Critic Reviews for Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia
Be warned: Dinosaurs is a little scary. Nothing tries to eat you, which is nice, but with the 3D effect, these ginormous creatures practically perch -- menacingly -- on your armrest.
The film reminds us that in birds, dinosaurs 'have left us only their grace and beauty,' for which, as a small mammal (at least in comparison to a 45-foot-long carnivore), I'm grateful.
An intelligently crafted Imax film that is as rooted in science as it is cloaked in the thrilling images of CGI.
... the perfect blend of scholarly information and totally cool dinosaurs brought to vivid life.
Rare among large-format movies, Patagonia even has a sense of humor, nicely underplayed by narrator Donald Sutherland.
Audience Reviews for Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia
I know that this film was designed to be seen in 3-D IMAX so I cannot give an accurate representation of the theater effect, considering that I watched this in my living room on a 32-inch screen. In the end, 40 minutes just is not enough time to take an audience through the evolution of dinosaurs to their extinction. The largest impression left on me was when the comets started hitting and it finally hit me that the movie only had three minutes left. The dinosaurs are fake enough that children won't be scared but computer animated well enough that we get an accurate picture of Prehistoric life. There was a definitive moment of "Finally!" when some of the dinosaurs began to fight but overall, "Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia" is just a textbook telling of the lifetime of a few dino species.
I remember watching this film at 9 am(because that was the only time you could watch it at the theater at that time) and Loved it. Plus it was in 3D! To those who love dinosaurs, I strongly reccomend ths film. Critics gave it 100% on Rotten Tomatoes for crying out loud! Looking at how much the audience(at the moment) likes this movie(52%), this film is surley underestimated!
Nice educational showcase for 3D/IMAX technology.
