The gigantic voice talents of Justin Long (Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise) and John Leguizamo (Ice Age franchise) take you on a thrilling prehistoric journey the whole family will enjoy! In a time when dinosaurs rule the Earth, the smallest of the pack — a playful Pachyrhinosaurus named Patchi — embarks on the biggest adventure of his life. As he tries to find his place in a spectacular world filled with fun-loving friends and a few dangerous foes, Patchi will discover the courage he needs to become the leader of the herd...and a hero for the ages.
The 411 by Maria:
I was floored with the 3D animation. This is truly cutting edge technology that is worth seeing.
Patchi is our main character and he received his name because as a tiny little baby just out of his dino egg, a massive prehistoric bird swoops in and tries to take him away from his family. It is survival of the fittest after all and the bird probably has a family to take care and Patchi was going to be food. He is eventually saved from being regurgitated bird food but ends up with a hole in his ear that you can hear the wind whistle through.
Like most animal movies, Patchi and his brother Scowler end up orphans after his father perishes in a fight to the death. Sad yes but thankfully they don't spend anytime showing us what happens to dear old dad.
Eventually the brothers are in a new "family" migrating and learning their place in the herd.
Personally I was more amazed with the graphics then the storyline. It is a masterpiece! The storyline was a little slow for me HOWEVER, my kids and the two boys I babysit for the same age as mine 8 and 10 LOVED it. They want to see it every time they come over and isn't that what really matters in a children's movie?!
