Goofs

Dixie and Vincent are tied up by a lifeboat when the hydra boards the ship. The camera cuts to a different scene. When we next see the lifeboat, there are bloodstained hand-prints on it and shredded ropes. A few seconds later, though, both Dixie and Vincent are shown running around the ship with no blood on their hands. See more »

A better than average SCI-FI channel creature feature.
17 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

HYDRA begins with four rich hunters that have paid a large sum of money to hunt people on an uncharted island, but unknown to everyone there is something on the island that has a taste for human flesh, a creature of myth know as the hydra.

Although I reckon this is not part of SCI-FI's man eater series, if it is its certainly one of the best ones I've seen, the film is actually really good when I look at the last few SCI-FI channel originals I've seen, because you get YETI which was a quickly slammed together mess, there was VIPERS that was a complete rush job and you had GRIZZLY RAGE that was neither of the aforementioned but it was crap anyway.

This film was the exception to other SCI-FI monster yawns, it had better CGI effects, it had a good story to it, even though there was minimal character development and no real back story as to where the HYDRA came from or how it ended up on the island, the dialog was actually pretty sharp and not as ridiculous as in other SCI-FI channel films.

My only complaint I have is the score, despite that it sounds similar to the score of another SCI-FI original called KOMODO VS. COBRA, its very loud and sometimes it almost muffles the dialog, you can also hear the sound of really noisy trumpets that tend to make you cringe, just to give an idea of how loud the score is.

Otherwise its a better than average SCI-FI original creature feature.
