What it's about:

You’ll meet dinosaurs more real than you’ve ever seen as you embark on a thrilling prehistoric journey, where Patchi, an underdog dino, triumphs against all odds to become a hero for the ages.

Patchi’s heroics and antics resonate in any era, but he is also a product of his times and stomping grounds – the latter part of the Cretaceous Period, about 70 million years ago in a land we now call Alaska.

What the critics thought:

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

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

The movie looks great, the writing is peppered with moments of wit, and there's even an educational component built in as dinosaur facts are displayed on the screen.
- Neil Genzlinger , New York Times

However well-intentioned the movie may be, it spills over with flat cutesy humor, making a slog out of an experience that should be filled with wonder.
- Tom Russo , Boston Globe

For the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth.
