opens assiduously with a rather envisioning take on insulation. but after a while it's snatched by a growing apprehension it doesn't have enough ideas to differentiate itself as an 'ice age' ornament. it's eagerly-arranged and admittedly funny, yet the franchise needs the moxie for a more serious fettle.

Changing the entire narrative from land to sea, and placing Manny and the crew in a completely out-of-the-norm environment is the best and most refreshingly different thing about (this), the fourth Ice Age movie. But you do kind of have to admit as the series progresses, that it is becoming increasingly reliant on it's own personal humor and slapstick. And that without Scrat's world-changing antics the series would have already died with the last installment.

Entertaining, but not so much as before

Definitely not as good as the previous three films but it still has charm.

Ice Age: Continental Drift sinks the franchise to a lower point, proving that not even good animation, charm and a talented voice cast can do much about a poorly written story.

the film lost its original charm

Maybe it was my low expectations but I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. Admittedly there's nothing special about the story but the characters are a lot of fun and what is there is well executed.

They just keep making too many sequels, it gets old after the first few.

Meh, is all I have to say about it

Now stop making sequels

Despite it's story being tiresome and having underdeveloped characters, "Ice Age: Continental Drift" has some decent animation and some likable characters that makes up for it.

Ice Age: Continental Drift may not be a strictly necessary sequel but it still boasts enough of what hardcore fans of Fox's cash grab franchise have come to expect. Its story may not be terribly original and some of the humour in the main plot kinda sucks. Hell, the only reason Nicki Minaj and Drake are in it are so that they can lure tweens and young teens into seeing the movie. They don't even have a lot of lines. Yet Fox decides to put them in the "Starring" category in the posters and marketing over Peter Dinklage, Nick Frost and Aziz Ansari. The redeeming qualities are, as usual, the bright visually appealing animation and the humorous Looney Tunes-type Scrat subplot. I'm telling you, that sabre-toothed squirrel is the one thing keeping audiences who don't care about the actual plot sane throughout. That and the Simpsons short film that preceded the movie. I wouldn't be surprised if I found out the only reason this animated movie made more money than Madagascar 3, which I very much enjoyed, was because of a short film whch everyone considered better than the actual film. It still had a few entertaining sequences and Dinklage's little pirate shanty was a bit decent but with this movie, the quality of the franch-ice (ah, damn it, I did it again) slowly begins declining. Still better than Collision Course, that was when people truly had enough.

That's the sequel of the franchise, that altough it was entertaining enough, starts to show sines of uncreativity.

It was funny, adventurous, and the story twist of the continental drift story was amazing. It was better than its three predecessors.

OK, I enjoyed the first and third Ice Ages, but I did not really care for the second one, but this? Oh, my gosh, IT'S THE SECOND MOVIE ALL OVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! This installment to the 'Ice Age' Franchise was a very remarkable experience for me, in which I found some really important messages being conveyed to the audience. It was silly, funny, unique & beautifully presented.
Therefore, I think this animation is an ideal choice not only for entertainment, but also to educate people about the importance of family and looking out for each other.

Ice Age 4 offers the same with some nice animation, but a story and characters that have been done in other films (Heck,mostly from their own!)
The Burning Medallion of badness has been given.

4/16/2017 (2): Ok at best. Scrat provided the only laughs in the flick.
April 9, 2017

February 23, 2017

February 9, 2017
