4.0 out of 5 stars Good creature feature. Aug. 11 2011
Format:DVD
I'm biased towards films like this and this is a good one. The lead character is enthusiastic,fun and
it's easy to like him.
The female doctor spends way too much time being a saint but she's ok as well.The bad guy has some great lines and is also very likeable.
The creature effects are good .

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun or Funny? April 28 2011
By Einsatz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The title alone warns you this wasn't meant to be taken seriously. Another tipoff, Sean Patrick Flanery's performance, delivered for laughs, even when he's being tortured. This film is rampant with dopey bad guys, bumbling fools, and pompous pinheads. Good sense wasn't involved (rule number 1, when you hear a rumbling under the ground, don't go and investigate. Rule number 2, when hiding from the bad guys at night, don't start a camp fire...because nothing says `you can't see us' like a roaring fire!). None of this should/could be confused with great art. It wasn't supposed to be. Take it as it is: a joke. Even producer Andrew Stevens pops in...just in time to be eaten! Yes, it's cheap and cheesy and obviously quickly made. Yes it's bad. But it's not terrible. It's a hoot. Take it that way and you won't be disappointed.
It's a keeper!

4.0 out of 5 stars unexpectedly good! July 9 2011
By Francisco P. Neto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I admit, after so much crap I've watched recently, I wasn't expecting much from this one. Okay, it's not a blockbuster at all, but what should one expect from this kind of movie? The acting is convincing for the most part, and the effects are decent. The plot is a cliché, but the story is fun nonetheless. I'd recommmend it to fans of the genre like me.

4.0 out of 5 stars The cover is misleading Oct. 4 2013
By Steve Markowitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I thought the worms would be really, really, really, really, really, really, really, REALLY, big. Like they are in the cover of the DVD. But alas, the worms were only really, really, really big. So I was disappointed. Can you hire some bigger worms for the sequel please! As for the worm acting. Well... I believe there are better worm actors out there, but obviously, they are a rare bread... so understandably the production crew had to settle for what they could find.

One aspect of the 'human' acting that I found amusing: When there was a worm lurking and on the verge of attacking it would make a non-human growling grumbling monster sound (i.e. "Grrroworworoowwraaaarh"), but the human actors would inquire, "who's there! Who is that?". Me? .... if I heard a monster sound like that... I wouldn't be asking such a question. I'd be getting the F*** out of there.

I give this charming film 4 stars for the fourtitude of the production staff, since "fivetitude" doesn't sound quite right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Campy but good fun. Sept. 15 2011
By Jule Kijek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a fun movie not to be taken too seriously. Sean Patrick Flanery is good as the slayer of the Mongolian Death Worms. Oscar-worthy it's not but an enjoyable movie for a rainy afternoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars watchable, and more July 7 2013
By Dan P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'd like to begin by stating that the Mongolian Death Worm is a real creature that has been described to science. Well, to scientists, by people who have spoken to other people who might actually be eyewitnesses. Which is good enough for the Sci Fi channel, you, and me.

Now, don't dismiss this movie as your typical low budget bad acting CGI monster romp. Set in Mongolia in the modern day, this film tracks nonprofit doctors fighting a mysterious water borne plague, foreign oil managers having plant trouble while smuggling stolen treasure on the side, a freelance mercenary archeologist and his straight cop buddy, and some bumbling bandits. That's a lot of plot lines to keep in mind, except that basically everyone on a mission (medical, engineering, smuggling, archeology) keeps having everything go wrong for the same reason. And that reason is Mongolian Death Worms, of course.

I'm sure everyone here is familiar with the book "Jaws" by the late Peter Benchley. For all its overt focus on the shark, the real theme of the book, if you will, is how the shark serves as an amplifier, let's say, for the tensions and instabilities of the community, the connection between politics, business speculation, the mob, Brody's relationship with his wife- all thrown into focus by a shark attack. In a similar way, the Mongolian Death Worms that underlie (literally) everyone's problems in the movie are in fact a metaphor for the very real problems in Mongolia at present, that threaten humanitarian missions, responsible investment, and communities there- poverty, remoteness, and most of all corruption.

There is no way to know if this message was the intent of the filmmaker, but the metaphor is definitely there, elevating this budget picture from an entertainingly watchable adventure into a bona fide political statement.
