Synopsis: Scrat’s nutty pursuit of the cursed acorn, which he’s been after since the dawn of time, has world-changing consequences – a continental cataclysm that triggers the greatest adventure of all for Manny, Diego and Sid. In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny, and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home. –Official Site
The Positive: While the first outing is still the best in the franchise, the fourth installment is a considerable improvement over the 2nd (“Meltdown”) and 3rd film (“Dawn of the Dinosaurs”). The animation is very competitive.
The Negative: As usual, Scrat steals the spotlight from Manny, Sid and Diego for delivering the laughs. Story-wise, the film is not at par with Disney/Pixar.
STARMOMETER SCORE: 7/10
