A classic film and an indispensable resource., 17 May 2000
This film is just great fun to watch. It was the first appearance of Dynamation, Ray Harryhausens special brand of stop-motion animation, and it was in colour. For this alone it is worth buying. However, if you are a budding animator then this DVD is an absolutely essential purchase. The extra features will teach you more about the art and techniques of animation then practically any other DVD on the market. The disk is full of features on Ray Harryhausen's work from his first dinosaur animation made in his garage at home to his masterpiece 'Jason and the Argonauts' with insights into how and why he did things.
It is amazing to think that modern films have huge teams of animators to produce their creatures and effects. This film had a team of one : Ray Harryhausen. Enjoy !
