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.
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.
First off, I love dinosaurs. This movie consists of spaceships, women and dinosaurs in the tradition of Harryhausen. so how did this gem get past my pre-teen years? Featuring actors sporting bushy hair and mustaches, colored jumpsuits doubling as futuristic space-wear, overall clumsy acting, a cheesy synth score and a spaceship interior which looks like it was built in some neighbor's garage, PLANET OF DINOSAURS can't hide its bargain basement production values.
So for that select group of us out there, this is a bargain, as the effects really are quite good and the dinosaurs have plenty of screen time to make you happy, while the script, acting and poor character development add to the charm. This is a winner for fans of bad post-apocalyptic, post Planet Of The Apes low budget sci-fi.
