An awful rip-off! Virtually NO dinosaurs! Don't go!
This is the very worst of the IMAX 3-D movies, and most of them are pretty awful.
When you go to this movie, what do you want to see? Dinosaurs in 3-D, am I right? That's what you want to see, that's what the trailers promise you, and that is the very thing you DON'T get. There is, without exaggeration, MAYBE two minutes of dinosaurs in this 45-minute film.
The IMAX movies are made for a huge audience of kids, so they're always cramming them with wholesome stories of youngsters who are just trying to find themselves. That's great, but I came here to see dinosaurs. No. Instead we get some girl with a VERY BROAD acting style wandering around the Natural History museum at night having PSYCHOTIC BREAKS in which she thinks she's seeing dinosaurs. Which would be fine, if there were more dinosaurs. But NO... let's meet PALENTOLOGISTS! Whooo! Big excitement! PALENTOLOGISTS IN 3-D! Guess what? I could follow some crazy girl around a museum for FREE, and that would be in 3-D, too.
Which is not even to mention having to sit through the wretched "story" about how she feels neglected by her womanizing yuppie scumbag father, played by Peter Horton (formerly of "Thirtysomething") with the same smug arrogance he always has. Our protagonists mother is nowhere to be seen, so what are we supposed to think about the out-of-place and POINTLESS flirtation dad has with his pert young assistant while neglected daughter is at home? We're supposed to think that it's a lot cheaper to film bad ABC Afterschool Specials than it is to show dinosaurs.
This film is a RIP-OFF SUPREME. I actually found the IMAX website and wrote to them to complain about it (no free tickets yet). I can't even imagine that a child would enjoy this. SAVE YOURSELVES! I'VE SACRIFICED MYSELF! YOU DON'T HAVE TO! If you want to watch a rip-off of Jurassic Park just rent Godzilla.
