This product contains three dinosaur documentaries that are all very good but have nothing in common and only one of the documentaries really talks about dinosaurs being "perfect predators".

This review is from: Dinosaurs: Perfect Predators (DVD)
I've got most all of the better Dinosaur and fossil DVDs, including Walking with Dinosaurs and Jurassic Fight Club. This one is right up there with the very best; they did a marvelous job with regard to making this one! The simulated dinosaurs are simply stunning; they are, often throughout the first of the three separate episodes of this DVD, breathtaking! A lot of pertinent and interesting information is provided, with graphic images supporting the information given. The first long episode is worth the price of the DVD, in and of itself.

The first (and main) episode, which has the same title as the DVD itself, involves predators such as T-Rex and Deinonycus. A lot of very interesting information is given on both of these dinosaurs; this episode is superb and is probably the best dinosaur-oriented film that I have ever seen thus far. T-rex and Deinonycus were both super-predators with large brains and with sensory systems that often surpassed our own. Various paleontologists give remarks throughout this episode, and their insights are interesting and fluid. I like how Pete Larson, of the Black Hills Institute, while stating about how T-rex had expandable jaws (i.e., similar to that of snakes)... then mentions something like: "There is not a lawyer around that would be too fat for a T-rex to swallow (whole)." Pete, you got that right, alright!

The second episode, entitled "Monsters Resurrected: Great American Predator", is about Acrocanthosaurus. Acrocanthosaurus is an awesome carnivore that left tracks, while going after a sauropod, in Texas; these tracks are analysed and explained as part of this segment. The forearms of this predator were reconstructed in a real-life simulation experiment; what they do to the simulated prey material certainly leaves an impression!

The third episode, entitled "Beyond T-Rex", is about Carcharodontosaurus and Giganotosaurus, two very cool carnivorous dinosaurs that surpassed T-Rex in size; very interesting information was provided here. These two dinosaurs are closely related, due to the occurrence of land bridges that connected Africa and South America, after they split, millions of years ago.

So, to sum it all up, if you don't like dinosaurs, be sure not to get this excellent DVD!

I bought this as a Christmas present because my grandson's, aged 2 and 4, love dinosaurs. The animations are wonderful but the boys are too young yet to really appreciate the science that is embedded within the DVD. But I believe that they will continue to enjoy this DVD for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great dvd for dino lovers, August 12, 2011

This review is from: Dinosaurs: Perfect Predators (DVD)
This dvd has 3 shows in one. The first show has great UPDATED info on a couple dinos. Its great because the show is relatively new so the info is up to date.

Shows 3 and 4 are about carnivores that may not be known as much as tyrannosaurus rex, which is really cool and gives you insight on new dinosaurs that you may or may not know

A Kid's Review
This review is from: Dinosaurs: Perfect Predators (DVD)
This product contains three dinosaur documentaries that are all very good but have nothing in common and only one of the documentaries really talks about dinosaurs being "perfect predators". The first of the documentaries is very accurate and clear about its information the the deadliest predators of the Cretaceous Period, the second one is one of the episode from "Monsters Resurrected", and the third one is talking about what predatory dinosaurs would win in a fight against T-Rex. Over all I would say that it is worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Predators, February 6, 2014

This review is from: Dinosaurs: Perfect Predators (DVD)
Very well done; graphics are great. Good information on dinosaurs. The only thing that keeps these documentaries from getting a five-star rating is their habit of recounting information. This might be a good thing when your broadcast is continually interrupted for long strings of commercials, but in a commercial-less DVD it is merely an irritating, boring, interruption.
