Ice Age: Continental Drift: Not Quite As Cool As Expected

Subscribe Ray Romano

Ice Age: Continental Drift is the fourth instalment of the prehistoric children's animated adventures, and as it drifts up to the box office, the critical reception thus far have hardly been enough to warm people into going to see it.

On the critical compositor site Metacritic, the film teeters on an unstable overall mark of 50 out of 100, with most reviews coming back as being mixed as the film fails to make much of an impression. Most critics have applauded the movie's durability, with criticism only being found in the film's not-too-complex plot. For example Empire magazine commends the work of the voice actors, but refers to it as the "most undemanding animation out there" and as simply being another "megabucks franchise". Meanwhile the New York Times has applauded its user friendly characterisation, saying that "like its predecessors, is much too friendly to dislike, and its vision of interspecies multiculturalism is generous and appealing".

Entertainment Weekly is also on the fence as to whether to applaud or bemoan the fourth instalment, describing it as a fun film, albeit one where "the laughs are starting to feel prehistoric". However Slant magazine has warned potential parents/guardians to go at their own risk, as the film serves only for the "Duplo Blocks demographic, leaving parents and guardians bored to distraction". The movie, starring Ray Romano and Denis Leary, hits theaters on Friday (July 13, 2012).
