Excellent underrated miniseries. A future minor classic?
My Take: An underrated and pricey blockbuster of a TV miniseries.
I really liked this 3-part mini-series. It was really an awe-inspiring and fantastic mini-series. Now I'm not saying this because I'm a dinosaur fan as a kid, but also as an observant movie viewer. I mean, as I can see it, it was one of the more big-budgeted production by TV's Hallmark Channel, mostly known for their adaptations of classic and contemporary tales.
The special-effects were great, superb for something that was made for TV. The costumes really suit the environment. The large-scale sets, mostly evident, is really large-scale. It was like it came out of a Cecil B. DeMille's production or from the books by James Gurney, which it was based on. But special-effects and production designs aren't the only elements that elevates it as a large-scale movie. The acting is kinda good to. Although the cast is not as stellar as other Hallmark films/mini-series, but they still perform well. The story is wonderful, which may be nothing if it isn't told well. But it is, providing a dosage of action, adventure, comedy and even a little rarely touched romance. "Prison Break"'s Wentworth Miller co-stars, so most of you fans out there may want to see this.
Anyway, this was a really great mini-series. It deserves to be put to the big-screen, but it may loose some things when it would be edited to shorten it. So, it's okay as it is. A fine, very interesting almost-3-hour family entertainment.
TV movie rating: ****1/2 out of 5.
