    The Good Dinosaur is up there with Toy Story in terms of its technical achievement and for providing an equally heart-touching, emotional tale.

  • Inkoo Kang

    First-time helmer Peter Sohn and screenwriter Meg LeFauve (“Inside Out”) have created a fantastic and frequently exhilarating feature that showcases Pixar’s greatest strengths: technical brilliance, emotional texture, crossover appeal, and an impish sense of humor that takes the utmost advantage of the animated form.

    There’s still that dissonance — Pixar is creating its own world, though the characters, and replicating our own, in the gorgeous vistas — but even when the combination doesn’t truly sing, it remains entrancing, and even surprising.

  • Matt Maytum

    Simple but effective, The Good Dinosaur doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it’s still damn fine family entertainment. Slow to get going, it comes into its own when its heroes buddy up.

  • Kenneth Turan

    The Good Dinosaur is antic and unexpected as well as homiletic, rife with subversive elements, wacky critters and some of the most beautiful landscapes ever seen in a computer animated film.

  • Manohla Dargis

    The Good Dinosaur is charmingly different, but its oddness sneaks up on you only after the filmmakers lay out some storybook bona fides.

    It makes you wince at the fragility of life while simultaneously welling up at the wonder of it – and that unexpected mixing of the sentimental and the existential left me feeling what can only be described as aww-struck.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    It might be a given that Pixar’s movies are visually spectacular, but The Good Dinosaur may be the studio’s most purely cinematic, the richness of the design and the emotional power of the widescreen compositions stirring deep, almost primal feelings about childhood, the loss of innocence and the untamed ferocity of the natural world.

    The Good Dinosaur may not be as revolutionary as 1914’s “Gertie the Dinosaur,” but as Jurassic World already demonstrated this year, we never tire of these prehistoric critters.

    What is special about The Good Dinosaur isn't the characters...but the backgrounds.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The script is more functional than funny, and the animation, while adept, is not altogether memorable.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Sarah Bryan Miller

    Perhaps the larger issue is that we just expect better from the company that gave us so much more originality and smarts in movies such as “WALL-E,” “Toy Story” and “Inside Out.” Enjoy it for what it is.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    The Good Dinosaur has an original concept, disarming emotional heft and features the most impressive visuals in animated cinema to date.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Perhaps more than ever before, the animators do the heavy lifting: Every detail, from the gentle bob of a beast's breathing to the fluid shifts of Spot's facial expressions, has been lovingly rendered.

    Most of the time I was distracted by the superb photorealism of The Good Dinosaur's American Southwest backdrops, wondering how much money Disney would save by just filming the real thing.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    A sense of family, the one you have and the one you make, strongly pervades every inch of the world that The Good Dinosaur inhabits.

  • Bilge Ebiri

    The resulting film is amiable, pretty, and charming in all the right ways — even if it ultimately settles for a fairly typical tale of a late bloomer finding his way.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    The silliness is more than made up for with moments of stillness and quiet connection between characters learning to need each other in lovely ways. And most of all, there’s the glorious landscape.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The buddies’ adventures are dramatized delightfully, but a case could be made for the movie’s real subject being scenery, and, particularly, water.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Visually beautiful — stunning, in places — but somewhat stale in story, director Peter Sohn’s feature debut will certainly charm young audiences, and there is some nicely bracing grown-up material: love and death, the whole deal.

  • Alan Scherstuhl

    It's smart in surprising ways, daring in a few minor ones, moving in the right ones.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Cross-species bonding may have its limits, but it’s hard not to find beauty in a boy-meets-beast saga that, by the end, has made it hard to tell which is which.

    Variety Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    The Good Dinosaur is fine. I found myself moved by it on a very direct level. Technically speaking, it's a gorgeous film in many ways, but I'm still not a fan of the super-cartoony style of the characters over the photo-realistic world, which is genuinely jaw-dropping.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    While the story attempts the moves that a Pixar film typically makes—nonverbal storytelling, death, a bittersweet ending—most of The Good Dinosaur’s punches land soft, made worse by the disconnect that exists between the overly cartoonish style of the characters and the photorealistic landscapes.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Visually, The Good Dinosaur boasts some of the most amazingly photo-realistic sets I have seen in any animated film.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    The Good Dinosaur is hardly catastrophic. But the movie is a lot like Arlo. On its own, it seems fine; just don’t compare it to its capable siblings.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mark Feeney

    A very middling movie, it does have a nifty premise.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    The Good Dinosaur is no instant classic like its sublime predecessor “Inside Out,” but is modestly pleasing in its own way.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Sobczynski

    A film that has some promising elements and which often seems as if it is on the verge of evolving into something wonderful but never quite manages to turn that particular corner. Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    Given the work lavished on every detail of the glorious backdrop, it’s a pity that the story happening in front of it is so familiar and safe.

    Empire Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Notably undisciplined for a Pixar plot, it feels like a lot of heavy lifting to get to the same old lessons about kinship and finding your clan.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    The Good Dinosaur emerges as a visually breathtaking work of computer-generated animation that is ultimately unable to compensate for a disappointingly derivative script.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s pretty, occasionally cute, but trippy — random. Yeah, there’s one credited screenwriter, but more than all but the worst Pixar product, it shows the signs of “written by committee.”

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Chuck Bowen

    The main character is a collection of insecurities that have been calculatedly assembled so as to teach children the usual lessons about bravery, loyalty, and self-sufficiency.

  • Richard Roeper

    The Good Dinosaur is wildly uneven, but you have to give it points for trying to be something different.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • John Semley

    More manipulative, maudlin trash from the Disney-Pixar content farm.

    The Good Dinosaur looks great, of course, but it’s not in the league we’ve come to expect.
