Ice Age 4: Continental Drift

3

The fourth instalment of this chilly franchise


 

A decade and three sequels since the original Ice Age, the next stage of earth’s natural history sees the gang threatened with separation anxiety on a global scale.

With a tone that swerves between madcap adventure and sitcom domesticity, the saga is starting to resemble a cartoon Lethal Weapon.

The rollicks are revived once the heroes bump into a band of prehistoric pirates, but squirrel scrat – the Buster Keaton of modern animated characters – remains the real star.
