Ice Age: Continental Drift Reviews

April 11, 2019
Just sort of sits on the screen, going through the motions for 90 minutes or so. It's neither good nor bad and, unless you are under the age of 8, you'll likely forget it by the time you get home.

This is the low-temperature family romp that Happy Feet 2 should have been.

[Ice Age 4] is fun, whacky and snappy entertainment from a madcap cast of characters that's not too scary (even in 3D) for the littlies to enjoy, and with just enough funny lines to keep their parents entertained.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

There have been far worse children's films than Ice Age: Continental Drift, even this year, but few that make me so depressed about Hollywood's utter contempt for young moviegoers.

[Teaches] the children of the world all the clichs that they will rapidly come to despise over the course of the following decades.

The difference between mild endorsement and a dismissive "ehh" technically isn't part of the movie. It's the 5-minute short subject preceding Continental Drift, a wordless gem titled The Longest Daycare starring Maggie Simpson.

moves quickly, is well directed, and from time to time achieves some real suspense. If it also shows how the franchise is wearing a little thin, it also shows why it has lasted this long.

Let's make this one extinct.

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

... worthless junk, just like the three worthless movies that came before it.
July 28, 2012
The "Ice Age" franchise runs out of steam with a narratively inert example of animated fluff.

Contains more than enough high energy hi-jinks to keep distractible kiddies entertained.

Kids will love this film and parents won't be bored for a minute.

Fossilized in a syrupy, always-stick-by-your-family-and-friends formula. Scrat provides the only constant humour. The surrealism and manic slapstick that animation can do so well are dwarfed by adventures with pirates and a clichd teen-fitting-in story.
