How can you make a dinosaur film this dull?
1 June 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an educational film sponsored by the National Film Board of Canada. And, since they often bankrolled esoteric, artsy and educational films (as well as some genuinely fun ones), you can often assume correctly that the cartoon will not be the sort that is necessarily commercial in nature. "64,000,000 Years Ago" is definitely a film that might not have seen the light of day without governmental financial support as it's VERY educational and dry--which is sad, since it IS about dinosaurs--which should be cool and bloody. Instead, it looks like the kind of stuff they showed to kids in school back in the Dark Ages when I was a kid. The stop-motion isn't bad but it also isn't exactly cutting edge, either. And, by today's standards it's rather quaint--representing a style that has gone by the wayside....and that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Sadly, I kept hoping for something super-exciting in this one, but it didn't ever get that cool (other than a somewhat bloodless impaling)--and the deathly dull narrator and his monotone voice didn't help any. Perhaps worth a look if you adore dinosaurs, otherwise an easy one to skip.
