The trailer for this film masqueraded as an entertaining adventure filled with dinosaurs. Is it? Hit the jump to watch the full review…

Official Synopsis: See and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth, in a story where an underdog dino triumphs to become a hero for the ages.

Review Summary: It’s painfully clear that there’s a major disconnect between this film and the original BBC material. The toilet humor is rampant, including everything from dino-droppings to dino-barf, and it’s frequently used as a crutch for children these filmmakers think don’t have imaginations. All narration and childish fart jokes should’ve been removed from this movie, so that we could observe the brilliant animation and 3D, and then, perhaps the children in the audience would actually learn something. But, this film insists the only way kids will pay attention is if a dinosaur steps in poopie every other scene.
