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.

Great educational movie
13 December 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie and have seen it twice (I'd see it a third time, but I believe this is the last week it will be playing. It was a great film for the entire family: I didn't have to worry about inappropriate violence (the food chain is part of nature, so that's okay, and even in this respect the movie was quite tame), and the whole family learned some really interesting things. I was very impressed by the computer graphics, especially the quetzalcoatl. One thing I would have liked to see was a map of what the world looked like at the time, including the location of what is now Patagonia (and my two year old wanted to see T. rex, but he doesn't quite have a grasp on geography). I would love to see more films like this!
