The epitome of edutainment
28 August 2004 | by MephitisLotorSee all my reviews

A stop-motion depiction of prehistoric times, "64,000,000 Years Ago" doesn't say anything that dinosaur fans don't already know and isn't entertaining in any meaningful sense, but it does a decent job of portraying on film what scientists of the '70s thought life was like late in the reign of the dinosaurs. The stop-motion animation, while not as fluid and lifelike as more modern productions, is good enough to be appealing. On the whole, it's just average both as entertainment and as an educational short, best suited for younger dinosaur fans (old enough to handle a little bit of blood and violence, and a mating scene interrupted just before it gets explicit) and animation fanatics.
