This two-part series, a sequel to Walking with Dinosaurs featured Nigel and his "team of fellow explorers" encountering prehistoric life over a large range of time, and seeing creatures not featured in the original series.
Against a backdrop of global catastrophe, Animal Armageddon brings to life an unprecedented vision of ancient Earth. From the very beginning, the course of evolution has been dramatically ... See full summary »
This educational show explores many scientific questions and topics about the universe (Big Bang, the Sun, the planets, black holes, other galaxies, astrobiology etc.) through latest CGI, data and interviews with scientists.
Using the latest technology the amazing lost world of the Cretaceous, Triassic and Jurassic periods of Earth's history, when the dinosaurs reigned supreme, is brought stunningly back to life. The series provides insights into how these mammoth creatures appeared, how they survived for millions of years and probes the mysteries of their sudden disappearance leaving only a fossil record to show they had ever existed!

The longest shot to render was from the second episode, when a herd of Diplodocus passes by above the camera. Each frame took more than an hour to render. See more »
A recurring animation error throughout all of the episodes is how the body parts and muscles of the CG animals clip through each other while moving. Wrinkles and skin patterns appear and disappear, and sometimes strange bulges stick out of the animals, seemingly moving independently from the surrounding flesh. This kind of error is perhaps the most noticeable on the shoulder region of the Diplodocus, as the shoulder muscles and the upper part of their front legs "merge" and separate repeatedly at each step.

I viewed "Walking with Dinosaurs" in my Geology class last week. I can honestly say this is the first movie I've ever seen at school that I would buy to watch over and over again at home. The graphics and the stories are simply amazing. Since scientists have only fossils to go by, they of course do not know as much about dinosaurs as they would have us believe. However, the graphics and story lines in this film give you a feel for how the Dinosaurs "probably" were. Many of the scenes resemble wildlife shows in which they follow a lion on the hunt, or an antelope escaping danger. I found myself actually pulling for a turtle to get to the sea, before a gigantic mammal weighing over a ton ate him. The graphics are better than Jurassic Park, however, unlike Jurassic Park, the information is insightful, giving the audience a visual feel for how scientist believe ancient creatures acted. If you're interested in Science, History, or Dinosaurs then you will love this film. If you are a science teacher, show your kids this film! They will love it.
