This was phenomenally bad...
10 January 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Granted, with a movie named "Reptisaurus" and having the cover that it did, then I must admit that my hopes and expectations for this 2009 movie weren't particularly high.

But still, I sat down to watch it, as once in a while these creature features turns out to be rather enjoyable. However, "Reptisaurus" was definitely not one of those movies. This was laughable at best.

First of all, the storyline was so simple that it could have been written by a fifth grader. There were next to no proper contents to the storyline presented here by writer Jeremiah Campbell and director Christopher Ray. If you manage to endure through the entire movie, which is a massive ordeal, then you just essentially switch off your brain and sit back and watch the movie.

The acting in the movie was as expected - mediocre at best. There weren't actually any outstanding performances. But I believe that the actors and actresses weren't to blame here, it was the questionable character gallery and the shoddy dialogue that were weighing them down and holding them back. I mean, you wash up on a remote island, and suddenly you don't recognize the whirring sound of helicopter rotor blades, wait, what? Seriously? Yeah, the writing for this movie was exactly that stupid.

This being a creature feature, and one with a reptilian creature at that, then you would need to have a proper CGI department to bring the creature to life on the screen in a noteworthy and believable manner. The people working on "Reptisaurus" didn't have that department, and the CGI was hilariously bad. It was seriously some of the worst CGI animation of a creature in a movie I have seen in a long time. And even the performers weren't even buying into it.

"Reptisaurus" is not worth the time, money or effort, and you might as well give it a wide berth. Some of us suffered through it, so you don't have to.

My rating for this movie is a mere two out of ten stars. And this movie will never be played a second time in my house.
