It says something about the production and about Harryhausen's artistry when we realize that Gwangi, the snarling dinosaur created from a tabletop model, is the most realistically alive character on the screen. Full Review
Rating: 6/10 -- The Valley of the Gwangi is a curious beast of a film. Full Review
Rating: 6/10 -- Best thought of as one of the pictures to get out of the way later rather than sooner when you decide to see everything Ray Harryhausen did. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
Rating: B- -- An implausible B film fantasy sci-fi venture. But it should delight the fans of special effects maven Ray Harryhausen more than others. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 3/5 -- Cowboys and dinosaurs! Too bad we root for the dinos, but the cowboys win.
How can a dinosaur fan of any age not love 'Gwangi,' in which the title Allosaurus makes his public debut with the unscheduled addition of a screaming dwarf between his jaws?
