Dove Review

“Project Dinosaur” is a winner! It is a bit mystery, a bit comedy, and is perfect for anyone who even remotely likes dinosaurs. In one of the comedic scenes, a kid tells another kid he asks too many questions. “You really think so?” responds the kid.

Students compete against one another in the science project, and another student who really wants to beat Simon challenges him. Soon the students go head to head in a heated debate about evolution versus creationism. Teachers often teach evolution as a “fact” in text books, so one kid decides to write a paper on the topic.

This film will minister to kids as well as adults and will encourage viewers to ask that all-important question: “What do I believe?” We are happy to award this drama our Faith Friendly Seal for all ages. “Project Dinosaur” is imaginative and fun.
