The fifth instalment of the Ice Age franchise, Ice Age: Collision Course has hit the screens. Directed by Mike Thurmeier, the movie features the voice of famous personalities such as Jennifer Lopez, Queen Latifah, Ray Romano, Simon Pegg, Dennis Leary and John Leguizamo.

 

How was the world created? A big mass of matter, big bang, evolution you may say. What if the world was created by something dumber? Something like Scrat setting up a series of events after discovering a flying saucer, that causes the beginning of the universe as we know it? (All the while in pursuit of his beloved acorn!) Well, that sets up the subplot. This time around, the mammalian family is faced with the danger of extinction due to an impending asteroid. Do they, using, prehistoric means and the crack-jack intelligence of Buck, the one-eyed weasel, save the world?   Manny, on the other hand, is faced with the danger of losing his only daughter, Peaches, who wishes to get married to her lover, Julian, and leave the herd. Do he and his wife learn to accept their daughter’s decision?. That primarily is the journey described in this episode of Ice Age.

 

Stepping into the theatre to watch this movie a possible few questions that may arise are, Will the film be as good as the previous ones? Will it have a unique plotline? Will it be hilarious? Will it engage the parents too? The answer, be least assured, is “the biggest ‘Yes’ you are ever going to get!” (Yea, that line was taken from the movie!) The film has interesting sequences which are informative, ingeniously creative and sensibly hilarious. Nowhere does the engagement slacken, so there’s no danger of toddlers wailing in the middle of the film. The movie is short, simple sensible and sssWWEEET! As always, the movie takes one into a different world and era, whose premise and characters are so ingeniously set up, that there isn’t a single occasion where the movie fails to put a smile upon your face!

 

Overall, Ice Age: Collision Course is short and sweet, moral science book slapped into science fiction for the kids. With healthy humour and juvenile drama that appeals pan age, the movie is an absolute,  one and half hour guaranteed feel-good time.

Verdict: One and half hours of guaranteed feel-good time.
