Eh
18 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"We're Back!" was one of my favorite books as a kid, and I'd already grown beyond the target audience when this movie finally came out; hence the reason it's taken me 22 years to get around to it (having a 5 year-old also makes a difference). My curiosity derives from how many changes were made from book to screen. Not a whole lot, but it's a different beast entirely. The art design is completely different, new characters and subplots to pad things out, etc. It's alright, not really my thing. But I do think it's kinda sweet that Spielberg put out another dinosaur movie in '93 better suited to little kids. It's nice.

One thing that threw me: this thing's got four directors. Is that a record? It just didn't seem like a ship that needed four captains.

5/10
