The Ice Age franchise has certainly come a long way since the first movie back in 2002. Since then the cast has expanded with every new movie but it is still as entertaining as ever. Thanks to Fox Malaysia, MHB’s Povy, Sandy and myself managed to catch the media preview screening.
Plot outline – 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.
Ok that’s the official plot outline. What is actually is is an entertaining ride and with the expanded cast features scenes in multiple locations unlike the first film. Add in some pirates, a huge dose of comedy, a pinch of romance and family values and you get one heck of an entertaining movie.
Ice Age 4: Continental Drift features the voices of many notable actors including Denis Leary, John Leguizamo, Queen Latifah, Nicki Minaj and Ray Romano.
A light-hearted comedy that is great for unwinding after a day’s work. Highly recommended!
Ice Age 4 opens in Malaysian cinemas on 12 July 2012.
