The Croods 4They live on a cave and their surroundings is full or rocks and boulders in a time when the earth is transforming with landforms shifting. They have to abandon their cave and travel to a place where the earth is crumbling with flowing lava but a place full of magnificent trees, brilliant flowers and clear water.

Along the way they encountered Guy, a nomad who helped them conquer their fear of the outside world.The Croods 5

The writing is clever and swift and the movie as a whole is pleasant, funny and very entertaining although at times it is predictable. The animation is also very well done and visually dazzling; the trees and flowers are really magnificent.

Nicolas Cage did the voice of Grug, Catherine Keener did the voice of Uuga, Emma Stone did Eap and Cloris Leachman is the Gran. Directed by Chris Sanders and Kirk De Micco.

    The animation and color is really great although it has a very weak story and a bit cheesy. Good animation movie if have nothing to do for the weekend.

    Good animation movie with very fast pacing, the animation is great too with bright colors.

    The Croods is like The Flintstones meets Ice Age. The movie it was ok overall; I expected more. There are scenes in the movie that I think are not necessary specially the killing and eating.

  5. Adelle says:

    Nothing ground breaking as far as story goes but still an entertaining nevertheless. It is a warn and funny movie. The animation is really well done.

    Saw this movie and I thought it was very funny. It has a touching story although unbelievable as most child movies go (but then this is a movie, right?).

  10. Marie S. says:

    Very funny and entertaining movie. All the kids in the theater laughed throughout the whole movie. Fun for the whole family.

  11. Joanne says:

    Not bad. I laughed out loud a few times. The animation is really very good too.

  12. Sandra says:

    A visually good film with a very good story bit it borrowed the themes from several quality movies. It has very the lessons for children. The visuals are amazing, and it seems that every new animated film tries to do something never done before.

  13. Dana says:

    This is good and solid family movie but I didn’t have any hard laughs throughout the movie. However it was visually entertaining, it is very creative and with a good pacing.

  14. Erilo says:

    Good family movie and it is amazing while the movie lacks the big question of what’s going on it is fun and full of excitement and is enough to keep you on your seat.

    Uninspired animation movie from DreamWorks. Very old story about a tomboyish girl coming of age. But it has great animation.

  16. Jimmy says:

    The movie is visually dazzling but it is filled with hilarious slapstick, It is an enjoyable movie unfortunately it had some sentimentality which drags the film down but it offers pleasant family togetherness. Dreamworks has made another delightful film even though The Croods is not as par as the previous animation movies it had made.
