Product Description

Amazon.ca

The revisionist version of natural history offered up in the Ice Age movies gets yet another twist in the fourth installment, 10 years after Manny the woolly mammoth, Diego the saber-toothed tiger, Sid the sloth, and Scrat the squirrel made their chilly debut to hot box-office receipts. The lessons of family and loyalty in Continental Drift may seem a little warmed over, but the creatively constructed laughs, amusing voice characterizations, and inventive CGI animation are reason enough to keep the series viable for kids to giggle about and grownups to belly laugh over--sometimes for exactly the same reasons. Once again, acorn-addicted Scrat is the cause of some pretty important behind-the-scenes machinations. His dialogue-free antics also serve as a stand-alone subplot that could easily be a very clever short film of its own. This time the weasely rodent's addled obsession with the fruit of the oak is revealed as the cause of the formation of the world's continents as we now know them. He sets the story--and planet Earth--in motion while pursuing a little nut in a hyperactive prologue that causes underground rifts that in turn form the famous shapes of Australia, Africa, North America, and the outline of Italy (which it turns out is shaped like a boot for a very good reason). Above ground this means more global chaos for the herd of animals we've come to know so well. All the familiar voices reprise their wonderful roles as fissures in earth and ice separate Manny (Ray Romano) from his woolly wife Ellie (Queen Latifah) and boy-crazy teenager Peaches (Keke Palmer). With a killer continental shelf bearing down on them, mother and daughter lead the madcap pack of animal characters toward a safe meeting place while Manny, Diego (Denis Leary), Sid (John Leguizamo), and Sid's crazy granny (Wanda Sykes) drift away on an iceberg schooner into a newly vast open ocean. While floating into oblivion, the mismatched pack encounters a band of animal pirates piloting another slab of ship-shaped ice, captained by a crazed baboon named Gutt (Peter Dinklage), who's bent on resentment-based revenge. The motley crew provides a plethora of comic encounters and a new raft of excellent voice actors. Running a close second to Dinklage in ingenious casting is Jennifer Lopez as Shira, a sultry tiger who, don't cha know, ends up on the good ship and falling for Diego in the end. The adventures of both the land- and sea-based creatures are full of clever gags and densely constructed set pieces that may not be quite up to Pixar story standards, but are certainly always on the ball and executed with computer-animation acumen that is astonishingly lifelike for such an unreal-looking world. Scrat's misadventures act as interstitial connectors to the parallel heroes' journey stories until they ultimately intersect in a massively scaled finale. Even after all the melting and refreezing, the Ice Age world is still a hot commodity in the animated-franchise business and remains a good investment despite the constancy of global rifts in entertaining family fare. --Ted Fry

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Dec 13 2012
Format: Blu-ray
VIDEO (2D):

Ice Age 4: Continental Drift (2D) arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. I personally prefer 2.40:1 because with my anamorphic lens, the video filled up my entire 12 foot wide screen with no black bars. This transfer is immaculate, with sharp images, and highly dimensional even without 3D glasses. Just look at the finely textured ruffles of Manny's fur, the mossy yellow patina of Gutt's gross-out teeth, the sheen of the ice and the ripples of water — everything is wonderfully realized, with consistent clarity and presence. Colour is immaculately conceived as well — from the punchy foliage greens and sky blues to the fleshy interior of a whale's mouth — and contrast is tight, balancing deep shadows and crisp highlights. (5/5)

AUDIO:

Ice Age 4: Continental Shift 2D comes with DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless track. The audio is an immersive energetic mix. The sonic goodness starts early—the deep rumbling of the earth's crust, rocks compressing and shattering, water spraying, bubbles glug-glugging up out of the depths — and relents only for the quieter, dialogue-centric scenes. The onscreen hijinks and danger are complemented by a huge-sounding orchestral score by Hans Zimmer protege John Powell — composer for the Bourne series — who borrows and bastardizes Beethoven's 9th Symphony to surprisingly decent effect. The voice acting throughout is clear and expressive, balanced perfectly among the numerous other noises. The choices of Ray Romano, Ally Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Jennifer Lopez and Queen Latifah as voice for Manny, Meghan, Sid, Diego, Shira, and Ellie, are simply priceless. Did you recognize the voice of Steffie as that of Nicki Minaj? (4.

(5/5)

VIDEO (3D):

Ice Age 4: Continental Drift (3D) arrives at blu ray with MVC @ 33 mbps encode. The image is just as impressive. The picture is immersive, making great use of both depth and projection. There are a few pop-out-and-jab-you-in-the-eye moments — with fish-bone swords darting out of the screen or Gutt's long face looming towards us — but these feel more integrated than gimmicky. Clarity holds up remarkably well. Colours are just as vibrant, maybe just slightly dimmer when one compares with the 2D version. (5/5)

AUDIO:

Both 3D and 2D versions have the same DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless track. The audio is an immersive energetic mix. The sonic goodness starts early — the deep rumbling of the earth's crust, rocks compressing and shattering, water spraying, bubbles glug-glugging up out of the depths — and relents only for the quieter, dialogue-centric scenes.

We ordered this because we liked the other movies of this series. We have watched it at least twice since we bought it and both times have enjoyed it. We have now another fun animated movie for our DVD library, but I wouldn't recommend buying it unless it's about $17 because we think that NO movie is worth paying much more than that. If you liked the first couple of this series, you might like this one too.

This film is the exception to the rule that sequels fail.

There is an engaging story against an improbable backdrop of continental drift and roving pirates. The characters, hilariously anthropomorphized, are worth our caring. Familiar characters take on novel problems except in one case (our favorite squirrel still is seeking the perfect acorn). New characters, especially the pirates, headed by an orangutan captain, _are_ the problems.

Ray Romano, Denis Leary, Queen Latifah, Patrick Stewart, and Peter Dinklage are lead voices.

Co-director Mike Thurmeier worked on some of the earlier Ice Age films.

Having said all that, I think I'll watch it again!

I'll admit, I only bought it for the 3D, which was great! The film itself is pretty entertaining though, although I hear this isn't the best one in the series. Worth it for the 3D experience though.

Cute and funny movie. Predicable, but with a great new character - Sid's granny.
I have only seen this movie and the original Ice Age in this series, but plan to watch the rest soon.
