Editorial Reviews

Just as dinosaurs began their domination of Earth, pterosaurs ruled the prehistoric skies. Some with wingspans as long as a modern jet plane, these flying reptiles were as spectacular in appearance as they were amazing in flight.

Join world-renowned naturalist and documentary filmmaker David Attenborough as he recounts the fascinating story
of how we humans first discovered that these creatures were real and how they were even able to get off the ground
and indeed soar...until their sudden disappearance from Earth.

Through cutting edge 3D technology and stunning CGI, Flying Monsters 3D brings to life the amazing story of the real
flying monsters.

I bought the DVD version and was very happy. Then I saw and bought this 3D version and it is beautiful. But 30min. were cut out or deleted. I was really mad. What happened to the other 30 min.? I suspect they left out those parts where it wasn't 3D. That's NO EXCUSE! I could live with some parts not in 3D. I feel cheated! False advertising! At the very least they could have indicated this on the label before people buy it. SO WARNING-- You will not get the full 70 min. ONLY 40 min. runtime.

This feature is currently being shown in IMAX theaters and is presented in this package in Blu-Ray 2D & 3D as well as DVD format. Under such circumstances, there is always a danger that spectacular visuals will allow the filmmaker to shortchange the audience on content. Two words prevent that from occurring in this instance--David Attenborough. Attenborough is a legendary master filmmaker as well as an unparalleled interpreter of the natural world. If he has made a bad film in the last forty years I must have missed it, and I do not miss anything that he has been involved with if I can help it. In this instance, Flying Monsters is a brilliant and technically masterful examination of the lives and evolution of the prehistoric flying reptiles known as pterosaurs. Attenborough suggests that pterosaurs evolved from gliding lizards and that they were initially adapting to feed on the vast clouds of insects found in prehistoric skies. It was of course inevitable that some life forms would find a way to exploit this abundant food source. He further notes that the earliest pterosaurs were poor fliers and illustrates this point with struggling and awkward Dimorphodons. Later, as pterosaurs evolved further, they became significantly more aerodynamic and their diet also diversified. In one particularly funny scene, Attenborough pilots a modern glider next to a giant Quetzalcoatlus. In concluding this stunning and wonderful film, Attenborough expresses doubt that the asteroid strike on earth 65 million years ago was the primary reason for pterosaur extinction. Rather, he suggests that a more important reason for their passing from the planet was that they were outcompeted by birds.

This is a good and well made british show that was made for imax type screens. It was shown on imax screens in the u.s. I have the europeon version that is 20 minutes longer and has alot more information on it. That version in at 50Hz and it did work on my panasonic vt television as well as my panasonic 3d blu ray player. it has a extra feature , the making of , on it too. Not all players or tv's can handle 50 hz blu rays though. If you want to play it safe then get the u.s. one. As to why they felt the need to cut out 20 minutes on the u.s. version ,when they didn't have to is beyond me. My version is filled with great cgi effects , some of which are very amazing. It tells of the evolution and change in the terrasaurs over 150 million years , from small reptiles to warm blooded tailess creatures filling many niches in nature. So it's worth owning for the info alone and the 3d scenes look great too. Plus it's done by david attenbourgh who is just a awesome narrator and scientist who has many credits under his belt.

I bought this as a gift for my husband thinking that it was a full-length movie (90 to 120 minutes). It turned out to only be 30 minutes. We were very disappointed.

I was hoping for a bit more science from this, more about Pterosaur anatomy, thoughts on the various habitats different species were thought to have inhabited and such but instead got a video that is mainly an entertainment vehicle. It's OK but nothing I didn't already know from my reading elsewhere. I imagine that people with less background in Pterosaurs will enjoy it and give it 5 stars.

40 mins is too short for a Blu-ray documentary. I see too little value to replay this documentary again. There are many other better documentaries by David Attenborough than this one.

I tried to watch it in IMAX and got a headache! I'm so glad it came out on DVD, so I could enjoy it at home. And, David Attenborough is always delightful!

Fun to watch, not terribly deep but I did gain some general knowledge of flying reptiles (are they really considered dinosaurs?). It interested me enough to go and read a book.
