With the impending ice age almost upon them, a mismatched trio of prehistoric critters -- Manny the woolly mammoth, Diego the saber-toothed tiger and Sid the giant sloth -- find an orphaned infant and decide to return it to its human parents. Along the way, the unlikely allies become friends. But when enemies attack, their quest takes on far nobler aims..
Establishing Blue Sky Studios as the new player in the computer animation arena after both Pixar & DreamWorks Animation had made their mark, Ice Age is a sensibly crafted, delightfully humoured & wonderfully narrated adventure comedy that packs in an interesting set of pre-historic characters, manages to be surprisingly touching on many occasions & is thoroughly amusing from start to finish.
The story of Ice Age takes place during the advent of the titular global phenomenon and follows a woolly mammoth named Manny, a ground sloth named Sid & a saber-toothed cat named Diego who, after coming across a human child & ultimately deciding to return him to his tribe, embark on an exciting adventure while braving the harsh conditions & unexpected challenges of the worsening…
Sixth watch of Buddy the Elf. Twentieth Century Fox Animation have always tried, but never succeeded, copying Pixar Animation Studio’s style. Ice Age surely is their best effort, but still falls short in providing the magic, the entertainment and the quality of animation of such pictures as The Incredibles. As a kid, Ice Age is enjoyable enough, but as an adult, one easily spots the discrepancies between the two studios, for example the ‘stiffness’ of the humans in here. At least this first entry has heart and tries to accomplish something more than easy money - something that I cannot say about basically every other feature that Twentieth Century Fox Animation has released since. It comes to the front in some joyous parts: Dodos! Overall, however, this is just not on par.
This isn't just humor and pretty colors but a nice, sentimental story of how a little baby softens up a couple of tough characters.
Why is this not on Criterion yet
Ice Age proves to us that it isn't just about pretty colors, childish humor, and flashy imagery to be a good movie. It has heart and a solid story with characters to care about. The movie has flaws, but so is every movie.
To date the only good Ice Age movie, and that's not saying much cause despite my huge nostalgia towards this film, it's not as great as I remember it to be. The CGI animation has not aged well at all (especially the human characters and some of the designs of the saber-tooths, though the backgrounds are still impressive and so is the cave-drawing scene showing Manny's heartbreaking backstory), because there have been so many needless sequels, despite the comedy in this being great it now still feels artificial and stale (Scrat the squirrel and his acorn is starting to grow old), the pop-culture references are phoned in, and one of the main characters is given a lazy-butt death cheat that…
i can't even properly enjoy this film because all i get is reminders of the terrible sequels
honestly so good so iconic
Decent, but not good enough to warrant the crap we got later. Scrat's the only thing anyone remembers about these films anyway.
Very fun children's animation film. Sadly the animation hasn't held up over time and you can see the age. Looking past this though there is a fun story here with some really good jokes.
a bit meh
Yes, this is the film that started the cluster**** of bull**** sequels that came after. If you want an opinion of a girl who saw this when it first came out, it should've stayed this first movie and nothing else. Look, I love Ray Ramano as an actor, but the sequels were too much in comparison to this. This film definitely had the most plot in comparison to the other films. Also, you get to find out where the guy who played Luigi from the Super Mario Brothers movie ended up.
Ice Age is sort of a new approach in the genre of animation in both comedy and drama. Combining the two in a kids film that at times can get very silly and a little serious.
As the climate is changing and the animals head south. All except for a mammoth named Manny voiced by Ray Romano. When sloth Sid voiced by John Leguizamo is left behind by his family he decides to tag along which really annoys him. Meanwhile a human camp is attacked by a pack of sabertooth’s out for revenge. When a mother trying to protect her baby jumps off a cliff she is dies and her baby ends up in the hands of Manny and Sid.…
The original "Ice Age" is a film that will always be a favorite of mine. I've enjoyed this movie ever since I was a kid and it's something that I still enjoy watching every now and then. While some may argue that it didn't leave as big of an impact as "Shrek" or "Toy Story", there's no denying that it left quite a bit of an impression on many. It was the first film made by Blue Sky Studios, technically making this the "Toy Story" of that company. It was massive hit financially and critically and spawned numerous sequels. "Ice Age" has a narrative that is very similar to another animated favorite of mine, "The Land Before Time". It follows…
If you're feeling overwhelmed, but still want to squeeze a film into your daily routine, this list is made for…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
