Enjoyable entertainment
26 February 2003 | by (Madison, Alabama) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie as a kid and I recently got a copy of it. Aside from obvious plot holes, this is an enjoyable film. I love the music in this movie and the dinosaurs are cool. It's a great film, just as long as you don't take it too seriously. I recommend it if you like Japanese films or monster films.
