Mind blowing
31 January 2001 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

The concept behind this series is so brilliant, you wonder why nobody thought of it before. Do a dinosaur documentary, but do it in the style of, say, "Mutual of Omaha's Wild America" or something.

The result is astonishing.

The thing is, you end up not marveling at the special effects but at the fact that *you do not notice the effects*. You'd swear the filmakers really did go to the future Petrified Forest to get their footage. It's unreal.

Simply put, this is what "Disney's Dinosaur" had mad delusions of being.

There were, granted, a few scenes that had me going "I... don't... know..." (most notably the mother sauropod laying her eggs with an ovipositor that'd shame the "Aliens" queen and then leaving them there), and the music tends to be *very* hyperdramatic. All complaints aside, this is true movie magic. And who can complain about that?

Note to teachers: In case you're thinking of showing this to the kids, I'd give this a PG-13. It isn't any more violent than your average animal documentary, but there's quite a bit of -gasp!- saurian sex.
