Ice age 4: Continental drift is the next one in the series. Not that there is really that much ice left but science isn’t really the strong point of this series anyway.
The third one of the set was my favourite so far and unfortunately I didn’t think this one was quite as good. Now don’t get me wrong. I laughed my head off at various points, especially when those little creatures you see riding on manny’s back appeared. They were pure awesomeness.
I also really liked the cast. They had the actor who plays both Tyrion Lannister in game of thrones and Trumpkin in Prince Caspian as Captain Gut, Peter Dinklage, and he’s fast becoming a favourite actor of mine.
On top of that there is Wanda sykes, who also plays they skunk in over the hedge. She’s Sid’s granny in this and does a perfect job. And I can’t forget Nick Frost, J Lo and Seann William Scott.
The plot was frankly ridiculous and one more step far fetched than even ice age 3 was but it didn’t seem to matter. It was funny and funny was what they were aiming for.
I have absolutely no idea how they would follow it up with another film but I thought the same thing after the second and third so I’m not going to say it’s impossible. The film will definitely be added to my to buy list and if they do somehow make a fifth I’ll be going to see it at the cinema for sure.
