    It doesn't all work, but there's some pretty funny stuff in here; a pleasant surprise.

    ★★½ Watched 17 Jun, 2015

    A genetically spliced hybrid of a film that borrows elements of characters from other films but never quite forms any fully fledged characters of it's own. The dinosaur stuff is fun and the finale is a crowd-pleaser for sure, but when they're not on screen, the movie is total dead-zone of ideas built on reminding everyone of "Jurassic Park." It also doesn't help that the new ideas (hybrid dinos, training raptors, and using them as military weapons) it does have are "too goofy."

    The Claudia Jennings show! It's almost as if she is acting in a different movie, a better movie. This movie though has a lot to offer, really lively cinematography, an excess of 70's flair, and a lot of charm. For all the goofy voice-over work and fun montages set to 50's Rock N' Roll, there are at least 3 dramatic scenes that really illustrate Jennings' chops. All in all, this is a really charming movie.
