Storyline

When Paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from the Black Hills Institute of Geological Research made the world's greatest dinosaur discovery in 1990, they knew it was the find of a lifetime; the largest, most complete T. rex ever found. But during a ten-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes, and competing paleontologists, they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur but fighting for their freedom as well.

Quotes

Terry Wentz: You go out in the field, and you look up in the sky, and you see the stars, and some of that light that's coming down to your eye has been traveling for millions of years. So you look up, and you're looking at the past, and then you look down, and you are looking at the past. You know, those dinosaur bones are like millions of years old, and that light left there maybe at the same time that you are looking... it's just you are kind of sandwiched in that world, and it's really a wonderful place ...

A must watch for dinosaur lovers and the truth
8 January 2015 | by adamleeplaysbballSee all my reviews

This is a must watch for anyone interested in dinosaurs and perfect for college courses.

This documentary is definitely a roller coaster not like other documentaries as you learn from the hero's, the villains and you learn about corrupt law.

I went and seen sue in Chicago and this definitely wasn't the story they have on Sue, so I recommend to anyone who has seen this amazing T.Rex to watch this documentary and find out how Sue nearly didn't come to the public eye, and how much of a struggle the true owners went through trying to keep her were she belonged.

I wish all the best to the Larson Family.
