Audience Reviews for We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story

  • Dec 10, 2018
    A goofy kid's film, We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story is a little too juvenile for most audiences. The story follows a group of dinosaurs that are given a brain enhancing food by a time-traveler who then transports them to the 20th century to entertain children at the New York Museum, and along the way they make friends with two children who are running off to join the circus. The casting is fairly impressive, featuring the voice talents of John Goodman, Yeardley Smith, Jay Leno, Martin Short, and Walter Cronkite. However, the writing is rather poor and is extremely heavy handed. And the animation isn't very good; looking dark and grungy. It may entertain the kiddies, but We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story aims too low to be enjoyed by anyone else.

    Another fun animated Dinosaur movie for kids that I liked when I was young. It's really good, it's based on a kids book if I remember correctly. And it's just a fun movie.

    I've always loved how bizarre this movie is. It looks extremely different from anything you usually see, mainly due to the fact that it's about Dinosaurs with thinking minds and living in New York. It's got a nice demented plot about a circus freak trying to turn kids into zombie slaves.
