In the Isla Damas, a group of soldiers lands on the island and are attacked and murdered by a Komodo dragon. Two men, Hanson and Jason, leave a building surrounded by an electric fence to seek out survivors. They run back to the building and a woman, Rebecca "Becky"), who is the daughter of the scientist. Nathan Phipps, deactivates the fence. Phipps and his assistant Dawn Porter contact the Chief of a Naval Base at Hawaii, Foster, to discuss the dragons that are genetically-engineered by them to produce food that have turned into war machines by Foster. Meanwhile, a casino is robbed in Hawaii by the thieves Drake, Tiffany, and Reece that flee to Damas using the pilot of helicopter Jack. Soon they meet Phipps and Dawn shooting at a Komodo dragon and they learn that they need to team-up with the scientists to survive. Further, the contact with a Komodo turns the person onto a zombie. However the fuel of the generator is finishing and Foster does not have the intention of rescuing the ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Dr. Dawn Porter: Looks like our serum really works Professor! The valence readings are up almost 600%. I mean they're off the charts! The growth potential here is enormous!
Prof. Nathan Phipps: Listen, I want you and Becky to get back here as soon as possible. With that kind of exponential reaction there's no telling what kind of mutations have occurred. We run the risk of a complete molecular breakdown.

I want my 92 minutes back!
30 May 2005 | by jasoninkuwaitSee all my reviews

Absolutely the worst plot – OK, maybe tied with Solarbabies as the worst plot ever.

So let's get this straight. You're a genetic scientist, you get your secret governmental funding from some upstart Navy commander who pays for your project out of petty cash and that empty coffee can next to the bottled water, you create giant carnivores to feed the world, left your daughter trapped on a deserted island with afore mention beasts for a meeting that you could have used your 1920's era two way radio for, power the "electric fence" and your only defense with a Honda generator the size of a shoebox, just happen to keep extra guns and explosives in that old shack a few miles away, know how to assembly any weapon but cant hit the broad side of a barn, just happen to keep some grain alcohol on hand for those downtrodden commando helicopter pilots that stop by for brunch, and cant wait to sacrifice yourself to save the love of your life.

Right…… It all becomes so clear now. You just want yourself and everyone you know to die and get off this movie.
