Movie Info

The good old dinosaur, gets a makeover and then some in this fantastically ambitious and groundbreaking documentary. Based on cutting-edge palaeontology and the latest fossil records, DINOTASIA presents a series of vignettes about dinosaurs - both familiar faces and some we have only found out about in the past ten years. Werner Herzog narrates, reuniting with the team behind GRIZZLY MAN and CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS. (c) Official Site

Despite a welcome lack of Disneyfied sentimentality - no tears are solicited for banged-up young'uns - the film never acquires a rhythm.

Dull, meaningless and pretty frustrating film.

If they're never fully convincing as photo-realistic figures, they're certainly as much good gory fun to watch as any old-school monster kids had to stick with dreary first acts to see.

Plays like a series of cut-scenes from a 1997 PlayStation game.

Dinotasia is narrated by Werner Herzog with his customary shock and awe.

[A] well-meaning but listless compendium of unconnected prehistoric CG dino-vignettes that is as sure to bore children as it is to bemuse adults.

Werner Herzog's grandiose, unintentionally camp narration adds entertainment value, but there's zero educational sustenance in the film's servings of synthetic gore.

This decision to avoid treating the dinosaurs as surrogate people for easy identification is both the film's boldest move and the source of much of its problems.

Audience Reviews for Dinotasia

Dinotasia claims to be cutting edge 'palaeontology' and have 'cutting edge SFX' based on the latest 'fossil records'. The truth is that you've never seen anything like it before because you've never seen anything as bad before. It makes the Ice Age films look like documentaries. I hope Werner Herzog got paid good money for his brief narration. Avoid at all costs.

A low budget is no excuse for such low quality. Not even Herzog can save it.
