Goofs

Col. Sherman tells Deputy Barnes that she'll be "...filing death certificates for the whole county!" Alaska does not have counties, it has boroughs. There are eighteen boroughs, and the land that is outside those is called the "Unorganized Borough" and contains more than half of the state's land but only 13% of the population. The Unorganized Borough has no government and is larger than any other US state. See more »

Quotes

Claire: Would you look at yourselves? A truck driver, a DJ, a retired colonel, and a hillbilly.
Haas: Hey, who you calling a hillbilly?
Claire: Haas, you made your own fur jacket.

Not bad at all!
22 February 2009 | by ElswetSee all my reviews

This is far superior to what I have come to expect from the Sci Fi Channel Originals. The Wyvern is fabulous, and the dialog is actually quite realistic. This is superb as far as the Sci Fi Channel movies go, and if this is what we can expect this next generation of SFOs to be like, this should be an enjoyable decade of M4TV Creature Features. Also, it was nice to see Elaine Miles (Northern Exposure) again. She always was one of my favorites.

This film is a real surprise in the actual film quality, sure, but more so in the quality of performances, dialog, screenplay, and actual plot...but what surprises me most (as if that weren't enough) is the CGI of the Wyvern. WOW! The CGI was good for anyone, but especially for the Sci Fi Channel. The Lord of the rings this isn't, but for a Sci Fi Original movie, this isn't bad at all.

It rates a 8.8/10 on the Made For TV Scale.

It rates a 7.4/.10 on the Movie Scale from...
