Product description

Product Description

Transporting viewers to locations across the globe and back in time through tens of millions of years, Planet Dinosaur 3D brings to life the most awesome and amazing creatures that ever lived, rendered in visually stunning 3D technology. Most were discovered in the last 10 years and entailed a rewriting of the prehistory books. Palaeontologists now know that dinosaurs spread to every part of the globe, and evolved in ways so monstrous, horrific and bizarre they make T Rex look very tame indeed. Unlike any dinosaur show before it and shot in Stunning 3D CGI this is a completely immersive visual experience studded with curious facts and jaw-dropping action as well as charismatic monsters brought to life on screen. Presenting a brand-new global perspective on the prehistoric era, the series recreates the creatures, their habitats and how they lived, from analysing their bones to watching them fight to the death.

Amazon have combined reviews for both "Planet Dinosaur" (the TV docudrama series) and "Planet Dinosaur 3D: Ultimate Killers" (the one-off additional episode). The main series consists of six 30-minute episodes, while the one-off 3D episode is just under 60 minutes long.

Both are fantastic! They recreate the prehistoric world, showing the environment these dinosaurs lived in and how these creatures survived. The CGI special effects are awesome - and what you see looks very realistic. While 'Walking with Dinosaurs' was, in all likelihood, more popular - as it was the first TV series to use great CGI effects for these monsters - this show is more spectacular.

It's action-packed and educational. As an adult, I thoroughly enjoyed this show. As did my young nephews. As such, I recommend it for all age-groups. If you're fascinated by dinosaurs, you'll probably love this!

Another, otherwise fine disc, ruined by raucous music. You will need your earmuffs, not earphones for this one. All the natural noise that must have been present at the time of the dinosaurs; yet the only way the producers could express themselves was by deafening music! Amazing!

While I thoroughly enjoyed Walking With Dinosaurs & its various spin-offs, I personally felt it was slightly too orientated towards family entertainment & that there was some scope for a bit more scientific content. In Planet Dinosaur, the balance is perfect - once again, we see CGI monsters hunting & fighting but this time, get brief explanations of where such species roamed, their size compared to humans, etc. Also, many scenes have been directly correlated back to actual fossils - for instance, if we see a predator bite its prey in the neck, we are then told that a fossil with such an injury was actually found. Thus we are reassured that such scenes are plausible & not merely thrown in to entertain.

As the introduction says, "we're living through the golden age of dinosaur discoveries. All over the world, a whole new generation of dinosaurs has been revealed." As such, the focus is on newly discovered dinosaurs which laymen like myself may never have heard of before. These include predators even larger than Tyrannosaurus Rex, the gargantuan Argentinosaurus (wonder where they found that one?!) & recently discovered feathered dinosaurs, including a massive ostrich-like creature which was "like finding a mouse the size of an elephant."

Compared to Walking With Dinosaurs, there's more content, more new material, the CGI is better quality & it's still presented in a package which is entertaining for the whole family. John Hurt's narration is also superb. It's a fine example of the BBC doing what it does best.

The 3D effects were quite good, but i found the animations overall unconvincing, as I did much of the explanations in the dialogue. I think they try to be too clever and make out what are only theories and speculation to be fact. (As they do with cosmology)
