I watched this movie a long time ago as a kid and all that I could remember about it was the fantastic animation and a dinosaur living with a family of lemurs. I watched it again today and it blew me away. The animation looks so real (much better than Disney's Pixar works), many of the main characters are lovable, and the suspense is perfect for both kids and adults.

Most enjoyable. Disney does an excellent job - the story was captivating and looked so real

"This movie is excellent. If there's one movie that I've enjoyed this summer besides Gladiator, this is it. The graphics are breathtaking, the characters are cute like most Disney characters, the story is good, and there's more to be said, but it will take to long. The first I heard of this wonderfull movie was when I rented Tarzan. Then I saw it in theatres and loved it. The graphics will blow you away. The desrtruction of lemur island was a huge spectacle. This movie deserves a Special Achievment Award for Best Graphics. I recommend this to families with little kids. I think they'll enjoy the non-extinction story. This is a movie for the whole family to sit and watch. It also offers some good laughs. SEE THIS EXCELLENT ACHIEVEMENT of am movie."
Fun and Exciting

"I am not sure what critics were expecting when they shot this movie down. It is a fun and exciting adventure for children and adults alike. It may be a little too scary for children under 6, so be warned. Let's get one thing straight, folks. Dinosaur is a movie for CHILDREN. So, don't go in expecting to see the second coming of Jurassic Park. The movie does offer brilliant CGI special effects and breathtaking scenery. I like the story for kids because it stresses teamwork and the value of every individual. The lead character, an Iguanadon named Aladar, is very likeable and I found myself rooting for him time and again. Was the movie expensive? Yes. Is it one of Disney's best ever? No. BUT, it is fun and exciting. There are SO many movies out there for adults. This one is a winner for kids. Don't cheat your kids out of enjoying it because they will."
Impressive animation, weak story

"I thought a lot about this review. I'm an animation buff, so I can well say that this film received the maximum rank on animation - the amount of details and thought that was put into every movement and shot is admirable, and the result shows. It is certain that the animators did an excellent job - even went down to details such as having the muscles of the dinosaurs vibrate when the foot hits the floor. Sometimes I actually forgot that this was an animation movie, and mistook it for a National Geographic feature.The story, on the other hand, is rather disappointing. It seems like the development process stopped after the story became reasonable. The characters are only skin-deep, and it is frustrating for someone who had already seen a couple of movies before that this one brings nothing new to the screen. It's sad to notice so many 'deja vu's while watching, seeing so many thing that you have already seen before, especially that the main character - Aladar - is an orphan dinosaur raised by monkeys, carries a close resemblance to Disney's previous feature, Tarzan.Two thumbs up for the music - it really hits the spot. The composer captured every moment so naturally that it fits like a glove. Nothing I say can convey the impression, so you might as well see it for yourself.All in all, an amazing animation feature with a weak plot. This film - in itself - receives 4 stars from me, although if I had calculated my impression on the Collector's edition, I would have definitely lowered it to 3. It simply wasn't worth the extra money I added. The second DVD contains very little material, and I really expected more from a highly documented production such as this one to include more material. People purchase this item to get more information about the animation process, and I really feel like I wanted more. I really think that I should have bought the regular edition and saved some cash."
