The People's Review of Dinosaur
score = None
This film is to animation is what Star Wars was to the Science Fiction
genre - it raises the benchmark by 10 notches. I was totally
mesmerised by the almost perfect blending of realism and animation in this
movie in addition to the innovative "camera angles".
Forget that it has a familiar disney plot and that the realistic looking
dinosaurs have voices - this is an animated disney film afterall!!
Just enjoy the film that could never have been brought to the screen
before in such a visually spectacular and realistic presentation - if u
were not an adult, u could believe that dinosaurs had the capacity to

I had a good time watching this one. It may have beeen intended for
younger viewers but it still was a pretty good film. The fact that the
entire film was created with computer animations was simply astounding! I
would have liked to seen an all-star cast like maybe Michael J. Fox as
Aladar or Whoopie as Plio. The efects were stunning and it is a great
choice for younger audiences.

i thought the animation was very realistic and i thought the movie had a
great story. it was informative and realistic on the lives of dinosaurs,
yet it wasn't too scary to take your child to go see.
score = 10
Despite the great visual effects, the script was nondescript and the plot,
a "Land Before Time" wannabe.

A towering marvel of visual achievement, this film once again restored my
faith in the power of cinema. Every single scene was flawlessly fantastic.
The story was a perfectly plausible scenario of dinosaur life with the by
now familiar disney characterizations. The film wasn't nearly long enough
and that is my only disappointment. The cynics will have to remember that
this film was designed to appeal to a wide range of audience. I did get
the feeling that there may be many adventures in store for the characters,
this film perhaps served as an introduction to the characters. Of course,
I would have still like the meteor to hit at the climax of the film and
then after all the dying, to fast forward millions of years to a museum or
something, showing aladar's bones maybe.....
