Plays like a series of cut-scenes from a 1997 PlayStation game.
| Original Score: C
Despite a welcome lack of Disneyfied sentimentality - no tears are solicited for banged-up young'uns - the film never acquires a rhythm.
| Original Score: 2/5
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.
Dull, meaningless and pretty frustrating film.
| Original Score: 1/5
Werner Herzog's grandiose, unintentionally camp narration adds entertainment value, but there's zero educational sustenance in the film's servings of synthetic gore.
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.
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
