Did You Know?

The unnamed dromaeosaurs from the Early Cretaceous segment were based on fossils that, during the show's production, turned out to have belonged to a more basal coelurosaur dinosaur. Thus, an unnamed coelurosaur was also added into the story, however the dromaeosaurs were kept despite there having been no direct evidence that they lived in the presented ecosystem.See more »
Factual errors: The Quetzalcoatlus model suffers from many anatomical errors, since for some reason the designers and animators didn't use the references that the scientist consultants sent them.See more »

Best movie about dinosaurs since Jurassic Park, 6 May 2016
Author: tankace from athens

When Dinosaurs roamed America is in one sentence what Walking the Dinosaurs the Movie should have been: a journey of the kingdom of these real life dragons. Dispute the fact is centered in the USA I like very much, because it focuses on showing the dinosaurs as creatures of flesh and blood, while here and there gives you a bit of an explanation of what the evidence at the time showed us for them, like examining the body of a victim of a crime and by its anatomy and injures find out how it lived and the manner of its death. Prite awesome! To the technical view the CGI are beautiful and its a joy to watch it ,altough like with the CGI of the early '00 are a bit dated by todays standards ,but that does not diminish them at all , rather it show how much work was put in to this project even with a budget of a TV movie the the turn of the Milena. Keep in mind this the era of television before Game of Thrones, Arrow ,Flash, Breaking Bad and the Marvel's live action series of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, during this time the most watched shows were for the most part like the Big Brother, X- Factor and romantic comedies with annoying character and not funny colorful ones of How I met your Mother. Basically the TV series at the turn of a century were made just to fill the time between the News and the afternoon flicks and in case you do not remember there was then no Netflix or Youtube, in order to have alternatives. In simple words this overlook documentary ,like his "brothers" of the Walking with series ,in my point of view ,showed that TV programs could be entertaining and a good place to invest in order to draw audiences at a regular base. In summary, give it a watch, if you have not already, it is a great time.
