Did You Know?

Goofs

The dinosaur children obviously belong to different species than the supposed parents. The main character Tio looks like a two-legged theropod (meat-eating dinosaurs), but his parents appear to be four-legged sauropods (long-necked plant-eaters). See more »

'The Land Before Time' once again gets the blatant rip-off treatment
6 August 2016 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

It is easy to see why the animations of Dingo Pictures are relatively obscure, though those who have had the misfortune of seeing any of their output (which along with their equally low-budget computer animated counterpart Video Brinquedo have not once made anything worthwhile) but cannot forget their awfulness.

As was said before, it is hard to know where to start when there are no redeeming qualities whatsoever, and even for a studio with next to nothing worthwhile 'Dinosaur Adventure' is one of their worst. The animation is appalling, even for low-budget animation, the flat colours, very simplistic backgrounds and lack of detail and derivative, shoddy, recycled (some lifted directly out of previous Dingo Pictures efforts) and creepy character animation as well as a style that makes art of primary school children who draw and paint in half an hour or less seem more accomplished.

Music always sounds misplaced and never fitting with what's going on, not to mention that it has little breathing space even in scenes that are in dire need for it. The script is incredibly repetitive and juvenile, with over-used and completely out of place swearing that makes one question who the target audience was meant to be, that it will insult any adult is bad enough but even young children will feel dumber after hearing some of the dialogue here.

The story blatantly rips off 'The Land Before Time' (which is actually a great film), and feels stretched and 'Dinosaur Adventure' is not even that long. It also has incredibly plodding pacing, is very disjointed and goes nowhere a lot of the time.

Characters are excruciatingly irritating and a few irrelevant to the story. Not a likable or interesting character among them (with the annoying and unintentionally creepy bird and the douchebag of a father figure faring the absolute worst).

Meanwhile, the sound effects are bizarre and randomly placed and the voice acting is amateurish even by low-budget animation standards, often being annoying, poorly recorded, creepy-sounding and incomprehensible and even ill-fitting.

Overall, every bit as abominable as Dingo Pictures' first 'The Land Before Time' blatant rip-off 'The Little Dinosaur', and among their worst. 1/10 Bethany Cox
