Trivia

The specific genus of the ankylosaurian dinosaur isn't identified in the film. It is an Edmontonia. It is unclear why the narration never mentions its name - likely, the creators feared that having two similarly named dinosaurs (the other being Edmontosaurus) would confuse audiences. Unfortunately, some foreign dubs named it Ankylosaurus, which is incorrect, as it was a totally different dinosaur. See more »

Goofs

As the Edmontosaurus gather around to protect themselves, one of them is walking in air, as evidenced by its shadow. See more »

Good & bad
5 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

We watched this last night & I found it to be a real mixed bag. First the good; the animation is terrific. The creatures, the settings, everything is done to a very high standard. Very impressive.

The bad? Pretty much the rest of it. Stephen Fry has a wonderful voice but I found his performance to be totally OTT; like a local am dram performance. Secondly, the pace of the show is s-l-o-w. They somehow even manage to make the chases and hunting scenes appear as if they're in slow motion. Thirdly, it's very anthropomorphic. Possibly, with the target audience in mind (14 and younger I'm guessing), that's the only way to do it, but giving a 3 ton dinosaur a brain tumour & making him forgetful?! Finally, there was no real tension at all. Having given names to 2 of the characters, it was clear from the second we heard their names that no harm would come to them, and it didn't.

So, for younger (or generally non-critical) viewers, this is a beautiful looking docudrama. For the older / more critical viewer, it's a lovely looking but slow, tension-free piece.
