View Full Version : Sabretooth
05-03-2003, 11:20 PM
A prehistoric predator is about to unleash its wrath on the modern world!
It runs faster than a RAPTOR...
It was deadlier than an ANACONDA...
It was smarter than a KILLER SHARK...
It has been extinct for 10,000 years...
Ok, that tagline sounds corny but fuck, for some reason I still wanna see this :D

For some reason I have always wanted to see a flick with a Sabretooth tiger in it.
Now it looks like my prayers will be answered.
Thanks H.B. :)

Hey, I have a screener of this I never watched. Perhaps now is the time. According to the box John Rhys-Davies is in it, so that should be worth something.

Please post your thoughts about it after you watch it Suicide.
Hopefully it will at least be worth a watch. :)

What's really weird is that - if this is a new film, no way I would see it.
Now - if it was made in the 50's, in black and white, I'd be all over it. Go figure.

Yeah I watched it yesterday and it's alright. It's got a couple actors who were actually competent and some intentional humor I actually laughed at, not to mention the unintentional stuff. ("Original Music by Igor" cracked me up for some reason.) Plus the three women in the movie are pretty attractive, so there's that. And there were a couple okay gore scenes. (And by couple I mean like 2 gruesome discoveries and an over the top blood splatter scene.) So it had it's moments.
The bad news is the CGI cat does in fact suck too much. When I'm watching a movie that's being played pretty straight, and there's a big poorly done cartoon tiger attacking people it kinda takes me out of it. Also this one kinda reminded me of Shark Attack 3 in that the title creature looks different everytime they show it. Sometimes the sabretooth was grey, other times it was a yellowish-brown kinda color, sometimes it's smaller than it was the last time they show it.
I'm still wondering why they used it as much as they did. Because they also used a non CGI thing that actually looked like a real animal. It may have been a real animal, I'm just wondering if you could take a large cat and somehow put 12'' fangs in his mouth without it killing you. Regardless that thing was pretty cool looking, actually kinda frightening.
So, I think it's worth a look for fans "animals gone wild" genre, but only if you can tolerate third rate CGI creatures. Even if you can't, you could probably get some good laughs out of the poor CGI quality.

Thanks for the mini review on this one Suicide.
Sounds like I might give it a rental, or else try to catch it on the Sci-Fi channel at some point.
