Dino Drivel and Balancing the Equation
30 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once again, the people of Earth have polluted the old planet. An alien race that looks like veloceraptors has offered them a solution. Eventually all Earthlings will be able to transfer to a planet where they can escape the problems. This focuses on a man who prepares the people to travel (to jump, as they say). He lost his wife to the polluters and his daughter is back on Earth. He meets a young woman who is about to engage in the process. Unfortunately, once a person leaves, the original body must be destroyed. This is usually no big deal because the body is just a shell. This jump, however, doesn't go as planned. While she makes it to the planet, her body is still alive and aware. To "balance the equation" the dinosaurs require the man to kill this woman. This is the complicating factor that must be dealt with. Of course, it's all about our humanity and what we must do for the greater good. It is presented in an interesting way and works pretty well.
