More than 10 years back, I watched a live-action movie on television where a brontosaurus kind of dinosaur is wounded in a cave with a man and a kid near it. The humans look civilized and it's definitely not from the Jurassic Park series.

All I remember is that dinosaur is wounded on its side and probably dies afterwards. It's from a Hollywood movie. This scene happens during the night. There's only one brontosaurus (or any harmless kind of dinosaur), injured and a 30-40 year old man and a kid beside it. They both are sad. It's in a cave like setting. Their clothes are normal ones as far as I remember

I have searched all over the internet and couldn't find anything related to it.

  • There was a movie called Babe, about a family of saurpods in the deepest african jungle- I think there was at least one sequel.

  • Also it might be one of the "Journey to the center of the Earth", based on Jules Vernes' book, film adaptations from the mid-2000s. Surprisingly, at least one of these movies had dinosaurs if I recall...

    It's baby- secret of the lost legend, there are no sequels for that movie. I came across this result , I'm not sure. Does the dinosaur die/get injured in the movie? @nu'daq

  • 1959,1989,1993,2004 I haven't noticed any such scenes in these movies. I you have noticed, please let me know. And it's definitely not the 2008 versions, I would remember if it were from them. @loki

  • @nithin You're right I think. In the 2008 version there's a scene with a man (B. Fraser of "The Mummy" fame), a kid and a T-Rex, that's why I was confused.

Isn't it the movie "Dinosaurus!"?

In the story they dig up a Tyrannosaurus and a Brontosaurus along with a caveman. The Brontosaurus and the caveman become good friends with the child main character, however the Brontosaurus is gravely wounded by the Rex after a fight and dies shortly after.


I would say it is Loch Ness (1996). The scene described is near the ending.

Title screen for "Loch Ness"

An image taken from the movie, you can see the kid and the dinosaur in the cave. Cave, kid, and dinosaur

  • Hi, welcome to SF&F. You could make this a better answer if you edit it to include some details of the movie and show how it matches the question.
