Storyline

If it weren't for a series of cataclysmic events, a comet impact being first on the list, our planet could well still be the domain of dinosaurs. Following Pr Rodolfo Coria, a world-reknown Argentinian paleontologist, we visit sites of major discoveries he has contributed to in Patagonia and travel back in time to see these amazing beasts come to life in 3D. Patagonia has given us the largest living animal to ever walk the Earth: the titanesque plant-eating Argentinosaur, and its nemesis, the Giganotosaur, a bipedal carnivore that could easily challenge the famous T-Rex.

Drab Imax attraction.
4 September 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

DYNOSAURS - GIANTS OF PATAGONIA is a big brother of those underfunded educational movies teachers used to feed through sixteen millimeter projectors. The factual content is intriguing - monster footprints surviving to our own time, the world as one land mass with one ocean - but the presentation lacks energy.

The CG animation is cut-price unconvincing in the wake of the JURASIC PARK movies. The attempt to involve us in the one critter, followed from an egg, fails because the creature has no personality, as well as not being plausible. The helicopter footage is imposing in 3D but a lot of the scenics appear to have no depth and the effects shots, showing activity reflected on the lenses of glasses self consciously placed or on a lap top screen, don't add anything of value to the texture. There's lots of snapping at the camera.

The admirable Donald Sutherland's commentary could have been delivered by the science master to much the same effect.

Time was when IMAX attractions were an event outing. The producers were able to suggest that making them was an exciting activity and La Geode had the great pre-show running on the inside of it's Buckmaster Fuller dome. I miss that.
