Nope nope nope nope nope nope. This franchise need to stop.
I was once a fan of the Ice Age franchises, I really liked the first two movies because it has solid story, good chemistry, good score, well put animation. Hilarious and noble.
But no, in this movie, the plot is very WTF, have no soul, one-liners fell flat and even the Scrat segments felt old. The story was simpleton at best with the ending pretty much predictable stuff. Even the emotional twist near the end didn’t affect me. Sadly, after fifteen years, the formula has run dry. The film comes out uninspired even generic at best.
Anyway, what it really comes down to is whether you like the humor and the characters. For me personally, half the jokes were somewhat funny, the other half not at all, and maybe two made me laugh internally. Most of the main characters annoy me (I wish Crash and Eddy had disappeared 10 movies ago), but I sort of liked the new mammoth Julian. He was kind.
That’s it, I’m done.
Scrat’s epic pursuit of the elusive acorn catapults him into the universe where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the Ice Age World. To save themselves, Sid, Manny, Diego, and the rest of the herd must leave their home and embark on a quest full of comedy and adventure, traveling to exotic new lands and encountering a host of colorful new characters.
