During an attack on a pack of Iguanodon, an egg is separated and ends up with the possession of a group of lemurs. The lemurs care for this egg and the young creature born from it, which they call Aladar. When a meteor shower hits earth, Aladar and his family must leave their homeland. Away from home and as close to danger as they have ever been, they meet up with a huge group of dinosaurs, led by Kron and Bruton. All together they are trying to reach the nesting grounds, but it’s not going to be easy.Written by simon
This movie was shear pleasure to watch. The movie looks visually absolutely stunning and the animation is done nicely. It’s true eye-candy and entertaining as well.
The movie has a typical adventurous story and feeling and is at times spectacular as well. Especially the beginning is impressively spectacular. There are some nicely done action sequences that are at times tense as well. My only true complaint of the movie are the characters. There isn’t really any character development in the movie and we never really get to know the character or care much about them, this is probably mainly due to the short running time of the movie. Also of course the story itself is somewhat predictable but that doesn’t take away any of the fun or entertainment value of the movie.
Dinosaur fans will enjoy this movie as well, unless you’re one of those persons who complains about the accuracy of the movie. This movie is entertainment, not a documentary.
The musical score by James Newton Howard fits the movie like a glove and in my opinion he delivers one of his best and moving scores, in his career.
There is much hate for this movie but quite frankly I can’t see why. If you simply take the movie for what it is, you’ll have a good time watching it. It’s beautiful, adventurous and at times truly spectacular.
