Film / Age of Dinosaurs
Another film by The Asylum
. Genetically-revived dinosaurs escape their confinements and start eating people.
This film has examples of:
- Age of Titles: The film's title.
- Artistic License – Paleontology: Pronated hands all around
- The Carnotaurus is way too small, has a strangely elongated snout, and Allosaur-like hands. Justified in that it could be a juvenile (but it still doesn't explain the arms).
- Ceratopsians sans quills and Tyrannosaurus sans feathers
- Bridge Bunnies: the two women who operate the Geneti-Sharp computers
- Cool Versus Awesome: dinosaurs vs. the US army
- Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Oh yes!
- Noodle Incident: References to a similar incident in Japan are made.
- Ptero Soarer: Scaly pterosaurs that carry people away with their feet. And they have pointy wings and apparently nest in the hills.
- Rule of Cool: Why Geneti-Sharp revived mostly carnivorous dinosaurs. A character actually says Geneti-Sharp revived the big, carnivorous dinosaurs instead of simpler things like lizards or butterflies because dinosaurs are cooler
- Seldom-Seen Species: Freeze-framing reveals several Einiosaurus in the dinosaur stampede at the end.
- Shout-Out: To Jurassic Park, notably the "raptors in the kitchen" scene.
- Stock Dinosaurs: Of course! Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Spinosaurus, Ceratosaurus, and Pteranodon. An unidentified raptor-type dinosaur can be spotted in the background.
- Tempting Fate: "We wouldn't want these fellers running around the city, now would we?" Guess what happens. The dinosaurs run around in the city
