  1. There is no reason to have loud unnecessary music that drowns out the commentary!

    Dinosaurs didn’t dance.

  2. I purchased this for my three year old because he is obsessed with TRex but this dvd does not hold his attention. It is good for older kids and adults but not for three year olds.

  3. This blu-ray effectively covers most aspects of the dinosaur story, how they live, behave, hunt and be hunted and how their remains became fossilized which are being unearthed even today by paleontologists whose works are documented in this story. The high definition gives us stunningly clear and majestic landscapes of the Gobi desert and the sandstone areas of New Mexico where most of the dinosaur bones are recovered. However, what really sets this dvd apart is the amazing and accurate representations through CGI of the dinosaurs found in the regions. They literally come to life on your screen and if your speakers are set up for DTS-HD, your neighbours will probably hear their primitive roars. There was also the discovery of a fossilized embryo (or is it foetus) and maybe the crew of Jurrasic Park could extract the DNA directly instead of looking for prehistoric mosquitoes! All in, a recommended collection for both dinosaur buffs and the curious homo-sapien. What prevented me from giving this a 5-star is that I felt more dinosaur species (brought to life through CGI)could be covered like Triceratops, Brontosaurus, etc. Also there is a lack of an epic battle, for example, between a Tyrranosaurus rex and perhaps a pack of raptors. This would make the dvd more movie-like without compromising on accuracy and scientific facts.

  4. With so many incredible dinosaur dvd’s like When Dinosaurs Roamed America and Walking With Dinosaurs, this dinosaur dvd just doesn’t cut it. It is not exciting and is missing much key information. Maybe when it was in the IMAX and 3D it was amazing to view, but nothing special for home viewing.

  5. We got this movie for our grandson’s

    birthday. He is an avid dinosaur “fan”

    and, autistic. It was, and still is, a

    BIG hit. He loves this movie. It is so

    good to see him get so involved with what

    is going on on the screen. He copies the

    actions on screen with his little dinosaurs.
