Humankind has just made a major scientific breakthrough, to
biotechnically re-create dinosaurs and re-introduce them to a strictly
monitored eco-system ... and then everything goes to hell because
humankind has also decided to launch another war, and not just any war but
World War III, and all scientific progress suddenly becomes secondary to
bombing things ...
Two years later: Steve (Jay Worthy) and his small
group of survivors have weathered the war in a gouvernmentally appointed
bunker, but now the supplies fun low, so it's decided that three of
Steve's ranks - Drew (Mark Haldor), Mick (Clint Gordon), who's also the
father of the group's yet unborn baby, and Mia (Antonia Whillans) - will
make an expedition to the outside world and try to restock. Thing is,
everybody was so distressed about the war that nobody wasted much thought
on the re-created dinosaurs, and when letting his trio out, Steve also
lets a few dinosaurs in, who are quick to kill him, his daughter (Sarah
Alexandra Marks), and then try to hunt down the others as well - and right
when Mick's wife (Chelsea Greenwood) goes into labour ...
outside, our heroic restock mission soon runs into three more survivors
(Stephen Staley, Chrissie Wunna, Emmanuel Akinkuolie), which is cool as
they can fill them in on the state of the world as such, plus there's
always strength in numbers - but these numbers are seriously decimated
once the dinosaurs attack ...
Now to be very clear, this movie
doesn't even try to re-invent cinema, instead walks a path well-beaten at
least since Jurassic Park - but if you're into slightly mindless
dino-action with plenty of people being swallowed whole by giant lizards,
screaming women, and wild chases, then this one's for you: Basically it's
a throwback to 1990s B-moviedom as it's just solid, no-frills action
cinema, with not much subtext maybe, but the visual effects work is
actually pretty good for a movie of its ilk and price-tag, and the whole
thing's well-enough paced to suck one in for its runtime at least, and
while it might not be the most memorable movie in the world, it's sure
good fun to watch.
