LAND BEFORE TIME III: THE TIME OF THE GREAT GIVING (Direct -to-Video Release USA 1995)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Land Before Time III: The Time of the Great Giving appeals to the young child audience only but makes the mistake of trying to become a child/adult share. Unfortunately, this particular Land Before Time tries to send messages through its story that are vital to know (like the importance of not being angry), but the messages are not well enough done for them to stick with the child due to poor organization. The child is left with a few scraps of film that border on ‘silly’ to the point of comedy. The bright side of this is that it is a cute film and many children who are involved in the series may want to watch it despite the quality of its story.
