Critic Reviews for Planet of Dinosaurs

All Critics (2)

The film is no more interesting than a Saturday morning kid show, but the stop-motion animation is commendable.

Although set in the future, Planet of the Dinosaurs, is pure 1970s camp, with hairstyles and jump-suits that evoke unpleasant memories of the horrible disco era.

Audience Reviews for Planet of Dinosaurs

Planet of the Dinosaurs (1977) ?? Absurd sci-fi of spaceship getting lost on strange planet filled with killer dinos. Derivative, hideously directed and photographed; the stop-motion giant lizards are much better at acting than the real live actors.

If you're smart you'll watch the Mystery Science Theater version of this like I did. The characters are so incredibly dumb for people who are supposed to be astronauts. The only parts I really liked were when the dinosaurs killed attacked them. The rest of the movie is just them walking and complaining.
