For the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. "Walking with Dinosaurs" is the ultimate immersive experience, utilizing state of the art 3D to put audiences in the middle of a thrilling and epic prehistoric world, where an underdog dino triumphs to become a hero for the ages.Written by
Originally the dinosaurs where not going to speak at all and the film was going to be a silent, slightly less kid-oriented, animated documentary with narration. At the last minute the studio hastily hired actors to voice the dinosaurs after the animation had been rendered which is why the dinosaur's mouths don't move when they speak and when they do the lip synching is off. After the film was released it was panned by critics with the main criticism being the awkward voice-overs. See more »
In the begging of the movie the Zack, Ricky and Jade are driving on a two way highway in Alaska. Like in the rest of the United States of America the lines in the middle of the road should be yellow instead of white to mark traffic going in opposite directions. See more »
The overall story is one of a misfit runt overcoming obstacles as he grows up. We've seen the story before, nothing new. CGI is impressive and they even had enough sense to include footprints the dirt, so it seems more like the dinos are grounded, more real. It was hard to tell if the background was CGI or real life film w/ dinos added. The studio decided to frame the dino story with a modern day teenager not wanting to see his uncle in Alaska. Totally unnecessary, didn't need it, wasted time. Each time a new dinosaur entered the story, the movie did a freeze frame, the dinos name and an explanation of the name was give. Very disrupting. Then the dinos would use that name to refer to that dino-as if we would call each other Homo Sapien. A lot of the dialog was a bit too cute with references back to the modern world. I took my kid, he liked it, but that was probably because it was a movie about dinosaurs regardless of content. I found it mildly annoying. Strickly kids fare.
