 “Walking With Dinosaurs,” an hour and a half animated movie tells the story of Patchi, a pachyrhinosaurus who has to deal with all the struggles that come with living in prehistoric times and being the runt of the litter.   Featuring the voices of John Leguizamo as Alex, Justin Long as Patchi, Tiya Sircar as Juniper, and Skyler Stone as Scowler (Patchi’s brother), this movie is a must see.

 

The story is told from the bird Alex’s perspective.   The movie begins when Patchi, who is still young, is trying to get some food, but, because of his size, keeps getting pushed back.    He spots some food that landed on the side of his nest, so he decides to climb out.    But an ostrich-like creature comes up from behind and snatches Patchi up.    It tries to run, but fails.   It lets go of Patchi and he goes flying, with a hole chewed through his head.   He doesn’t come back to the herd.   Instead he decides to go on an adventure.   Eventually, he finds his way back home.

 

One day when Patchi is out exploring, he meets a girl called Juniper.    When he learns that her herd has migrated south already, he becomes impatient for his to do the same.   When it is finally time, Patchi is overjoyed.   However, this seemingly perfect moment cannot last forever.   As they are traveling through the forest, tragedy strikes.

 

I enjoyed this movie’s graphics which looked very lifelike and 3D effects.    I also liked how it told you a little information about each new dinosaur species when they came into the movie.   The storyline was interesting and enjoyable.   There were several funny scenes, but also some intense scenes that might be too scary for kids under 5.   Overall this was a great movie.
