The Secret of Saurus Rock
30 March 2009 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

The Land Before Time VI: The Secret of Saurus Rock, the sixth installment in the Land Before Time series. Again another decent enough sequel that gets a very unfair rating, this movie was a little step below the fifth sequel, but still I did enjoy watching this sequel because it focused more on family. Also just the responsibility some kids have to face when they have a new member in the family and how hard it can be to watch out for their younger relatives. A lot of kids could relate to this story. We also have a good moral that it's OK to ask the adults for help if a child does feel responsible for something they did and wants to fix it. The Secret of Saurus Rock certainly is a good story and once again just gives us lighthearted clean fun for the family and kids.

Littlefoot's grandfather tells the children a story about "The Lone Dinosaur", a legendary longneck who once protected the Great Valley from the most ferocious sharptooth ever to live. However, the sharptooth left "The Lone Dinosaur" with a scar slashed across his right eye. Soon after the battle, a huge monolith that resembled a proud sauropod, having life-sized tyrannosaur teeth arranged around his neck, came out of the ground during an earthquake. The dinosaurs called it "Saurus Rock". The legend also states that if anyone damages the monolith, bad luck would descend upon the valley. A few days later when the kids are playing, Littlefoot accidentally falls off a cliff. Just before he hits the ground, a strange longneck dinosaur rescues him. This longneck introduces himself only as "Doc" and gives no knowledge of his history. Littlefoot is intrigued by this newcomer, who is scarred across one eye and displays prior knowledge of the Great Valley. For the preceding reasons, Littlefoot assumes that Doc is the Lone Dinosaur. Inspired, Cera's infant niece and nephew, the twins Dinah and Dana, go to Saurus Rock without anyone noticing. Later when the friends are playing, they notice that Dinah and Dana are missing. When they finally reach Saurus Rock, they see Dinah and Dana on the top. As they climb up to rescue them, Dinah and Dana fall off the top and land on Cera, causing the life-sized stone tooth on which she is standing to break off. Over the next few days, ill fortunes ranging from injuries to a tornado plague the valley. The adults blame Doc, in whose wake the misfortunes have apparently come, while Littlefoot blames himself and his friends, recalling the breaking of Saurus Rock. But Littlefoot is convinced that he can fix everything by going back to break off a dinosaur's sharp tooth to save the valley.

The Land Before Time VI: The Secret of Saurus Rock is a good movie, I really liked the tribute to the lone ranger. Granted I know some kids won't get the little tribute to him, but it's still fun for them to see a dinosaur kind of cowboy, as silly as that sounds, it was good for the film. I also loved how Littlefoot just had this big heart and wanted to fix everything for his family and the other's in the Valley. The Secret of Saurus Rock is very fun to watch, I think it's a little notch below from what I've seen so far in the series, but not enough to say that this was a dreadful movie, I liked it and do recommend it for the kids and family.

5/10
