4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic images May 5 2009
By A. Volk #1 REVIEWER #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series is really tough to beat for its fantastic special effects. The dinosaurs look gorgeous, and the producers went to great lengths to find appropriate filming locations that portray environments very similar to those in the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. The episodes are interesting to watch, and feature a wide range of different dinosaurs. All of the "classic" dinosaurs are included in this series, with a few extra thrown in for variety. This series is a treat for adults and children, so I only have a few complaints:

1- The episodes are short: 30 minutes or so each. That makes it easy to go through the six episodes in a short period of time.
2- The bonus disc is a "making of" disc. It was interesting, but I would have really appreciated extra information about the dinosaurs themselves from the paleontologists. That would have substantially boosted the instructional value of these discs.
3- Lastly, some of the scenarios are a bit contrived, and as often happens with dinosaurs, the animals sometimes behave too much like mammals. Reptiles have much smaller brains. Dinosaurs were (for the most part) just a step above ants in their intelligence (look at the brain/body ratio of sauropods). Less anthropomorphizing would have been nice.

But, that's a problem with 90% of all nature shows, so I can't complain too much. Overall, it's a fun series that balances entertainment with some facts quite well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walking with Dinosaurs March 11 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This video program is an incredible work of digital creativity with mind bogling detail about the creatures and periods, narrated by Kenneth Branagh. The only problem is that there is no scholarly authority given for the incredible amount of detail. How do they know the gestation period of a dinosaur? Or the habits of the various creatures mentioned? It's like watching the BBC's PLANET EARTH, or BLUE PLANET, where the authority for the copious detail is based on direct observation and study. But how could this be for a narration in the prehistoric world?

5.0 out of 5 stars My dino son loves it. March 23 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fairly high production value here - good quality CGI and storytelling. Some scary and gory bits may put this into the 6+ age range, or maybe even 8+.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take a little trip back May 1 2008
Format:DVD
This is a very cool "you are there" animal program...but it's about dinosaurs. Experience the evolution of dinosaurs from their origins to their demise in this great action/adventure series. The whole Walking With series is just wonderful! This show is good for anyone interested in animals, biology, geology, and evolution. Don't worry though, all the science is presented in a "you are there witnessing the action" fashion, so you are learning without even realizing it!
