100 Million BC is a 2008 American sci-fi action film about a scientist who leads a team of Navy SEALs back in time to the Cretaceous Period; he hopes to rescue the first team he sent back during the 1940s. Things go very badly when he accidentally brings a giant dinosaur back to modern-day Los Angeles.
Directed by Griff Furst [as Louie Myman] (Nightmare Shark; Cold Moon; Trailer Park Shark; Lake Placid III, Swamp Shark, Arachnoquake; et al) from a screenplay written by associate producer Paul Bales. Edited and produced by David Michael Latt. Executive produced by David Rimawi.
The Asylum production stars Michael Gross, Christopher Atkins, Greg Evigan, Marie Westbrook, Phil Burke, Wendy Carter, Geoff Meed and Stephen Blackehart.
“Whilst the general story is good (excellent linking with The Philadelphia Experiment), awesome casting (some pull here!) and special effects being of a “typical” B-Movie standard, the pace of the movie slowly drags down your enjoyment, almost to the point of boredom.” The B Club
“… a lot of really bad acting, too many characters that you just don’t care about, the worst and most inconsistent effects I’ve ever laid eyes on (even when going by The Asylum’s low standards), a climax that overstays its welcome, and some glaring problems on a script level all contributed to lowering my enjoyment of it…” The B-Movie Shelf
“The pacing is so weird, giving us a bunch of random kills early on and then nothing for a while. Good to see that the raptor can take out three people, while the T-Rex can only take out one! Random other moments include a guy killed by a sea monster that shows up for one scene and those stupid carnivorous plants that were also in Journey.
“Some of the action scenes look shaky and messy, it is difficult to see what is attacking. Probably that saved some of the special effect budget. As a sci-fi B-movie, this is not so bad but fun to watch. Also, the plot is above par usual Asylum efforts, although it creates some big-time paradoxes in the end.” Shameless Pile of Stuff
