In the movie, a relict population of dinosaurs continued breeding for nearly 65,000,000 years after their kindred became extinct. They have been sequestered away, allowing them to evolve to larger sizes as the competition would be more fierce and would need to grow bigger for the need for resources. Also, 65,000,000 years is sufficient to evolve whole new taxonomic families and orders, as mammoths, sloths, cats and humans sprung from humble roots in a fraction of that time. Since the scope of this "what if" scenario can accommodate many speculations, alleged inaccuracies about size, color, posture, diet, etc., become redundant. See more »

In the original cinema release, the 20th Century Fox logo at the beginning was surrounded by snow covered pine trees, and the searchlights were replaced by small, smouldering volcanoes. However, on the DVD & Blu-ray Disc versions, it has been changed back to the normal version of the logo. Apart from this, the film remains unchanged. See more »

Its all about family in essence. Starting one, keeping one, becoming one, protecting one. A family film about family is always going to ring the right bells (unless Eddie Murphys in it), and this is no exception! It's funny, its sharp, it's clever, and when it wants too will tug on your heart strings. It's everything a great family film should be. It has just as much humour to keep the grown ups happy as it does the kids.
It's not perfect; it starts fairly slowly with scenes we've already scene twenty times in the trailer, but the further you go into this adventure the more fun you will have.
A fantastic new addition to the franchise is "Buck" (Simon Pegg) a looney tune hermit possum who joins the herd around half way through. When he enters the scene, the whole movie shifts up a gear! Some of the stuff he comes out with will have you rolling in the isle! If you have the chance, you must see it in 3D! It's amazing how this new version of such an old and dated technology can suck you even deeper into a film! The chases are more exciting, the locations more real, it works so well! And it doesn't give you a migraine!
Overall - Like a franchise should, Ice Age gets better and better and better! If you liked the first, you'll love the second! If you loved the second, you'll go crazy for the third! 2D - 8/10 3D - 9/10
