Ice Age 3: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs

Yeaah!! The characters are all back. Manny Mammoth (Ray Romano) anxiously awaits the birth of his first child with Ellie (Queen Latifah). Diego the saber-tooth tiger (Denis Leary) sees his skills as a hunter being diminished and ponders leaving the herd. And Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo) feels like the odd man out and wishes for a family of his own.

When he finds dinosaur eggs, Sid is determined to raise them as his own, not thinking that mama dinosaur is close by. She tracks Sid down and takes her eggs and him back to her underground valley habitat where dinosaurs and other animals live. One of them is a one-eyed, dinosaur-hunting weasel named Buck (Simon Pegg), who helps Manny, Diego, Ellie, and Ellie’s possum brothers (Sean William Scott, Josh Peck) when they go looking for Sid.

“Didn’t dinosaurs go extinct millions of years before the ice age?” Well, that isn’t important now, because Ice Age 3 explains that little nugget of knowledge away, by just saying dinosaurs have been living in an underground cavern just under the ice. We’re not here to debate the erroneous claim that it’s completely cold and desolate on the surface, while below a lush rain forest is growing. Maybe the ice creates a greenhouse effect, who knows..hihi

The point is kids won’t be worried about those details, and they shouldn’t be. Ice Age 3 is full of childish jokes, some fun action, and an simple morale they’ll be able to follow. Scrat, the little squirrel-like creature who is eternally chasing that ever elusive acorn, is back! *with romantic version*

By the way,the plotting is limited, stretching the importance of family while at the same time doing nothing of any interest. Splitting the team up takes away from the fun, too many secondary characters only serve as a distraction, and the perils, which include plants, a large dino named Rudy, and floating lava will thrill the kids but be too dull for adult and parents [I thought this is the reason why the man next to me happily got snoring while his childs enjoy the movie very much!]

However I think this movie has a narrow window to make it big, as it is released the week after Transformers big opening, but just two weeks before Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince may takes over the family market. Hopefully bad critics will not affect too much to the collection.

So briefly, the third Ice Age is simplistic, nope overly done, has some excellent animation, nice jokes but its story is quite tired and monotonous..daaa~~

SRi:enjoy watching this movie+his snoring too..huhue


  1. monotonous - dull, tedious, and repetitious
    *oxford dic, 10th edition*

    aku takde rase cmtu pon..yelah kann..gelak smpai tersedak..

  2. ko x rase "kosong" langsung ke tengok cerita tue? [sebbek aku x tua lg-klu x,maunye aku layan bdengkur gak tgk cite tue!hahaha]

    lagipun bg aku jalan cerita dia memang dah bleyh agak dah macamana plot dia [maybe sbab tue yang budak2 nak tengok,director pon dgn sukehatinye bt lah mcm tue~maybe]

    bg aku,akan b++ lagi kbestan dia if more than 30% plot is about Rudy yang ganas tuh-nie,tup2 baru nak tunjuk hebat-dah tumbang,pastu jd tunggangan en buck plaks dah.. hadehlaa~pliss deh..

  3. tunggangan ek?? aku igt die n rudy stil musuh n he finds pleasure bl dpt lawan2 ngn rudy tu psl die cm sdh bl nk naek 'darat' n bl dgr rudy jerit tanda hiduoopp br die rase alive n tak jd mau naek 'darat'..hahahaha
    *pjg lak ayat aku*

    alaa..director tu buat cite utk org cm aku kot..sj2 nk gelak..keh3..gelak aa..gelak smpai ape..

    hang tak tua?? *berfikir smbl garu2 kepala tak gatal smbl pk mendalam kt ayat ni*
    ***stil doing it***

  4. mm,aku rase time dia dngaw rudy's roar-dia xmoo naek sbb dia ade "petualangan" yg harus dteruskan..lpastue-aku rase sbb dia dh bjaya btol2 kalahkan si rudy tuh-makanya tpakselaa kut rudy tue mnerime si buck nie sbg "tuan"nya

    lgpon aku xrase rudy nie cam sgt ganas sbnawnyea-diatue cam lbh kpd pet yg lonely jerk.. so,dia bt sume bnde tue utk tarik attraction kut? ntahlaa laboou~
