The film's villain, Doctor Eric Kiviat, is loosely based on Dr. Roy Mackal (University of Chicago; biologist, engineer, teacher and biochemist) and his voyages to Africa in search of the legendary living dinosaurs of the Congo, Mokele-Mbembe. Mackal's 1980 Congo trip with fellow cryptozoologist, James Powell, was a featured segment on an episode of "Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious World" television series. See more »
Doctor Eric Kiviat:
[after witnessing the soldiers having just killed the adult male after it charged at them because they had drugged its mate]
You've any idea what you've just done? That was a one-of-a-kind specimen.
No, Professor, there were two.
[Pointing at the adult female, which is still alive]
*That* is a one-of-a-kind specimen.

Underrated Kids' Classic Everyone here on IMDb seems to be beating this film to death just because it has poor acting, special effects, and a cheesy story! SO WHAT? It's a kids' movie!!! I saw this film when it first came out and loved it. You have to be a total SOB to let below average film making get in the way of enjoying this flick about lovable young scientists trying to save a cute baby dinosaur from poachers.
Don't take this film too seriously. Just relax and enjoy this movie with your kids! The plot: Newly wed scientists find dinosaurs alive and well in Africa. But of course there's an evil scientist Patrick McGoohan (Number 6) whom want to kill the dinosaurs and everyone who knows about them.
The scientific couple must save a baby dinosaur and join with a primitive African tribe to rescue the mother dino from captivity.
Like I said, don't take this film too seriously and keep in mind it's geared towards kids.
