Carnosaur 3:Primal Species, Cheerleader vs. T-Rex

Everyone's favorite Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader, and former stewardess, Janet Gunn, is one of this blog's favorite actresses. The tall blonde is feisty, and when put in peril, fights back hard. Throw her in a Roger Corman flick and we have 1996's "Carnosaur 3: Primal Species." This film earned a 2.9/10 rating on IMDB, and according to the IMDB guide, a 2.9 is defined as "better than anything Mila Kunis has ever done." Given this is a Corman flick, will the sultry ex-cheerleader be impregnated by a reptilian beast?  We'll see.
An army convoy is attacked and terrorists steal a load of, what they believe is, Uranium.  Bad news for them...its not Uranium. Four carnosaurs (three raptors and one T-Rex) eat the terrorists, the responding cops and most of the army unit sent to recover the load.  The surviving army unit led by Col. Rance Higgins (Scott Valentine) are told not to kill the monsters, as they are part of an experiment that could save millions of lives...yeah right. Better yet, the geneticist heading the project sent to help is the sultry Dr. Hodges (Gunn). This doctor looks more like a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader than a geneticist, but this is a Roger Corman film.
Soon, the USMC will arrive to help out Col. Higgins' surviving soldiers.  There will be some nice looking female soldiers, but this is a Roger Corman film and they will all die horribly. As the monsters go through soldiers like crap through a goose, Dr. Hodges begins to see things Col. Higgins' way and agrees the fiends need to be killed.  Bad news, as the sultry Hodges examines a dead carnosaur, which the soldiers have killed, it re-animates and bites a marine's head off before escaping.  Now the fiends have nested aboard a ship and Hodges and surviving military follow along figuring they will kill them out at sea.
Are reptilian creatures impregnating NFL cheerleaders a plot device that Roger Corman might introduce to us?  Is the stunning Dr. Hodges slated for a fate worse than death at the hands of carnosaurs eager to reproduce?   Can Col. Higgins protect Dr. Hodges' virtue thereby keeping open the possibility of mating with her, himself? This is a fun one, and Janet Gunn always is worth watching (remember her from the USA TV show "Silk Stalkings").  For some dinosaur fun, less commercial than the "Jurassic Park" franchise, enjoy "Carnosaur 3: Primal Species."
