This review is from: Predator Dinosaurs (DVD)
If you are into dinosaurs, this DVD is well worth getting. The narrator, Bill Oddie, does an excellent job of presenting the most recent dinosaur data within this fine film. There is plenty of CGI footage of dinosaurs that look realistic enough. There is also a lot of experimentation-oriented footage, such as via a fabricated life-size T-rex skull (to test what it could actually crush by regulating the bite force per square centimeter comparable to that of what crocodiles/alligators would have at around the same size); also, the velociraptor's killing sickle toe/claw is analyzed (via mechanical models simulating bone and muscle) to determine what it may have been realistically capable of. Interesting stuff, indeed! The combination of realistic-enough dinosaur computer animations and structured laboratory tests were interlaced with taste; it made for an overall interesting DVD; I was very glad that I had purchased it! Educational and entertaining! Strongly reinforces the fact that birds are the descendants of dinosaurs.
