Huge let downBy millio (4 reviews) from London , 22 May 2012As a dinosaur buff who grew up on Jurassic Park, this 'documentary' is a huge let down. The CGI is not even at the level of the first Jurassic Park movie, and that came out nearly 20 years ago! Stephen Fry's narration saves the film from full tedium, but I would still challenge anyone to make it through the laborious 85 minute running time.
Pretty fun, though hardly memorableBy viddywell (7 reviews) from The Dank , 08 Feb 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I'm a big fan of dinosaurs, and I'm pretty sure I was searching this site with hazy rose-coloured glasses when I saw this title available. But after seeing the final product that is March of the Dinosaurs, I have a few mixed opinions towards it.
Sadly, I really don't think the start was very captivating at all. What I assumed would be a pseudo-documentary about a selection of dinosaurs from a particular epoch turned out to be a slightly plot driven feature with a rather basic 'get from point A to point B' sort of narrative. Even the narration given by the usually silky smooth tones of Steven Fry seemed to come across as a little flat and a little uninterested. I was often expecting him to blurt out some sort of scientifically backed up statement about one of the numerous dinosaurs represented within the feature, but the dinosaur enthusiast in me was kinda left wanting just a snippet of educational material - and it's rare you'd actually see me admitting that.
However, once the rather mundane introduction gets out of the way, the rather simple story seems to be left, replaced by a few recurring 'characters' and some of the primal trails and tribulations they may have had to deal with in their prehistoric lives. Often, I found myself smiling to myself whenever Patch the Troodon stumbled his way onto screen. His entire little side-story was some odd Saurian teenager-dealing-with-more-adult-responsibilities plot and was actually rather comical if you looked at it in a certain way.
Fans of CGI in general may enjoy this quite a lot, but if you're after something a little more fact based than a quaint little dinosaur story, I would recommend Planet Dinosaur. But this isn't too bad really, juts not entirely what I expected.
A tedious watch.By Dizzymaunie (1 review) , 30 Jan 2012Unfortunately the quality of the CGI animation ruined March of the Dinosaurs for us, it uses a crude and dated style that is comparable to a cheap video game.
Stephen Fry is the only redeeming element of this documentary but unfortunately his voice doesn't outweigh other elements that make March of the Dinosaurs an incredibly tedious watch.

March of the DinosaursBy Jeepster (52 reviews) from Sheffield , 17 Jan 2012This is one of the best CGI titles I have seen so far. No boring bits, the narration is good, even the music is kept to a minimum. Enjoyable and engrossing. Well recommended.
Excellent family watchingBy AlanLeeds (18 reviews) , 15 Jan 2012Really good. We enjoyed this documentary drama from start to finish. One of those films you like to watch again. Excellent for all the family.
