      Lyndsey E Lord help me. Advertised as 'Jurassic Island' on Amazon Prime, I'd really hoped for more than a second of dinosaurs, but a second is pretty much what we got. The acting on this was a little better than I expected it to be, but it was still appalling enough. This was budget Jumanji (2019) meets budget Sharknado (can you believe that, BUDGET Sharknado?!) meets... who even knows but good grief. Sarah and her friends open an arcade, having loved them their entire lives, and partially in honour of Sarah's brother who went missing when they were kids after a night in an arcade together. They end up in the game, Rancala, after hypothesising that Jake is stuck in it. Arriving we get the first level - all hail the budget Sharknado, followed by a series of other equally appalling levels. Of course they find Jake, blah blah blah, started to lose interest at this point of course. The end was hilariously appalling, because of course it was, as they get out and the adult video game of Jake turns back into the kid version of himself but years later... yeah, try explaining that to your parents... Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Really bad watch, wont' watch again, and can't recommend unless it is for a Bad Movie Night. This movie has some charming aspects to it, and honestly a great premise (The "Jumanji" and "Zathura" movies prove that.) The writing itself is even good, but you can see where they had to note things when it went to production. By far, the worst bit of this was the cg, it honestly would have been better to just never show the CG animals and have them verbally describe them. It's almost as bad as "Birdemic". To be fair, the foley for the gunfire actually seemed accurate enough. There are obvious horrible cliches abound like leaving weapons behind, not checking inventory (which they even joke about), and of course there is the wonderful pro-feminine argument where the movie makes a commentary on the stupid outfits the ladies have to wear, but the movie is the one that put them in those outfits (and leaves them in them for far too long). The reason this isn't going to stand up along side its sister movies is just bad acting: the main ladies clearly seem like they have some talent for it, but action fighting is clearing not what they should be doing. The poor fight choreography on this one must have just been happy they stayed on their feet. And it is very clear what they worked on because there are fight moves and stances that are reasonable, but it was very clear that the director was insistent on getting it to look a certain way when it was anything but "generic fighting". They also had a lousy DP, it's a 3d environment that they're in, but they would continually reference 2d video game staples, and not angle the camera correctly for it to be isometric: you end up having "Double Dragon" or "Streets of Rage" style fights that look like "Street Fight 2" or "Mortal Kombat", and there are no weapons or special powers to punch up the fighting. Occasionally there are "team-up" moves, but that's usually just shoving or dancing with someone else. What's worse, is that you combine some of those problems and you get weird situations: falls that are clearly shallow, but treated otherwise, people standing out in the open being "hidden" while they see someone behind a rock, and I'm very certain that one of the characters stands on her dead body after being creeped out by it: she walks away, turns around, comes back and even raises up a couple of inches...it's weird. If you're just DYING for more "Jumanji" and you haven't watch "Zathura" yet, then invite some friends to make fun of this at a Bad Movie Night. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Rip off of Jumanji. Goodness it was awful!!! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
