Lifeless, needlessly gory JURASSIC PARK rip-off about a mad scientist wanting to breed dinosaurs and whip out the humans. Second-rate effects combine with murky plot. This might not have been THAT bad . . . but the ending leaves viewer appalled. Diane Ladd is quite good however, as the crazy woman.
Carnosaur has a ridiculous plot about genetically manipulated and very hungry dinosaur escapes from a bioengineering company and reeks havoc on the local desert town. Literally nothing is worth remembering from this horrific mess. There's no characters worth caring about, there's no purpose in the plot, and it wasted your time. It has some really baffling scenes, like how our character is running away from a Dinosaur and he's enters a room with strobe lights. It look more like a nightclub scene for a comedy and I was literally waiting for the Dinosaur to do some ridiculous dance. I'm serious when I say this, every single character is poorly written in this movie. Like when a woman is screaming when she sees the a Dinosaur and only stops after the Dinosaur bites off her leg. Or another scene when some hippie character says "Greeting my green brother" to a Dinosaur, who knows what the writers were smoking to write that. This is easily one of the most poorly written movie to include Dinosaurs that I've ever seen.
The acting is so bad and I don't think have of the cast have ever acted in the business after this release. I find it ironic that Carnosaur was release in the same year as Jurassic Park and somehow managed to get an entire series made. The only thing more baffling is how poor the special effects are. Even my old plastic Dinosaur toys are more realistic than anything in this movie. I don't know about you, but I don't ever remember Dinosaurs ever having human arms when there eating there victims.
Carnosaur is not worth your time and Dinosaurs deserve to be in cetter weekend. Lets hope in the future these Dinosaur don`t become extinct in movies.
