In Dinotopia even the dinosaurs speak, not to mention that all the people in Dinotopia speak perfect English. See more »
The crocodiles that show up in the movie are labeled "mosasaurs". However, mosasaurs were actually fully water-bound animals that were close relatives of snakes and monitor lizards. They had fins, not legs like crocodiles. See more »

Dinotopia is a fantastical adventure story that the whole family can sit down and watch together. Although it isn't mind-blowing fantastic, it is very watchable and mostly enjoyable. The main cast is made up of newcomers or not-so-easily recognizable actors and some very interesting CGI and Animatronic dinosaurs ("Zippo" and "26" really stick as as super-great). The pace is a little slow and the plot is a little predictable, but that doesn't make this mini-series any harder to get into. It is an interesting story, with some stunning visual sequences, that has most definitely gotten me addicted to it. All the same, you can still feel the story's morals being forcefully instilled on you as you watch the story unfold. All in all I give it 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.
