Entertaining SciFi with Dinosaurs! - 65 review by GI

Spoiler Alert
17/03/2023

An enjoyable science fiction romp that mixes a space crash landing scenario and survivalist narrative throwing in dinosaurs for the tension and adventure. Yes it's essentially Jurassic park in space but it's all done with a nice panache and Adam Driver as the tough astronaut gives it his all. He plays Mills, the captain of a spacecraft on a two year mission having left behind his seriously ill daughter on their home planet. The passengers are all in cryosleep when the ship strays into an uncharted asteroid field and crashes on an uncharted planet of primeval forests and very dangerous wildlife. We, the viewer, are informed this is actually Earth but 65 million years ago. From there we have a simple survival narrative with the usual jump scares and the dinosaurs are all well presented. Mills does find one survivor, a young girl (Ariana Greenblatt) to give him someone to protect. Overall the film at times feels all a bit rushed and it's all totally predictable stuff. There has been reported some release issues for a few years and I have little doubt that the film was expected to be more epic than it actually is. This is a shame because with some thought and a more focused and perhaps slower narrative this could have been really very good. As it is it's a well presented B movie that has some neat set pieces yet leaves you feeling just a little bit disappointed.

Awful low-budget B/C/D etc movies allegedly featuring dinosaurs - 65 review by PV

Spoiler Alert
21/06/2023

I usually love dinosaur films and have watched them all - but this? It's not even a B movie or a C movie or a D movie, Keep going, if you must - I could not ad turned off halfway through.

Just awful. HOW can a movie about dinosaurs be so mind-numbing boring? They must have put a great deal of thought into how to achieve that.

Instead watch THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT (1974) and the VALLEY OF GWANGI (1969) from which the final scene of Jurassic Park is lifted The T-Rex focus which is NOT in the novel actually, just the superb screenplay by David Koepp).

I do even like low-budget dino films like THE DINOSAUR PROJECT (2012). Though no doubt there are some turkeys i have not seen,.

But this is beyond bad. 1 star, Just.

Critic review

65 (aka Untitled Scott Beck / Bryan Woods Project) review by Mark McPherson - Cinema Paradiso

65 is precisely the film it promises to be, no more and no less. The poster and trailers have promised that Adam Driver will run around a prehistoric planet while firing at dinosaurs. That is indeed what happens in this film. If that’s all you’re hoping for, this may be an okay film to pass the time. And, yet, I find myself hoping for a bit more.

Driver plays Pilot Mills, a husband/father who takes intergalactic jobs to provide for his family. He resides on Somaris, which looks similar to Earth and has humans but is set 65 million years before the modern day. This provides the setup for his vessel to crash-land on Earth amid its most chaotic period. He ventures out into a wilderness to discover bloodthirsty dinosaurs inhabit it. And they’re soon to be extinct with a looming mass extinction event.

65 has many of the hallmarks you’d expect with this type of film. Mills longs for his family and deals with the devastation of being away from them for so long, as with him reviewing messages sent in a tearful reveal ala Interstellar. He befriends the ship's only survivor, a little girl called Koa (Ariana Greenblatt), who serves as his reason to live when all hope seems lost. They form a quiet bond as they try to fight off prehistoric beasts and find a way off the planet before they become fossils.

There’s a familiarity to this material, which may give the audience reason enough to strike it down as being a derivative blend of After Earth, Land of the Lost, and Lost in Space. While it’d be too easy and lazy to mark the film down so effortlessly, there’s not much in the film to distinguish it from the onslaught of lost-world sci-fi tales. For featuring such a generic title, it’s sure to get lost in the shuffle of this subgenre as well, where those wanting to recall the film might have to qualify it as “the Adam Driver dinosaur hunter movie.”

There isn’t much to say about this film beyond its spectacle. Driver performs fine, but he’s not given much to work with here. His mildly stoic character becomes a bore of going through the motions, highlighting his experience as a father when attending to the frightened Koa, who can’t speak English. The communication gap leads to the expected moments of connection, where Driver’s attempts to connect are both heartfelt and low-key amusing.

And, yes, the special effects are fine for this that is 75% running and gunning monsters of the prehistoric age. There are some solid sequences of outrunning dinosaurs, sneaking around trees, and finding clever ways to kill these man-eating beasts. Even some of the tech aboard Mills’s spaceship are cool. However, they’re more compelling for the assembly than the overall style, which mostly looks like a generic sci-fi military aesthetic.

65 feels very much like how the central character treats his piloting mission: A routine job. It does what it promises and puts forth the minimum effort to string together decently interesting characters in an orthodox tale of planetary survival. Directors Scott Beck and Bryan Woods do a good job with the staging, keeping the film bathed in crime and darkness to stress the danger, but it’s a far cry from their more compelling survival picture, A Quiet Place. So don’t go in expecting A Quiet Place with dinosaurs and guns. Tempered expectations are required to fully appreciate the sight of Driver piercing the skull of a dinosaur. And even then, there’s no guarantee how satisfying that kill will appear when bogged down with routine cliches.
