Did You Know?


Although the fact that small, raptor-like dinosaurs were feathered has been known since the end of the nineties, this is one of the first movies to actually depict many of its dinosaur characters with a feathery coat. Jurassic Park III (2001) was the first movie to feature raptors with any feathers at all. Originally, Disney's Dinosaur (2000) would also have included feathered raptors, but budget and animation issues forced the creators to depict them incorrectly with scales. See more »


Due to the changes and updates to dinosaur knowledge which are constantly being discovered, there are small inaccuracies in some of the creatures' appearances. See more »

How to spend 80 million dollars to nothing
26 December 2013 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Walking with Dinosaurs could be a good documentary movie if it wouldn't be ruined. I can't understand how anybody in Hollywood got an idea to order a good quality documentary film from BBC then go and ruined it with stupid idea to film totally unnecessary beginning and end to it, write a idiotic script and hire few neighborhood kids to read it over the film. If the idea was to make a children movie where dinosaurs speak, I'm sure the dinosaurs were animated to speak. Now the result is totally mish mash. It feels like somebody got an idea to record documentary film from television, then film with a home video camera totally unnecessary beginning and end to it. Ask 6-years old child to write a script and then dub the whole film with neighborhood kids and then send it to worldwide theatrical distribute. I can't understand how any Hollywood studio could spend 80 million dollars to this and release it to worldwide. If the budget were 8 million and it was released straight to DVD, Then I could understand it. Now this is totally underestimate film audience. I wish I could get my money back. I give one star for beautiful animation, not anything else.
