Walking With Dinosaurs Review
And yes, back to the voices. Only four characters could talk; the bird and our three Pachyrhinosaurs. But once again, the voices were out of place. The mouths of the characters rarely moved and definitely weren't synced to the voices. But the voices were there and we were supposed to just believe they belonged to the characters. Remember Mystery Science Theater 3000? It was as if that gang got together and did a dinosaur documentary as one of their gigs. Except instead of making fun of it, they tried to be completely serious the whole time. It was rather ridiculous.
Overall, I can see Walking Dinosaurs as a movie that really young boys may enjoy. Like boys ages three to six. And it seems like the type of movie that you would find on Netflix in a few years and put on for your younger kids either early in the morning or just before bedtime in order to keep them preoccupied for a bit. But this is not a show for adults. And it's definitely not one you want to spend money on. Don't even bother Redboxing it. If you want to watch a good dinosaur movie, just re-watch The Land Before Time or Disney's Dinosaur. I give Walking With Dinosaurs a 5 out of 10. And that's just because of the good CGI and enjoyable credits music. Movie quality itself would be a lot lower.
