This movie has it all! You get spaceships, gadgetry, and dinosaurs! This film features vivid, bright animation with engaging, extraterrestrial characters and a couple of peppy songs.
Pororo the penguin and other friends, Patty Penguin, Eddie, Loopy, Krong, and Alo, set out to rescue the captives of Dinosaur Island. They receive help in the form of King Dinosaur, an impressive dinosaur with a big heart.
There’s a sardonic villain named Mr. Why, and he wants to capture Dinosaur Island and take Pororo’s friends all captive. The reason? He’s a dinosaur hunter. Alo, a blue newcomer, joins the gang and embarks on their adventure to fight against Mr. Why. There are neat gadgets on the ship and the space adventures are sure to keep big and little kids’ imaginations fed throughout the entire movie.
The viewer is definitely swept up into another world as a rabbit fixes the space ship, and Mr. Why has his small robots pursue Pororo, Alo, and the rest of the gang. They also hide in the empty robots. Ships fly through space and the intricacies of the interior of the ship are something that’s sure to capture the imagination.
The good guys get their licks in on the bad guys. In one intriguing scene, a dinosaur hits the bad robots with big fruit, which is snapped from his tail! It’s a bit tension-filled in a few scenes as the friends scurry away to hide so that they might seize the right moment to rescue their companions. The flying pterodactyls are impressive to watch and will captivate the viewer, especially the little ones. The technology is contemporary, which balances the scenes of the ancient dinosaurs nicely. The characters are memorable and the villain unforgettable. The balance between the island and space is nicely handled.
In many ways, the film is about bravery, and these loyal friends show it time and time again, as do the good dinosaurs on the island who are loyal to them. This is a movie with very little content to be concerned about and easily merits the Dove-approved seal for All Ages.
The Dove Take:
This is a wonderful family film, focusing on the bravery and loyalty of friends who stand up to evil characters with a fun-filled flurry of action.
