Rating: 6/10 -- The Valley of the Gwangi is a curious beast of a film. Full Review
Rating: 6/10 -- Best thought of as one of the pictures to get out of the way later rather than sooner when you decide to see everything Ray Harryhausen did. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
Rating: B- -- An implausible B film fantasy sci-fi venture. But it should delight the fans of special effects maven Ray Harryhausen more than others. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
It says something about the production and about Harryhausen's artistry when we realize that Gwangi, the snarling dinosaur created from a tabletop model, is the most realistically alive character on the screen. Full Review
How can a dinosaur fan of any age not love 'Gwangi,' in which the title Allosaurus makes his public debut with the unscheduled addition of a screaming dwarf between his jaws?
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
Rating: 3/5 -- Cowboys and dinosaurs! Too bad we root for the dinos, but the cowboys win.
