Storyline

In the Isla Damas, a group of soldiers lands on the island and are attacked and murdered by a Komodo dragon. Two men, Hanson and Jason, leave a building surrounded by an electric fence to seek out survivors. They run back to the building and a woman, Rebecca "Becky"), who is the daughter of the scientist. Nathan Phipps, deactivates the fence. Phipps and his assistant Dawn Porter contact the Chief of a Naval Base at Hawaii, Foster, to discuss the dragons that are genetically-engineered by them to produce food that have turned into war machines by Foster. Meanwhile, a casino is robbed in Hawaii by the thieves Drake, Tiffany, and Reece that flee to Damas using the pilot of helicopter Jack. Soon they meet Phipps and Dawn shooting at a Komodo dragon and they learn that they need to team-up with the scientists to survive. Further, the contact with a Komodo turns the person onto a zombie. 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

Goofs

When Professor Phipps and his companions are confronted at the disabled jeep by the giant komodo dragon, he starts shooting with a bolt-action rifle. He fires on semi-automatic (i.e. one shot per trigger pull). Bolt-action rifles are incapable of such fire. Firing one requires the shooter to operate the bolt in order to eject the spent cartridge casing and chamber a fresh round. Special effects were used to simulate semi-automatic fire. See more »

Drake: Well if you're that thirsty honey, let's go.
Tiffany: I hate you all.

Hilarious!
4 December 2005 | by straight_shooter_18See all my reviews

I just have to comment on this movie! I actually watched it with 2 of my friends and we couldn't help laugh at every single scene in it. Its a disaster as an action movie, but as a comedy this movie is an A-class one...There are just too many plot holes, you don't know where to start, and the komodo looks much like a clay lizard incorporated in the movie using stop motion animation. It just runs after the characters and they keep shooting at it (with unlimited clips in their guns by the way). When the characters are stuck in a corner, it will stand at a distance and enjoy the line of fire as bullets Pierce its scales, but if they are running away and shooting at it, it continues to run after them for some reason and the bullet holes never appear in its scales yet again for some reason and then a zombie appears at the end of the movie and you have no idea where it came from or what the hell its doing in the movie!!....Just take it from me, if you are ridiculously bored or drunk, gather some friends and watch this movie....for the laughs, and for the breasts scene!
