If 'The Meltdown' was a misstep, then 'Dawn of the Dinosaurs' is a bust. The family dilemmas hold no weight or solid reasoning to the characters besides the typical "I'm anxious and over-protective for my child". Story is completely one note, with the core ensemble serving as hollow stereotypes of their former selves using gags in place of personality. Simon Pegg manages to make a typical stock wildcard character seem entertaining despite his many overdone (to death) jokes. There's no attempt to make a good film. The best moments - and ONLY laughs - come from the continued short side plot of Scrat the squirrel. If it weren't for this likable funny character, I'd have forgotten the entire movie. An empty experience.

Good animation but not very good.

Enjoyable third installment that, like the first two films, skates by largely on the charm and character of its voice cast. There is also a lot of heart in this film that pushes it above silly slapstick moments. I know the animation here is kind of minimalist, but I honestly find it sort of beautiful.

Third one's the charm

I was a little bit hesitant about seeing another Ice Age movie because over the years it's very rare a third installment has anything new to offer. But surprisingly enough this one did. And bringing that old humor back is probably the best thing that ever happened to this movie. The comedy is light at the beginning and then it becomes totally intense and then becomes light again towards the end. So what I’m saying is they totally balanced it out. I’m also glad that Syd wasn’t given the burden to carry this movie with his slapstick antics they’ve got new ones to that for him. Also Diego being good didn’t feel awkward and I like the subplot for his character. Manny the mammoth has become a little bit soft though but then again who doesn’t like Ray Romano....
