I love the Ice-Age franchise as does my family, the kids enjoy it fantastically and it leaves them in stitches.
This new addition does exactly that once more, however I feel this movie is lacking something but I don't know what, maybe it's just the thought that the franchise is slowly losing course and becoming it shouldn't be but none the less it's still entertaining!
Scrat, Manny, Sid and Diego are still amazing and touching characters, they have always been the trademark of the film and I'm glad they stayed with these characters for the fourth film. The story is cliche once more but it doesnt matter because this is a well made animated movie.
I'm just not sure what else they can do with this franchise as ideas are now becoming slim, this will lead to a meltdown if done wrong for future releases, as pirates that is probably the lowest of the ideas so I'm hoping the makers have something up there sleeves to entertain us with in the next installment.
A still great family franchise, family movie, still provides unforgettable characters and emotion. A must watch for any youngster and many adults alike.
