The Great Longneck Migration
2 April 2009 | by Smells_Like_CheeseSee all my reviews

The Land Before Time X: The Great Longneck Migration, the tenth installment in the Land Before Time series. This is the best sequel I have seen so far! Seriously, this is a really good animated film and deserves a higher rating. Again, I am so confused, when I started watching these movies I was expecting nothing but trash from what the users have been rating them. But I always try to give my best honest feedback on the film and honestly this was a terrific story. The animation is getting a little bit more computer which I agree is sort of taking away from what the original was giving us, but it's a new generation and still the bright colors and characters were still a pleasure to watch. We finally get to meet Littlefoot's father and also more Longnecks for Littlefoot, so we get to see what his life could be like if he grew up with his mother.

Plagued by mysterious dreams, Littlefoot, his grandparents and all the other Longnecks depart the Great Valley, joining up with other Longneck herds as they travel to a single location; with Cera, Petrie, Spike, and Ducky following the herds to an enormous crater, which they believe is the culmination of their journey. Littlefoot learns that long ago, that the sun was going to fall. However, a number of Longnecks came together to this very spot and raised up their necks, lifting the Circle back to where it had been. According to this myth, this stretching of their necks is how the Longnecks got their long necks. History is about to repeat itself, and so the Longnecks have returned to the crater in order to save the sun once more. Littlefoot's friends miss him though and decide to travel to find him and take him back home meeting another Longneck along the way. However, another surprise is in store, as Littlefoot meets his father, Bron, for the first time in his whole life. However, Bron isn't alone. Since parting from his now deceased wife, he has become guardian to another young brachiosaurus, Shorty, who becomes jealous of Littlefoot since Bron is spending more time with him. One dawn, Shorty tries to run away, but Littlefoot stops him and convinces him to rejoin the migration, he even goes as far as to suggest they become brothers. At this point, Littlefoot's friends arrive. Soon after, following a Sharptooth attack there is a furious battle that the group must face.

The Land Before Time X: The Great Longneck Migration is the best sequel that I've seen so far of the series. I can't wait to see the next sequel which I do have to wait for sadly, so a comment will be coming soon. But I have to tell you the humor is much more for the kids as the adults, I even laughed a few times, which I have with the previous sequels, but not as much as with The Great Longneck Migration. I mainly loved watching Littlefoot's friends going on their own to find Littlefoot, especially Ducky and Spike, they are so cute together. This was a touching story as well with Littlefoot discovering his dad and the relationship they could have together. I highly recommend this movie, if you are going to watch one of the Land Before Time sequels, I suggest this one.

7/10
