Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid (2011 Telefilm/Image Entertainment Blu-ray)

Picture: C     Sound: C     Extras: C     Feature: C



Get ready for a titanic battle between two colossal forces.  When snake activist Dr. Nikki Riley releases a pythons into the Everglades they begin to rapidly reproduce, and soon turn into huge *literally* problems, but when human casualties start appearing, Ranger Terry O'Hara responds by feeding the gator population growth serum to fight this slithering epidemic...  Soon these gigantic monsters begin to have a showdown with each other, humans become just a light snack for these reptiles.  Can both Nikki and Terry set aside their differences to stop these man eating monsters?
In the spirit of Jaws and titan monsters, this film is a story of animal activists gone wrong. There are two camps in a hillbilly town, the snake lovers and the gator lovers, each one believes one should eradicate the other.  In a town where the main form of recreation is to hunt these reptiles, soon turns into a nightmare when these creatures grow to monster proportions start hunting back.
If you like blood, guts, dismemberment with giant snakes and gators eating hillbillies then look no further.  Two huge fear icons the gator and snake, both has been already mated into various movies of giant-sized versions of them such as Lake Placid and Anaconda, why not put them together for the ultimate reptile rumble?  You are hardly rooting for any of the human animal activists because each of them tried to resolve the natural balance by changing the eco system, they ended up just makes it worst, but you can't really root for the animals either since they are eating humans.  The CGI was terrible and only added to the cheesiness of the whole affair, directed by Mary Lambert, who used to at least be able to helm good Music Videos.  Extras include making of the featurette and trailer.
