Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend Reviews
The biggest problem is the characters, the human ones. The heroes are so unlikable. They have bad chemistry with each other, and often times will have greedy self-serving interests, even after the title character had to just chase vultures off her dead father's corpse. It really sucks when your heroes are acting like your bad guys. Also the violence, on its own I don't have a problem with it, but it goes completely against the tone they are going for. To think this was released by Disney too.
That being said, I like the adventure aspects of the film and felt there were quite a few moments that were genuinely funny without being corny. The baby dinosaur is absolutely adorable.
I really enjoyed the very different look at Africa which seemed quite realistic to someone who's never been there outside of film and has never really done any research.
I did find the film a little too adult for a film that seems geared towards children. So while it is rated PG, I'm not sure if all kids should be watching something like this. Make sure you watch the movie before showing it to your younguns and make the decision yourself.
I always enjoyed this movie, of course i was about 8 years old when I first saw it and was the largest dino fan.
I like the story, I like the acting enough, I remember the male scientist was irritating, thought the female scientist was hot. The dinosaur effects are great for the time, no stop motion or cg or man in a suit stuff.
I see it has terrible reviews here at RT but I have to disagree and say it's a decent film for the time and for dinosaur fans.
