Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

The sixth instalment in the Ice Age franchise, and the first to go straight to streaming, marks a sad turning point. Most of the talented voice cast are gone, replaced with less recognisable names, which cheapens and confuses things. Simon Pegg does return as the eponymous one-eyed weasel, who becomes a hero to pinheaded possum brothers Crash and Eddie (now voiced by Vincent Tong and Aaron Harris) when they run into him whilst exploring the Lost World. The trio are assisted by Buck's old partner Zee (Justina Machado) as they tangle with megalomaniac dinosaur Orson (decent work from Free Guy's Utkarsh Ambudkar). It's not the most delicately rendered or smartly scripted of animations, yet there's still an appealing goofiness to its visual style and at least some of its trademark energy. However, the filmmakers are just going over old ground now and the slung-together story, predictable narrative beats and tired messaging don't help. At a mere 82 minutes, the film doesn't overstay its welcome but it feels like the series is on the verge of extinction.
