OUR RATING: ★★☆☆☆
Story: Animated sequel and the fifth in the Ice Age film series and the story follows Scrat’s epic pursuit of his elusive acorn which catapults him outside of Earth, where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the planet.
To save themselves from peril, Manny, Sid, Diego (Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary), and the rest of the herd leave their home and embark on a quest full of laughter and adventure while traveling and on their journey, they discover an exotic place, led by its spiritual leader Shangri Llama (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), and encountering a host of colorful new characters as well as a new enemy who is a brother to one of their old foes.
Verdict: I can’t believe that this franchise is still going, and it’s such a great example of something that should have been let go a long time ago. However, here we are with another sequel and sadly there’s still nothing here that makes it feel different or fresh. I loved the first one and even enjoyed the second one, but it really needs to be put to bed. The kindest thing to say about this sequel is that little children might get some joy out of it!
