Summary: "You shall never not fear." Thrilling animated movie! However, needs to be sanitized because of some brutal images. Finally we understand why fear. I thought it would be closer to reality. ***SPOILER ALERT*** Dad's sacrifice saved the movie. Emma Stone's voice is very recognizable, just saying.
Excerpt: Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds needed this push in their life. Chris Sanders (who created a wonderful How to train your dragon) comes back with help from Kirk DeMicco in The Croods. A silly, rusty and superlative fun with right content and emotional punch to keep the interest on, for the film. Sanders’s visual world is dangerous, as he is depicting the end of the world when cave men dwelled. Here is Grug (Finally Cage in a brilliant voice over) and his family.
Excerpt: I'm conflicted over The Croods. While I though the design and animation was quite well done - the story and characters just didn't connect with me. What you have is really a basic family adventure mixed with the requisite comedy/drama quotient and wrapped up in a caveman skin. While it isn't done badly - it's pretty standard in my eyes.
Excerpt: The Croods (2013) The Croods consist of Grug (Nicolas Cage), his wife Ugga (Catherine Keener), grandmother Gran (Cloris Leachman), son Thunk (Clark Duke) and daughter Eep (Emma Stone) are your ordinary, run-of-the-mill caveman family. Their world is turned upside down when their beloved cave is destroyed and they must find a new place to live.
Summary: Visually resplendent but the quirky humour hits below-par most of the time. Crug, Eep, Ugga, Thunk, Gran and Sandy make up the members of the boisterous, clumsy but, I guess, vernacularly bright, Croods family. The Croods are a pre-historic, hunting and gathering family, who fear 'new things' and curiosity, and live by the motto, "never not be afraid". The 'teenage girl' of the family, Eep (Emma Stone), ends up betraying this rule, and delves into her adventurous side.
Summary: Awesome to look and Emma Stone is brilliant as the sassy Eep. It is a little cheesy and doesn't hold a candle to the more brilliant likes of Up and Finding Nemo, but is a solid entry into the animation category!
Summary: Klart under förväntan. Bara seeg och långtråkig med förutsägbar humor och tråkiga karaktärer. Den här filmen riktar sig nog till de allra minsta som inte har några krav. Ingen film man satt och asflabbade åt eller några intellektuella insikter. Det här är en av de sämre animerade filmerna jag sett de senaste 10 åren.
