Ice Age: Collision Course Review - Manny, Diego, Sid, Ellie, Crash, Eddie, Shira, Peaches, Julian and once again joined by Buck are up for another adventure across the icy world of Ice Age.
The beloved or annoying (which ever way it may appeal to you), Scrat once again sets upon a journey, this time into the outer space to catch his elusive acorn and triggers a cosmic events that cause a meteor to head strait to Earth. Buck figures out a way to avoid the meteor from destroying the planet and together with the herd head towards a safer location. As usual, they are faced with loads of funny circumstances and situations while also learn few lesson on their own.
There is no doubt that Ice Age were exciting in the beginning with the idea of difference species bonding and becoming friends. The voice consist of really talented actors, namely Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Queen Latifah and later joined by even more new comers. The story were also fresh at the start of the series but too much of a good thing when its actually just repeated jokes and plot can get pretty tiring after a while. The same goes for the latest offering by our once favourite pack. There is still some funny moments but its not as laugh out loud as it used to be.
When Ice Age first came out, I was excited, then 2nd, 3rd and 4th and now the 5th. We kept getting cheated about the End Ice Age but somehow these odd pack managed to survive each time. They also keep adding the members until some of the original characters have lost their charm. Take Scrat for example…move on to other things than the acorn please. Have you not noticed all the trouble you have to go thru just to get that stupid nut you nut. Meanwhile, Manny is once again faced with dilemma when Peaches plan to get married and move away from him and Ellie. Diego is doing fine with his new found love, Shira except that they are having trouble trying to start a family and Sid still can’t find a life mate. All of them are trying to make it thru the Ice Age. Sounds familiar? Well…after 5th flick, its bound to happen so enough is enough. Perhaps we can let these animals live their lives without having to make it go up to Ice Age 10 maybe ey?
