When this film was made, people thought grass didn't exist until 30 million years after the dinosaurs became extinct. We now know that grass did evolve in the time of the dinosaurs, although it wasn't as common as seen in the movie. See more »
I discovered Dinosaur Adventure via YouTube and even though it looked rather dumb, I decided to keep an open mind and check it out anyway. Well, I wish that I had just followed my gut instinct and not watched it. The problems with it are so numerous that I don't even know where to begin. The fact that it's a blatant rip-off of The Land Before Time (one of my favourites both when I was young and now) is the least of its problems. If its attempt to deliberately cash off on such a classic was the only thing wrong with it, I might give it around a 5-or-6/10 but there's so much more. The animation is absolutely hideous even for the budget, the syncing is horrible, and there's some truly bizarre and distracting sound effects. In fact, the only way I can describe the animation is if it were painted by a 5-year-old and then splattered all over. Plus, I can't even follow it; one second there's a crowd around Tio's egg but as soon as he hatches everyone seems to have vanished into thin air, but that's far from the only confusing moment. The rest of the plot jumps around faster than I can keep track and it seems like Dinosaur Adventure is actually three movies in one: the migration, Tio trying to impress his father, and Tio learning to fly. It's simply too hard to keep track of. All in all, this movie is a mess. A poorly-animated, poorly-synced, annoying confusing mess. Avoid this movie like the plague.
