Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Updated on February 24, 2013

Ice age meets Jurassic Park

The lovable cast of Ice Age is back for another funny sequel. The film takes place a few years after the second movie, where Manny (Ray Ramono) and Ellie (Queen Latifah) are having a baby. Which has Sid (John Leguizamo) and Diego (Dennis Leary) feeling left out, as Manny has no more time to spend with them anymore since his wife's pregnancy. Diego wants to live out on his own as he feels too much like a house cat, so he yearns for the life of adventure. As for Sid, lets just say he tries his hat at parenting, when he discovers three dinosaur eggs stranded in a cave. Unfortunately, this also leads to a very angry tyrannosaurus rex mother, that comes by wanting her babies back. When Sid foolishly refuses to give them up, and the kiddies refuse to let their mom kill him, she has no choice and drags Sid along with the babies back into the cave, that leads to underground utopia where dinosaurs still exist. Worried for Sid's saftety, Manny and the gang mount up a rescue to try to find Sid, while trying to escape for their lives from the dangerous prehistoric dangers that awaits them. Guided by their dinosaurian expert, Buck (Simon Pegg) whom has a real thrill for adventure, and a bit crazy as well. "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" story may not have the same emotional depth as "Shrek" or the "Incredibles", but it does offer a lot of heart. In the various scenes, as Manny tries to cope with the idea of becoming a father, and Diego trying to figure out his place in life, will make audiences relate heavily with the characters. Sid and Scrat (Chris Wedge) are still pretty hillarious to watch as they provide the comedy relief, throughout the film. Plus, seeing Scrat and Scratte (Karen Disher), Scrat's new love interest, fight over a walnut is just too funny to watch. The animation in this film is great as to be expect. Sadly, I didn't catch this film in "3-d" but from what I saw, the level of detail in the computer animation was pretty solid. "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" isn't by any means the best family film out there, but it's definitely one of the few that both adults and children will enjoy watching together.

      I love the cast behind the voices...Sid the sloth by John Leguizamo is always a favorite and the entire plot is amazingly funny and cute! Something the whole family can enjoy and actually someone of any age as long as you let your inner child free! Thanks Stevvenix for the great review!

      yeah, i agree. i think one of the great things about this movie, is that like "Incredibles" and "Up", the adult humor is so subtle that it's enough for adults to pick up on it, but it won't seem too graphic for kids to hear.
