      We follow the story of Patchi, the pachyrhinosaurus, as he grows up to lead his herd. What we have here is an anti-Pixar film. Whereas that company produces film that can delight both parent and child in equal measure, this is a film that the young and old can revile together. It’s actually kind of awe-inspiring how so many intelligent people can combine their efforts and end up with such a mess. The original BBC TV production was a fascinating documentary series that I enjoyed as much as my young son. The film is a prime example of losing faith in the source material and changing it into something we have seen before in fear that the audience is too simple-minded to appreciate on the big screen what they have already demonstrated their love for on the small screen. This means adding juvenile dialogue, including the vomit jokes that are requisite for any modern family film. The result is absolute garbage. I’m not swayed by the impressive effects. These days, everything including my cousin’s wedding films, has great CGI. When my six-year-old son, who loved Turbo and adores Ultraman, says your film is “stupid,” you know you have utterly failed.

      You can watch without the annoying voiceover!

      We took our kids to see this at our local movie theater's summer films for kids program, it was so painful! The ridiculous "dialog" (though the mouths of the dinosaurs don't move with the dialog!) and bookending scenes are just horrible. But this blu-ray gives you the option to watch the "Cretaceous Cut" with all of the annoying garbage they tacked onto this movie. If you have kids who like 3D and dinosaurs then this will be a hit, but for their sake and yours watch the Cretaceous Cut!

      The opening sequence features Urban as paleontologist Zack, who is bringing his nephew and niece to a dig site in the wilds of Alaska, though only his niece seems excited by the prospect. When they arrive at a trailhead, Zack and the girl take off while the teenaged boy stays behind, at which point a talking (well—there's talking, but no lip movement) crow arrives to get the kid interested in prehistoric times. The crow morphs into a primeval bird named Alex (voiced by John Leguizamo), who then introduces the audience to the main thrust of the story.

      Here is a movie that could have been great: either let the dinosaurs ACTUALLY speak or stop pretending that they are "speaking in your mind." I found it very jarring to listen to incredibly contemporary dialogue coming out of beasts millions of years old. The story is good, but it loses credibility by dialogue "pretending" as if the dinosaurs are talking. It works, I guess. For little kids, maybe. I just wish it was either narrated or have the CGI characters actually talk. This is a rental at best. Would you like to rent mine? lol

      Would have been a lot better movie if the dinosaurs mouths moved to the voices. Almost looked like a college students try at becoming a producer. Had really high hopes for this movie as I love dinosaurs. Was also a little let down there wasn't a lot of different dinosaurs, no T-Rex :( Was like a documentary that they decided to add voice to at last minute. I still think my grand children will like to watch it, am putting would recommend if you have children that love dinosaurs.

      I am rating the product, not the movie

      I bought this movie because it had a digital copy. They fail to mention you have to have a disc drive to redeem it. I would love to be able to tell you what the movie was like and review it. Unfortunately, since I can't download the digital copy that I bought (since I don't have a disc drive), I can't watch it. Buyer beware - if you are getting this to get the digital copy, you have to have a computer with a disc drive. If you don't, just buy it online or wait until it comes out on NetFlix.

      Well I recall there was a traveling animatronic exhibit called walking with dinosaurs, and I was wondering if this was like that since I had not seen any of the trailers. I bought the movie on a whim for the kids since they have gotten into dinos. To our surprise it was decently entertaining for adults as well as for our kids. Its similar to the Disney Dinosaur movie, except in this case, the Dino's don't visually talk with their mouth, so you have to take it as it is.

      Good 3D, Familiar Plot

      Walking with Dinosaurs is a 'middle-of-the-road' film, with some great 3D moments (e.g., forest fire scene). The plot is a little familiar with Disney's CGI attempt at a prehistoric coming-of-age tale. The attempts at humor that would entertain adults in the room seems a little forced. That said, it is a beautifully animated film, with some pretty good cinematography for the 3D medium. I have a young son who is a big fan of dinosaurs, and he thoroughly enjoyed it.
