Comments: Great visuals as this movie starts. The opening does make it obvious the town of Brightwood is in for some excitement.
Jake and his friends go out at night and exploring in the forest. Abbie joins in. They bring something back with them. Then something most unexpected happens.
Magnus is so cute. The animation is marvelous, very realistic. This is no ordinary dinosaur. The things that start happening go from strange to weird to out of this world. Magnus the dinosaur is shown growing and growing.
The military is shown as a sloppy unit. No discipline to them only some attitude from the commander.
Jake and Abbie do start getting closer. Mike the evil brother of Jake finds a reason not to be so evil.
The military drones add some menace for Magnus. He is no ordinary dinosaur as you can see in his reaction to the drones.
This movie is one beautiful adventure and a growing experience for Jake. The poor dinosaur has friends though to help him.
Jake and Abbie are the two characters that shine in this movie. The ending is a delight. You are left with some mysteries unsolved but that is fine that is just the way life works.
