Part three of the icy adventure series sees the filmmakers allowing themselves a few more tricks by tunnelling under the ice to a hidden land of dinosaurs. Not terribly original, but the target audience are probably too young to remember any other examples of lost valleys – always introduced in wide shots with copious amounts of Brachiosaurus necks and bunches of depressed herbivores gathered around ponds.

Very funny for both kids and adults. Just as good as the 1st and 2nd Ice Age.

With appreciably greater emphasis on action than its predecessors, and clever use of 3-D trickery to enhance storytelling as well as offer spectacle, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs could prove the third time really is the charm.

Mildly amusing for grown ups but the kids love it and that is what matters.

More of the same, but the sharper animation and extra action keeps it interesting.

While this latest Ice Age doesn't necessarily up the ante, this franchise is a very user-friendly one and a welcome sight for frazzled parents everywhere as school holidays loom.

Pretty much any sign of creative life gets left out in the cold in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, the monotonous, strictly by-the-numbers third edition of the wildly lucrative digitally animated franchise.

The kids were happy enough, and the animation was just as good as we've come to expect from Hollywood. Although I reckon the vocal performances sounded a little tired and uninterested this time around.
