“Better than the first: constant visual invention, exceptional detail, excellent voiceover talent, and a moving and touching portrayal of the fundamental bonds between family and community. – Movie Moon.

“It might not be as innovative as the first one, but it’s essentially captivating, if a bit chaotic, fun for the kids, and doesn’t need to be anything else.” – Associated press.

“Gone are the days when calling a movie a hobby seemed like a curse or a low compliment. Today, that seems to be an essential thing. – New York Magazine.

“It’s a weird movie, just for the weird stuff, but it’s also an immersive entertainment experience wherever you watch.” – The film school rejects.

“The film vibrates with visual energy – the plants are a box of Pandora surprises and the hybrid animals are inspired – but this rich eye candy makes the staged lightness even more apparent. – The Straits Times.

“Amid this confusion over a family of prehistoric ‘Flinstones’ imitations lies brilliantly animated magic that speaks of the power of Oneness even when it is forced to separate. Very good for a cartoon, especially during a pandemic. – ABC News.
