What we have here is a film that almost makes it to the 'so awful it's awesome' grade, but ends up actually just being awful. Somebody obviously watched Predator and Jurassic Park and thought I can combine those two excellent films and turn it into something that is really rubbish - yes even worse than Predators.

The story is simple, a team of the world's most inept special forces is sent to rescue a pretty bio-chemist (who provides one of the high points of the film by only wearing her underwear while she is being kidnapped) who has been forced by a terrorist (who laughs a lot in a poor diabolical fashion throughout the film) to create a new biological weapon. They sneak in Commando style by shooting everyone in sight, rescue the girl and are shot down on their way out and end up in the depths of an ancient crater that is a lost world with dinosaurs.

It has dinosaurs in it so I wasn't expecting much on the plot front, but I was hoping for some cool dinosaur action, unfortunately the CG is terrible and the dinosaur's animations look like a bad video game from the nineties. It's a low budget film and in shows in every respect, the effects are poor and the acting equally so. Now I don't have anything against low budget films, but low budget shouldn't necessarily mean low production values. Just for the fun of it here are a few examples: the special forces team take off in one aircraft and then parachute out of a completely different one and the shots of the jungle in the remote area that apparently has never been explored has roads in it.

So it's pretty rubbish, however it did do enough to keep me watching to the end, although that probably says more about my laziness to change the disk rather than any positive aspect to the film. In fairness though, it picked up a little when the nutter who originally found the lost world turns up. I really wouldn't recommend watching this.

Certainly not the worst movie I've seen, Jurassic Attack is badly let down by the use of the special effects which seem to be 100% CG. Some practical effects would have helped particularly when humans and dinosaurs are in close proximity. The biggest issue being at times the dinosaurs seemed to be floating slightly above the ground instead of stepping (or running over) it. This is where you are supposed to be drawn into the action but instead it just becomes a 'really??' moment. The story held together reasonably well, but was wrapped up much too quickly. At only 80 minutes in length there was some scope for adding another couple of minutes to explain what happened next and wrap up the characters. There were no oscar performances here but not all of the acting was as bad as you would expect. With its practical effects 'Extinction Jurassic Predators', although far from perfect was a better movie experience.

Good enough if you like this kind of video. Although some of the acting was a bit wooden. Have watched a lot better.

This is also marketed under the title "Rise of the Dinosaurs." In our opening scene a plane goes down in the land of the dinosaurs. We then jump five years later as a team of military men are on a rescue mission. Their goal is to save a kidnapped chemical-biologist from terrorists in the fictional country of Verdi in the Amazon basin. The bad guys have developed a new chemical or biological agent that can be launched in a rocket.

That mission would take The Expendables 2 hours to complete, but ours does it in under ten minutes, and unfortunately a bit sloppy as their CG helicopter gets shot down by a CG RPG only to land where they will be hunted by CG raptors and a CG T-Rex. In addition to having to find their way out of the jungle, they have with them the terrorist leader and meet a professor who is studying the dinosaurs. He would rather see them dead too. Meanwhile back at headquarters two very bad actors are arguing over the next step of the mission.

The dinosaurs, helicopter, gun fire, flames were all Asylum grade CG, if that good. The acting was hit and miss, with it mostly being a miss. Alicia Ziegler and Natascha Berg provide the token eye candy.

Looked like more of a kids movie if they can get the rating down to PG-13.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Rated "R" for man eating dinosaurs. Minor language such as "being a d***."

I saw this today on TV in China and thought it was a old 1990s film. The Dinosaurs are like cartoons , obviously not in the same space as the humans so not for a moment did I feel any danger for the humans. Now I see its a 2012 film !Good story , interesting characters but the computer animated cartoon dinosaurs make it a 1990 model. One children under 10 will enjoy.
