Ice Age: Collision Course (Movie Review)

By: Matt Suzara

The film starts with Scrat once again chasing his beloved acorn, which launches him to outer space and creates a killer asteroid in the process. Meanwhile, Manny and Ellie (Ray Romano and Queen Latifah) are having a hard time to accept the fact that their daughter Peaches (Keke Palmer) is getting married to a cool and high-spirited mammoth named Julian (Adam Devine). More problems come into play when the huge asteroid rapidly enters the Earth. Soon, Manny and the rest of his friends must find a plan to stop the destruction from happening and once again save the day. 

The fifth entry to this colorful franchise battles against Alice Through the Looking Glass this week and aim to haul families to the cinemas starting Wednesday. Yes, I've enjoyed Ice Age films with Sid and his wacky gang creating a lot of laughs through the years. However, Collision Course makes me feel old as I find myself a bit bored and can't seem to find the intensity like the previous installments have produced. I am looking for the same formula it had that made me giggle and laugh at the jokes and animation, but now I think that they have already run off with new ideas this time around. 

There are still fun moments and family values that can be learned in the film. The whole crew are adorable in their own way, and the voice cast fuels each character to make them lively and charming. As always, Scrat steals some of the spotlight with his comedy antics, and now he reach the outer space with his acorn. His segments provided some of the good laughs and was perfectly on cue in delivering his moments.

Overall, Ice Age: Collision Course still looks decent with its animation. It just fell short in style and producing something different to give a fresh air to this franchise. I hope that they do well in the box-office or else this might be their last hurrah.
