Storyline

Dinosaurs were the ultimate prehistoric survival machines, ruling the earth for 120 Million years. Until now we've seen them as skeletons and robotic models. Dino Body takes a new look at dinosaurs -- from the inside out. Combining cinematic photo-real 3D graphics and leading-edge anatomy and paleontology, we peel back their skin, their muscles, even their brains to reveal the unique inner workings of the greatest beasts that ever lived. Hidden inside dino bodies are the anatomical secrets to surviving prehistoric Planet Earth for millions of years.

interesting and of overwhelming visual strength
17 April 2015 | by Phonomatic-171-524120See all my reviews

It's been a while after release but the renderings for this production in my opinion are still some of the most impressive dinosaur-renderings ever made. The quality of the reconstructions, animations, lighting, camera - the scenery as a hole - culminate in pictures of unprecedented visual power. Only pity is that they are repeated over and over throughout the different parts of the series. But these repetitions are broken by cuts into interviews with established and well known paleontologists and other renderings usefully visualizing the explained biological processes. The interviews are over all interesting, sometimes even funny and sometimes well speculative. Underlying almost the hole time is an extensive musically arrangement that adds a sense of drama and may sometimes be a bit too much, but - spoken for myself - never stressed me out. I enjoyed the series for it's interesting information as well as for it's impressive 3D-Visuals ... and even six years after release I'm still very much impressed by it.
