Sid is united with his family who, it turns out, just wanted to leave his granny with him and disappear. The granny, voice of Wanda Sykes, brings in fine humor. The pack, in their attempt to reunite Manny with his family, runs into evil Captain Gutt, the reigning pirate of the frozen waters. They venture off with his boat after beating his crew, only to run into him again. Here starts a friendship between Diego and Shira. Captain Gutt in a desperate attempt to get even with Manny holds Peaches hostage. Manny and the entire pack, including Granny, fight back with gusto.
The overall pace and adventure of The Continental Drift is at par with the previous versions, it's non-stop adventure with funny scenes that kids will enjoy. However, it feels like more of the same over and over again. There isn't much depth of content, no new ideas, no scintillating graphics, and no meaningful development of characters.
That being said, the movie is still great fun for the entire family. It's adventurous, funny, and definitely worth a watch.
The video itself is wonderful from a technical standpoint. The colors are saturated, the detail in the fur and environment is sharp and interesting. While few and far between, the blacks showcase detail and texture that will prove to be interesting and engaging.
The audio features a DTS-HD Master Audio and takes advantage of a wide dynamic range that while not blowing you out of your chair loud, will do nice to differentiate standard dialogue. The music found throughout the film is integral, yet never gets in the way of the dialogue which remains clear and understandable no matter what happens. For those with a powerful subwoofer, the movie will provide ample opportunities to exercise it.
In total, this movie was fun, playful, and a great for the family. It never goes very deep, the characters aren't the most dynamic, but it is the perfect movie to watch when looking for a quiet and enjoyable experience.
Fun,fun,fun for any age.
Now I'll buy the Ice Age: Daw to the Dinosaurs 3D. To bad they don't make it the first one ( Ice Age) on 3D.
If you are looking for in your face 3D movie this is a must own for your collection, trust me.
The plot: Sid, Manny and Diego are definitely in for the ride of their lives when they met a set of pirates, and Diego gets a girlfriend (voiced by J-Lo!).
If you liked Pirates of the Carribean and if you love the Ice Age movies, you'll love Ice Age 4: Continental Drift!
Unless the squirrel is on screen, “Ice Age: Continental Drift” has its audience drifting in and out of boredom. Really, the squirrel is the only redeeming character of this film. To be totally honest, judging by the highly misleading cover image of the film, we all thought this entire movie was focused on the squirrel. But this is far from the case. Instead, the movie focuses on a slew of incessant squawking from, but not limited to, a stereotypical pack of jock-mammoths (was Niki Minaj’s character even necessary?) and a grandma sloth with a voice grating enough to grenade your eardrum. Not including the squirrel in every second of the movie was the creators’ first and greatest mistake. The squirrel has an affirmative position in movie history, alongside Orson Welles and Denzel Washington, not only because of his unparalleled talent, but because of the depth of his character.
The squirrel is the epitomization of mankind’s passions and uninhibited desires. Nuts are both his conquest and his vice; his nourishment and ruination. With otherworldly persistence, he will go to the ends of the earth for an acorn, figuratively and literally, falling from the earth’s crust to the core to reach it. His passion culminates in the final scene of the film (SPOILER ALERT) when after his heroes journey he finally reaches Scratlantis. Aristcratle, the wise, Grecian-esque philosopher, challenges the squirrel to be “more than a rodent,” but his request sees no end. The squirrel tornadoes through the abundance of nuts on the island, destroying the seemingly civilized society based on wisdom and thought.Read more ›
