The Allosaurus got a complete visual make-over for this special. They look much different from their original appearance in the second episode of Walking with Dinosaurs (1999). See more »
The feasting Allosaurus never cast a shadow on the Diplodocus carcass. The shadow of one Allosaurus actually goes underneath it. And when it lifts up the slab of meat in its mouth, the shadow of the meat seems to be floating on its own. See more »
The DVD version is missing the thundering sound effects of diplodicus feet hitting the ground during the herd attack. See more »
Big Al Ballad is basically an extra episode of the Walking with Dinosaurs mini-series and it focuses on the life time of an Allosaur named Al, the originality in the name just kills me!! Anyway it is a great time revisiting the Late Jurassic and seen in a sense from the point of view of a predator, how was this environment. I love this documentary , because it feels like a 30 short movie with dinosaurs as the main characters and the fact that they made Al just an animal ,which it was and we still rooted for him ,is a sign of how well-made is this episode. Keep in mind that this, about 30 minutes long episode, makes you feel emotions for a creature ,which is dead for about a hundred forty five million year and there are directors today who can not achieve that with trained humans for the job! In the end just add it in your dinosaur documentary collection and show it to your kids.
