Editorial Reviews

This Blu-ray disc will play on standard Blu-ray players & 3D Blu-ray players. To watch this movie in Blu-ray 3D, you will need a 3D-capable television and a 3D-capable Blu-ray player.

This fascinating film focuses on the history, evolution and extinction of the dinosaurs. In larger-than-life fashion, you will explore a subject matter whose mystique and appeal are unquestioned. Dinosaurs are amongst the most fascinating animals to have ever walked the Earth. We are captivated by their enormous size and intrigued by the fact that they disappeared millions of years ago DINOSAURS: GIANTS OF PATAGONIA will take you on an unprecedented and unique journey into the world of the largest known dinosaurs and, in the process, explore some of the great paleontological discoveries of modern time. Done in close collaboration with the foremost scientists of the domain, the movie will show never seen before computer generated footage of the Giganotosaurus and the Argentinosaurus to name a few. At the moment of initiating this extraordinary project, one question comes to mind: "Is your screen big enough?"

I had seen few Science Fiction Movies (including 3D) at Imax theatres; and wandered & enjoyed the
Dinausaurs in science museums.
The quality of the dinosaurs in this 3D movie is quite impressive and their movements are so close to
being realistic as they are so believable. The 3D is good and the panoramic views shown are good as you
can get. The soundtrack was excellently in harmony to the movie itself and the narration is inviting and
captivating to listen to.
Overall, this is a high quality 3D movie especially the "Features" part added to this DVD (even it is in
2D); and you will never be tired in watching it multiple times. Forget about the "1 Star" critics as they
will never be capable of understanding the hard & great works undertaken by the filmmakers of this
movie; just order this 3D movie through Amazon.com and enjoy it whilst you can.

Format:Blu-ray
I have had a lifelong fascination with dinosaurs. Let me tell you, there are so many compelling and interesting programs or movies pre-existing within the marketplace--it's almost impossible to bring something new to the table. With the latest IMAX 3D creation "Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia," it seems an almost can't miss proposition. But you have to ask two questions: Is the narrative of interest or unique? Is the 3D a particular selling point?

Narrative: Unfortunately, there is not much new ground broken in this rather lackluster presentation. An expressionless narration by Donald Sutherland introduces us to a scientist and several creatures that seemed to inhabit the same area of South America. It is, in truth, a very dry presentation and the scientist lacks any real impact. The creature creation is nice (even if the beasts are quite familiar)--I'd say a step up from previous features such as "Dinosaurs Alive!" But again, if you watch these types of programs on TV--nothing here is particularly out of the ordinary. Even at 40 minutes, I was ready for this to hit its conclusion.

Features: A eclectic documentary is included that runs a tad longer than the actual feature. It combines some making-of information with some 3D technology information with plenty of footage not used in the film with some bizarre Monty Python type animation. It really just plays as an extension of the main film, so whether you find this an interesting addition or not depends on how much you enjoyed the film. I wouldn't choose to watch it again.

3D: The film graphics and vistas look fine. This can be a very pretty film even if it's dramatically inert. The precision of the 3D is most effective on these landscape shots, and the setting is absolutely lovely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 3D DVD May 27, 2012
By John
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
We bought a 3D television just before the holidays, and we wanted to buy the grandkids a 3D DVD apiece for Christmas. Our grandson loves dinosaurs, so this seemed like the perfect DVD for him. It is slow in parts, and his interest wanes, but for the most part, he loves it. I would recommend this to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dinosaurs recreated yet again May 10, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ever since Steven Speilberg created Jurassic Park, there has been an ongoing movement to create more realistic dinosaurs on film/dvd. This is the latest of the wave of dinosaur documentaries. I must admit to liking Donald Sutherland's narration. He probably did not write it, but he delivers the dialog with appropiate poignancy.I am not sure if this is the best rendition of the dinosaurs yet, but it was worth the price. My only complaint is it was too short.(under an hour).

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic real looking dinosaurs in 3D May 31, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Comment: The parts of the "story that show Dinosaurs in action are so "lifelike" that they so overwhelm the rest of the "normal" show. You can't wait for the "action" to get back to the Dinosaurs so much that the documentary of real people just gets "annoying". I noticed that if you sat a little closer than normal to the screen, the 3D became very, very good. When I sat at my normal distance from the screen the 3D picture was ever so slightly out of focus. Other than that little item the 3D was stellar. I use Samsung equipment. I can't wait to see a full length documentary on Dinosaurs without the (real) human aspect added to the documentary. Overall this 3D documentary had no artifacts I found annoying. The sound was great... the picture stellar. If you have had any thoughts of purchasing 3D equipment for playback on your home, now might be the time. The selection and quality of 3D titles is increasing. Come join us in seeing these 3D titles without the hassle of standing in line etc. The reproduction in the home is as good or better than the theater experience. (The disc can cost as little as one admission in some cases.)

5.0 out of 5 stars 3D Review May 12, 2011
By Josh B.
Format:Blu-ray
I really enjoyed this documentary. I thought the special effects were on par or better than any dinosaur program that I've seen on the Discovery channel. Donald Sutherland does a great job of narrating. I don't know what all the other negative reviews are really for. I noticed very, very little to no ghosting whatsoever on my Sony 3D LED tv. The 3D was done very well with lots and lots of depth. Quite a few jaw dropping scenes. I would definitely recommend picking this 3D title up, it isn't very long but it isn't very expensive either.
