Well, OK so this movie was bad but at least not in the way I expected it to be. I was expecting one big "Jurassic Park" ripoff but the movie really isn't being one. It's a movie that just also happens to feature a dinosaur in it but other than that, there are very little similarities between these both movies.

But having said that, this still is a pretty bad movie to watch. The one thing that bugged me the most was that it didn't really seemed to have a main character in it. Instead the movie follows a whole bunch of different characters, that we just never really get to know and the movie keeps on introducing new characters, pretty much till half way through the movie. It also definitely prevents you from ever getting into this movie and it even makes the story somewhat confusing, though for these sort of the movies the stories of course aren't exactly the best written ones to begin with already and often are completely secondary to the movie.

The best thing I can say about this movie is that it at least knows what it is and doesn't pretend to be anything good or clever. You can tell that most people simply had fun while making this movie and didn't took it very serious at all.

Also I must say that I very much prefer the old fashioned special effects, complete with fake looking puppets and a guy in a suit, over some incredibly fake looking CGI effects, that you are likely to see in movies of this sort now days.

Don't expect much gore or other great horror elements though. It's all pretty tame, especially by todays standards. It also really doesn't ever manage to create a good atmosphere and tension for the movie, though the movie itself is not all that bad looking, also especially when considering its budget.

I honestly did not hated watching this movie and actually thought it was quite entertainment at parts and in some ways but I just can't rate it as a good movie though, since it does a lot of stuff so incredible bad!
