Plot Summary

This is the story of Aladar (D.B. Sweeney), an iguanodon dinosaur raised by a family of lemurs.

Teaming up with a herd of other herbivores, the trek is on to find the "Nesting Ground" where water and vegetation is bountiful... but with carnivores behind them and nothing but desert around for miles, it doesn't look promising!

    Throughout the history of film, nothing turns campier faster than dinosaur movies. This one will have a much longer shelf life than most.

    For sheer bravura film making, for creating a cartoon world with real air, flesh, blood and the exhilarating cycle of fear and escape, Dinosaur is tops. show more

    An undeniable and, indeed, unprecedented technical feat that's a feast for the eye, Dinosaur is less easy on the ear.
