Product Description

Third instalment of the popular CGI-animated franchise. While Scrat the squirrel is still trying to get his paws on that ever-elusive nut, Manny (voiced by Ray Romano) and Ellie (Queen Latifah) anxiously await the birth of their mini-mammoth, and Diego the sabre-toothed tiger (Denis Leary) wonders if he's growing too laid-back living the life of a pampered house cat. Meanwhile, Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo) gets into trouble when he creates his own makeshift family by hijacking some unusually large eggs, and inadvertently discovers a mysterious underground world where dinosaurs still roam.


Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs opens with the stitched-together prehistoric family about to become a biological one: Manny (voiced by Ray Romano) and his mate Ellie (Queen Latifah) are expecting a baby mammoth. Unfortunately, this makes Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo) and Diego the sabre-toothed tiger (Denis Leary) feel left out. Diego, who worries he’s losing his edge, decides to head out on his own, while Sid adopts three suspiciously large eggs that he’s found through a crack in the ice. Up to this point, the movie is perilously sappy--does anyone, particularly a kid, want to watch a kid’s movie about parenthood and impending middle age? Fortunately, the eggs turn out to be dinosaur eggs from a pre-mammalian underworld, and when the mama T-Rex comes to rescue her rambunctious little ones, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs transforms into a delightful comic adventure. The emotional side of the Ice Age movies has always been a tad mawkish, so it’s smart that Dawn of the Dinosaurs emphasises physical comedy. Clearly, the animators have been inspired by a wild fusion of Road Runner cartoons and Buster Keaton. The character of Scratte, with his non-verbal, monomaniacal efforts to get that last acorn (doubled in this movie with the addition of a female counterpart), is only the most obvious reflection of this sensibility. The animators have great fun with the differences in scale between the mammals and the dinosaurs, and the introduction of a deranged Australian weasel named Buck (Simon Pegg, Shaun of the Dead) pushes everything into Loony-Tune territory. Let Pixar tug at our heartstrings; Ice Age aims to tickle the funny bone and does a fine job of it.--Bret Fetzer,

Careful - some reviews will tell you the entire plot of this film and ruin it for you - I won't
Before I buy a DVD for my kids, I always ask myself 2 questions:
Did the kids enjoy it in the cinema?
Will they want to watch it again and again?
It's a resounding yes on both counts here
This was a top afternoon's entertainment and the kids (6 and 8) absolutely loved it, were never bored and talked about it for hours afterwards.
What more do you want?
We thought this was the best Ice Age yet; a lot more adventurous, exciting and fast-paced than the others.
The 'Lost World' premise and a couple of excellent new characters really brought the movie to life and opened up new possibilities.
Inevitably, this will be compared to Pixar movies and I think it stands up to that comparison very well - VERY HIGH praise indeed.
Buy this and know your kids will get pleasure from it over and over again and you will too!

5.0 out of 5 stars You want cheering up then buy this......... 29 Nov 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
My husband and myself nearly did ourselves a mischief as we laughed so much watching this brilliantly made film. Sometimes sequels don't always live up to the hype but in the case of the Ice Ace trilogy the producers just can't do any wrong in my opinion.

The old 'herd' are back together again and there is exciting news on the way for Manni and Ellie. However, Diago and Sid are starting to feel like cuckoos in the nest and Manni's rather blunt remarks don't exactly help poor dimwitted but kindly Sid. Diago meanwhile is feeling his age and he too strikes out on his own.

It is not long however before Sid gets into an inordinate amount of trouble (he wants to be a Mother) and of course 'the herd' go to his rescue ending up in a kind of Dinotopia, only it isn't exactly that! There they meet an totally loopy Weasel who has evidently been on his own too long and has his own personal reasons for staying there.

Scrat, who has to be my favourite character is back again reprising his role as chief nut hunter/loser/finder until one day he meets his Nemesis and possibly his love, Scratte.

This is a hugely enjoyable film suitable for all the family and there is not a dull moment in it. It's also the sort of film that you could watch again and again and still get something out of.

Will there be Ice Age 4? It's possible and indeed I hope it comes to pass.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loads better than I thought it would be 23 July 2009
I was a bit apprehensive about seeing Dawn of the Dinosaurs after the dull and unimpressive The Meltdown.

I'm happy to say though, that Dawn of the Dinosaurs is actually really good, joyfully revisiting the chaos and momentum of the original. Obviously it's targeted at younger kids, so lots of the jokes undoubtedly fall flat on their faces with slightly older viewers. Some are decidedly 'cheap' too, unfortunately- which is what brought the film down for me. Still, the gag rate is incredibly high. Some hit, some miss, and when the good laughs do come, they're really damn funny.

As ever with Ice Age, the animation is rather low-fi (not to the horrid extents of Hoodwinked, don't worry), but it's uniquely beautiful. This time around, the animators have really upped their game: We're treated to lots of gorgeous, colour-saturated landscapes and magical set-pieces. What I liked about Dawn of the Dinosaurs was that we literally take a trip into a whole new world.

The voice cast are all excellent, even though certain characters, such as the genius of Sean William Scott, are foolishly pushed aside. One of the film's main attractions is Simon Pegg, voicing the new character, Buck, who adds an energetic sparkle to proceedings.

Overall, if you're feeling reluctant to see the third in this trilogy due to the dire sequel, there's nothing to worry about. I'm glad to say that Dawn of the Dinosaurs is actually in the same league as the original. With enough one-liners and visual gags, it's almost impossible not to be entertained. You'll like it as much as your kids will.

The Blu-ray transfar for Ice Age 3 is one the best I've seen and just like the first two Ice Age flims you will be laughing nonstop. Scrat are nut hunting nutter has got himself a girlfriend/nemesis called Scratte whom is even more nutty. Sid is even more insane then normal and steals eggs which belong to a T-Rex. Manni and Ellie are going to be parents and Diego is having a mid-life crisis. all in all this an excellent family film in which everyone should enjoy alot.

5.0 out of 5 stars For me the best film I have seen this year 21 Sep 2009
By Kali
I laughed my socks off at this the third in the Ice Age Saga. With laughter and tears I welcomed back Mannie the "Jewish" Mammoth, Ellie the Mammoth who was raised by Possums, her two Possum brothers Eddie and Crash, Diego the Sabre Tooth Tiger and of course Sid the Sloth who creates disaster wherever he goes.

Add to this melee of fun Scrat the Squirrel and his new love interest Scratte a flying squirrel, three T-Rex eggs and a hidden world under the ice and you have a story that is just waiting to be told.

With humour for all the family adults and kids alike, Ice Age 3, Daw of the Dinosaurs is a hoot from beginning to end. Ellie is expecting a baby Mammoth, and Mannie is the panicking dad-to-be. Sid adopts three T-Rex eggs and ends up being adopted himself by their grumpy but basically good mother who realises that Sid is not all bad, he just isn't a meat eater and he certain is no T-Rex look-a-like.

There's the mysterious "Rudy" that even the T-Rex's fear and the fearless Buck, a one eyed weasel who is somewhat insane but totally lovable.

It's none stop laughs and humour from beginning to end and like the previous two Ice Ages, the story line is as funny and as heart warming as it gets.

This is a movie that is just for fun, no hidden messages, no "oh God, that is so INTENSE" moments, it's just about enjoying yourself. And the best part for me? The Acorn Tango with Scrat and Scrattee, I laughed until I almost fell out of my wheelchair.
