Mega Python Vs Gatoroid

At the fund-raising event, Nikki shows up at the VIP tent uninvited, threatening to blackmail Terry with a disc containing footage of her feeding the alligators. This leads to a fight between the two women that destroys the party. Meanwhile, as Nikki and Terry continue their fight in a swamp, the reptiles crash the event, devouring guest of honor Micky Dolenz and several other partygoers. However, Terry's friend Barbara Fine manages to survive and escape. Realizing that they will have to work together to stop this threat, Nikki and Terry, along with Angie and Diego, drive to Miami to get help and prevent the reptiles from invading the city, but are too late and Angie is devoured by a python as they flee from the city. Nikki comes up with a plan to save Florida; she plants explosives in the quarry while Terry and Diego fly over Miami in a crop duster and spray pheromones they acquired from Nikki's office, luring the reptiles to them. However, when their plane crashes on a highway after being hit by a python, Terry takes the remaining bottles of pheromones and drives an abandoned car to lure the reptiles away from the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant. Back in the cave, Nikki finds herself surrounded by an alligator and hundreds of hatchlings. Terry rescues her by driving her car with a lit container of gasoline toward the alligator. Surrounded by the remaining reptiles around the quarry, the two women lock themselves inside a supply shed, where Nikki admits to Terry that she released the snakes into the Everglades, to Terry's disgust. Diego arrives in a rescue helicopter and picks up Nikki, but is too late to save Terry, who is caught by an alligator and devoured, with Nikki and Diego helpless to save her. Nikki blows up the quarry, killing all of the reptiles in sight, but the explosion rocks the helicopter, throwing her off as she falls into a swamp. The helicopter circles back for Nikki while pieces of pythons and alligators rain around her, and she is eaten by a python head that is still alive (as snake heads can survive for up to an hour).

Mega Python vs Gatoroid


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gibson will play a fanatical animal-rights activist who frees illegally imported exotic snakes from pet stores, sending them into the Everglades, where they grow to mega sizes. Tiffany will play an overzealous park ranger who uses dangerous methods to save endangered alligators.

In the Everglades, Chief Ranger Terry O'Hara (Tiffany) is charged with taking out a killer python after her fiancé's death. She meets opposition from animal activist Dr. Nikki Riley (Debbie Gibson), so Terry responds with a new plan: She gives steroids to the gators so that they can take out the pythons. Unfortunately, the plan goes awry; all the snakes and gators grow to enormous size and begin snacking on nearby humans. Accompanied by an expert reptile hunter (A Martinez), the women must team up to save the planet. Can they set aside their differences for this common goal?

After a species of giant python invades the Everglades, park workers breed mutant gators to counter the threat. Soon the battle between giant pythons and mutant gators threatens all of Florida.

Widescreen. An animal activist has accidentally unleashed a python into the Everglades. When the hunt for the creature results in the death of Chief Ranger Dr. Terry O'Hara's boyfriend, she resorts to extreme measures by creating genetically enlarged alligators to stop the slithering menace. Stars '80s pop icons Debbie Gibson and Tiffany. 91 minutes.

Our dueling participants, Dr. Nikki Riley (Debbie Gibson) and Terry O'Hara (Tiffany) are polar opposite. One is an environmentalist who borders on terrorist, who loves snakes, freeing a whole lab's worth into the Everglades. The other is a park ranger, who has had to prohibit permits for gator hunting due to the massive losses in gators over the last year. Huge snakes are decimating their rivals' ranks, and are killing humans, including O'Hara's fiance. To get a grip on the situation, O'Hara injects experimental steroids and growth enhancers into gator food, to combat the snakes. However, she doesn't quite think the situation out too far, as the already huge pythons begin eating the juiced up gator eggs, getting bigger, and the gators eating the snakes, taking in more of the substance. It's an out of control arms race that will soon threaten us all, and the two women responsible for it can't look past their own cat fighting to realize what they've done.

See, I could have really gotten into this film if it were like its title. 'Mega Python vs Gatoroid' sounds like a battle between two mega powers, the unstoppable force versus the immovable object. Rather, everything is ridiculously plural. There's no python more enormous than the others, nor is there a super gator of any kind. So, instead of having a unique creature, it's just a ton of the same ones, almost literally, since the special effects don't do a good job of giving any creature distinguishing marks. This...this isn't what I signed up for. I was promised on the cover two huge fucking creatures fighting in the midst of a metropolis, destroying everything and everyone in their path, and what I got instead was a bunch of generic beasts that I couldn't care any less about.

It's funny, sure, that we have two mega-struggles in the film, as the two leads constantly give us something or someone to root for. There's plenty of funny lines, nods, or jokes to keep the film buoyant and somewhat entertaining, and the ridiculous attire (cleavage cop!) can be somewhat fun to stare at. At the same time, though, there's also some of the worst dialogue, effects work, logic, and pacing found in this sub-genre's growing annuls. I really don't know what the message of this film was. It kinda led me to believe that the only way to survive is to kill every animal in sight, and I'm not quite sure that's exactly what the film was intending to do. Thankfully, this isn't a SyFy feature, so there's plenty of severed limbs and heads, blood gushes, and gore galore. There's even a cruel, cruel twist at the end that surely earned my respect. There just isn't all that much more with this flick. It's a lazy saturday afternoon movie, and never aspires to be more. If only the filmmakers would have given us more scenes like a snake swallowing an entire train, or performing some other kind of ridiculous destruction, it might have been saved.

Sometime around 12:30 last night (or early this morning, for all you picky types) I was channel surfing and came across a listing for a 2011 movie called Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. "Monstrous reptiles clash in the Florida Everglades when giant pythons threaten the alligator population," read the description. Then came the kicker: "Starring 1980s pop stars Debbie Gibson and Tiffany." 041b061a72
