The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island, the fifth installment in the Land Before Time series, we have the return of Chomper in this one! Which I absolutely loved, because he was such an adorable character in the second sequel to the series. Littlefoot and his friends are back and they do get into another squwabble, but it's all good to continue their adventures. I've so far have actually enjoyed these sequels, as silly as they are, I think that they are great for the kids and even as a family film. The characters are lovable and the story has great morals on friendship, trust and respect. I'd rather have my kids watching this vs. some of the shows on the Disney channel today. But The Mysterious Island was a great addition to the story as we continue to see Littlefoot grow with his friends.
After a cloud of locusts descend upon the Great Valley, devouring all plants and leaving it a barren wasteland, the inhabitants must seek another place where they can survive until the plants in the Great Valley have grown back. However, the "Swarming Leaf Gobblers" have left a path of devastation behind them, leaving no food for the dinosaurs to find. After looking for days through this desolation, the herd fight and threaten to separate. The main characters do not want to be separated, so they set out to find a location with plentiful food. They leave a trail for the grownups to find them with, and eventually reach the ocean. There, they see a verdant island connected to the mainland by a thin land bridge. On their way, an earthquake occurs, which they narrowly escape, and which wipes out the bridge. Isolated on the island, they try out Cera's idea to return by using a log as a boat. However, a "swimming sharptooth" attacks, and in the confusion and fright which follows, they end up on the island again. That night, they remember their families, while the herd, who followed the trail, sleep on the shores of the beach on the mainland, worrying for them. The next morning, the children wake up to the shadow of a Sharptooth. They take off, but find themselves cornered by high cliffs. They huddle together when the sharptooth approaches, only to find that it is Chomper. He then helps them to hide from his parents, who are also on the island, and provides them with food upon their request. However, an overcautious Cera openly displays distrust to Chomper because he was a Sharptooth, which grieves him, and he departs. Littlefoot follows him and apologizes, but is interrupted by Chomper's mother. But with a sharptooth's reputation, they don't know if this will be a good or bad meeting as well with the woe of not knowing if they will ever see their families again.
The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island is a good movie, I'm really disappointed in the ratings on these movies, after all they are more meant for the kids. As a child's movie, it's a great one, as a movie that the whole family can enjoy together, I think it's very possible if you give it a chance. Plus you just have got to love Chomper, how could you not? He's so adorable and I loved seeing the sharptooth's reaction to their friendship. But this is a great story and I think these movies are good so far, I'm looking forward to watching the next sequel.
