Critic Reviews for We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story
In spite of narrative problems... the film's chief appeal is its central conceit -- that giant monsters... can be transformed into [ceatures] who like to play with children.
Parents seeking innocent kiddie entertainment should know that the dinosaurs are drugged, the children are briefly transformed into monkeys and the Professor is eventually devoured by crows.
It's shallow and kind of dumb, and the animation is routine, and the story isn't much, and the stakes are a lot higher these days in the featurelength animation game.
We're Back is an exercise in endurance -- not only is it dull, but it has such an overwhelming sense of sweetness that it threatens to become nauseating.
Audience Reviews for We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story
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.
I understand and yet at the same time i cant even fathom why nearly all of the film critics universally disliked this film. I might be slightly impartial to the film since its one of those early childhood favorites that inspire those great childhood feelings that rush back to you when your re-watching a old classic that you haven't seen in a while, or completely forgot about for several years. Still, seeing it again for the first time in about 3 or 4 years opened my eyes once again to the unique and wonderfully told story, albeit slightly darker then children's films of today. Along with the wonderfully talented voice cast, this movie is a forever childhood favorite.
