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

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

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.

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

Did anyone find any movie in this cliché.

This movie is the WORST movie ever made!

maybe, just a predictable rip-off .

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


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

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.

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

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.

It was a complete waste of my time!

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.

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

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

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.

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

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...

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.

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

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

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

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

Probably one of the worst movies ever .

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

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.

Rating : Passable and entertaining.

The result is thoroughly unpleasant but undeniably thrilling action movie .

One of the worst movies ever...

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