Movie Review: Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009 Film)

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is now available on DVD and Blue-Ray

It’s day three of Ice Age week! Where I review the third installment of the Ice Age film series, Dawn of the Dinosaurs.


Produced by 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a super exciting entry to the series that adds a thrill of excitement for the entire family and will bring you into the underground world of Dinosaurs!


Let’s dive into this one! This movie was once again a nicely done animated movie; it was most definitely not a letdown for it being a third installment. The visual effects of the underground world were stunning and the mini-adventures throughout the movie kept me excited as the hunt for Sid continued into the underground world. Though the running time may be short as always, but the movie was still well paced and had enough time to tell its story completely from start to finish. And the epic adventure and music had me on the edge of my seat.


One of the new characters was also one of the best moves they did. Buck, voiced by Simon Pegg, was a very interesting character that brought life into the series and a zing that made this movie so exciting to watch. I cant get enough of him since he’s so exciting to watch. I still holding out hope that he will return in the fifth installment, since he was such a great character.


This movie also introduced a lady Scrat named Scratte that adds more drama for Scrat and his nut, and he soon gets once again caught up in another adventure.


The action sequences in the underground world was some of the best I have ever seen and kept me fascinated by it, and it was one adventure I hated that ended. There’s so many times in my life that I have a desire to personally visit that world and explore it.


The voice cast was excellent as always: With Ray Romano as Manny, John Leguizamo as Sid, Denis Leary as Diego, Simon Pegg as Buck, Queen Latifah as Ellie, Seann William Scott as Crash, and Josh Peck as Eddie.


The rating I would give this movie is five out of five stars; this movie was by far the best movie in the entire series. It was excellent from start to finish, and told an epic story that I love to this day. The voice cast was great as always, including the addition of Simon Pegg as Buck. The visual effects and music were once again stunning and excellent. And this is by far, one of the best animated movies I have ever seen.
