Poor John Leguizamo, who hopefully got well-paid to voice a stereotypical Latino bird providing a stream of nonsensical narration.

Painful

By johnbagley3
I am a movie fan in general. I felt like I was watching a movie where the cast of Mystery Science Theater 3000 had hijacked a decently animated film and replaced the dialog... So so bad....

Great movie if your kid(s) love dinosaurs!

By enriquealerts
Great movie ... don't expect the graphics visual effects or a great plot. If your sole goal is to take your dinosaur-loving kids to the movie, then it's worth it....

Disapppointing

By margaretvaldez
The movie was boring and a poor attempt to educate on dinosaurs. The special effects were nice, however I felt it was a dumbed down version of the Disney Dinosaur movie that I loved. Might be worth...

Walking with Dinosaurs

By Kbootsma7070
The movie was very good, but you need to sit down with the younger children and really explain the difference between meat and plant eaters. I took my 6 year old grand daughter and she asked a lot...

Great message and informative for kids.

By jodiep633
This movie had a combination of documentary text features for kids mixed with a great story of being a true hero. The kids loved Pachi's story as did I. The bird narrator was entertaining as well....

Good for young kids

By jsimsic
Our kids liked the movie. They love watching dinosaurs, so it was fun for them. It was educational. The acting was not very good, and the story could have been better, but they enjoyed it....
