Twenty-thousand years ago, at the beginning of the Ice Age: many of the Earth's prehistoric animals begin to migrate south to avoid the cold. But Manfred (Romano) the woolly mammoth, likes to do things his way and decides to stay. And a terminally lazy sloth named Sid (Leguizamo) also remains behind, and "adopts" Manfred as his protector. While trying to ditch his annoying new "buddy", Manfred gets roped into helping Sid reunite an abandoned human baby named Roshan (Strong) with his family. They are soon joined by a sinister saber-toothed tiger named Diego (Leary), who befriends Sid and Manfred but secretly wants to devour Roshan.

As Manfred, Sid and Diego trek across the frozen landscape, a prehistoric squirrel/rat named Scrat tries desperately to carry out his mission in life – to bury an acorn – which will trigger calamitous events.

  • 5 stars "Ice Age is the pillar of modern animated pictures. "Born" as an idea even before 2002, when it was premiered, Ice Age takes a rather new and bold concept at what makes up a good animated movie. It was even nominated for an Oscar, so yeah... fancy that. Anyhow, came here to say that Goran Visnjic really rocked his supporting actor role, and I love the link between him and Denis Leary. It so melodramatic."
  • 5 stars "Ice Age is the greatest animated film of all times. It features a decent animation (well it was great back in the old days), one of the most heart-warming stories, rivalry, funny characters, downs, ups and whatever not. Of course I am talking about the main story in which the prehistoric animals must move out to survive the Ice Age, and of course I am talking about the fight, (Goran Visnjic was acting really convincing), of course I am talking about Scrat, and of course I am talking about Sid."
