Ice Age (2002)

An idiosyncratic mix of characterization, [~dated] animation, cartoonish violence, & prehistoric comedy, Ice Age may not be as evolved, sharply-crafted, or thematically astute as Pixar or Dreamworks, but is serviceable family entertainment. 6/10.

Plot Synopsis: Twenty-thousand years ago, Earth is a wondrous, prehistoric world filled with great danger, not the least of which is the beginning of the Ice Age. To avoid a really bad frostbite, the planet’s majestic creatures – and a few small, slothful ones – begin migrating south . The story revolves around sub-zero heroes: a woolly mammoth, a saber-toothed tiger, a sloth and a prehistoric combination of a squirrel and rat, known as Scrat.
