Animated Action: Two dinosaur brothers vie for the affections of a female dinosaur and for control of their herd.
In the modern day, a paleontologist named Zack (KARL URBAN) travels into the Alaskan wilderness with his cynical teenage nephew, Ricky (CHARLIE ROWE), and adventurous niece, Jade (ANGOURIE RICE), to look for dinosaur fossils. While Zack and Jade traipse off, Ricky stays behind to text and relax. But a magical bird named Alex (voice of JOHN LEGUIZAMO) flies in and reminds him how cool he used to find dinosaur bones and history when he was younger.

The film then flashes back to an age when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. We meet Patchi (voice of JUSTIN LONG), the smallest of a litter of Pachyrhinosauruses. He lacks confidence and coordination and is often teased and pushed around by his older, stronger, and braver brother, Scowler (voice of SKYLER STONE). Patchi also falls in love with another dinosaur, Juniper (voice of TIYA SIRCAR), from a neighboring herd.

Unfortunately, during migration, Patchi's father leads them into a raging forest fire that drives them right into the waiting claws and jaws of a group of predatory Gorgosauruses. With their parents killed, Scowler eventually takes control of the herd, claims Juniper as his mate, and relegates Patchi to the back of the pack. His egotistical leadership, though, brings the herd more peril than promise and soon the two brothers are vying for control of the dinos' destiny.

Yes. This is being heavily promoted on the various kids' cable channels.
For creature action and peril, and mild rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
