Ice Age: The Meltdown
The Ice age is melting away.
Diego, Manny and Sid return in this sequel to the hit animated movie Ice Age. This time around, the deep freeze is over, and the ice-covered earth is starting to melt, which will destroy the trio's cherished valley. The impending disaster prompts them to reunite and warn all the other beasts about the desperate situation.
It lacks the heart of the first one, but besides that, it improves in almost every category, but still nothing good. Just fun. The fact that Scrat basically saves all these people from extinction is pretty amusing.
The original Ice Age was a breath of fresh air because it was a cartoon that did not take itself too seriously, it did have heart where it needed such as the baby human being reunited with his family or the scene where Manny finds out about his past but it was mostly a throwback to those Chuck Jones cartoons. This mildly retains that with Scrat, but introduces some needless melodrama with the romance between Manny and a retarded mamooth who thinks she's a possum, also those possums are the equivalent of Jar Jar Binks, very annoying...
A very good sequel, and very funny. They haven't lost any of the wit in this sequel.
“Ice Age 2″ ist ein weiterer Film mit sprechenden Tieren. Diesmal werden aber keine neuen Charaktere ins Leben gerufen, sondern eine erfolgreiche Serie weitergeführt. Das Faultier Sid, das Mammut Manni und der Säbelzahntiger Diego wurden von vielen Kinozuschauern ins Herz geschlossen und so war es nur eine Frage der Zeit bis es eine Fortsetzung zu “Ice Age” gibt.
Ist es ja oftmals so, dass eine Fortsetzung nicht mit dem Urteil einer Reihe mithalten kann, gehört der zweite Teil von “Ice Age” zu den Vertretern von Fortsetzungen die mit dem ersten Teil mithalten können und in vielerlei Hinsicht sogar besser ist.
Als erstes wäre hier die technische Seite zu nennen. Diese hat sich seit dem ersten Teil deutlich verbessert, liegt aber…
Better than the first one. Lots of laughs.
Fun for the whole family.
Viggo liked it too!
"Again, Scrat steals the show once again with more on-screen time and makes the movie better but not better than the original".
It was little funny with my stomach hates me gag the Possums twins bugging Sid And Diego and music is much more epic then first movie.
Up to this point I have seen the other 3 films and took the opportunity to watch this so that I had the full set. It is much the same as the rest of them, this more than the others was a bunch of set pieces with a really slim story. Some of the jokes were brilliant it was obvious they had decided by this point that Scrat was what we all wanted to see and his fight with the ice was hilarious. There is a nice love story in this but apart form that it is very much the same as the previous film and fits in with the other two. If you have liked any of them then you will enjoy this as much as I did.
