Audience Reviews for Komodo
From the writer of Anaconda and part of the FX team of Jurassic Park comes a a really solid creature effects with some nice moments and really good FX (by genre standards anyway). Nothing revolutionary, but what it does it does well.
If, like me, you are a big fan of cheap monster movies, then you should check out Komodo. A fairly respectable cast assemble to tell the story of a young boy forced to return to the site of his parents death. His psychiatrist thinks it will be good for him, little does she know some nasty Komodo dragons lay in wait, ready to rip some shit up. The characters are believable and the film manages to avoid many cliches by keeping the cast of characters small. The biggest plus to this film are the effects, they are exceptionally good for a film of this budget, especially considering it is around 10 years old now. It mixes CGI and puppetry, seamlessly.
There's not much to it, a inhabited island gets overrun by giant lizards, and the survivors have to fight their way out. There's no compelling drama, twists, or new ideas. The creature effects are fairly decent, there's plenty of action, and the film has a nice dark atmosphere.
