Stay in the cave!
on 25 March 2013
This is a film, which is set in prehistoric Pliocene era known as;
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. This is a very good cross-generational film that will appeal to children as well as adults – it has universal appeal. The narrative is engaging and the animation is some the best I have seen lately. The narrative deals with the “Croods”, and is a primeval comedy undertaking that follows the world's first family as they embark on a voyage of a lifetime, when the cave that has always safeguarded them from danger is demolished. Trekking across a remarkable landscape, the Croods discover an unbelievable new world filled with fantastic creatures.
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. For us it was a kind of rib-tickling, emotionally satisfying film. 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!
