Looks like a Sci-Fi channel original movie
29 July 2009 | by equazcionSee all my reviews

I can't say I got too far into this movie. If you've ever seen a Sci-Fi original movie, that should give you some idea of what you're in for.

The CGI dinosaurs are laughable; they all look like cartoon cut-outs, which is unforgivable considering the current state of CGI technology. The characters are cliché. The blood looks like raspberry jam. This wreaks of a low-budget production all around, and worse, it wreaks of low effort. The acting was better than the film's other aspects, but could not possibly hope to redeem it.

I don't like writing bad reviews when I feel a genuine effort has been made, and/or that there was care for the material, but this feels entirely derivative (even keeping in mind that it's a remake) and hastily slapped together, like a cheap TV movie to fill an empty time slot.

Just to be clear, no, this isn't a fun B movie that's aware of itself. It seems to want you to take it seriously, as ridiculous as that request may seem to the viewer. I give it 3 stars to offer the benefit of the doubt, as I was too bored to watch very much of it.
