Raptor (2001)

How bad is it? It just  may be the worst dinosaur movie!
Should you see it? If you've seen "Carnosaur," you've seen most of it already.

Producer Roger Corman took footage from his "Carnosaur" (a film Gene Siskel liked a lot, by the way) and its sequels, and then had Jim Wynorski shoot new footage to piece together a new film. The edits are more than obvious. A military dinosaur clone expert continues his experiments when let go and they start eating local animals and people.  Reusing footage is how this cheap film could afford Eric Roberts, Corbin Bernsen and James Cromwell. Wynorski gave himself a cameo in the police station. There is nothing here you haven't seen before - quite literally - and you've seen it done better. It's almost so bad as to be amusing.
