Storyline

70 million years ago dinosaurs ruled the Korean Peninsula the same way they ruled the rest of the earth. At that time the part of the land now known as Jeonnam Yeosu was the forest habitat of numerous dinosaur species: Tarbosaurus. The youngest of a family of Tarbosaurs, Spotty is a curious and playful child. Along with his mother and siblings, he lives happily in the forest, waiting patiently to learn to hunt. When that day arrives, it marks the beginning of a long and painful journey into adulthood for Spotty. The cunning One-eye, an older Tyrannosaur looking for a new home, attacks Spotty's herd one day and, smelling sure victory, viciously tears Spotty's family away from him. Now on his own, he meets up with another lonely, lost Tarbosaur. Blue Eyes becomes his constant companion for two decades and the mother of his own children. But fate is fickle and Spotty's troubles with One-eye are not over, and revenge, death, fear, and sadness are all in Spotty's future - as is happiness ... Written by Stanislav S, Sochi, Russia

A kiddie dinosaur movie when it could have been better
30 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tarbosaurus was one of those movies where the technology was excellent but the movie wasn't. Right now, IMDb is running 3.8 points on this, and as I am a lover of dinosaurs I was merciful and gave it that much.

The movie comes from South Korea and their animation was really good. Their sound effects were generally good too. Unfortunately they ruined it all with an overly anthropomorphic set of cutesy characters. Oh, the fun dinosaur family. Single Mom, oldest son, younger two daughters and then the little boy. Oh how cute.

The dinosaurs were also far too intelligent. Note the boulder being used as a weapon against the ankylosaur. Tool using dinosaurs, come on! The motivations were not logical for predators. They took unnecessary chances and they wasted opportunities.

For a movie out within the last few years, they also messed up a lot on Dinosaur facts. They put the movie at 80 million years ago and have velociraptors. The velociraptor found were from 75 to 71 million years ago. The velociraptors also had big feathers on their arms. They showed them with a "mohawk punk rocker" bit of feathers but that's all. Worse yet, they showed protoceratops and pukyongosaurus. They were from the EARLY cretaceous, tens of millions of years earlier. They said the torosaurus (like a triceratops) broke off its horns and showed them as hollow. The "horns" of ceratopsians were solid bone, not hollow horn.

I could go on and on, but you get the picture. They were so close but they blew it.
