Movie Talk

Boisterous, colourful and warm-hearted, with energetic action scenes, knockabout slapstick humour and lush visuals.

Set four million years in the past, The Croods nonetheless feels like a step-forward for the usually pop-culture cribbing DreamWorks' studio. More like this, please.

Movie Metropolis

The first act may be a little slow, but once this animated caveman comedy gets rolling, it's a rollicking good family movie. No wonder there's already a TV series and a sequel in development.

The incredible, surprising design - the vibrant colors, imaginative shapes and textures that make up the prehistoric world - is the movie's real star.

As well as being pacy, energetically animated and stuffed full of modern-day references, The Croods also casts off any lingering doubt that DreamWorks is moving into the character-driven domain normally dominated by Pixar.

The Croods is simple enough in its story and structure that its emotional honesty and touching message will catch you quite off-guard.

It's not only entertaining, it's pretty darn visually impressive. On occasion, it's even rather touching.

Dreamworks have done far more than simply dust off The Flintstones 2.0; The Croods may not yet be a household name, but with their personal brand of buffoonery and heart, you'll be wanting an introduction.
