Despite its title, neither of the creatures in this film are actually classified as dinosaurs. Plesiosaur is actually classified as a marine reptile, while the rhamphornycus is classified as a flying reptile. See more »
Well, I originally saw this on TV years ago. Its a pretty cool movie that most people are not too kind to. Sure the dinosaurs effects are cheesy, there are plotholes, etc., but the movie is pretty well made otherwise. Its got some good creepy moments, some good atmosphere, some stylized touches, a little sex appeal, and a really cool finale. Also, a really cool sound track. All in all, a really fun, good piece of Japanese Schlock cinema. Its too bad there is not a original Japanese version availible.
