The good old dinosaur, gets a makeover and then some in this fantastically ambitious and groundbreaking documentary. Based on cutting-edge palaeontology and the latest fossil records, DINOTASIA presents a series of vignettes about dinosaurs - both familiar faces and some we have only found out about in the past ten years. Werner Herzog narrates, reuniting with the team behind GRIZZLY MAN and CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS. (c) Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Despite a welcome lack of Disneyfied sentimentality - no tears are solicited for banged-up young'uns - the film never acquires a rhythm."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Plays like a series of cut-scenes from a 1997 PlayStation game."
‑ Edward Havens, FilmJerk.com
"Werner Herzog's grandiose, unintentionally camp narration adds entertainment value, but there's zero educational sustenance in the film's servings of synthetic gore."
‑ Simon Kinnear, Total Film
"Dull, meaningless and pretty frustrating film."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Dinotasia is narrated by Werner Herzog with his customary shock and awe."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"This decision to avoid treating the dinosaurs as surrogate people for easy identification is both the film's boldest move and the source of much of its problems."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine
"If they're never fully convincing as photo-realistic figures, they're certainly as much good gory fun to watch as any old-school monster kids had to stick with dreary first acts to see."
‑ Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
"[A] well-meaning but listless compendium of unconnected prehistoric CG dino-vignettes that is as sure to bore children as it is to bemuse adults."
‑ Adam Lee Davies, Little White Lies
