Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

About the best one can say about this third entry in Roger Corman's Carnosaur series is that it isn't as terrible as the original, and it doesn't rip off Aliens as blatantly as the second one did. Otherwise, everything else is as cheap and uninspired as ever, including the recycled animatronics. Scott Valentine is an odd choice to play the leader of an anti-terrorist squad that sets out to recover a shipment of stolen dinosaurs. Most of the first half takes place in one warehouse, with endless stalking down crumbling hallways. Things pick up slightly when the action moves on to a ship, though it's here that the influence of Aliens becomes ever more apparent.
