Ice Age

Critics Consensus

Even though Ice Age is treading over the same grounds as Monsters, Inc. and Shrek, it has enough wit and laughs to stand on its own.

    It was entirely great in their own kind of ways. Scrat most likely make it up for me.

    Very dark, metaphoric, and relentless, Ice Age stands as a psychological thriller masquerading as a kid's movie. The kids will love it, the Adults will enjoy it.

    Though it doesn't reach the heights of the best animated fare, and the animation is a bit bland, Ice Age is still mostly charming, and very funny with some clever jokes and great vocal performances. Overall Rating: 70

    I gotta say when this first came out, I didn't care for it at all. Everyone else seems to enjoy it, but I find it kind of boring and the animation just not that great compared to other movies. Rewatching it, I found not much has changed in my opinion. The characters are still borderline boring, the animation weak, and the story is pretty weak also. About some ice age misfits trying to save a human infant and all the mishaps that get in the way on their adventure. The voices are "meh, just ok" as Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, and Denis Leary lead the cast. The one saving grace for the franchise is Scrat. He's half rat, and half squirrel, and doesn't talk. He just makes weird noises, and his only goal in life is to get an acorn. He is pretty darn funny, and in my opinion the sole reason to watch this cartoon. Now I have yet to watch part 2, but I did see part 3 in the theater and thought it was an improvement. Hopefully the series gets better, as this first installment just doesn't hold up to animated standards that have been set by recent franchises like "Shrek" and "Madagascar." Still though, kids will love it(Grant dug it!), and with movies like this, that is all that really matters.
