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 vs. 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
