Director: Steve Martino, Michael Thurmeier
Synopsis: A continental cataclysm triggers the greatest adventure of all for Manny, Diego and Sid.
Releasing: July 27
Average Rating: 4/10
Roger Ebert: The characters are manic and idiotic, the dialogues are rat-a-tat chatter, the action is entirely at the service of the 3-D, and the movie depends solely on bright colours, lots of noise and a few songs in between the whiplash moments.
Claudia Puig: This fourth installment featuring the animated, prehistoric critters is aimless and derivative. While the first Ice Age movie in 2002 was inventive and cute, there’s far too little here that’s fresh.
Christy Lemire: The filmmakers stuff the film to a manic degree, albeit with increasingly textured animation.
Los Angeles Times
Betsy Sharkey : The dialogues are sometimes too sluggish and definitely too preachy, the ending is a little too sappy, yet somehow this strange collection of prehistoric critters and their completely illogical life are consistently likable, if not quite lovable.
