Having been a huge fan of the original Primeval series, I can't help but be disappointed by this pallid sequel. I will stop short of saying it's bad, but it certainly isn't good. "Uninteresting" is an apt word. A few good casting choices, more bad ones. The dialogue drags terribly: a conversation that should be dispatched in five energetic sentences goes on for three minutes while the viewer loses interest and forgets what the characters were discussing in the first place. Cinematography - what's that? I count four angles, all predictable, with the favorite being neck-up close shots of faces the director obviously thinks (erroneously) are gorgeous enough that the viewer will forgive bad acting and humdrum dialogue just to stare at starry eyes, lip gloss, and five o'clock shadow. The worst fault is direction, which makes adequate and sometimes really gifted actors appear wooden, two-dimensional, and boring. Actors come and go with no more motivation, apparently, than showing off some well-modeled biceps or a perky derriere. Even the dinosaurs - who provide the raison d'etre for the whole series, right? - seem like flashes of action diverting attention from what the director obviously thinks is the main point of the story: post-adolescent social interaction. I don't think I can stand another season of this ennui. Maybe if the producers wise up and hire directors who can really - direct. . .
