Ice Age: Continental Drift Review
Ice Age 4, are they ever going to stop making these movies? Do I care? Of course I don’t care if Blue Sky Studios ever stops making these movies because I love each and every one of them.
The trio – Manny, Diego, and Sid find themselves battling mother nature again to stay connected to their families. However, along their journey this time they encounter Pirates! In Ice Age 4 we’re introduced to a crew misfits with bad intentions. Similar to the trio (Manny, Diego, and Sid) the pirates have their own quarks, leaders, and skilled players.
“Surrender your ship or face my fury!
Sid: “Or face your furry what?”
“Not furry, fury!”
The pirates leader Captain Gutt and second in command Shira are the two most interesting new pirates. Captain Gutt is a strong and determined leader like Manny. Shire is a fierce but gentle female saber tooth tiger like Diego, which creates some interesting tension as they seem attracted to one another but must toe the line of loyal friend or foe.
As with most Ice Age movies the plot is very linear and there aren’t many surprises.
What you can expect though, is many laughs along the way. Ice Age never disappoints in the comedy realm. The 3D animation was fluid and fun. It wasn’t too overdone and it added a little punch to the action scenes without being distracting.
The voice talent was outstanding. Jennifer Lopez was pretty good but I would have been find without her. The new voice addition that I was very excited and impressed with was Peter Dinklage who voiced Captain Gutt. I used to be a big Game of Thrones fan so naturally I really enjoyed Peter’s performance.
Ice Age: Continental Drift is a great family movie. If you’ve enjoyed any of the other Ice Age movies then you’re sure to enjoy this one as well.
