A 90-minute documentary about life before the dinosaurs. Starting from the Cambrian Period (530 MYA) and ending at the Early Triassic Period (248 MYA), Walking With Monsters shows the life and death struggles prehistoric creatures before the dinosaurs went through. It also portrays an accurate picture of our first ancestors.Written by
As in Walking With Dinosaurs and Walking With Beasts, some CGI models were reused for multiple genera, in order to reduce costs. For instance, the labyrhintodont amphibian in the Late Permian segment is a recolored version of the Hynerpeton from the Late Devonian segment. The therocephalian in the Early Triassic segment is a reuse of the cynodont from "New Blood", the first episode of Walking With Dinosaurs. Further, the dragonflies attacked by the Euparkeria in that same segment are the same CG model as Meganeura from the Carboniferous segment. See more »
There are two widely available variations of the show's original British version:
One that has all three episodes being separate. This version has previews and recaps at the beginning and end of each episode. Also, at the very end there is a never-before-seen shot of an Allosaurus walking on a Jurassic plain.
The other version combines the three episodes into a one-and-a-half hour long movie, with the episodes flowing together. This one lacks the new shot of the Allosaurus. It begins with primordial Earth being shown from afar, whereas the other version lacks this shot and starts out with a closer view. It also has an extended ending, with more stock footage taken from Walking with Dinosaurs as the narrator talks about the mammals' ancestors. The other version lacks this scene.
Walking with Monsters is the last of the Walking with series which truth to be told brought the prehistory to life. This one focuses on the life before the age of dinosaurs when creatures, even stranger than those we saw in the previous installments,walk the earth. The animation looks terrific and the story here is pretty much the who our bodies and all the bodies of any organism alive today.From my point of view makes sense to do that because back then was the time when all the organisms were much more closely related and to see the way they became was a awesome experience. To see these series end, made me express bitter- sweet feelings .From one hand you feel like when the summer vacations before going to college are over, you know only too well that ,that this time is going to be be the most relaxed time that you will ever have. But on the bright side you are happy to see what you put so much time end in a high note and not milked to death like the movie franchises with sequel after sequel and horrible spin offs. In conclusion I love it, although the fact that it was only three episodes long in bug me ,but apart from that I have no reservations suggesting to someone who love good documentaries in general.
