You know what it wants to be, but it doesn't manage it.
10 September 2017 | by dan-bealecocksSee all my reviews

I have low expectations for children's films because they're usually terrible. This film isn't very good, even by those low standards.

You can see that it wants to be a family friendly action film, with a bit of heartwarming stuff between the kid and his dinosaur.

It fails pretty hard at that. There's no humour or charm here. There's no chemistry between the actors, or between the actors and the cgi creatures. The set pieces are weak.

Both my child and I got bored very quickly.

It's a shame, because it could have been so much better. We deffo need films like this.
