Critic Reviews for Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (14)

  • Baby turns out to be a real no-brainer. The movie even blows the one moment you'd assume couldn't fail -- the first sighting of a brontosaurus. Instead of a moment of quiet awe, the movie gives us the gee-whiz approach of a Godzilla remake.

  • Most of the budget of "Baby" seems to have gone into the creatures, who nevertheless don't look much better than Gumby.

  • Baby's faintly reptilian eyes are dead. And with them dies a lot of our belief.

    Mar 26, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Dopey entertainment for adults of all ages.

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • Director B.W.L. Norton surrounds the sweetness with a heavy, crude, and far too realistically rendered action plot that effectively cancels out whatever warmth the film manages to generate.

    Jan 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • There may be some nostalgic charm to its Land of the Lost-esque tale of exotic adventure, but those that didn't grow up with it may find that nostalgia isn't enough to make this lost legend worth uncovering.

Audience Reviews for Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend

  • May 14, 2009
    Here is a movie that made my Corny movie of the 80's list! Super Cheesy animatronics represent a family of brontosaurus found in the deep African jungle. A married couple stumble upon them and want to keep them safe from some jackholes who want to capture them and exploit the poor animals and the St. Bernard size BABY Bronto. Cutesy and Corney - it was the 80's what do you expect?

    Some people find dinos living in the jungle. Simple story and lack luster effects make this an ok watch.

    Remarkable technical know-how makes the creatures entirely credible in the 1980's and Baby B is quite irresistible!
