A prehistoric family embark on a journey of discovery in this animated comedy featuring the vocal talents of Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds. Content to stay within the confines of their stone-age cave, Grug (Cage), his wife Ugga (Catherine Keener), daughter Eep (Emma Stone), son Thunk (Clark Duke), and mother-in-law Gran (Cloris Leachman) soon find themselves homeless when a seismic upheaval literally brings the roof down. As they venture out into a wondrous, unknown world in search of a new home, the family soon team up with a nomadic caveboy called Guy (Ryan Reynolds), who offers his own unique take on the challenges ahead.

Took my 47 year old, to quench her need for to see a `cutesy' prehistoric animation, I must say I was pleasantly surprised the film was rather good. The narrative is engaging and the animation is some the best I have seen lately. As another reviewer has said the story is quite funny in the way it deals with fear of the unknown, being alone and life in general when you trying just to survive to the next day. Your inner child should really like this film, well worth a very good five stars. I must say my 47 year old was very well behaved!

Andrew’s Blu-ray review – DreamWorks is the definition of a hit-or-miss animation studio. 'Rise of the Guardians' was superb in both substance and style, especially likes of 'Puss in Boots' [that I thought was awesome], whereas 'Madagascar 3' and their most recent dreadful animation 'Turbo' have all been definitely thumbs down, big time.

I took my family to see this film - age range of 9-65 and everyone came out saying how much they had enjoyed it. We have seen loads of animated films and thought we had seen it all, but this proved we haven't. There is plenty to be amused by and the story is interesting - the scene when the family are introduced to fire is really funny (the character is advised to hide from it in the tall dry grass) but there is one scene involving the dad which is quite moving (my 10 year old was crying). The basic story is that our cave family is the only one left in the area and the father has taken an overly-cautious approach to life to keep the family safe making them spend a lot of time closed in their cave. The daughter is bored and frustrated and one night sneaks out of the cave and finds a boy who can make fire. He tells her the end of the world is coming and the action begins from there after the familys cave is destroyed. Should they trust the new boy and follow him to the mountains or keep with the fathers idea of finding a new cave to hide in? The ensuing journey has plenty of ups and downs along the way and there's the message about sometimes taking risks in life to make it better. Visually the film is stunning, the animation is fantastic and I highly recommend it.

Loved this film, funny, serious, warm. Paradies almost every aspect of family life. I dare you to not recognise someone you know in each character, especially Eep. Good all round family film and a must for christmas.

Animation is breathtaking. The opening scene is mesmerising. The humour flows from one scene to the next. There is laughter, sadness, tension and joy.
One of the best films of the year so far. Definite ten out of ten. I would say that younger viewers may get scared, so be careful to sit with the little ones as the end scenes approach.

I am not surprised this is nominated for an Oscar. Good story and great effects; however, as it is a story of caveman survival, it does have some scary moments, so I would not recommend for very young children. The 3D Blu Ray worked well on my Philips player, which has the latest firmware. Together with my HD600 projector and 3D LX, this gave a prefect performance that even my wife enjoyed!

I did enjoy this film, much more them my kids, who are under 7, which leads me to believe that it is set for older kids probably over 10s. The animation is great as anyone would expect from Dreamworks. I liked the story as well. The only complaint I had about the film was that it did get a bit repetitive towards the middle of the film.

Meet the Croods the last surviving cavemen. They survive by following the rules fear everything, and stay in the cave as much as possible. This is fine for most of the family but Eep the older daughter has a natural sense of daring and adventure, one night leaving the cave Eep meets a guy called Guy, who is scrawny but inventive and survives by his intelligence rather than his strength. Guy tells Eep the world is going to end in earth quakes and volcanic explosions, and he is moving to higher ground towards the Sun. The father/leader of the Croods (Grub) has a natural dislike for Guy for two reasons one his daughter likes him, and two his ideas are inspiring the family to forget the most important rule of fearing everything. However Grub realises he need Guy if his family is to survive.

An enjoyable family film. With great characters and good character development, al little predictable but the animation and few funny one liners make up for this all in all a good film.
