  • Summary: A love letter to fans of graphic novel-style film vignettes and classic film animation, Dinotasia gives one of our favorite natural history subjects a makeover like never before, told in a purely visual style not seen since the classic era of silent filmmaking or the pioneering early work of Walt Disney Studios. Based on current research findings from recent paleontology studies, Dinotasia uses groundbreaking CGI to bring to magnificent, terrifying life many creatures that have been discovered in the past 10 years. Cinema legend Werner Herzog narrates in his inimitable style, reuniting with the team behind Grizzly Man and Cave of Forgotten Dreams to serve as a tour guide to Dinotasia’s strange world.

    If they're never fully convincing as photo-realistic figures, they're certainly as much good gory fun to watch as any old-school monster kids had to stick with dreary first acts to see.

    This decision to avoid treating the dinosaurs as surrogate people for easy identification is both the film's boldest move and the source of much of its problems.

    Neither educational nor engaging.
