Derivative, cheap, dull with annoying characters, terrible writing and largely bad acting...but somehow not SyFy's worst
22 July 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I was expecting little from Attack of the Sabretooth, and got very little. Even with its major problems somehow it is not SyFy's worst or among them. The only real redeeming quality is Robert Carradine, who has been better but at least tries his best with bad lines and a clichéd character. The rest of the acting is awful, especially from the teenagers, ranging from bland to ridiculously over-the-top. In all honesty though they are not helped by the terribly stilted writing which does nothing to develop the characters or make us care about their situation, and how stereotypically and annoyingly their characters are written, at the end of the day you don't give a toss about these people. The story is also a mess, predictable, dully paced and also derivative of Jurassic Park but without the excitement and thrills. And visually Attack of the Sabretooth looks very cheap, with choppy editing and effects so bad and fake that you can't help but laugh. There is a lot of gore, but excessive and cheap-looking at that, part of the reason why the death scenes seemed so poorly done as well the lack of any real sense of terror or suspense. Overall, a really bad movie but despite its many problems I've seen worse. 2/10 Bethany Cox
