Decent and amusing fifth sequel with usual Michael Gross, well supported byJamie Kennedy
2 June 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

South Africa, at a wildlife reserve appearing the monstrous Graboids, as the creepy and man eating animals are back. The reserve is besieged by the giant killers predators with several tongues. There comes Grummer, Michael Gross, and his pal Jamie Kennedy, both of whom join forces to defeat the invincible Graboids. As they attack above and in below. Along the way Grummer is locked at a cage and surrounded by lions and Graboids.

This is an agreeable followup, an entertaining, fun and quite bemusing juvenile romp. Dealing with the eerie and bloody predators that are back and even mutated and deadlier than before, terrorizing deeply the inhabitants of a South African reserve run by a beautiful veterinarian woman, Natalie Becker .The film relies heavily on the peculiar relationship between Michael Gross and Jamie Kennedy, including a sympathetic surprise among them. This is a funny adventure, being slickly shot and attempting to update the 50s and 60s monster movies to modern times. Pretty good digital effects recreating the carnivorous and ferocious animals.

The motion picture was professionally directed by Don Michael Paul. He is a secondary actor and an occassional professional director. He is a craftsman who has directed a few films as Jarhead 2, Sniper Legacy, Lake Placid : Final chapter, Death race : Beyond anarchy, Bulletproof 2, Kindergaten cops 2, Who is your caddy?, The garden, among others .
