Ice Age 4 – Continental Drift (2012) Film Review

How many times has this story been told? There is a teenage daughter who wants to break free and start to find her independence. There is an over-protective father who wants to keep her safe, but finds that his behaviour drives her away. It could be Hotel Transylvania, or any of another heap of films.

Clearly, I am not the key demographic for this film, so it probably doesn’t matter that I was bored. No amount of slapstick, witty commentary or awesome pirate characters could make up for my boredom. I seem to recall seeing the first Ice Age many years ago and thought it was a fairly decent kids film. Now, it has well and truly jumped the shark. But the sirens were pretty cool.
