When a meteor shower rains down outside Los Angeles, Lars and Jonas, two friends stuck in tired, boring lives, head out to find one and strike it rich. After recovering one, they start being stalked by Terrordactyls, ancient flying reptiles, that launch a full-on assault on the city. They go on the run, trying to survive, where the unlikely heroes, along with Candice, a tough-and-sexy bartender, Valerie, her sultry roommate, and Sampson, a constantly drunk and sassy ex-marine, soon discover that there's more to the meteor than meets the eye. They must learn to put their differences aside, and fight back to make the Terrordactyls extinct once again. Written by Don Bitters III

Space-dinosaur-lizard-terror-aliens.... oh whatever! They came from outer space to reclaim their planet (apparently)
12 February 2018 | by one-nine-eightySee all my reviews

The premise for this story was obviously stolen from classical cinema, possibly Ishiro Honda's Godzilla films or films of that ilk. A space dinosaur, in this case a Pterodactyl, attacks earth and causes death and destruction in its wake. It's up to a bunch of losers and has-been's to save the world from this menace.

I like low-budget, cheesy, and indie. This isn't the best by a long way, but it's a welcome break from all the shark based comedy-horrors I've seen lately. The acting is ham and cheese which is good, by the way it's delivered the actors know that this isn't a serious film which needs to be played straight. I think the script was meant to be funnier but that falls flat on its face if it is the case. The CGI is rubbish for the most part but does have the occasional saving grace, however, give me an actor in a rubber suit stomping on an over-sized model town any day of the week. The pace of the film wasn't brilliant, there were times were I got bored, but at an hour and half it did ok to keep me awake.

There are 100 things you could do which are better than watching this, but if you have done all those things and still have some spare time then this won't hurt too much. 3 out of 10.
