Bless the wonders of Netflix Instant Queue! I would have never even heard of this delightful slice of almost 50 year old chesse any other way! No, it's not good. But it's entertaining! An insanely ridiculous premise teamed up with some silly stop motion animation and you get DINOSAURUS! Any movie with an '!' at the end of it, deserves a look! Besides, where else would you get a character named 'Dumpy'?!

This is one of those movies you can't take seriously. The stop motion animation is amateur, yet, this becomes a silly/cute quirk especially when the T-Rex finally gets ahold of the leading lady. The actor's take themselves way to seriously. The little boy, Julio, is exactly like Beaver Cleaver. If you're ready to laugh at old school B-Movies, this is the film you're looking for!

Some movies make your eyes roll with their very concept--in this case a construction crew on a Caribbean Island building a harbor uncovers a frozen Tyrannosaurus, Brontosaurus, and Neanderthal. Never mind that each of these three creatures was separated by millions of years. Anyways, lightning revives them and the Tyrannosaurus goes on a very discrete rampage--rather than eat his victims, he just carries them off in his stubby forearms and apparently eats them once the camera goes somewhere else--while the Brontosaurus and the caveman befriend a little boy. Of course, the caveman gives his life to save the heroes from the human villain while the brontosaurus is fatally wounded by the T-Rex and then drowns in quicksand. The T-Rex--after proving to be unbothered by Molotov Cocktails--is then knocked over a cliff by a steam shovel and his dead body sinks to the Ocean floor. Over this image "The End" morphs into a big "?"--a trademark of the director, clearly as The Blob ends the same way. The film is largely inoffensive--except for some simply awful stereotypes such as a town drunk who is blatantly Irish and a black guy on watch duty who falls asleep at his post. The special effects consist of awful rear projection, amateurish stop-motion, and some rather effective puppets for close-up shots. The T-Rex's animation is particularly pathetic as he walks like a flat-footed duck. If you're looking for a mildlyt diverting b-movie you could do worse, but you could do a lot better as well.

I loved this movie a lot as a kid and I still do. The dinosaurs looks nice despite their inaccuracies. The are many flaws in the movie, and the caveman felt unneeded yet essential to the story. Interesting characters and a great climax.

Ha ha ha, there are worse ways to waste an hour and a half of your time. Logan will love this in a couple years.
