This is a very good adventure story about 2 Brothers & Dinosaurs, 28 May 2006
Author: jdenise-1 from United States

This is a fantastic tale of a place where Dinosaurs still roam the earth. It is not bloody as the Jurassic Park movies but a much more family friendly movie with a lot of action. It's the story about 2 brothers who go on a journey with their father & get separated from him in a place of great mystery & wonder, where they overcome great obstacles and sibling rivalries in a struggle for life. This movie is a little on the long side. It originally played over three nights in 2 hour spots so be sure you have enough time to see the entire movie. David Thewlis role as Cyrus Crabb was excellently portrayed. A very good mini series if you get the chance to watch it.
