Once again, a Made For SciFi (sorrt SyFy??) came up with a ridiculouspremise and CGI that totally sucked (literally as well asfiguratively).
Hasn't ANYONE out there seen the SpongeBob episode with the AlaskanBull Worm?? Hasn't anyone out there seen "Tremors"? And VictoriaPratt....what WERE you thinking? You went from kick-ass Cyane inXena:Warrior Princess to this dreck? I guess a paycheck is a paycheckbut c'mon, we all KNOW you can do a lot better. Couldn't you get aguest shot on Burn Notice? Bad acting. bad dialogue, bad CGI, aridiculous premise, bad continuity (did anyone happen to notice thatthe guy went from having an semi-automatic pistol in one scene, arevolver in the next and then back to the semi-automatic?). And whenthey were hiding from the "highway robbers and thugs" they pulled 2feet off the road AND THEN BUILT A CAMPFIRE????? This movie was a trainwreck. Which is why I watched it all the way through.
Really, really bad movies delight me. To be a really, really bad moviea film must reach new heights of absurdity and make one laugh out loudat the ridiculousness of the events unfolding. Such movies, you think,must be written by those clever fourth graders, Kyle, Kenny, Stan andEric. They are full of action, admittedly, very predictable action, andmust have poor acting (although, one wonders if Meryl Streep could dothem with any realism). Mega Piranha was a really, really bad movie.Death Worm of Mongolia, wasn't. It was extremely ho-hum with worse thanusual acting, a silly story line and immensely, immense worm crittersthat were predictable and fairly easy to kill and outrun. The onlyredeeming feature in the movie was the Mongolian "Sherriff", who spokeperfect cowboy type English and drove around in a truck marked Police,need I say, printed in English. It took forever for the storyline tounfold and was a disappointment when it finally made sense. Alsoquestionable is the apparel of the doctor who is wandering aroundMongolia with some medicines to help people stricken with a disease sheknows nothing about. I question if a doctor visiting a foreign countrywould parade around wearing a tank top and pedal pushers. It justlooked inappropriate and quite unrealistic. Perhaps she would don suchan outfit inside the shack they were using as a hospital, butoutside...in public...very poor taste. All in all, I am sorry to saythat Mongolian Death Worm was not a really, really bad movie, it wasjust boring dreck!User: kmcali76
I, too, am a sucker for a wonderfully terrible Sci Fi movie. This moviehas been somewhat entertaining. There are a bushel of badactors,terrible special effects, and awful story line. But, my greatestdisappointment has not been in the aforementioned attributes. But, inthe fact that this movie was not filmed in Mongolia. More likePodunk,Montana or Lampshade, North Dakota. When first choosing to watchthis movie, I thought of "Centipede," a wonderfully awful film actuallyfilmed in India...which made it that much better (worse). I jest, butthe landscape of the film is in contrast to it's title....a definitedisappointment for me.User: abominablebro
Mongolian Death Worm has a lot to offer and more importantly, is a lotof fun. The script was well written and the directing by Steven R.Monroe made for a pretty good made-for-t.v. movie. Sean PatrickFlannery did very well on delivering his lines. The dialog in MongolianDeath Worm was clever and humorous which is essential for good moviesthese days. I have to mention the the CG worms in the film wereactually done very well and completely believable in several scenes.The movie had a wide range of personalities for their characters andeven had a swap of likability between the Sean's character, Daniel andthe bad guy at the oil rig. Mongolian death worm is no masterpiece, butis a very well-made, made-for-t.v. movie that is definitely worthchecking out.User: static612
This is timeless tale of a treasure hunter meeting a doctor and thenworms attack bringing sickness to all of the villages in the area. Youreally can't get enough of a love story like this. I'm a sucker for theSyfy movies of the week. I've seen a ton of them and I keep comingback. This one was billed as being based on a real "Destination Truth"investigation, which made it even a more appealing. Also can I just sayhow do you not watch a movie called "Mongolian Death Worm". In realityit should be called Mongolian Death Worms because there is way morethan one worm and they attack the crap out of anything they comeacross. This movie lived up to the hype. It was a good time and whileit the cgi was by no means "Avatar" and the story wasn't "Chinatown" itwas sufficient and entertaining. This get's a 8 of 10 based on thecampy made for TV movie meter.
