Many times throughout the film people are seeing firing guns without cycling the action. Most notably during the final battle at the mine, Sky fires her pump action shotgun repeatedly without cycling the action, and Quaid is seen firing an M-60 yet the belted rounds clearly are not advancing through the action, nor are any spent shells ejected.

Western dudes & babes in Daisy Dukes fight dinosaurs in modern-day Montana
15 December 2017 | by WuchakkSee all my reviews

RELEASED IN 2015 and directed by Ari Novak, "Cowboys vs Dinosaurs" chronicles events in modern-day Montana after an accidental explosion at a mine somehow unleashes dinosaurs to terrorize a small mountain town. Western dudes & babes in Daisy Dukes team-up to defend the populace.

Like 2010's "Triassic Attack," this is basically a TV-budgeted "Jurassic Park" taking place on the mainland rather than a tropical island. It's not as 'good' as "Triassic Attack" story-wise, but it has superior locations (breathtaking, actually) and women (just as breathtaking). Heather Foote and Sara Malakul Lane stand out in the female department; Casey Fitzgerald also has a notable role. The other women are lousy actors (term used loosely), not that cutie Heather is great, but she's okay and certainly pleasing to the eyes. Sara as the girl-next-door mine manager is a revelation.

Rib Hillis and John Freeman are effective as the 'cowboy' protagonists, in rivalry over Sky (Fitzgerald). They have a quality confrontation in the first act while Hillis and Fitzgerald have a surprisingly moving scene in the last act. I say "surprisingly" because you wouldn't necessarily expect good drama in a low-budget, slightly goofy dinosaur flick like this.

The dinosaur CGI is actually decent, but other CGI is lousy, like cave-ins, explosions and fire. The story needed the kinks worked out and some scenes are dubiously executed. These factors explain my relatively low grade.

THE MOVIE RUNS 89 minutes and was shot in Livingston and Emigrant, Montana. WRITERS: Anthony Fankhauser & Rafael Jordan. ADDITIONAL CAST: Eric Roberts has an entertaining bit part while Vernon Wells plays the mine mogul. Kelcey Watson is on hand as the black gunslinger.

GRADE: C (4.5/10)
