It's undeniably slanted and doesn't cover as much of the story as it should, but Dinosaur 13 makes for gripping documentary viewing, flaws and all.

The storytelling raises more logistical and legal questions than it's equipped to answer. But what Miller does have, for anyone unfamiliar with Sue's fate, is a story with a suspenseful climax.
In his eagerness to create a David-and-Goliath story, and with his distractingly pro-BHI bias, Mr. Miller fails to ask a lot of questions.
The fate of some very old bones may not sound like compelling cinema, but when they compose the 65-million-year-old skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus rex that was 41 feet long and 18 feet high back in the day, all bets are off.
"Dinosaur 13" is "Kramer vs. Kramer" for paleontologists ...
These events would have been better handled in a single installment of Dateline.
"Dinosaur 13" may not be the best documentary, but as a scientific soap opera, it's a doozy.
Riveting entertainment, Dinosaur 13 is one of those happy accidents of documentary filmmaking.

Any documentary can be slanted to a particular point of view, but most filmmakers try to be a bit more subtle. Cry me a river, "Dinosaur 13."
Even if the filmmaking is one-sided, the story is more compelling than it sounds.
We see much of both sides in Dinosaur 13.
After a promising half-hour or so, "Dinosaur 13" becomes less convincing and less involving, particularly as the real-life narrative peaks halfway through.
