We’ve had the great pleasure of reviewing some amazing movies recently here at Two Kids and a Coupon and one of the blu-rays that we recently checked out from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and BBC Earth Films that was  70 million years in the making was Walking with Dinosaurs The Movie, an awe-inspiring adventure, that just recently stomped into stores everywhere.  Here’s a little bit about the film.

WWD-018 - Patchi grows up to become the herd’s formidable leader.

 

Hailed by viewers for its explosive visual achievements, Walking With Dinosaurs is “Jurassic Park meets The Lion King” (The Today Show) and “…too good a visual treat to miss” (Philadelphia Inquirer).

 

Experience the spectacular story that brings dinosaurs to life and the viewer back in time. Directed by Barry Cook (Mulan, Arthur Christmas) and Neil Nightingale (Meerkats: The Movie) and the writer behind the hit film Happy Feet, Walking With Dinosaurs The Movie features heart-warming performances from an incredible ensemble of Hollywood’s biggest stars including: John Leguizamo (Ice Age, Rio 2), Justin Long (Alvin and the Chipmunks, Dodgeball) and Karl Urban (Star Trek).

 

Satisfy your omnivorous appetite with tons of interactive bonus content including:

  • “The Ultimate Dino Guide” where hatchlings of all ages will be immersed in their own personal journey to uncover the greatest secrets about their favorite dinos.
  • Test your skill by learning a whole new language with “Match the Call,” and hear how Dinos communicated with their friends and foes.
  • “Interactive Map” takes the viewer on an interactive tour of where dinos roamed the earth, uncovering the same places people live today.
  • Become a dino expert as you watch the movie and follow along with the pop-up “Brainosaur Trivia Track”

Filmed with the latest in cutting edge 3D technology, Walking With Dinosaurs The Movie taps the masterminds behind visual hits like Avatar, using Cameron Pace Fusion 3D technology to fully immerse viewers while recruiting animation house, Animal Logic (The Matrix Trilogy, 300), to bring digital dino magic to life by creating photorealistic dinosaurs based on paleontological research from world experts retained by the BBC.

Synopsis:

The gigantic voice talents of Justin Long (Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise) and John Leguizamo (Ice Age franchise) take you on a thrilling prehistoric journey the whole family will enjoy! In a time when dinosaurs rule the Earth, the smallest of the pack — a playful Pachyrhinosaurus named Patchi — embarks on the biggest adventure of his life. As he tries to find his place in a spectacular world filled with fun-loving friends and a few dangerous foes, Patchi will discover the courage he needs to become the leader of the herd…and a hero for the ages.

WWD-047 - Patchi, left, with his older brother Scowler.

I admit, when I originally saw the previews for this film, I did not allow my children to see this movie in theaters. I thought (based on the original previews) that it would a lot more dramatic and even violent based on the previews shown. However, watching this blu-ray with my kids beside me (and my remote close by just in case I needed to pause or fast forward), I was really pleasantly surprised with this film. Walking With Dinosaurs The Movie uses amazing animation to bring dinosaurs to life, and combines a story that has both educational and entertainment value for the whole family. My kids really got caught up in the story of the lead character trying to make his way on his journey, and as a parent I was impressed at how the educational factor of the dinosaur names and facts were worked into the film to help educate kids.

This film does include some very mild gross out and rude humor including poop jokes that kids will find entertaining (my four year old thought they were hilarious) and there are a few fight scenes where characters that might startle very young viewers, but nothing very long or very intense. They are brief and not very alarming and then the story quickly moves along to the next scene.

Walking With Dinosaurs The Movie is rated PG and is now available at retailers everywhere and you can also order from Amazon here.
