Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Inspired by the BBC TV series that first aired in 1999 this is the feature-length story of Patchi the pachyrhinosaurus (voiced by Justin Long), who experiences the perils and joys of life during the Cretaceous period 70 million years ago. No problems arise with the brilliantly animated prehistoric creatures or the visually spectacular Alaskan landscapes. But what completely ruins any natural awesomeness is the jarring High School Musical-skewed voiceovers and a script that plays to the lowest common denominator with endless poop and butt gags. Further irritations include redundant live-action bookend sequences with Karl Urban trying to get his two young charges interested in paleontology, and the fact that every animal's arrival on screen is annotated in freeze-frame. It all makes for a jarring combo of lecturing and inanity that has more in common with Barney and Friends than the original ground-breaking series.
