    Plot: The sub-zero heroes from the worldwide blockbusters "Ice Age" and "Ice Age: The Meldown" are back, on an incredible adventure...for the ages. Scrat is still trying to nab the ever-elusive nut (while, maybe, finding true love); Manny and Ellie await the birth of their mini-mammoth; Sid the sloth gets into trouble when he creates his own makeshift family after finding some dinosaur eggs; and Diego the saber-toothed tiger wonders if he's growing too 'soft' hanging with his pals. On a mission to rescue the hapless Sid, the gang ventures into a mysterious underground world, where they have some close encounters with dinosaurs, battle flora and fauna run amok - and meet a relentless, one-eyed, dino-hunting weasel named Buck.

    THE VERDICT:

    Reno Ooi says:

    'Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosours' -- something I don't quite expect from after watching Ice Age 2. Surely the producer didn't think about making it a trilogy when making the first one. It's wide popularity by kids and adult as well is what make this franchise going on. Strictly, it can't be really considered a trilogy as the connection among all the three stories is fragile and neglectable.

    Story-wise, it's indeed a great comedy cartoon. 80% of the conversations are humour. So, basically, you can laugh starting the story till the end. It can lighten up your day by watching it. You don't need any basic knowledge of the prequels to understand this third installment. All you need is just relax and laugh.



    Cast-wise, it can be summed up as everyone from the previous ones plus a new but favourable character - Buck. Buck is clearly an Ice-Aged version of the character from the book 'Old Man and the Sea'. Everyone of the story are equally fun and easy to appreciate their characters.

    Overall, it's, again, another movie which you can leave your brain at home to attend to. It's definitely good to watch it to kill some time, and those comedic scenes remain funny and laughable no matter how many times you watch it.
