ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT still has the witty value of hilarious laughter, particularly the antics of that nut-chasing saber-toothed squirrel Scrat, but it's close of keeping up with the previous ICE AGE movies including the first one in my case. The voice acting of the sequel is still good, especially from the old stars like Ray Romano, Denis Leary and John Leguizamo and newcomers like Wanda Sykes who does Sid's granny and Jennifer Lopez for the female saber-toothed tiger Shira.

It is expected ICE AGE 4 will be the last of the animated film series, although it looks like there is a possibility of a sequel. But it's still an entertaining and good ICE AGE movie that everyone will probably enjoy.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
