Walking With Dinosaurs

Walking With Dinosaurs product reviews

During the Cretaceous Period, a dinosaur named Patchi (Justin Long) hatches among a herd of Pachyrhinosaurus.

Patchi's runt status means he must use his wits rather than strength to compete for food with his larger brothers and sisters, particularly Scowler.

After a terrible fire leaves Patchi, Scowler, and a female named Juniper on their own, the rivalry between the brothers escalates to a dangerous level. Patchi must summon his inner courage and strength to become the leader he was born to be.

I had wanted to see this movie since before it was on our screens. I love the Ice Age series and wanted to see them 'real' not done in a cartoon way but actually see the real depth of them. It really is amazing to watch these prehistoric beings walking around, eating, fighting. This movie treats its viewers to some amazing visual aspects but unfortunately the story is rather slow and lacking.

I guess for the younger audience the story is fitting - but I expected more. I found the main characters annoying and did not care for the story at all. It tells the tale of Patches, the runt of the litter and the migration they do yearly when then weather gets to cold. His rise to greatness even though the odds are stacked against him.

To be honest I did not know anything about the movie and was rather surprised when it started that New Zealands Karl Urban was staring. The scenery at times also looked very Kiwi and after some research found out some scenes where shot here but majority was filmed in Alaska. Unfortunately Karl is only in for a short time before the Dinosaurs take over. We watched as a family and my youngest decided pretty early on the movie was not for her. My six year old loved it and enjoyed learning about different varities of Dinosaurs. Where as I was not a fan my husband did not mind it.

I must admit I learnt a bit from seeing this and did not know much about the T-Rex extended family. I loved watching the animals feed and interact with each other it really was thrilling. If only someone had killed the bird in the first scene maybe it would of been the whole package.
