good documentary
28 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

for fans of jurassic park, this movie is a must. It covers just about everything about the creation of the Dinosaurs. We see interviews with Spielberg, Michael Kahn, Stan Winston, Phil Tippett and Michael Lantieri. It's all very interesting, but i wish they also would've talked with the actors. That would've made it even better.
