“Komodo vs. Cobra is a horrendous movie in every regard. However, there’s a lot of fun to be had in how horrendous Komodo vs. Cobra is willing to be. Terrible dialogue, some of the worst CG and green screen I’ve ever seen, and a plot that even a third-grader would reject all add up for a terribly fun time.” Bill’s Movie Emporium
” …as these bargain bucket, straight-to-the-SyFy channel creature features go, I’ve seen much worse. It’s got some nice location shots, the bloodless deaths are laughably cheesy and leading man Michael Pare makes for a charismatic dual-pistol wielding hero. Plus, it has a recurring theme that sounds like John Barry’s James Bond motif…” BloodGuts UK
“Much of the running time is taken up by the activists yapping away and to be quite honest, you’ll find yourself fighting not to hit the fast forward button to get to the monster mash action. The problem with that is that even the monster mash action can’t save this turkey. It’s poorly done, obscured by bad CGI fire, and it makes up maybe two minutes of the running time of this feature-length piece of poop.” DVD Talk
“The effects were pretty bad (though not quite as bad as some of the stuff you catch on Sci-Fi at an ungodly hour) but I was surprised by just how little was actually done with the monsters […] What saved the flick from being a complete sh*tfest was Michael Paré.” The Video Vacuum
