Movie Reviews

Fascinating
Joshua Lewis | San Diego, CA | 07/30/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Reading Richard Dawkins' "The Selfish Gene" parallel with watching episodes of this awesome vdieo series (not intentionally) really was a moving experience. I knew halfway through TSG I would never look at humans the same way again, and was awstruck by the awesome power of evolution in relation to the age of the earth. I was curious how accurate this video series would be, but it is very accurate. It covers almost all aspects of evolutionary theory including animal aggression, kin altruism and of course the evolutionary adaptations that various species have gone through in their millions of years of existence. This is worth the money you pay because there are plenty of hours of video and each "period" is covered from the earliest sea animals through the dinosaurs to land animals and humans. The video is all computer generated, obviously, since no video footage could possibly exist for our ancestors (did I even need to say that? haha), but it's well made. It isn't very cheesy at all. I highly recommend this video series for anyone interested in the theory of evolution and behavior of these fascinating animals...our distant relatives! (creationist nutcases: save yourself the time and money)."

"I purchased Prehistoric Earth, a Natural History, which is a 6 disc set, a "Walking With" Collection because it contained all of the really important discs in the evolutionary series from the beginning of life to man. Disc 1 is Before the Dinosaurs; Disc 2 is Walking with Dinosaurs; Disc 3 is Allosaurus plus extras; Disc 4 is Prehistoric Earth; Disc 5 is Walking with Prehistoric Beasts; Disc 5 is the Making of Walking with Prehistoric Beasts; and Disc 6 is Walking with Cavemen.

There were other collections entitled Walking With, but they were incomplete. Prehsitoric Earth is the only collection that gives you the whole big picture.

The series was well done, and the recreations were based on scientific and physical evidence.

I recommend this collection to those who want to see the whole big picture.

High quality infotainment

"This is an excellent series for introducing people to prehistoric life, and is beautiful in the way it envisions what life may once have been like.

Be forewarned that there are numerous artistic liberties taken with the facts in this film. It frequently shows animals interacting that never lived together, though most of the time animals LIKE those pictured lived together.

So, it's not a hyper-accurate scientific documentary, but it's illuminating, and gives people a lot to think about. I find that, for my schoolkids, the information is "accurate enough" and that many times they become interested in the material and learn more deeply about the information in the film on their own."

"Excellent Video. I highly recommend these videos to any Dinosaur enthusiast or to any Science teacher out there. It is worth watching these videos with your entire class. Great Educational tool."
