Dir by Michael Thurmeier, Galen Tan Chu
Rating: ***

The Ice Age franchise started in 2002, and has appealed to kids so much that it is still going strong. Ice Age: Collision Course is the fifth in the series. In an earlier film, Scrat, the squirrel, had split the continents apart in the pursuit of that elusive acorn; in the spectacular prologue of this film, Scrat accidentally creates the solar system—and that crazy sequence has to be seen to be believed. Back in the snowy prehistoric age, the audience re-encounters Sid the Sloth (John Leguizamo), Diego and Shira, the sabre-toothed tigers (Denis Leary, Jennifer Lopez), Manny the woolly mammoth (Ray Romano) and his wife, Ellie (Queen Latifah), whose daughter, Peaches (Keke Palmer), is now engaged to a mastodon called Julian (Adam Devine). Manny is not too happy about his daughter’s choice, but the domestic drama is overtaken by a far bigger crisis, caused by who else, but Scrat, whose setting off a meteor shower threatens to obliterate Earth. Buck, the weasel, from the third Ice Age film, figures out a way to divert the hurtling asteroid. Michael Thurmeier-Galen Tan Chu bring non-stop comic madness into the film, overpopulated by a cast of delightfully daffy animal characters and a visual quality that’s pure eye candy.
