CRITICS RATING:

3.5/5 Stars

WHAT IT'S ABOUT:

Searching for a safer habitat, the prehistoric Crood family discovers an idyllic, walled-in paradise that meets all of its needs. Unfortunately, they must also learn to live with the Bettermans - a family that's a couple of steps above the Croods on the evolutionary ladder. As tensions between the new neighbors start to rise, a new threat soon propels both clans on an epic adventure that forces them to embrace their differences, draw strength from one another, and survive together.

WHAT THE CRITICS THOUGHT:

[A] raucous, nakedly commercial but also wickedly funny sequel. - Kevin Maher, Times (UK)

A new age? Not really, but this sequel does feel like a rung up on the evolutionary ladder from 2013's The Croods. - Cath Clarke, Guardian

For all that empowerment one can't help but yearn for the sexist tropes and superior caveman jokes of The Flintstones. - Tara Brady, Irish Times

In defiance of this vague sense of pointlessness, The Croods: A New Age manages to feel like a genuine creative endeavour and not a last resort. - Clarisse Loughrey, Independent (UK)
