Transporting viewers to locations across the globe and back in time through tens of millions of years, ‘Planet Dinosaur 3D' brings to life the most awesome and amazing creatures that ever lived, rendered in visually stunning 3D technology. Most were discovered in the last 10 years and entailed a rewriting of the prehistory books.
Palaeontologists now know that dinosaurs spread to every part of the globe, and evolved in ways so monstrous, horrific and bizarre they make T Rex look very tame indeed. Unlike any dinosaur show before it and shot in stunning 3D CGI this is a completely immersive visual experience studded with curious facts and jaw-dropping action as well as charismatic monsters brought to life on screen. Presenting a brand-new global perspective on the prehistoric era, the series recreates the creatures, their habitats and how they lived, from analysing their bones to watching them fight to the death. Narrated by John Hurt.

Andrew's Blu-ray Review: We've been fascinated with Dinosaurs for years, especially from ‘Jurassic Park’ to the ‘BBC Walking with Dinosaurs’ TV series.Read more ›
Overall, it provides an excellent amount of information along with some excellent visuals. The technical information is probably aimed at a slightly older audience than WWD, but the visuals should be enough to entertain younger viewers. So I feel confident with a 5 star rating, even though the lack of true HD probably leads me to a 4.5/5. But that's a small enough issue for me to say that if you like dinosaurs (or know some kids who do), this is an excellent video collection to pick up.
