Help me, please!

Somebody please help me!

Okay. What have we got?

Three mackerel

one bonito.

Do you know, Lorena, this area around

here is not such a good area for fishing.

We're not supposed to be fishing!

We're supposed to be

studying the eco system.

Wait, what's that?

What's that? What's that?

- What? What is what?

- Right there!


No, no, no. It's an egg sack.

Bring it over here.

It's huge! From a Great White maybe.

Maybe. I don't know.



Your..., Mr. Symes.

Thank you, Rachel.

Mornin', boys.

Test deployment in

T minus three, two, one.

Deployment successful.

Air speed, 200 miles per hour.

Altitude, three thousand

feet and dropping.

- Outstanding. Mr. Hammerstein.

- Air speed, 200 miles per hour.

Are you ready to witness history?

As your head of security,

it's my legal responsibility

to remind you... you're nuts.

You know how many fighter jets

the Pentagon bought last year?


They prefer drones, the stupid

little things you fly with a joystick.

I say, screw that.

I wanna build a better mouse trap,

something that lives and breathes.

What is this thing?

We've been harvesting prehistoric

DNA for years now,

strictly off the book.

The problem is that the genetic

sequences are fragmented,

so we have to inlay, splice stuff

in there from living creatures.

Target acquired.

Plus, I wanted certain enhancements.

I mean, the Pterodactyl

is fine on land, in the air,

but I wanted him to have

amphibious qualities, as well.

Fast in the water, excellent vision.

Basically, just plain mean.

And why do you have me here?

Mr. Hammerstein

I present to you... Pteracuda!




I tried to sell this

to the State Department

and they were afraid of the

international. Just built one for myself.

Entering new command prompt.

Pteracuda, return to base.

The Pentagon doesn't know about this?

No, my own board of directors

doesn't know about this.

I financed this entire operation

out of secret bank accounts.

I mean, by the time

my board gets a hold of this,

they're gonna be begging

to give me money.

You know, just begging to pour it on.

It... it's not responding

to command, sir.

Try it again.

Repeat, Pteracuda, return to base.

Pteracuda, return your ragged,

prehistoric ass to base.

Pteracuda changing course.

It works.

Airspeed steady at

one hundred miles per hour.

Increasing to one twenty.


One forty.

- Air speed still increasing. Sir?

- Why?

Air speed, 200 miles per hour.

Sir, it's heading right for us.

Well, you know, you can't make an

omelette without breaking a few eggs.

Don't just stand there looking smug,

get your men, go after it! Go on!

Load up!

Let's go. Let's stay focused, stay alive.

So, how long before it went crazy?

Six and a half minutes.

Son of a gun.

Did you hear that?

Six and a half minutes.

You know what that means?

- Vasquez wins the pool.

- Pay up, bitches.


What's its current location?

Radar has your bogie 60 miles south

and holding steady in that position.

All right, lock and load.

Let's go, go, go!

xxx number 4561,

you're clear for takeoff.

Copy that, tower.

We are clear for takeoff.

Everybody hold on tight.

Up, up and away.

Okay, people, look alive.

We're approaching the coordinates.

All right, guys,

are you ready to do this?

Hey, Ham, why do you always

put that picture of your baby up?

'Cause when it's my time

that's what I wanna be looking at.

And I'm stuck staring at your ugly face.

It's go time, everyone.

Hit to your side!

Did you hit it?

No way! We're going too fast!
