Animation of Ice Age 4 is great.Its not brilliant but its follows the standards set by the previous Ice Age movies.Just like the previous movies ,this one too sets up the story in a large environment ,but on the downside this wasnt as colourful as the previous ones.Much of the story takes place on the icy oceans.Characters were nicely drawn too.

The Ice Age series has never boasted of any great story telling.The story is for the kids and the humour is mostly adult orientated.In continental drift ,we have the usual recipe ,daughter and dad have a fight,one of them gets separated and both learn a lesson.And this is littered with enough cliches that its predictable from start to finish.

Direction is generally good.In a story that doesnt offer much surprises ,he does his best to inject some freshness into the movie.The action scenes are ok.The comedy is a bit 'adult' for a kids movie.

Overall ,those who liked the previous Ice Age movies will enjoy this one too.For others ,this movie is more for kids than for adults.

Animation- 3.5/5
Story- 2/5
Direction- 3.5/5
Action- 3/5
Comedy- 2.5/5
