Almost unwatchable.

When you have spent $200 million on "the dumber version of The Land Before Time", you deserve everything that comes to you.

Parents, you may enjoy the scenery but remember the dinosaurs talk, so bring your earplugs.

The movie follows a rather dull tale similar to the 1988 animated film The Land Before Time.

The audience is left with a beautiful setting populated by predictable and largely uninteresting characters.

Sadly, there is little sign of the benefits of evolution in the storytelling itself, which sticks too closely to a narrative template seemingly dating back to the Mesolithic era.

Dinosaur mixes state-of-the-art visuals with bottom-of-the-barrel scripting.

O roteiro no faz jus ao colossal esforo realizado pelos animadores.

Had it been any longer than 80 minutes, I would have given serious thought to making an early exit.

Unfortunately, while each of these set-pieces is striking in the visual sense, the story in which they are marred lumbers along much like an aging Brachiosaurus.

Unfortunately, what the film lacks is a good story, good characters, and good humor.

For each of its grotesque 84 minutes I stared at the screen depressed and appalled, realising I was watching something historic -- the moment when feature-length Disney animation became a dinosaur itself.

Compounding the problems is the weird confluence of genuine landscape photography with digital animation.

This film is packed with wonderful eye-candy. The first ten minutes, or so, are dialogue free. They play so well that it is a complete disappointment when the dinos begin to talk.

Once you get over the 'ooh-ah' factor and tuck into the ultraformulaic tale, Dinosaur is a dino-snore.

It's certainly good to see that Disney didn't give us just another song-and-dance romp, but in their attempt to be serious, they forgot to keep us entertained as well.

You begin to get used to the film's pictorial wondrousness -- to take it for granted, even -- and start to realize that the characters and story are exceedingly mundane, unsurprising and pre-programmed.

Tougher-minded children among us may find it hard to sit, without embarrassment, through this bizarre mixture of paleontology, preposterous anthropomorphism, and fuzzy-headed New Age myth-making.

Pure Disney formula.
