Nothing new, horrible effects
19 May 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Don't just walk away from this clunker - run! There is nothing new at all covered in this sub par documentary styled fiasco. Any child that's studied dinosaurs in grade school already knows what this one's all about.

The opening sequence was a great indication of what was yet to come - cartoonish dinosaurs do battle - and manage to walk across a sandy plain without leaving a single footprint.

Then the movie resorts to shots we've all seen hundreds of times - yep dinosaur skeletons. Again, nothing new.

But wait, next we are going to go on a real dig - in Mongolia. At first you think at least the scenery shots will be fantastic, but they are out of focus, totally taking that away from the experience.

More disappointment as we move to Mexico and more blurry scenery and lack of story.

Intersperse these shots with incredibly horrible CGI shots of water and sand floods - I'm talking incredibly bad effects. First year students would do at least 20x better.

Also be warned before you shell out your hard earned money - this is one short movie.

Definite skip.
