Komodo vs. Cobra Reviews
This is just a bad B movie - from screenplay, through directing, special effects, and especially acting! Michael Paré as Mike A. Stoddard, Ryan McTavish as Jerry Ryanm, Renee Talbert as Carrie, Jerri Manthey as Sandra, Michelle Borth as Dr. Susan Richardson, Ted Monte as Ted, Glori-Anne Gilbert as Darla. Rene Rivera as Dirk, Jay Richardson as Dr. Richardson, Rod McCary as General Bradley, Roark Critchlow as Major Garber and Paul Logan as Major Frank had no idea what were they doing! So many names without a real actor being between them... unbelievably untalented bunch! Everything in this movie could be described with one word: pathetic.
Please, don't waste time on this, not worth a minute of your time.
A group of nature activist has heard rumors of an island in the Pacific Ocean where the government has been conducting genetic experiments. They charter a boat to the island only to discover that the island is abandoned. As they investigate the island, they uncover humongous man-eating reptiles. The activists will need to quickly obtain their proof of the island?s experiments and safely return to the boat without becoming dinner.
?The monstrous behemoths you have seen on this tape are not the effects of Hollywood effects wizards.?
Jim Wynorski, director of Bone Eater, House on Hooter Hill, The Witches of Breastwick 1 & 2, Sub Zero, Busty Cops 1 & 2, and The Bare Wench Project, delivers Komodo versus Cobra. The storyline for this picture is classic science fiction. The special effects were awful and were worse than the graphics you may find in current video games. The acting was mediocre to poor as the cast includes Michael Pare, Michelle Borth, Renee Talbert, and Jerri Manthey.
?I don?t think this is a good idea. Do you think we can trust this guy??
I happened to come across this film on Showtime while flicking through the channels on Labor Day. You would think with Wynorski?s directorial history, and the impressively attractive cast, that this film would be soft porn mixed with giant monsters; unfortunately, the film did not even have soft porn going for it. This film was awful with mediocre special effects and awful acting. I recommend skipping this movie.
Turn off the brain and have a laugh at the crappy CGI!
The story follows a group of nature activists who are traveling to a South Pacific Island in order to blow the whistle on a military project called "Project Carnivore". What they didn't count on was the project going horrendously wrong and creating a number of extremely large Komodo dragons and Cobras who are intent on chomping their way through any humans they encounter. The group, along with their chartered boat captain and one of the project scientists, must avoid the creatures and escape the island before the military blows it to hell.
The plot would have been ok if there was even the slightest bit of background story relating to the project. Instead we are told that the project was to create larger crops and animals to end world hunger and that's it. You have to wonder what they were expecting to happen! Anybody who watches this film only wants one thing; some decent creature action. Unfortunately the only thing we get is a couple of people being eaten by the creatures, who all look absolutely terrible due to woeful CGI. The acting is the worst I have ever seen, as is the direction. Sub plots are touched upon and then left alone, the characters are incredibly stupid, the military seem to be bloodthirsty killers, the climax is laughable and someone should point out to the group that their guns don't work!
Komodo Vs Cobra is the worst SyFy feature that I have ever seen and that is some feat. Nothing about it is worth watching and it is in no way entertaining and at no point does the Komodo ever fight the Cobra!
