!! Do Komodo Dragons roar like that?

The second thing are the actors. They're acting was awful!! And the dialogue don't ask! And one thing, did those ever finished they're munition! I think they were infinite.

And the third thing: This movie is the King of the Bad-movies for me.

My Rating 1 out of 10.
