Though the title is a brand name thanks to the long-popular BBC-made documentary series, this family-friendly film goes its own way, putting a story to its visuals of computer-generated creatures set against real backdrops.
Justin Long voices a young dinosaur who struggles to make his way through an often harsh prehistoric world, with a bird (voiced by John Leguizamo) as his principal companion. The picture still strives to be educational by identifying the species of different characters, which interrupts the narrative flow though it's well-intentioned. Karl Urban ("Star Trek") is featured in live-action sequences. *** (PG: AS) (Also on Blu-ray)
