Itís the 4th time now that Sid, Diego and Manny found themselves in a world-changing adventure, but AniMat seems to find them on thin ice.

@Billy Actually they haven't said whether or not their's going to be an Ice Age 5, their just not working on one at the moment. I seriously doubt after their next 3 movies, their just going to stop working! (Not that I want an Ice Age 5, I'm just saying...)

Well at least on the bright side there will be no Ice Age 5 instead we will get Epic,Rio 2, and a CGI adaptation on the Peanuts cartoons thank god.

Harsh scores AniMat. I have to say that I am the complete opposite of you, in most cases. First off this movie gave me no indication that it was taking from Ice Age 2 at all. Second I can see what you say about the story but it's not that bad. And third the characters are what make this movie and the franchise. It would be cool though to see a show about Scratt.

It IS a copy of Ice Age 2, glad I'm not the only one who noticed that. But the movie is still decent enough for me to want it as a Christmas present. PLEASE tell me there's not going to be a fifth one where Diego and Shira reproduce. If there has to be a worst entry in the Ice Age franchise, it has to be the Christmas special, since there was no Christmas during the Ice Age, because Jesus was not born yet.

I could say that Ice Age 3 is the best of the sequels, even if it was super stupid, i had fun with that film, Ice Age 2 was pretty dull and annoying, but decent, but this one is the worst of the franchise thanks for being a copy of the 2nd one, is not bad, but not so good, is just ok, a 6/10.
I think that this film is much, much better than Hotel Transylvania.

Seeing as they're have the complete genomes of many Ice Age animals and the way science is progressing these days, I sense a live-action adaptation in the future. Be afraid, be vary vary afraid.

Don't worry folks, this is the last Ice Age movie we will see in probably forever. Next Blue Sky is going to realease a film called "Epic" and then (gulp) "Rio 2". I think the reason why Fox is attacking everyone is because they hardly know how to make a decent animated film so the make a political debate about the "evil" qualities just to bring down their rivals. Ain't going to work Fox.

Personally, I didn't find "Ice Age 4" that bad. Sure it isn't perfect, but it doesn't have to be. It's a fun family flick with some good comedy, good animation and a cool and sometimes menacing villian with the voice of Peter Dinklage. But I respect your opinion too, AniMat.

I'm pretty much done with Ice Age. I really liked the first one when it came out, the second was boring, and the third one, while is was on the stupid side, I did enjoy the idea of dinosaurs in the movie. When I first heard about this one, the first thing that went through my head was, "REALL!" But then when I heard there PIRATES in an movie that takes place where pirates never even existed, I pretty much said, "I'm DONE!"

@Animat What do you think of the songs that are used in this film?
Date And Time: 2012-07-22 01:08:47Comment:
@Chris Etrata: Oh man, I'd rather not think about it. I dread to see the day where I need to think of a background music for a review where I give that movie a 2/10 or lower... Not because of choosing the music, but to see a movie horrible enough to earn that score!

@Niel Dunsmore-epic dosen't look AS promising as other blue sky films.all i can say is,blue sky,don't dissapoint me like you did with ice age 2.

Sorry, I hit the enter button on accident. Anyway, Animat, I know there were not many songs in this film but what do you think of the 3 that were used here? Also, what background music would you play if you give a film a score of 2/10,1/10, or 0/10?

i wonder what will happen if don bluth and gary goldman worked on ice age...
Date And Time: 2012-07-21 17:45:03Comment:
If Don Bluth would take Ice Age... Or Diego and Sid dies in the first one and Manny give the baby back to his family or just a very weird movie with nice animation. Well maybe more weird of what it is already. I don't know I'm just guessing.

@trey: Sorry, but I'll pass on the Oogieloves thing for 2 reasons: 1. It's not an animated film and 2. I'm still having a hard time that a movie like that will be in theatres actually exists. @Neil Dunsmore: Because of this film, I'm never trusting another trailer ever again. All I'm saying about Epic is that we'll have to wait and see...

@Belle- I heard a rumor that Blu Sky's become too egotistical when it comes to this series to the point where they might just make a fifth one. Though, honestly, their next upcoming film, Epic, despite its pretentious title, really does look like it could very well be their best work.

i LOVED the first one,didnt enjoy the 2nd one much,3 was ok and 4 was better than 2 and 3,but not AS good as the first one.
Date And Time: 2012-07-21 14:18:57Comment:
I've only seen the first three Ice Age movies, and you're right, the second one wasn't the best one. I'm glad I didn't see this. Blue Sky needs to make more original movies, like "Horton Hears a Who." I'm pretty sure after this installment there will be no more Ice Age movies. Although I do believe Scrat should have his own movie/TV show. He's possibly the best character in the franchise anyway.

The best way to describe what you described about Peaches is your avrege sterio typicle tenn.I really thought she whould be an intresting character with more screen time then the 3rd movie.Also in a way she kinnda of reminds me of Marida from Brave(in a way).

I love the first movie, the sequels we're okay but they don't top the original in my opinion.

I actually predicted and got right on many points on what you would say. Ice Age 4 was lame and the worst of all ice age sequels (Ice age 1 was the best of all ice age films.) It was quantity over quality for characters, the pirates were useless, animation is the same as the previous films, the plot was mainly borrowed from Ice age 2, and old characters have not changed, or changed for the worse. I though Shira, Diego's love interest, her situation is too much like Diego's from the first film. The Longest Daycare was the best part but the film itself exists just to make a buck. Scrat is the nes part of this film and Blue Sky should do a film or show JUST on scrat. Great Review.

can you review the oogieloves a big ballon adventure its going to suck but just revew the trailer please!also i think blue sky is ending it because look at the trailer to leaf man its legend of the gardens and avatar combined so it looks good i think blue sky well improve like with rio.

Mat, I think you nailed the biggest problem with the Ice Age sequels/franchise. The new characters aren't not interesting and for the most part annoying. The Toy Story sequels were able to make new interesting characters in the franchise like Jessie, Lotso, and Ken. I don't get that with any of the new characters in the Ice Age sequels except for maybe Buck in the third one. Simon Pegg is always amusing and he is the only bright spot in Ice Age 3. I don't care about Ellie and the Possums, who are really annoying imo.
