The landlord of my dinosaur world has emerged!

If you love movies like Dynocroc, Sharktopus, and Cowboys and Dinosaurs, Metamorphosis may be right up your alley. If you felt like the Jurassic Park series had too much story and character development and too many darn dinosaurs, Metamorphosis may be the movie for you! Metamorphosis stars one lethal ever-evolving dinosaur and two, count them, two giant snake-dinosaur hybrids. All that and web movie CGI-what more could a B movie enthusiast ask for?

Deep in a secret genetic laboratory, a cleaning maid with an entrance card to everything, even inside a dinosaur's cage, finds out the hard way that the caged T-Rex can "camouflage". Meanwhile, Chris Pratt, I mean Liang, is chasing down an enormous snake to take back to the endangered animal sanctuary. He finds out that someone crossed a Monty Python (Who knew the Chinese were Monty Python enthusiasts-'Tis but a scratch!) and a Triceratops. He immediately visits his ex-girlfriend who works in the super-secret laboratory just in time to see the T-Rex's leftovers in the hall and the race is on to get everyone out of the building! But of course, the evil scientist in charge has locked the place down! It doesn't take much imagination or movie experience to see where this story is going.

You know you are in a B movie when even the Chinese take every chance they can for the women to lose their clothes. There are no true nude scenes, but it is funny how often they are losing their shirts. There is also the requisite idiotic female character who is supposed to be the comic relief, with the huge glasses and big fluffy ponytails who always screams at the wrong moment. I kept hoping she would turn into dinosaur chow. There is also the arrogant, in it for himself character, who you know will be eaten sometime.

The main male character spends most of his time running down hallways trying to lure the dinosaur away from others. He's heroic that way, and the movie lets you know this fact constantly. The two main female characters are almost interchangeable. Though daring they need constant saving. There is also a second ML who is usually trying to guide the group to safety while the ML is running furiously from giant creatures. The acting was serviceable, but bland and uninventive. None of the characters had any real personality to them.

Though everyone keeps calling the creature a T-Rex, the female lead said it was a mixture of Velociraptor, crocodile, and chameleon. You are in for a real treat when it uses a long tongue to lasso his prey. The CGI was okay for the ever-changing dinosaur. This is not Jurassic park level CGI, this is strictly B movie CGI. The two immense snakes were far less convincing.

Though the CGI wasn't great, there was a lot of monster action which made up for the lack of story and character development. The ending was strictly by the book for a B movie, right down to the last scene. If you are in the mood for a dinosaur movie and don't mind the lower quality, this one will give you something to watch until they make Jurassic Park 18 or Dynocroc 5.
