plot

Recent discoveries and a breakthrough in technology will introduce new and unique dinosaurs that are more real than ever before and put moviegoers in the middle of a thrilling prehistoric adventure, where an underdog dinosaur triumphs against all odds to become a hero for the ages.

Verdict

“Walking with Dinosaurs is visually appealing but the shoddy script and the juvenile gimmickry take away from the experience and make this a disappointing fare.”

The flashback device is often used casually, without quite caring about the implications of it to a film’s structure; but the way Walking With Dinosaurs employs flashback is so ridiculous that it’s downright bizarre. The entire story is narrated through flashback, but one wonders what purpose did the present day portions of the film serve. Had it been narrated in real time without the annoying voice-over popping up incessantly interrupting the action, perhaps the impact wouldn’t have been so bland. The plot is the same old good-hearted protagonist come of age against a slew of hurdles – sort of like Slumdog Millionaire with one-liner gags for for 5-yr olds. It’s the film’s abominably insipid treatment that makes it a painful watch. Its use of cinematic techniques is but juvenile and simplistic, its drama too perfunctory, its action too soulless and there was exactly one occasion when I found myself disarmed and laughing; and none of these aspects congeal. The film’s protagonist is called Patchy, we might as well extend that description to the movie itself.
