My wee boy loves this movie, I've been forced to watch it many, many times.

Reasonably nice to look at, the CGI is pretty effective.

The story is awful, but I'll let that one go if it's intended for a younger audience. Perhaps my only problem with this aspect is that it's more than a little depressing! I won't spoil it for you, but it kindof labours the old "mommy mommy, don't die" bit!

However, more than anything I must wann you about the painful, excruciatingly awful dialog, narrative, voice-over, acting (???). Just bad. Very, very bad. So bad I felt I must write my first ever online review of anything, ever. And that's coming from somebody who's normally forced to watch CBeebies or the Disney Channel.

This film is also known as "Tarbosaurus: The Duel Begins" and "Speckles The Tarbosaurus." You read that right. A befanged multi-ton merciless killing machine of bone, sinew, and armour. Named Speckles.

Well, if you've looked at the impressive lenticular DVD slipcover and case and are expecting a "Walking with Dinosaurs"-style film, get ready for a bit of disappointment. What you get with this film is a beautifully shot but cloyingly saccharine Korean "Lion King" with giant reptiles. Before I get into the good parts of this film (yes, there are good parts, but it's almost all eye-candy), let me just warn you what to expect: "Pterosaur mommies guard their nests all day." "This is the swamp where the scary monster lives." Yeah. You've been warned. The early parts, narrated by a child actor, are almost unbearable for an adult to listen to. It's not the child actor that's nauseatingly bad, it's the dialogue itself. Have sick-bags on standby.

Unbearably twee narration aside (by the main Tarbosaurus character at various stages of his life), this film boasts some spectacularly beautiful scenery, some pretty darned good archosaur reconstructions (though not always in line with current theories, the detail on some of the creatures is phenomenal, including patches of iridescent scales, ruffling feathers, scar tissue, etc). The movie looks jaw-droppingly amazing (probably even moreso in Blu-Ray and/or 3D, neither of which I have), and one could almost forgive some anachronisms (like grass, which didn't evolve until the dinosaurs had been extinct for millions of years, but would be a pain to digitally remove from the film) and inaccuracies (like saying the marine reptile Tylosaurus grows to 100 feet long). But there's that dreadful narration.

We were expecting an "Ice Age"-esque animated movie and were pleasantly surprised at what we got instead. It was interesting, educational, tense in places and even a little sad in others!! I'll admit the script was a little puerile, but after this is aimed at children is it not? I liked it (38), my 6 year old liked it and so did my Mom (58).

I loved it. The story was strong, if a little sad. The CGI was better than expected and the voice acting was done really well. I didn't expect much going into this movie, but honestly I was surprised how good it was. Best advice is don't go into the movie thinking it's some super multi-million box office hit, as you'll be underwhelmed. However, don't think it will be a bad movie, it simply is what it is, and because of that I loved it.

The story has a very good story line BUT the quality of picture i.e. sound; stop starting then press Resume to continue to watch the film, took a lot away from this (what would have been) a very enjoyable film.

I regretted paying the price to watch it in the end as I had to be on hand all the time in case it went crackly and wrong again!!

I thought this should have a review that actually tells you what this is!
I am a HUGE dinosaur fan and when I saw this on amazon I was unsure exactly what this was going to be? A movie? A documentary? Well wonder no more...... It is a bit of both to be honest. It is very much a movie story line ( I won't spoil it thought, think march of the dinosaurs ), but with only a voice over of the main dinosaur ( no actual talking dinosaurs, and no narrator as such, and no floating heads ).
All in all I would say it was trying to get younger viewers to get into the Whole Dino documentary thing, but is a bit too dark in some places to be honest..... It does have some big flaws! The voice of the dinosaur changes as HE grows up, but the infant Dino voice is quite painfully obviously a woman! It is obvious from the beginning that the main character is a male, and I thought the girl voice was a second character to be honest. It took me a good twenty minutes to realise it was an attempt to make it sound like a young boy, EPIC fail I'm afraid, but if you just accept it and enjoy the film the voices do get better as the film goes on.
Like I say I am a huge Dino fan and own all of the dinosaur documentary blu rays I can find, so I can see some very bad mistakes... Grass being my first one that I spotted.... I mean i know it was there in the last days of the dinosaurs, but I mean everywhere is covered in grass in this film! A small thing maybe, but it did start to bug me. And there is a huge mistake in the form of two different dinosaur species wanting to breed! And it's a big part of a scene in the film and I was like..... Wtf? actually makes me think that if disneys dinosaur, and dinosaur planet breaded, this would be the result.
But anyway......
