The Croods: A New Age Review
About the film:
The Croods have survived their fair share of dangers and disasters, from fanged prehistoric beasts to surviving the end of the world, but now they will face their biggest challenge of all: another family. The Croods need a new place to live. So, the first prehistoric family sets off into the world in search of a safer place to call home. When they discover an idyllic walled-in paradise that meets all their needs, they think their problems are solved … except for one thing. Another family already lives there: the Bettermans.
The Bettermans (emphasis on the “better”)—with their elaborate treehouse, amazing inventions, and irrigated acres of fresh produce—are a couple of steps above the Croods on the evolutionary ladder. When they take the Croods in as the world’s first houseguests, it isn’t long before tensions escalate between the cave family and the modern family.
Just when all seems lost, a new threat will propel both families on an epic adventure outside the safety of the wall, one that will force them to embrace their differences, draw strength from each other and forge a future together.
The Croods: A New Age picks up with Eep voiced by Emma Stone and Guy voiced by Ryan Reynolds falling in love. While the family is searching for a new place to settle down, they come across a beautiful paradise….there’s just one problem; another family lives there!
The Betterman’s recognize Guy as they helped raise him when his parents passed away. They reunite and teach the family a better way to live, but some of the family is not interested in change.
When the couple tries to break up Guy and Eep by reintroducing their daughter to Guy, it causes yet another rift in the two families. But that becomes the least of their worries when invaders kidnap some of the family members and try to have them killed. The two families will have to work together to save everyone.
The film offers lots of funny and silly moments that will keep you and your family entertained throughout. The high-quality animation is outstanding too. We really enjoyed the film!
