At a glance at Ice Age 3:
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009) is the third film of Ice Age series. They are animated comedy films about the adventures of prehistoric animals living and surviving in the Ice Age. This time around the odd herd somehow ended up in a whole new unknown ice-less world filled with dinosaurs they have thought long extinct below their own and scene-stealer Scrat meets Scratte, forgetting his beloved acorn for the first time!

It’s the dawn of a new era for each member of this hairy herd, but thankfully some things never change.
Ice Age 3 Review
This is second film series that I did a personal research on and there are many negative reviews. I don't understand why most film critics and movie reviewers don't like this film. It is understandable for the first two films as there are plenty of shortcomings but this film is certainly so much better than predecessors. Not to mention, this film series is also rightfully children films; you can't expect it not to be lovable and be more appealing to children. There are already thousands of films out there that are more appealing to adults more than children... Come on, don't be harsh! D;
Anyway, kudos to Blue Sky Studios. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009) is a delightful sequel and a very pleasant one. I love how the characters has been improved and developed since the last film and I liked this version of them, especially Manny and Ellie! There are also even more prehistoric baby animals in this film, I loved the baby mammoth and baby dinosaurs so much; they are so cute! How not to become a fan of Ice Age after watching this? T-T
Okay, moving away from commenting based personal likings, this film has beautiful visuals and an interesting world inspired by prehistoric times. Each film they introduce more distinct characters and add more spice to it; the plot is simple but fun to watch. It is truly a great pleasure to watch them again many days ago just to write on this!
Who will like this?
If you liked their first and second film, you'll find yourself liking this film. Majority of people can never have enough of Scrat so people who loved him and prehistoric lovers will love this film too!
PS. If you have never watched the Ice Age films, I would recommend you to watch this first as the first two films may be dead boring for you mature movie lovers.
