Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) Movie Review

The prehistoric animals most successful in the animation films return to the movie theaters for fifth time, now, the end of the world is their great concern.

"Collision Course" is titled the last adventure of the franchise most recalcitrant in the animated world - with reference to revenue at the box office -. What started as a emotional and poignant incident more than one decade ago, has evolved admirably, but not always with satisfactory results. The fifth installment opens with a shameful but entertaining prologue focused on the endless mishaps that suffer our saber-toothed squirrel, Scrat (Chris Wedge), mishaps that leading him to outer space, seemingly, a safe place, however, Scrat continues his battle causing a chaotic clash of worlds, projecting millions of purple meteors to planet Earth, endangering the life of all animals.

Indisputably, Scrat is Blue Sky's emblem, what is Buzz Lightyear or Nemo for Pixar. Regardless of the frequency of his appearances, he always maintains his crazy and stimulating essence in each act, and without him, it would not be possible more films in the saga. Screenwriters and writers have discovered the rough gem that was hidden since 2002, a small and irritating animal, focusing on each plot twist as a consequence of the facts carried out by the squirrel, one point in favor. "Ice Age" still has future and even with Pixar ("Finding Dory") and Illumination ("The Secret Life of Pets") on the look-out, Many, Diego and Sid have high possibilities to continue with the winning streak at the box office, at least, that seems.

The fate of prehistoric mammals has been relatively good, and it seems that everyone (with exceptions) live in pairs. Manny (Ray Romano) and Ellie (Queen Latifah) face the rapid maturity of their daughter Peaches (Keke Palmer), who is in a kind of relationship with Julian (Adam Devine). A sub-plot anything original and very predictable, since Julian did not get along with Manny, but yes he got along with others, unleashing the envy and jealous of the mammoth, and if there is someone so naive, it has a happy ending. Nothing new!. Diego (Denis Leary) and Shira (Jennifer Lopez), the saber-tooth tigers, get supporting roles and their characteristics fades for a moment, besides, the screenwriters give clues of a possible litter between these two tigers in one scene, something that continues leading it astray. They should perhaps rethink the spin-offs about a character in specific, for not to damage to generational characters. Sid (John Leguizamo) is still in an emotional imbalance, something by what we love him, much of the comedy is centered in this cute animal that will continue producing loud laughs for the rest of our lives. The opossums, Crash (Seann William Scott) and Eddie (Josh Peck) remain comical objects used for the humor of the film. Buck (Simon Pegg), the star of "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" is infuriating, cumbersome and rough, his jokes and eccentricities did not entertain children nor adults, a character who has to be eliminated immediately. Despite this, he's who predicts the catastrophe, and he's who attracts new, humiliating and poor villains, more filler unnecessary to the story.

With the seriousness of a cataclysm and so witty characters, Mike Thurmeier and Galen T. Chu recreate a balance between comedy and drama, unbalancing briefly because of Buck. It still is space for moments unique and even memorable, but in a epoch in where is difficult find interesting proposals, "Collision Course" comes off well rid, despite its reused plot. The teachings are also present, the acceptance of a father to the maturity of his daughter, a young's independence, over-protection errors and family work are some of the lessons that the movie wants to assert.

Soundscapes doesn't reach the visual spectacle that has been regenerated with the passing years, however, it achieves the ambitions proposed. Purple's tonality of the shooting stars , the textures of reptiles and mammals, effects in the sky, the brightness of Geotopia and more details open a privileged place to position itself as a nice addition to the animated world. New characters are insufficient and none manages to deliver what they promised, so it leaves on a slope to the likely next sequel. We want to continue to seeing what it is capable of providing that ice age that once shook us, those mammals, who still do not deserve to die out.
