The journey of a three-ton Iguanodon named Aladar, who is raised from the egg by a clan of lemurs and eventually reunited with his own kind. With flaming meteors devastating the landscape and water in diminishing supply, the dinosaurs find themselves in a race against time to reach the safety of their nesting grounds. When Aladar comes to the aid of a group of misfits unable to keep up with the breakneck pace of the herd, he makes an enemy of Kron, the stone-hearted leader of the group.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Aurally and visually this creature feature is a treat."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"Offers $200 million in special effects and a script worth about 2 cents. Still, that won't bother the picture's target audience."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Stunning, but can be dark and scary in places."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"It's the small details, like dino-skin, that Blu-ray really brings to life."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"The movie follows a rather dull tale similar to the 1988 animated film The Land Before Time."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"Dinosaur is a fable, and a hugely and sometimes wondrously watchable one, even if its emotions retreat to certain levels of programmed predictability as the film proceeds."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"If the devil is in the details, then this is one devilishly delightful film."
‑ Paul Clinton (CNN.com), CNN.com
"When you have spent $200 million on "the dumber version of The Land Before Time", you deserve everything that comes to you."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Parents, you may enjoy the scenery but remember the dinosaurs talk, so bring your earplugs."
‑ Chris Gore, Film Threat
"The audience is left with a beautiful setting populated by predictable and largely uninteresting characters."
‑ Bob Aulert, culturevulture.net
"You begin to get used to the film's pictorial wondrousness -- to take it for granted, even -- and start to realize that the characters and story are exceedingly mundane, unsurprising and pre-programmed."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"If studios are going to be paying out hundreds of millions of dollars for these films, shouldn't some of that money go to writers whose imaginations match the visuals?"
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"The story doesn't matter much when a movie looks this good, and it's a breakthrough of technical achievement."
‑ Bob Grimm, Sacramento News & Review
"It is the next generation of high technology that further blurs the lines between reality and fantasy."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Visually, it's even more astonishing than the high-profile trailers made it look, an astonishing blend of real-life backgrounds and computer-generated characters. It's a shame that the script seems to have been wholly computer generated as well."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
