    I recorded it last night and I'm watching it right now (DVRs are the best).

    It has every military cliche you could imagine I work alone. I don't deal well with authority. I'm not authorized to tell you that. Officially, we don't exist.

    The animation is passable, but not so hot. They shoot the dinosaurs, and you see the bullets hitting them and splashing blood, but there are no bullet holes. And the animals don't even flinch when they're hit.

    But overall, I've seen worse. At least it's better than Matrix:Reloaded. In every way. :mamoru:

    Did anybody else see it?

    Yeah, low budget doesn't have to mean low quality. They would have done better to save money on the cast and spend it on better writing.

    I was planning to watch it, but got distracted and missed it. Apparently I didn't miss much, though.

    Sounds like a slight cheese fest but if you guys recommend it I'll definitely use my Netflix account to obtain the DVD. :mamoru:

    It was worth watching once just for kicks. Definitely not worth renting the DVD.

    That movie was horrible- the only part worth watching was whenever the raptors would attack they played this cheesy ass music and it was good for a laugh.

    I really expected better quality from the scifi channel. I even expected better from Lorenzo Lamas. :mamoru:

    That might be the understatement of the year. One would think the acting bar would be raised when alongside the likes of Brascomb Richmond. :rofl:

    ....and NO I wasn't a huge Renegade fan.

    I actually liked Renegade. :rofl:

    Lamas isn't really a horrible actor. He's not great, but his problem is that he's not discriminating in the scripts he takes.
