Don't bother...

Right...

Well, I knew beforehand already that when I sat down to watch a movie such as "Z/Rex: The Jurassic Dead", then I would be in for a questionable affair. But still, I decided to watch it for two reasons. The first and foremost important factor is that this was a pseudo-zombie movie after all, and anything zombiesque and I am there. Secondly, there was a chance, however slim, that it might actually turn out to be so campy that it would be enjoyable.

Turns out, it wasn't...

Do yourself a favor and stay well clear of the 2017 movie titled "Z/Rex: The Jurassic Dead", because it is abysmal. Yeah, abysmal, that is the best word to summarize this movie with a single word.

There was so much green screen used, and it wasn't even properly made, because it looked so god awful and so fake that it was laughable. And even a blind person would stop, turn his head and go 'oh no they didn't!'. It was that bad.

As for the acting, well let's just be blunt and say that this isn't going to harvest any kind of awards. For the most parts, then acting was still a work in progress I suppose. Mia Paris (or Mia Klosterman) was actually the only one whom put on a memorable performance throughout this entire movie. And she could do nothing to salvage this wreck. And how Andy Haman got cast for this movie was simply beyond my comprehension.

The characters in the movie were just about as deep and interesting as soggy cardboard, and they had the dialogue to match that as well. So it was sort of semi-hilarious to watch the actors and actresses stumble through this horrible script and deliver atrocious dialogue.

The CGI and special effects were ludicrous. Everything was just so bad to witness and it makes you cringe from time to time.

"Z/Rex: The Jurassic Dead" is by no means worth the time, money or effort. Some of us suffered through the entire movie so you don't have to.
