He drops a nitrogen bomb into the spider's mouth, killing it and saving the city. How on Earth they managed to keep straight faces while making this baffles me. In fairness, this is not the absolute worst film I have ever seen. Ian Ziering from Sharknado has a cameo. So, it's logical the two separate teams came up with the same plot. I gave the obligatory eye roll when I saw the title. The Story Line Very Similar To Sharkado Was Solid And Fun.
Colton makes a plan to kill the queen spider with a liquid nitrogen bomb, made using items from the special effects store. But hey, an earthquake hits Los Angeles, unleashing erupting fissures and starts volcanic activity, and midst the chaos lava-spewing giant spiders scurry from the depths of the earth to wreak havoc on Los Angeles. I was not sure what to expect. That was just candy for us lovers of the B-movie creature features. Wyatt runs to the roof of the warehouse where he gets a phone signal and texts his location to Colton. There are a lot of familiar faces. The baby spiders then attack Travis, setting him on fire and killing him.
Lavalantula, as far as SyFy movies go, looks decent. They act scared, but aren't really scared. I guess you've seen Police Academy then. The references to the Police Academy and Jurassic Park and various other movies was great. . I admit that I watched the film out of morbid curiosity, and also because Steve Guttenberg was in it to be fair.
It was directed by Mike Mendez and stars , and. Once again, giant, lava spewing spiders are on the loose - this time in Florida, where Colton's stepdaughter is only spring break. Co-star Nia Peeples is required to do little more than show off her cleavage in every single scene she appears in, but it's Guttenberg's low-rent action man heroics that see this one through. Finally, the good guys win and the leading characters and very likable secondary characters survive, as they always should in a competent action movie. Better than most I've seen from this channel.
They would be big, naturally. After getting stuck in traffic and being late to pick up his son, his real trouble stars when an earthquake unleashes giant spiders who spit lava. I imagine all the points where they cracked into laughter about how formulaic and absurd this film was probably ended up on the cutting room floor, but I imagine a gag reel for this would actually be more entertaining. Then, the giant queen spider comes to the surface. Lots of spiders come out of sinkholes to the surface. When a volcanic eruption spews out giant fire breathing spiders 90's action movie star Colton West is on a mission to find his son, then save Los Angeles. Spiders come out of the hole spitting fire and start attacking people.
The great Steve Guttenburg and cast of police academy sending themselves up perfectly against an army of lava filled cgi tarantulas that are scary and funny in equal measure. He encounters giant lava spiders, bad actors and terrible script and has to face them all - will he succeed? The script and production values are wonderful for the limited budget. Editing and photography is tighter than most SyFy movies, locations are colourful and atmospheric, the way the production is lit is less drab than usual and while there is the occasional cheapness and over-obviousness in places the spider effects have a menacing and never goofy look, are proportioned well and fit in the surroundings nicely without looking fake, in short far above the typical the SyFy special effects standard. Jack is killed, but Colton manages to escape. Having seen the film, I can't see how you could. Colton arrives home, and tells his wife Olivia about the giant spiders and tells her they need to leave. Great and attractive leading actors are a key element of the successful SyFy production.
A volcano goes off near Los Angeles and giant fire-breathing spiders jump out and start killing people. Nia Peeples has grown older, but she looked fabulous. And who could ever resist Michael Winslow? The writing is witty and often times laugh out loud and for a Syfy movie that's saying something. Watch it with your friends, watch it when you're drunk, watch it when you're unconscious - you'll get a good time. Using all his acting experience Guttenberg sets about rescuing his family and escaping the unfolding horror. Olivia and Colton arrive and run over the spider with the Army truck.
The ending was worse than the rest of the movie. No, the movies have a completely different cast and crew. Now, I have seen worse than this, but, this was pretty dumb. Guttenberg knocks over some set pieces. They plant the bombs around the chamber and detonate them. It premiered on on July 25, 2015. The problems here are poor storyline, bleak dialogue, bad acting, and just plain dumbness.
Colton stops the bus and evacuates it just before it blows up. In fact, I'd say it was excellent to see Guttenberg leading up a movie again and he manages to be quite fun here as he's sense of humor really works well with the material. Steve Guttenberg yes, he's still alive! The acting is also better than average, amusing Steve Guttenberg and the other three Police Academy members are immensely fun to watch as is Patrick Renna and Nia Peeples brings some heart to the movie. Once more, this intrepid man of action will have to do what he knows best, armed only with a shotgun and the will to survive. That said, it's way better than Sharknado 4, which is a good thing. And, the people being chased by the spiders, aren't even scared! The gore is minimal and sufficiently animated not to be gross and distasteful.
But when suddenly, a swarm of earthquakes hits Southern California, a string of unprecedented events, chaos, and lava will give birth to a new breed of lava-breathing arachnids, forcing Colton to find his family before it's too late. It is amusing, filled with cinematic pop culture references. It parodied all movies of this genre with a tongue in cheek innocence that belied it's self effacing motive. He tricks the driver and steals the bus. While that might sound enticing, the actress has more bulges and pock marks than a golf ball. And provided you're not expecting much, it delivers.
