Goofs

At around 49:30 into the film, the young boy inspects an American coin. You can't see the date on the coin but the boy says it's from 1797. You can however clearly see that the image on the coin is the Statue of Liberty, which was not completed and dedicated until 1886, almost 100 years later. See more »

A missed opportunity
4 May 2015 | by gafmongerSee all my reviews

I'm reading a lot of reviews claiming that this is the "worst film ever". It's not. There are easily two or three worse films. The problem for this film is that it sells itself as a serious piece of dinosaur-themed sci-fi, as if going head-to-head with the JP franchise is something easily achieved. Unfortunately, we're now judging it against a tough set of criteria, and this film was never going to pull it off.

In short, the acting is poor, the story is dull and the daft sci-fi approach doesn't gel with the scientific approach. The CGI isn't utterly terrible, but they overstretch themselves. There has been some effort to update dinosaur and pterosaur portrayals, but overall, they're flippin' awful. The 'azhdarchid', or whatever it is, is unbelievably bad. Seriously. See if it's on Youtube so that you don't have to sit through the whole thing. The tyrannosaur stands around yelling at everything, and only when everything is already half a mile away does it give chase.

Your kids might like it, but just make sure you're not stuck watching it with them.
