Storyline

One of our favourite natural history subjects, the good old dinosaur, gets a makeover and then some in this fantastically ambitious and groundbreaking documentary. Based on cutting-edge palaeontology and the latest fossil records, DINOTASIA presents a series of vignettes about dinosaurs - both familiar faces and some we have only found out about in the past ten years. The film uses CGI to bring the stories to life, but draws on animation's birth in silent film and early Disney to create proper, traditional visual storytelling. Werner Herzog narrates, reuniting with the team behind GRIZZLY MAN and CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS. Written by Picturehouse Entertainment

big disappointment
5 August 2013 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

They bill this movie as being based on the most up to date paleontology but it is sorely lacking in information. Just a bunch of contrived scenes with humanized and unidentified dinosaurs but those are lacking even for what they are. A show like Walking with Dinosaurs has the elements of accurate info with fun to watch cgi. Or if you like realistic dinosaurs and a made up story, watch Disney's Dinosaurs (2000). To be fair I only watched half of the movie because it was so awful. Save some time and skip this one. There are some good Dino documentaries out there like Dinosaur Planet, When Dinosaurs Roamed North America, Clash of the Dinosaurs, and of course all of the iterations of Walking with Dinosaurs.
