Walking With Dinosaurs

2

Don't roar before you can walk

Although it cuts a visual dash, this big-screen treatment of the BBC’s documentary series is vandalised by the American, ‘keeping it real’ voiceovers for characters like Patchi (Justin Long), a young Pachyrhinosaurus migrating south with his family through the dangers of the Cretaceous period.

Despite the action freezing occasionally to introduce each species, the movie panders to the patronising notion that kids prefer farting stupidity over entertaining education.

Not a patch on Disney’s Dinosaur – and to add insult to injury, the dinos’ mouths don’t even move.
