Goofs

When asked if "he was a pilot", Michael Pare' answers "Airborne Rangers, Gulf War". While some individual Rangers may have their pilot's license, Rangers do not, as part of their jobs, pilot aircraft. The answer is a complete non-sequitor. Pare' later says he "Got his discharge at Pearl"; Pearl harbor is a naval base. Army personnel would be discharged from Schofield Barracks, or perhaps Fort DeRussy, NOT Pearl Harbor. See more »

Giant monster mayhem...on a budget
1 November 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

KOMODO VS. COBRA is another Z-grade slice of movie monster entertainment from prolific B-movie king Jim Wynorski. This one's a bottom-of-the-barrel production that throws together all the elements familiar from Wynorski's movies: bad acting, cardboard characters, top-heavy starlets in revealing attire, and massive CGI monsters that look like they belong in an old Playstation game.

This one's a kind of spiritual successor to the awfulness that was BOA VS. PYTHON, as it follows almost exactly the same storyline. On a remote tropical island (shades of JURASSIC PARK, which this film so wants to be), dastardly scientists have been genetically experimenting on the wildlife, leading to a pair of giant monsters wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting tourists. What it all boils down to is an average action-adventure template with characters running around and emoting and occasionally being bloodlessly eaten by the beasties.

The special effects are very poor here, although not the poorest I've seen, but the monster action could have been worse, I suppose. There are a few memorably icky moments, like the bit with the giant leeches, which is well achieved. Otherwise, it's business as usual for the B-movie genre.
