This was a very good documentary about the infamous T-Rex. The CGI looked very good and especially in the scenes with the T-Rex.
Valley of the T-Rex basically was challenging the theory that T-Rex was this awesome cold-blooded killer that always hunted its prey. Jack Horner explains his opinion about the fact that T-Rex was probably a scavenger like hyenas and vultures.
He backed up his theory with a lot of good evidence (T-Rex's arms being to small, good sense of smell for sniffing out carcasses etc.). Many digs in Montana's badlands were filmed and I learned a lot about T-Rex.
The problem with this documentary is that it doesn't ask anybody's (partically another palaeontologist's) opinion. It only focuses on Jack Horner and him going on and on how T-Rex wasn't a predator but a hunter. The evidence looked believable but there was probably evidence against that theory that was not shown.
I also wouldn't really recommend this to people who absolutely love T-Rex. This will account for any negative reviews or comments. Again this was a very good documentary, it will probably change your perspective on T-Rex.
My Rating 8.7/10
