When a traveling Wild West show comes to town, the natives are frightened by a one-foot-tall horse that is believed to be a bad omen. The superstitious natives try to return the horse to The Valley of Gwangi to avert disaster. Tuck (James Franciscus) and T.J. (Gila Golan) try to help archaeologist Bromley (James Naismith) find the tiny equine in the valley, but they unleash a prehistoric giant monster in the process in this implausible adventure feature. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Best thought of as one of the pictures to get out of the way later rather than sooner when you decide to see everything Ray Harryhausen did."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Cowboys and dinosaurs! Too bad we root for the dinos, but the cowboys win."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"It says something about the production and about Harryhausen's artistry when we realize that Gwangi, the snarling dinosaur created from a tabletop model, is the most realistically alive character on the screen."
‑ Mark Bourne, DVDJournal.com
"How can a dinosaur fan of any age not love 'Gwangi,' in which the title Allosaurus makes his public debut with the unscheduled addition of a screaming dwarf between his jaws?"
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
