Run time: 89 mins
The third instalment of the lively animated archaeology adventure.
After Tad accidentally unleashes a curse that endangers the lives of his friends, he sets out on a quest to reverse the curse of the mummy.
For those not in the know, think ‘animated Indiana Jones’, only a goofier main character in Tad who is nevertheless, just as determined, curious and passionate about history. Tad is a great introduction to Indy for youngsters, until they are old enough to enjoy those classic films without having nightmares. It’s definitely more madcap chaos that youngsters will enjoy, and a departure from the standard-issue animated fare, but with DC Super Pets and a a few others on the horizon, it’s hard to see it standing up to the big boys.
But maybe we’ve just have been spoiled by Pixar in both quality and quantity? It would not be implausible to have Tad eventually join the ranks of Woody, Buzz and the Incredibles in our affections if next time he has the greatest adventure of all.
