  • From the studios that brought us "The Peanuts Movie" and "Rio", the biggest bang from the blockbuster franchise "Ice Age" just got a sequel in its fifth installment "Ice Age: Collision Course". It follows the acorn-addicted squirrel Scrat in his epic pursuit that launches himself to the universe, setting a series of unfortunate cosmic events, leading to threaten the mammals of the Ice Age world.

    To serve as the earth's last hope, our mammal squad must embark on an adventure that leads them in discovering scientific theories and introduction to a bunch of way too many characters, all of whom are either under-written, half-baked, useless or even quite annoying for some parts. There are a lot of physical humor, conventional yet colorful animation and themes of love for the family that kids would at least probably enjoy.

    As a science-fiction flick, "Collision Course" ultimately suffers from its unbelievably hyperactive and exaggerated premise. Also, the third act seems to be rushed and forced with a twist that feels out of place.

    VERDICT: What we totally get from Ice Age: Collision Course is included in its tagline: One Giant Mess.
