This animated movie is a real treat for kids and adults. Sid the 3 toed sloth (Voice of John Leguizamo) is left by his relatives when its time to migrate (he wonders why they did not wake him when it was time to go)and is hilarious (as Mr. Leguizamo is multi-talented) Sid brings two other prehistoric animals into what turns out to be a quest to find the "herd" of a human baby as an Ice Age approaches. One of the animals is Manny, a mammoth played by Ray Romano and Diego, a sabretoothed cat played by Denis Leary. I fell in love with these endearing characters who go through so much to return the baby to the humans.
In the mean while a prehistoric squirrel has trys to store a nut thoughout the movie and the DVD has a little featurette with the "squirrel" himself as the only character. It is adorable and very funny,well scripted. This is a 4 thumbs up movie!
If you go forward a few million years from where “Dinosaurs” left off, you’ll end up on the towering glaciers and the frigid tundras of “Ice Age”. With the reliable state-of-the-art graphics that we have come to expect, “Ice Age” brings with it an amazing peak into a bygone era of environmental transition and mass extinction. With a bunch of wacky, funny and wisecracking animals, this new gang of kids characters will surely make anyone forget the severity of nature’s cruelty.
“Ice Age” opens with a huge migration of every living thing that could possibly walk, crawl or fly. As the global temperature slowly gets colder, early ancestors of modern day animals find themselves heading for warmer climates. However, a few do linger around and we meet the ones who are left behind.
Powerful and stoic, Manfred the Mammoth (voiced by Ray Romano) unintentionally saves the life of a weak doofus sloth named Sid (voiced by John Leguizamo) from the crushing tramples of two rhinoceros. Deliberately left behind by his family, the ostracized Sid uses the idea of owing his life to Manfred as an excuse of tagging along with his newly found “buddy”.“Ice Age” is a great movie for the kids to watch for it values the importance of friendship, trust and the sense of belonging. The satire and jokes keep adults entertained as well.
I also have to mention primordial squirrel named Scrat, that has a recurring cameos all throughout the movie. His unceasing attempts to keep collecting acorns in his possession add to the comedic impetus!
Might I say the detail on Blu-Ray is superb! A fun film for for a "movie night" to enjoy with family or friends.
This DVD set comes highly recommended. Of course the story is very funny and the graphics are amazing. Our 2 year old son LOVES this movie. It is the original movie where the main characters Manny (the Mammoth), Sid (the Sloth) and Diego (the Sabertooth Tiger) are introduced and meet each other as they try to return a human baby to his herd.
If you want watch the newer movies in this fantastic series, "Ice Age2, the Meltdown" and "Ice Age: the Dawn of the Dinosaurs" this is a must see, to learn about the main characters and to get some of the inside jokes in those following movies.
This movie has become an instant classic for animated movies and it is entertaining for young AND old.
The good thing about this particular DVD set is that it comes with both wide screen and full frame version for those of you who don't have a Widescreen TV in every room yet, like me.
