Ten years after the release of the original Ice Age, the film’s fourth installment was still able to deliver a hard core family flick that will capture the heart of its young viewers. Ice Age 4: Continental Drift sees the gang charming their way to the audience with their adventures and misadventures to the high seas. Our three heroes, Manny the mammoth (Ray Romano), Diego the sabre-toothed tiger (Denis Leary) and Sid the sloth ( John Leguizamo) were separated from their families and got stuck in an ice raft with Sid’s grandmother (Wanda Sykes.)
As the gang drifts further away from their home, they met a gang of pirates led by Captain Gutt, an orangutan who’s out to bring chaos and revenge along with his crew. Determined to be with his wife and daughter again, Manny led the action-packed showdown between our charming heroes and the pirates.
This fourth installment of the film was co-directed by Steve Martino and Mike Thurmeier who directed the third one. With its very cliché plot line, the teamwork of Martino and Thurmeier was able to transformed it into something that both adult and children would thoroughly enjoy. I’m not a really big fan of 3-D but I just really dig it this time. It’s fun and engaging and the humour’s just have the right balance. Ice Age 4 soars higher as they deliver a family film that will not only entertain its audience but will teach us some real lessons in life. It’s definitely a must-see!

“I made a conscious decision to try to tone down the sexiness, I want people—especially young girls—to know that in life, nothing is going to be based on sex appeal. You’ve got to have something else to go with that.” -Nicki
