Critic Reviews for T-Rex: Back to the Cretaceous
Leonard seems confused about his mission: amusement-park ride or educational film? He tries for a little of each and ends up with a hodgepodge.
The Imax 3-D format continues to evolve toward narrative maturity, without bothering to ask whether viewers want it to.
Instead of giving its eponymous protagonist center stage to strut and fret and sit in the audience's laps, it spends its best energy throwing a watered-down, imitation-Spielberg story in your face.
It represents the pinnacle, so far, of 3-D filmmaking, and even apart from the technology, it's a very watchable little movie.
The film is the sort likely to whet active young minds to know more about the past.
