Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 8602 ratings.
I truly enjoyed this movie. The characters were well fleshed out, although a little silly at times (the boy who's girlfriend wants him to risk his life for her and goes out to do it, the scientist with a face like a pushbroom). The dinosaurs were spectacular, and I had a sensation of living decades ago and staring back centuries into the past.
I love this movie! It was the first silent movie I ever owned, so it holds a special place in my list of great movies. I've always been a fan of dinosaur movies, and found a VHS copy of this at a local Walmart.. in ne of those cheap movie dump bins. I watched it as soon as I got home. Once DVD came around, I knew I had to own it on this great format. When I found this disc at a local Borders I was so excited. Thanks for bringing these classics to us at an affordable cost!
