We thought this was like that BBC walking with dinos, where the host travels in time and pretends he is in each period. This is NOT that. My 6 year old son was very disapointed. Also, he made us turn it off when things started to eat things - he likes to learn but can't handle to see an animal eaten.

Walking with dinsosaurs was a masterpiece and shouldn't be missed by anyone. This series however lacks on two key points. The first is that the animation and animatronics looks much more fake than they ever did previously. Even some of the CGI is very jerky, whales shifting unrealistically mid-jump, other creatures doing the same. Then when we get to certain 'rubber' puppets, they shake and vibrate in a way that just screams PUPPET!
If this were the UK region 2 version, there my criticism would end and the show would get a solid 4 stars.
However this is the US version and the shameful editing is to be deplored. A couple of austrolipithicus (gasp) have sex. Like creatures have been doing for hundreds of millions of years. But in the US edition this scene is blurred out.
Are Americans so pitifully prudish that they can stomach to see thousands of unnnatural acts of people shooting and killing each other in myriads of ways, but can't stomach 2 seconds of the most natural act in the world, sex, which if it wasn't blurred out, people would see was masked my grass anyway?
Shame on the censors, shame on the BBC for allowing it, and shame on the narrow-minded who won't allow others to make up their own minds about the scene.
For that, the US edition gets 3 stars.

This documentary movie is about what happened in the last 200,00 years ago when the saber toothed tiger + other prehistoric beasts were still existing right after the great mass dinosaur mass extinction. It lets peek on what happened after the great meteor that wiped out everything and what kinds of mammals and other creatures started to come out of the wood works globally. I have other documentary movies about post extinction dinosaur stuff and they're quite better...this is OK but I had better

This series made many assumptions about the life of prehistoric animals based on current animal behavior. Given its presentation format, which is more like a documentary/nature show, I was a little disappointed. The animation was not the best but that may be the age of the show. Overall, it was okay as each show told a story.

Clumsily developed film using animatronics. Somewhat informative, but not as well done as similar features shown on Discovery and National Geographic's television.

Enjoyed storyline, as well as information provided about the topics involved.I just wish the graphics were a little better quality.

The animation is good. Lots of speculation regarding lifestyle, etc. Some outdated information regarding lineage.

Good movie for all audiences may be a little intense for children under the age of four but otherwise a good film

Lots of amazing cgi gives the viewer an experience much the same as a modern day nature show.

My beef is that the producers never explain how or why they believe these long dead creatures looked or behaved in the way they show us. It's all presented as fact and not the speculation that it must certainly be.
