The Croods (Empire On-Demand Review)

TheCroodsSquareThe Croods (2013), Netflix

In DreamWorks’ hit computer-animated comedy about Neanderthal-type cave dwellers, Nicolas Cage steals the show as the voice of Grug, the over-protective father whose motto is “Never not be afraid.” But the real treat is the inspired creature design, which eschews Ice Age-era woolly mammoths and saber-tooth tigers in favor of a colorful crypto-zoological menagerie of creatures that never were.

Empire rating: ★★★★
