Astonishing weather patterns emerge and plunge the world's temperatures into steep decline. Manny sees a mammoth family and becomes very lonesome about his own isolated plight without a mate. It's definitely worth a watch! The movie is a treat for all. The baby is the catalyst for forming a new herd. I love ancient animals-smilodon in particular-so Diego is one of my favorite characters in this prehistoric production.
This first film is noteworthy because of the presence of human beings, a sight of Stonehenge, and the very interesting episode with the prehistoric human cave drawings. Diego, the carnivorous saber-toothed tiger, is introduced as a predator, and he wants to grab the human baby for his tiger gang to devour. Manny meets Sid, the sloth, and immediately develops a dislike for the pushy Sid. Findings by environmental scientist Professor Thom Archer suggest that Halo, the corporate energy company drilling on the Greenland Glacier are causing it to melt. The glacier collapses, with devastating consequences. The stage is set for the later independently embedded cartoons in which the squirrel is constantly trying to conquer that iconic acorn, at battle with nature and his nut.
There's an inspired musical section with the extinct dodo birds who seemed too dumb to survive. They have lots of adventure, heartache and headaches as they journey to return an infant boy to his father-or to the waiting jaws of wily saber-toothed cats! I remember watching this with my brothers when I was younger. Archer's warnings are ignored, so he heads to the Arctic to find indisputable evidence. Manny, the mammoth voice of Ray Romano is going against the tide, headed in the other direction. They give human qualities to the animals in fact they are almost ideal humans , and, of course, the animals speak English. In Blu-Ray this movie has stunning color and visual effects. Upon arrival, he realizes humankind is under immediate threat, and races home to save his family.
Later they find a human baby, and both develop a love for the child. In later movies of the series he becomes more of an independent entity and even finds a soul mate. There's some bathroom humor that kids will probably get and titter over. The importance of friendship and loyalty, the need for belonging to a group, and the need for companionship-all of these come out of the dramatic action. For kids and adults watching there are of a lot of lessons to be learned. There is a great deal of story-building in this movie with many ideas planted for further chapters which will bring on the introduction of more characters, and mating instincts will flower. .
Scrat, the saber-toothed squirrel, is wrestling with his prized acorn although in this outing some of his vignettes become brief interactions with the main characters. To save themselves from peril, Manny, Sid, Diego, and the rest of the herd leave their home and embark on a quest full of thrills and spills, highs and lows, laughter and adventure while traveling to exotic new lands and encountering a host of colorful new characters. At the beginning of this film there's a huge migration to warmer climes going on with lots of different species heading south. It's full of vocal and sight gags. Even though these are animals, the moviemakers have concentrated on characterization. There are a lot of scary adventures including cascading ice, molten lava, teetering icy crags.
Sid is a lovable clutz and poor Manny the mammoth is the reluctant leader of the strange pack. The animation is a bit dated now but the movie is still sweet and full of the fun I remember.
