"Age of the Dinosaurs" doesn’t disappoint!
You gotta love those dinosaur movies. I guess I’m a sucker for them. I find the special effects fascinating, and most importantly the fear these monsters brings to us humans. It’s all really intense. Age of Dinosaurs was basically a new twist on an old theme: dinosaurs running all over the place, terrorizing citizens. The director, Joseph J, Lawson put the plot into full gear from the get-go. A dinosaur in a lab experiment run by a biotechnology company called Geneti-Sharp, is resurrected from death, but he ends up chewing away at two people in the lab room. The reason for the experiments is all about museum and money. The day arrives when all the dinosaurs are displayed in their huge glass cases to an audience eager to see what the museum will eventually be about. That’s when all hell breaks loose, and these dinosaurs run amok. Treat Williams stars as the chief fireman who is present at the showing, but he too gets trapped in the chaos along with his teenage daughter. There’s even a moral to the story. The film has lots of suspense or laughter, depending on how old you are I guess. If you are squeamish about seeing people being flung in the air by dinosaurs, even eaten, then this movie is not for you or your children. But, heck, I really liked it. The sound effects were great as was the recreation of all kinds of these Jurassic-age creatures. Great entertainment for a rainy day! [Reviewed by Nancy Snipper]
