However, the weak story and direction are suitably complemented by the wooden and predictable performances of the entire cast.

I have a particular affection (not in the usual meaning of the word) for this stupid, lame, pointless, laughable movie.

The monster goes on a completely predictable rampage and kills people so our hero, a chick from the CIA and an annoying Newt-wannabe kid have to stop the Predator - I mean - Velicoraptor.

It's a brutal , exciting and violent Sci-Fi thriller with gory action and little logic .

Acting is pretty good, special effect is okay, and there's some decent action, and a story that's reasonably compelling.

This is just a real bad and boring movie, full of cliches, ridiculous stuff and so much sucked from Predator that, if I had the rights on Predator, I should sue this guys for this.

Probably one of the worst movies ever .

Boring, cliche-ridden yarn about a doctor who discovers a beetle whose DNA has something to do with ancient bones found in the middle of a jungle.

The end sequences, where Dacascos strips off and makes traps for the alien in the jungle, and then jumps off a waterfall, and also hides in mud to avoid detection, are directly ripped from PREDATOR, a much better monster on the loose film, and comparisons are pointless as this is nowhere near as good.

Suspending disbelief is a waste of time, and be prepared to have your intelligence insulted on the Battlefield Earth level.

Rating : Passable and entertaining.

Did anyone find any movie in this cliché.

If not, save your time, save your money and save your dignity by giving it a very wide berth.

If you like predictable storylines, horrible acting and poor FX then this movie is for you.

I am sure you know the kind of script where the writers make things confusing to make you believe there is actually a story behind all the killing...

All in all, though, this is a very enjoyable film for fans of B-movies.

But the movie is worth watching if you don´t want to use your brain so much.

One of the worst movies ever...

I have to say that, in every way, DNA is, for sure, one of the worst movies out there.

That's about all I can say for this movie it was pretty boring up until the end, the special effects for the Monster are a bit cheezy.


Second, tribes living in the jungle with only spears and bows with arrows for protection/food and only a cloth around the waist is a cliché and as far as I know, dead wrong.

It was a complete waste of my time!

DNA : with it's list of predictable moments and bad special effects, it's no wonder I saw it on late night TV in a foreign country.

There's also a drawn out death scene that drags everything to a complete halt just when it had finally started moving.

So yes, this is rubbish, but of the enjoyable kind!

The result is thoroughly unpleasant but undeniably thrilling action movie .

This movie is the WORST movie ever made!

Overall the movie is a fun, slightly cheesy, yet entertaining cheap thrill ride!

maybe, just a predictable rip-off .

The final confrontation is particularly exciting stuff , even though it makes no great sense .

He is always entertaining when he is on screen, and his death comes far too soon.
