Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"an insufferable family adventure whose impressive animation is consistently undercut by cartoonish self-awareness."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, TheWrap
"Walking With Dinosaurs is too good a visual treat to miss, especially if you catch the 3-D version. But don't expect to enjoy the predictable, paper-thin story."
‑ Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
""(A)beautifully animated but plot-thin kids film that borrows heavily in the story department from both the Land Before Time and Ice Age movies, as well as various Disney animated classics.""
‑ Jeff Vice, Cinephiled
"I realize scientists can't prove dinosaurs didn't communicate telepathically, but I suspect the filmmakers' decision to go telepathic stems more from financial concerns than artistic or scientific ones."
‑ Dann Gire, Daily Herald (IL)
"The film should have been called Walking Very Slowly With Dinosaurs. And as well as being shown in 2D and 3D, the posters should have included that the film can also be seen in Zero D, which is the format you experience the film in when you fall asleep."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"The only solace from the uninspired characters and crammed-in factoids are the gags about poop and puke - juvenile, yes, but also appropriate for the film's "back to nature" ethos."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Village Voice
"You could write "Walking With Dinosaurs'' off as harmless filler for the under-5 set, except that the only female dinosaur, Juniper, exists solely to moon over Patchi, who as a hatchling lost part of an ear to a winged predator."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Walking with Dinosaurs 3D has gorgeous, meticulously detailed CGI, but also way too many stupid jokes about poop and puke."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Some of the character transformations are rushed (such as that of Patchi's older brother) and I don't quite think there's enough here to keep youngsters entertained."
‑ Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane
"[The] inevitable big-screen brand expansion of the Walking with Dinosaurs property proves to be as slickly-packaged an endeavour as you'd expect from any franchise entrant."
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space
"You'd think it'd be hard to screw up a movie about dinosaurs, and yet Hollywood keeps doing so."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Collee piles on references to such distinctly human concepts as ninjas and ballet, while 21st-century expressions ("Worst migration ever!") and a forgettable selection of pop tunes feel instantly biodegradable."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"Basically Fox took a concept with wide appeal and reduced it to children's fare."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"As I gazed, slack-jawed, at the fantastic visuals of wWalking With Dinosaurs,' I could not fathom how it came to be paired with the hideous, low-brow dialogue. And then I think I figured it out."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"With no attempt at lip-synching, the detachment of the voices from the main characters is more supernatural than 3D."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
