THE PLOT:

A cruise ship which was damaged and knocked way off course by a ion storm is destroyed, the survivors take refuge on an uncharted and primitive planet.

Now it becomes a quest for survival on this savage and primitive planet of dinosaurs. Now the question becomes, can any of them survive?

ZEDD'S OPINION:

This is not a perfect movie by any means, the acting could have been better, the stop motion could have been better. But it has a lot going for it. It's original, they didn't steal stockfootage from another movie. It's unique and clever, the characters for the most part are likable. It's clever. I give it, 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd on the plus and negative points in this movie. But something really bugged me about this movie, I always thought it was THE PLANET OF THE DINOSAURS, not PLANET OF DINOSAURS. Did some cheap producer go "Titlers charge by the letter, lost the word THE and we'll save a fortune!" I mean THE PLANET OF THE DINOSAURS would have been a great title, PLANET OF DINOSAURS is just a lame title. 5 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ EFFECTS (Considering it wasn't Ray Harryhausen, it wasn't bad.)
+ STORY (Unique.)
+ CHARACTERS (For the most part works.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER (The acting and the effects could have been better.)

...AND FINALLY...

- TITLE (What's up with cutting the word THE out of the title?)
