Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Ice Age: Continental Drift 3D has moments of charm and witty slapstick, but it often seems content to recycle ideas from the previous films.


Movie Info

Scrat's nutty pursuit of the cursed acorn, which he's been after since the dawn of time, has world-changing consequences - a continental cataclysm that triggers the greatest adventure of all for Manny, Diego and Sid. In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny, and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Ice Age: Continental Drift

All Critics (132) | Top Critics (27)

The swashbuckling stuff is boisterous, if dated, and proves far more engaging than a tedious sub-plot involving Manny's rebellious teenage daughter.

Movie Talk

The first "Ice Age" is still the best, but as fabricated and Saturday morning as this installment is, it's still an accomplished bit of animated filmmaking.

Movie Metropolis

Here the franchise that recycles other kids' movies recycles itself.

Time to Play Magazine

The beautiful animation and wonderful character design continue to impress, but the seafaring action is sunk by sub-sitcom-level lessons about family and friendship.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Apparently Fox are making a fifth, and people wonder what's pushing originality out of Hollywood.

Fan The Fire

This is simply the case of a series that has fully run its course without anywhere left to go.

Audience Reviews for Ice Age: Continental Drift

Sure, the creator's are struggling more and more with adding even more supposedly quirky characters, when the first film worked so great with just four. The attempts to copy current youth culture are also quite annoying. But you know what? Some of the jokes and ideas are still really funny and the film jumps from action sequence to action sequence in really brilliantly looking animation, you just can't dislike it.

Well, this was cute, but not anywhere near as good as the first two. It had some really funny chuckle moments, but they were far and few between. Enough now. I will not be so anxious to watch another if they continue...

Funny, cute, but very forgettable.
Plus, I literally lost count if this is the 4th Ice Age or 5th. How many are there? Are they gonna continue to kill a dying franchise?
Regardless, I had a good time, not great. Animation's superb though.
