Nothing becomes a Baldwin more than slumming. Alec was the only reason to watch what Hollywood did to Dr. Seuss, and Daniel is so seedy as a private eye in Anonymous Rex that the local birds smack their beaks.
I really kind of enjoyed this. Not what I was expecting at all. The idea of dinosaurs surviving and living among people raises many questions, none of which go answered. It brings about familiarities with Men in Black and Alien Nation. Luckily, it falls into a weird void of comedic, cheesy, sci-fi noir. Our protagonist is one of these dinosaurs used to "silence" human witnesses. Immediately this causes a lot of interest, as we have a character that essentially kills humans, most of whom are just in the wrong place at the wrong time. At the same time the film does well to make us empathise with their plight. He is also a private detective, which leads to some rather knowing voice-overs. The best thing is that he is a conflicted character, one that kind of believes that the dinosaurs should stop living in the shadows, and rise up against the humans. Obviously the effects aren't up to much and they will generate chuckles. The science is out the window, just go with it. This will be a great film for B Movie fans, as it doesn't take itself too seriously, but doesn't hide its shortcomings with over-the-top winks at the camera. I also enjoyed the techniques employed for the dinosaur destruction flashback (using toys), and the visual representations to the different pheromones.
Interesting plot, poor execution.
