Critic Reviews for The Good Dinosaur
If The Good Dinosaur falls low in the rankings of the company's now 16 titles, it is still leagues finer than the flurry of frenetic colors and screwball pacing of the standard children's animated movie.
The Good Dinosaur is by no means a bad movie. But it breaks new ground for Pixar in that it's the studio's first feature that is explicitly-and pretty much exclusively-a kid's movie.
The digital landscapes are meant to be breathtakingly beautiful, but they tend to come across more like very expensive screensavers or immersive desktop wallpapers.
If The Good Dinosaur falls short in the narrative department, it represents a step forward for Pixar's artists.
OK, it's not pushing the boundaries of storytelling, but it certainly does the job.
Audience Reviews for The Good Dinosaur
Somewhat cartoonishly simplified animal and dinosaur characters and a plot we've seen many times before made for Pixar's least successful film of recent years. That doesn't mean this is a failure, there are moments of excitement, a very sweet and touching ending and beautifully animated landscapes. Especially children can experience a thrilling adventure here, only adults may have a harder time relating to the film than many former Pixar hits.
A family fun movie which entertains to the very end.
It is dazzling to look at (if you don't mind about all those rubber-looking characters), but Pixar aims too low with this derivative animation made for very small children - a silly, predictable and forgettable movie about facing your fears, the importance of family and whatever, who cares.
