OK, this review is based on the 25 minutes of pure boredom that I suffered through when I sat down to watch "Jurassic Prey", and I just had to give up after that, because I had completely lost the will to witness a single minute more of the nonsense that was "Jurassic Prey".
First of all, there was nothing that even remotely resembled a cohesive storyline. The movie is about a group of people who rob a bank, albeit you don't see this incident at all, as I guess the budget didn't allow for that. But wait, then there is a most horribly fake dinosaur stalking around in the area as well. A dinosaur? It just makes no sense what so ever.
The acting in "Jurassic Prey" was as to be expected from a movie such as this. And actually within the first 5 minutes of the movie, it is already established what kind of acting experience you will be in for. Just watch the scene with the two men wearing shades and the naked guy in the theater, enough said. The acting was wooden and questionable at best.
Then lets move on to the dinosaur. Correction, guy in an awfully fake and laughable rubber bodysuit. That dinosaur was so poorly made and so fake that even a blind man would go "for real?" It was so poor that it actually had me laughing hard every time I saw it. And it made absolutely no sense whatsoever that a dinosaur was walking around and just randomly eating people as it sneaked up on them. Yeah, a dinosaur skilled in stealth, it was just that epic! And to add insult to injury, then the scenes where the dinosaur tears into and eats people was just as fake as the dinosaur suit itself. Actually it is so poor that it is worth to see.
And did no one edit this movie or even have half a mind to think that if you have guys with shades, then let's at least put in an effort to have the film crew not be reflected in the lenses of the shades? It was just such an amateurish mistake to make. And it happened more than once during the 25 minutes I managed to suffer through.
It is rare that I give up on a movie, but it does happen every now and then when I sit down to watch a movie which is actually unbearable to watch. And "Jurassic Prey" was one such movie. And I can with all honesty say that I am not even going to bother with giving this movie a second chance. I have seen enough in the first 25 minutes to last me a lifetime.
