One look at this DVD, and viewers won't believe it's all animation. One of the most detailed DVDs out today, this is bound to go down as a classic both in animation and children's features. Dinosaur, released by Walt Disney Pictures, is the charming story of a dinosaur mistakenly raised by lemurs. The special effects of the meteor hitting the earth are so realistic, you'll find it hard to believe that this is an animated movie. Because the movie was released digitally, the DVD is created straight from the digital source, and it shows in the sound and quality. The sound is Dolby 5.1 (other options are THX-certified and DTS 5.1) with French and English tracks. It's available for viewing in both standard and 1:85:1 widescreen versions. Along with the awesome visuals and sound, there are plenty of features to occupy viewers long after the movie is over. Highlights include background on how the special effects were created, a documentary on the sound design, a feature on "building a better dinosaur," and several games, including "Dinosearch" and "Aladar's Adventure." Also included are web links and a dinosaur encyclopedia. Disney went all out with this DVD, and it shows.

I believe that some viewers OVERANALYZED this highly entertaining but obviously FOR CHILDREN film...I doubt it was intended to be 100% scientifically accurate...much like the OTHER Disney movies...or maybe that's just me.

When a meteor shower falls over the home of the dinosaurs, they are forced to travel a long way to the nesting grounds -- without food, water, or shelter, and under the ruling of Chrone, a ruthless leader who believes that only those who can keep up will make it. But then things go too far, and then Alidar comes to the rescue. With steller animation, live backgrounds, and a great plot, Dinosaur will be a hit forever. It truely is a stunning classic.

This is a great introduction for boys and girls who love dinosaurs. The animation is so lifelike and the story is truly touching. Even adults will love this movie. When we first rented it my son watched it four times in one week!

I really wanted to enjoy DISNEY's DINOSAUR, but it was too hard knowing that they were promoting wrong facts. Don't get me wrong, the story was exceptional and the graphics were good (JURASSIC PARK's were better.) but the movie is just - bad. For one thing, there were no lemurs 65 million years ago! They did not evolve for another million years or so. And dinosaurs are not cold-blooded as the lemurs promoted. They are warm-blooded. The reason is this, lizards, for example, are cold-blooded and have to crawl on the ground to generate the heat from the ground. Yet dinosaurs tood upon their hind legs, rising their stomachs from the ground. Since then that they would not be able to generate heat from the ground, and they had to get it from the sun, like a mammal or bird. And the meteor explosion was a great effect, but the dinosaurs were nearly allilahated. The remains evolved into birds. Back to the warm/cold blooded thing. Raptors were a main dinosaur that stood on their hind legs. Yet the movie gave them two different sets of eyelids, which was just wrong! They couldn't have two sets, once again, having Disney promoting they were lizards instead of birds. Next, nearly half of the dinosaurs were not around when the setting took place in the Cretaceous. The iguanadon didn't exist as well as the carnotaur. The brachiosaur did not belong as well. So now we go to the carnotaur, about the only dinosaur that DISNEY had gotten right, except for the time period. Yet could there have been a bigger villian? The carniivore was about as big as the iguanadons. They should have used a T-Rex, making the struggle more difficult and more entertaining for us the viewers. Now this is the last probelem that I'm going to write down in this review: The dinosaurs TALKED! Dear God what was up with that? They were looking like cartoons and they talked! It was just wrong. Everything about the movie was wrong. A sad dissapointment.
