B-Movie mash up of "Running Man" and "Jurassic Park"
28 August 2018 | by one-nine-eightySee all my reviews

First things first, this is not as bad as some of the reviews make it out to be. It's not the worst low-budget film I've seen by a long way. I actually found myself enjoying it in parts too.

In the future convicted murderers get the chance to 'volunteer' for a reality TV programme which mixes "Battle Royal", "The Running Man" and "The Hunger Games" with "Jurassic Park". The 'volunteers' are immersed in a virtual reality landscape and their bodies are hooked up to lethal injections; they have to navigate their way out of a dinosaur themed manhunt, and manage to be the last person standing - if they die in virtual reality, the lethal injection is administered in real life. Surviving as the last person rewards them with a pardon for their crimes and gives them their freedom back. Some parts of civilization aren't happy with the games and protest, some people are avid fans and have made the games a part of their staple celebrity obsessed life. The line-up for this year is announced, a mix of psychopaths, cannibals, and sociopaths. Amongst them, one man who swears his innocent and is using the games as his last attempt for freedom. The story follows this 'innocent' man as he has to deal with his fellow volunteers as well as the dinosaurs in a fight not just for freedom, but his life - will he survive?

A lot of the reviews on here lambast the terrible CGI, and I won't lie, I have seen better - but I have also seen a hell of a lot worse so I can forgive it. Another criticism I've read is that the acting wasn't great, it's not gritty or authentic - I won't lie, it wasn't, but I've seen a hell of a lot worse, from bigger named actors too (the weakest character in this for me was the use of Joy - I didn't believe her threat and her 'smacked-arse-face' just annoyed me. Another negative review is that the plot is poor - ok, it wasn't out and out original, but I've seen worse rip-offs of films delivered worse; at least this film has the manners to mash-up films rather than directly rip them off. In general I found this film ok, I've seen better, and I've seen worse. It was a watchable film for a lazy day that wasn't offensive and didn't make me feel like I'd lost 2 hours of my life. Sure there were plot holes and inaccuracies, cheap special effects and camp acting, but it also had a charm to it, a decent pace and was totally harmless - hell, culturally it also has the potential to ask questions about celebrity culture, human ethics, entertainment, law and punishment, and a whole lot more - but it doesn't delve into them on account of it being a B-movie. I'm going to give this a 5 out of 10.
