Lame special effects,
17 February 2015 | by JasonofchildsSee all my reviews

Words cannot describe how poor this film is. It's sort of staggering that it got made. The story is at best boring, at worst total nonsense; the dialogue is astonishingly bad and the acting off-the- charts terrible, even for child actors; and even the animation is lousy, with dinosaurs that look very unrealistic, even cartoonish at times (in a bad way). More seriously, there are also parts--I am thinking of some scenes featuring a tribe of black children, referred to as 'natives'--that strike me as in quite poor taste, even racist. Thankfully my six year old son got bored quickly-- not sure what I would have done if he'd wanted this one on repeat! Honestly, with so many great kids' movies available, I wouldn't recommend you bother with this one. There seem to be a number of 10/10 reviews on the site, which is mystifying. Either they weren't watching the same film as me, or they know the filmmaker personally. (I suspect it's the latter, since this is quite obviously a very low budget film, clearly made mostly on someone's home computer.) Do yourself a favour, guide your kids toward another film. This one's for the wastebasket.
