Storyline

Ally Hayden is a teenager who shares her father's interest in dinosaurs and archaeology. When he brings a mysterious fossil back from a dig, she is convinced it's the egg of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. After accidentally knocking the egg to the floor, Ally begins to experience visions, as if she was being transported back in time to the Cretaceous period. There, she encounters several different dinosaurs, including her favorite, the mighty T-Rex. Written by Matthew D. Wilson

T-REX should have been buried...
19 September 1999 | by (Toronto, Ont.) – See all my reviews

IMAX should have thought smarter for its first "IMAX-3D" film. The movie is extremely bland, boring, and hard to watch after the first fifteen minutes. Could anyone stand looking at the girl's huge "IMAX" face for more than ten seconds? Did anyone find the plot intriguing? Ally tries to win the affection of her father with a project detailing the similarities between birds and dinosaurs. The result is an extremely gut-wrenching movie: the kind that makes you want to leave but you don't anyway. As the saying goes, some reaction is far better than no reaction. So if you to yawn and groan at a movie that should have had a better story to match its 3-D effect, by all means enjoy.
