Critic Reviews for Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan
Harryhausen emerges as a charming, likable pioneer, a mood helped along by the adoring nature of this profile.
The most fascinating point made in the film is that it was Harryhausen who invented the way we all think dinosaurs moved. Those gestures - adopted as truth even by palaeontologists - first came from him.
A shallow, fannish tribute to the stop-motion master who made The 7th Voyage of Sinbad.
You come away feeling Harryhausen perhaps deserves a more dynamic tribute, but it's a solid round-up of an extraordinary career.
It may not be lavishly produced (unlike many of the films RH worked upon), but above all it functions well as a thunderous round of applause for the career of a much-loved movie magician.
Audience Reviews for Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan
On the DVD of 20 Million Miles to Earth there is a different documentary about the career of Ray Harryhausen. It has some different graphics and interviews, but many of the same anecdotes across the timeline of Harryhausen's life. I watched this one on Netflix. What it contains that the other lacks are interviews with filmmakers like Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg, Tim Burton, and Guillermo del Torro, as well as other effects artists who talk about the influence that Harryhausen's creatures had on them. And Harryhausen speaks for himself quite often.
