Wolf Tracer's Dinosaur Island (also known simply as Dinosaur Island) is a American direct-to-video computer-animated action-fantasy film produced by Colin Slater and Wolf Tracer Studios, infamously known for a visually-similar film, Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa.

Plot

A deep sea fishing expedition comes to a halt when a freak storm appears and the passengers are washed ashore. Youngsters help the survivors avoid endless hazards and the evil island leader while they try to escape being devoured by the rampaging ravenous carnivores of Dinosaur Island. 

Why It Sucks

  1. It rips off Jurassic ParkGMW and Arthur Conan Doyle's novel The Lost World.
  2. While the CGI is slightly better than Rapsittie, the animation is still horrid. The character models are blocky and look unfinished with awkward, creepy facial expressions. Just like the humans, the dinosaurs are equally as blocky and texture-less.
  3. The backgrounds look really ugly, and some background elements are just copy-pasted JPEG images.
  4. Repetitive and bland dialogue, for instance, one character would say one intangible line and another would repeat it with confusion.
  5. It has an extremely generic twist villain.
  6. The camera work is absolutely ridiculous, as it's either a close-up of the character's faces or a bizarre chase sequence.
  7. Out of all things, the film has the nerve to end on a terrible cliffhanger.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Decent voice acting, despite the wasted talents.
  2. The song that plays during the end credits is pretty catchy.
  3. The human character designs are not as hideous as Rapsittie, although that's not saying much.
  4. As mentioned before, the animation is actually better than Rapsittie, but not by a whole lot.
