Four stories of varying quality concerning four dinosaurs and their struggles to survive.
Because its a Discovery Channel Production, the place where the landmark series Walking with Dinosaurs played in the US and because Discovery played up the similarities one will have to make a comparison. In my eyes Walking With Dinosaurs is the clear winner, thats not to say that Dinosaur Planet is bad, its not, its just much too long for what it is.
Where Walking was a semi documentary (but mostly a best guess) on how dinosaurs lived. Here we have hour long stories about the fights for survival of four different animals. We follow them as they try to survive in the various locations they live in with each animal getting name in the narration. Its a dinosaur version of Wild Kingdom. The problem is that each story goes on for an hour. Thats all fine and all but there isn't enough story to hold the attention for an hour for each of the characters, especially since the eat and be eaten theme gets a bit too over played.
I liked it at first, and probably would have enjoyed it more in small bits instead of the four hour marathon I saw it in.
Worth a shot on cable, especially if you love dinosaurs. Not sure about a rental and certainly see it before you buy it.
