Gabe and his daughter, Jade, are getting ready to spend a rare day together. He takes her to a fancy conference where they learn the CEO of a business has been recreating dinosaurs. Things go askew when one of the recreations busts out.

Selina’s Point of View:
Know what’s sad? I saw Jurassic World (2015) today, in the theater. I then went about my business, came home and had to watch this take on a dinosaur movie.

Jurassic World (2015) was outstanding. It was hilarious and Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Parks and Recreation, Bride Wars) 100% killed it. Age of Dinosaurs however…

Would it be an acceptable review if I just head-desked seven or eight times and recorded the sound for posting purposes?

We all know The Asylum is a crap production company that lucks out with a “so bad it’s good” movie once in a while. So when that name is affiliated with a film, expectations are already low. This one had to be one of the worst.

The actors were beyond terrible. I kept wondering if they just did the whole movie in one take because if they had cut screw ups or bad scenes, I don’t think there’d have been anything left.

On any normal day, this movie would be terrible. On a day when a real dinosaur movie has just been seen, Age of Dinosaurs is abysmal.

Don’t waste your time.

Cat’s Point of View:
I’ll admit that I enjoy a good B movie now and again. I especially love the ones that are so horrible they’re awesome. I’m also a dinosaur fan. The combination of such might lead you to believe that this movie was right up my alley.

Unfortunately, I think that this film fell short of the mark. There wasn’t enough humor in it, and beyond that it was just… missing something. The actors seemed confused more than they were terrified and some of the dialogue and character interaction was just awkward.

The movie tried real hard, however. The dinosaurs weren’t the best CGI, but they at least didn’t look cartoony.

I’ve been known to leave a cheesy Syfy Channel movie on as background noise while working on other things. I’m pretty sure I would have changed the channel on this one.
