Storyline

The dinosaurs didn't go completely extinct when the asteroids hit 65 million years ago. Today, every ten thousandth person in the country is a dinosaur, evolved to be human-sized, wearing sophisticated solid-light holographic disguises to maintain the facade, getting stoned off regular cooking herbs like basil, rosemary and tarragon, and living by their own shadow government's laws; any human who stumbles upon them is to be immediately executed. Two dino private investigators, velociraptor Vincent Rubio and triceratops Ernie Watson, are hired by one of Ernie's old girlfriends to find out why her younger brother committed suicide, and discover a dino cult called Voice Of Progress that wants dinokind to come out of the closet and reclaim the planet. Written by Jeff Cross <blackjac_1998@yahoo.com>

interesting evolutionary turn
8 September 2006 | by wrlangSee all my reviews

Anonymous Rex is about smart dinosaurs living among humans in holographic costumes. They've been living with us for millions of years and are the dragons of legend. The story is about two PIs that track down a rogue dino organization called the voice of progress who is trying to change the world so dinos rule again. The dinos got high on various herbs, even the carnivorous ones. Some of the rogue cult vaporizes tarragon in a club to try and get the dinos to go on a rampage killing humans and exposing themselves so the dinos will need to come out and fight to protect themselves from the scared and angry humans. The directing was good along with the camera work and dialog. Acting was passable and helped keep the story moving. Subplot, one of the dinos daughters was a real human that wanted to be a dino.
