Okay, okay, okay the computer graphics are great, but if you have seen the trailer then you have seen the best part of the movie. Well there is the meteor shower scene that is pretty impressive as well.
Now what about the most important part of a movie; the plot. First of all there is not much plot to speak of and what there is, is hardly original stuff. The first 15 minutes is a Tarzan rip off. Instead of a human being raised by apes, its a dinosaur being raised by lemurs. The rest of the film is a bunch of dinosaurs searching for a valley and water while occasionally getting attacked by big nasty, hungry carnotaurs. Wow, just like The Land Before Time cartoon.
My 6 year old loved it as will most children. He even got scared when some of the dinosaurs fought. However I was hoping for something more.
