Ice Age: Continental Drift

Critics 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

  • ...everything I liked about the original movie has been worn down.

  • Yes, this is the part where I outsource my critical role to my children. If you are the kind of person who (quite understandably) abhors this particular gimmick, you may wish to stop reading now.

  • The best bits are basic and all but voiceless: those Scrat-intensive set pieces, still inspiredly squirrelly if much too far apart.

  • These films are generally good at being good enough, and the fourth installment, Ice Age: Continental Drift, doesn't deviate from that modest tradition.

  • In the end, this latest "Ice Age" movie is about as surprising and unpredictable as a glacier. And not much more fun.

  • Whenever I watch an "Ice Age" movie, I understand how my mother felt whenever I zoned out in front of the television after school.

    It's time they have to stop making these kinds of movies but leave Scrat behind because Scrat deserves all the attention than the rest of the movie.

    While it improves slightly above the third in the series, Ice Age: Continental Drift is just as underwhelming as the other Ice Ages. The daughter-father conflict is dull and cliché and Blue Sky stuffs the film with annoying pop star voices (even if Nicki Minaj can be funny once in a while). The animation is expectedly spectacular and Scrat still steals the show. The fourth film still proves, however, that these prehistoric creatures have run their course. Overall Rating: 47

    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.

    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.
