4.0 out of 5 stars best looking walking with yet, 17 May 2011
This review is from: Walking with Monsters [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
This d.v.d has only three episodes,plus a 30min documentry,but don't let that put you off.

The annimation for the most part is a step ahead of earlier programmes in the series,with special mention going to the creation of DIMETRODON,and EUPARKERIA.Also the camera moves around a lot more,with some interresting angles,giving the feel of a moderen wildlife documentary,for example THE SPY IN THE DEN series.

Their is a dramatic narritave running through the episodes,with animals seemingly on the verge of extinction,which is open to debate.However since we are talking about extinct creatures,I personnally feel that once you've seen them you want to try to understand why they became sucsessful and ultimately why they became extinct.Their is a common theme running through the episodes that is how moderen animals evolved,and focuses on key events in evolution,and so to the first episode.

Episode one-This is the weekest visualy of the three,and starts off in the sea with the developement of eyes,exo skeletons,and the first vertibrates.The scorpions and fish are clearly c.g.i but a realistic looking gaint amphibian,and it's dramatic story arc salvage the episode.

Episode two-Starts off with giant lizard eating spiders,before going onto the star creature of the series DIMETRODON,the well kwown sailback lizard.The dimetrodon sequance features probably the best work in the entire walking with series,e.g camera work as mentioned earlier,movement is dynamic and realistic,and to be honest they just look really amazing,mean and full of menace.I would love to see Primeval use Dimetrodon as their creature of the week may be munching on human sun worshipers that would be fun[well you know what I mean].

Episode three- Features mammal like lizards,and is probably the most consistantly good episode of the three.However it is the 55 c.m four legged lizard
EUPARKIA that steals the show,with it's ability to run on it's two hind legs.The annimaters do a great job,looking almost totally life like ,you can see how dinosaurs wiil eventually come to be.

All in all a good value package,which I strongly reccomend,buy it if you are interrested in the nuts and bolts of evoluotion.
