Manny (Ray Romano), Diego (Denis Leary) and Sid (John
Leguizamo) are on the road again — well, this is the Ice Age, so it’s
really a pre-road time, but these three seem to be laying the pathway
out with each new adventure — which means that they are edging closer
and closer to drifting into the modern age.
The less-than-engaging third 'Ice Age' outing starts off on the wrong foot with a mix of mammoths, saber-tooth tigers and dinosaurs that wouldn't have a remote chance of occupying the same timeframe. The trick to success isn't all that tricky: Just tell a good story that's moving and engaging with the characters you've already spent a couple of films developing. Grade: C-.
