When originally released theatrically in the UK, the BBFC made cuts to secure a 'A' rating. All cuts were waived in 1995 when the film was granted a '12' certificate for home video. In 2003, the BBFC later re-rated the film to a 'U' certificate for its DVD release in 2004, this being the same uncut release since certification in 1995. See more »
If you are a fan of dinosaur movie,this one won't upset you.I do like a way the screenplay told the story to us.Good for all ages.Wonderfully initiative mixture of cowboy and dinosaur and love story!! ..Good acting and grand western music scores help support the pics very much.Its theme song is as good as a theme for "The Big Country"...I dare say.Also,as for special effects,I can't say anything more to Ray's attempts.
Certainly,this movie isn't the best.But it can entertain you much more than you expect.
