Editorial Reviews

Extreme Survivors: 120 million years of evolution made dinosaur bodies better adapted to their environment than any mammal today. The latest science reveals the anatomical secrets that made them such incredible survivors.

Perfect Predators: The Cretaceous Period spawned walking death machines with a savage combination of speed, eyesight, brainpower, and razor-sharp implements. The latest science reveals the anatomical secrets of these bloodthirsty carnivores.

The Defenders: Predators don't dominate the Cretaceous, plant eaters do. And their bodies are built to take a beating. The latest science reveals the anatomical secrets that made the world's largest vegetarians such successful survivors in a world of claws and teeth.

Generations: More than a million generations adapted dinosaurs to a changing planet. But each successful generation boils down to a single encounter between two like-minded reptiles. The latest science reveals the anatomical secrets to life and love among dinosaurs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Dino DVD! August 26, 2010
By TOM8PIE
Format:DVD
I have been interested in dinosaurs for many years and go fossil hunting as one of my hobbies. I have all of the decent (and not so decent) dinosaur DVDs that are out there. This one, I tell you assuredly, is one of the best. The format is a lot like the Jurassic Fight Club set... and it even has some of the same paleontologists giving comments and insights as did Jurassic Fight Club; this is fortunate, as I feel that they are extremely interesting and radiate their enthusiasm, helping one to be all the more appreciative of these amazing creatures. A good number of the dino animation is rehashed within the four episodes (just like Jurassic Fight Club reused dino footage); but enough new material, of new dino types, is thrown in such that it still makes for great viewing pleasure. The previous reviewer did not like the same material being used and would rather have fewer episodes with less repetition. I like it the way it is... because new information and new insights are provided throughout, and the computer simulations are so good that I enjoy watching them again. Realistically speaking, one cannot expect endless episodes with all new simulations in each... as the Discovery Channel and any other outfit has budget restraints and limitations just like with any production company.
This is a very well thought out production and I was pleased about it in many respects. I'm a vegetarian, and it was excellent how this set elaborated on how the vegetarian dinosaurs coped with the onslaught from the carnivores. The carnivorous dinosaurs often risked their lives while engaging with the plant eaters; often they would be injured and even killed by them. T-rex wasn't always the king... despite how cool and classy the tyrannosaurs were!

3.0 out of 5 stars Amazing visuals January 29, 2011
Format:DVD
but lacked a bit in content. I will be the first to admit I never grew out of my dinosaur phase so I may be a little biased. The information was excellent and the visuals were fantastic. The only thing I can't stand in dino-documenteries is recycled footage. Once you watch the first episode you have seen pretty much all the footage Clash of the Dinosaurs has to offer. Much of the information is also recycled. I still loved this documentary however I would not recommend watching all the episodes in the same day.

5.0 out of 5 stars a Shawnish Review October 2, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love Dinosaurs and have purchased many DVD on the subject. And this one possesses some of the best DinoAnimations I've EVER seen! I thought it was loaded with very good information and great narration. But one downside is that it reuses the same animations so repetitively that you eventually get tired of seeing the same things over and over. Regardless, I thought this was a great addition to my DinoCollection!

3.0 out of 5 stars A little repetitive but educational March 29, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Watched the program with my grandson on the Kindle in place of a bedtime story. No commercials but plenty of post commercial style reviews and repeats of content from earlier in the program. All in all, about 30 minutes of interesting content "packed" into about 45 minutes...Glad it was on Amazon Prime. Thanks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD: Some episodes better than others May 19, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I recognize that some of the criticisms of this product are credible, but this work also has substantial strengths as well as occasional shortcomings. My favorite episode is "the Defenders" which has a lot to say about armored dinosaurs and ceratopsians like triceratops. It also has the distinguished paleontologist Bob Bakker presenting his theories about the hadrasaur, parasaurolaphus using infrasound in herds as a unified defense against a predator. While this theory is too good not to include, I do not believe it has a large following yet. Another scene involving combat between a Tyrannosaurus and a Triceratops is particularly realistic and includes fight sequences based on important fossil evidence outlined in Gregory Paul's THE PRINCETON FIELD GUIDE TO DINOSAURS. Specifically, this fight scene includes the T-rex tactic of biting and breaking the Triceratops's horns to disarm it and struggling to prevent the other animal from spearing it in the process. It is also worth noting that the discovery of this tactic is an important data point indicating that Tyrannosaurs were not simply scavengers as has sometimes been postulated (if the interpretation of the fossils is correct). No need to break the horns on a dead carcass if that is your meal for the day. Future fossil finds may help to clarify this issue since we have only one example of such a fight (that I know of). In the meantime, I strongly recommend this series especially at the ridiculously low price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dino animation -- all 20 minutes of it. January 29, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series has some strong points -- authoritative and entertaining "talking heads", some of the acknowledged expert paleontologists of today (including Kenneth Carpenter, Bob Bakker, Mark Norell, and others); some very impressive animated anatomical footage; analyses of hunting, defense, and breeding strategies, and (my favorite part) computer-animated dinosaurs.

The problem? This series commits a serious sin: The animated footage -- which is pretty much de rigeur for a modern dinosaur show -- is repeated, over and over and over. Not just from one episode to the next, but even within them. In the first episode alone, you can see nearly every bit of animation at LEAST four times -- probably more, but I didn't count them all. I started the second episode, hoping to see new animations -- and saw the same ten or so clips used in the first! And while the animation is pretty good, it has an unusual style -- lots of extreme closeups (with a virtual wide-angle lens), frequently low angles backlit by a low sun, and an overexposed, washed-out look that rarely gives the "nature video" feel of productions like "Walking With Dinosaurs" or "Planet Dinosaur".

Basically, this series feels like they didn't have the budget for a lot of dino animation, so they decided to pay for a little of it, and used it over and over. Given an apparent budgetary constraint, I suppose it's better to get a little good animation than a lot of bad animation.

(In what is probably another cost-saving measure, the scene purporting to show Sauroposeidon hatchlings apparently used the adult models, scaled down -- ignoring the natural differences of proportion between adults and young.)

In summary, I have to agree with another reviewer who said not to watch all four episodes in one evening.
