An action-packed movie that’s great for the whole family is Dinosaur. The fun begins 65 million years ago when a dinosaur egg is plucked from its mothers nest and dropped on an island inhabited by monkeys. (This is a new concept – monkeys living among dinosaurs.) A little plant-eating dinosaur named Aladar hatches from the egg and is nurtured by the female monkeys. He lives with his adopted family until a meteor shower hits the planet and destroys their island home. Aladar takes his family to the mainland and they meet up with a rag tag herd of dinosaurs that is searching for a lush fertile valley used as a nesting grounds. The leader of the herd is a ruthless dinosaur named Kron who could care less about the old, the young and the weak; he believes in survival of the fittest. Two vicious Tyrannosaurus Rex who will stop at nothing to make a kill is hunting the herd. When Aladar and 3 other dinosaurs find themselves separated from the herd, Alada r and his friends take refuge in a cave to hide from the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Wait a second, hide in a cave? Either the dinosaurs shrunk or the “cave” would have to be big enough to hide 4 busses, 2 jumbo jets or Roseanne Barr. Aladar eventually escapes and finds the nesting grounds, but where is the herd? Are they lost or dead? This is a very entertaining movie and I couldn’t tell if it was made for kids or adults. In my opinion, dinosaurs attacking and eating other dinosaurs was a little too violent for small children. I couldn’t tell if it was dinosaurs making disgusting noises or the big guy behind me eating a huge bag of popcorn. This is a fun movie for the kids if they are not too young and I give it a B rating.

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
