Movie Review

Ice Age 3

Compiled by Tawsif Saleheen

ICE Age 3 was a disappointment. The movie has its usual dints of good animation and lacklustre humor, which only the kids would enjoy. But a tired plotline and boring montage makes the flick somewhat of a struggle to watch in the end. This is how the story goes.

Manny the woolly mammoth Ellie (the other woolly mammoth) has managed to get pregnant, and they are waiting for their child to arrive. Meanwhile, Diego the saber-toothed tiger is suffering from existential angst and set to wander off on his own.

All this changes when Sid the sloth discovers some dinosaur eggs in a deep cave and takes on a mothering role when the eggs hatch. But soon the kids' real dino-mother shows up roaring and takes her babies, and Sid, down to a hidden underground land where dinos still roam. At which point Manny, Ellie, Diego et al set off to rescue Sid. Adventures and sporadic hilarity ensue, especially when a heroic weasel named Buck shows up. The plot gathers a little bit more momentum since then, but not enough to keep you thoroughly entertained. On a positive note, co-directors Carlos Saldanha and Mike Thurmeier move the film along at a brisk pace with an ideal running time of 87 minutes.
