Come on - this is a fun movie!
You don't tune into a movie called Pterodactyl expecting it to reshape your notion of high cinema - you tune in hoping to see a well-made creature feature! And in this regard, Pterodactyl is a guilty pleasure indeed.
I admit, I'm a SCI FI Channel movie junkie, and normally because they're so bad they're good. But this one surprised me - it's actually just plain good! Okay, so yes, the military leader is... Coolio. But believe it or not, I thought he did a great job. Overall, the cast is very solid, especially compared to other comparable films - the Raptor Islands and Sabretooths of the world.
But what really sets this movie apart is the direction. I wasn't surprised to find out later that a guy with actual credits made this film, and it shows. Mark Lester also directed Commando, Firestarter, and a slew of other films you've no doubt seen and enjoyed.
I mean, it's all relative. Is this Jurassic Park 4? No. But is it a lot of fun? Should you watch it if you tend to like these kinds of movies? Does it deliver the requisite gore, thrills, explosions and unrelenting gunfire you'd hope from a creature feature? Hell yes. And it has the greatest special effect of all - hot chicks.
