Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (Ice Age 3)

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The manic pace quickly grows tiresome, as does the influx of cloying baby animals."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"As with the two earlier films, it's all a mite disorderly in tempo but often highly amusing and great fun in the main."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"The coolest thing about this sequel is the use of dinosaurs."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
"Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs works on its own terms, as a distraction for the children and an inoffensive, if unfulfilling, time at the theater for their parents."
‑ Sonny Bunch, Washington Times
"Certainly not terrible, but ultimately forgettable and that means you should skip it."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"Rather than evolving, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs treads on familiar and infertile ground."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"An improvement over its massively forgettable predecessor."
‑ William Goss, Cinematical
"I'm mystified by those who find these characters appealing."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"Those who complain about the feeble jokes and contrived situations should be forced to watch the first two films and defend them."
‑ Daniel M. Kimmel, New England Movies Weekly
"The whole movie is more of the same and I'm afraid the franchis is running out of steam."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"There's a sense of ineptness in a script that constantly reaches, with only modest success, for amusing things that the mammoths and their friends can do."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"When the story does get underway, the incident that sets it into motion seems thrown in%u2014precisely what you'd expect for the third installment in a series that was already tired by the second."
‑ Rubin Safaya,
"The quality of the stories has gradually declined in each succeeding sequel since the original film was released in 2002, but the technical quality of computer animation has improved during that same time."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"It is not the year for pre-historic comebacks."
‑ Jolene Mendez, Entertainment Spectrum
