The Good Dinosaur | Ratings & Reviews

"After ditching its original director, its voice cast and basically everything else a few years ago, Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur has gone through quite a bit of damage throughout its development. You’d hope the studio would have been able to find the diamond in the rough. Unfortunately, the end result feels more like a diamond-shaped lump made out of rough."

"Cross-species bonding may have its limits, but it's hard not to find beauty in a boy-meets-beast saga that, by the end, has made it hard to tell which is which."


"This is a rich and rewarding family film."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Sun-dappled streams, swaying trees and an almost palpable sense of weather shock with their photorealism-if this is what animation has become, the computers have won."

Time OutTime Out

"Charmingly different, but its oddness sneaks up on you only after the filmmakers lay out some storybook bona fides."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"However much it may delight on a scene-by-scene basis... never comes together as a coherent whole, a crucial flaw for a film by Pixar, which has always put story first."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Antic and unexpected as well as homiletic, rife with subversive elements, wacky critters and some of the most beautiful landscapes ever seen in a computer animated film."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"A visually breathtaking work of computer-generated animation that is ultimately unable to compensate for a disappointingly derivative script."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Shows the marks of a rushed production - though not the landscape and environment design, which is gorgeous - its central pair have enough heart to make the film's shortcomings fade away."
