For the 13 months between the day he escaped from prison and the night he lay dying in an alley, he robbed banks. It was his lifetime.

"Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" is the best of the three films about our friends in the interspecies herd of plucky prehistoric heroes. And it involves some of the best use of 3-D I've seen in an animated feature.
