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.
The second instalment in the Ice Age series does up the ante when it comes to Scrat's misadventures, introduces new characters into the lives of Manny, Sid & Diego without any friction, and adds more pre-historic animals into its list but it lacks the freshness of the original and is a slight deterioration in storytelling quality as well.
The story of Ice Age: The Meltdown continues the journey of Manny, Sid & Diego who embark on a new adventure after finding out that the ice age is nearing its end & with all the melting ice, a great flood is approaching. But on their way to a higher ground, they discover that Manny isn't really the only woolly mammoth left alive.
Caught this on TV, had to watch it. Not as good as the first one, but it's good and funny.
American Animation is DEAD.
Steve Jobs is dead.
Aaron Sorkin is dead.
I called the head of Payless, and I'm like "I'm dead."
Isn't that so funny?
When the original Ice Age movie was being developed, the original intention of this film was to be 2D animated, fully dramatic with barely any comic relief, and directed by the underrated genius behind The Secret of NIMH himself, Don Bluth, but was taken away from him when Fox decided that traditional animation was a dying form and was made into a CGI comedy. Think of what could have been when watching this crappy, badly made, cash-grabbed sequel. What's wrong with it? Well, global warming is used as a plot-device, the likeable characters of the first have tired gags and are more mean-spirited, there's lazy adult jokes and innuendoes, Queen Latifah playing a mammoth convinced she's a possum (no joke),…
Passable, engaging sequel. Nothing more, nothing less.
This was always my favorite one growing up and today I can actually say it's the only "Ice Age" sequel that actually works well.
Though it doesn't quite have the charm, wit and much less the originality of the first film, is a little more juvenile with its humor, features an unnecessary musical number and is once again predictable from beginning to end "Ice Age: The Meltdown" does mantain the big heart from its predecessor, the original characters as well as the new additions are really great, there's some genuine character development here for Manny and Diego, enough of the jokes hit well enough and I dug it not having a real villain per say and it being a lot…
Ugh. The acorn heaven scene was awesome, but the rest is just kinda unfunny and sappy at times and blah.
Haven't seen the first one but this one didn't really convince me. Kind of basic animation film with basic and predictable characters and plot.
I LITERALLY CAN'T EXPLAIN HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS FRANCHISE.
DIEGO AND SID ARE SO HILARIOUS AND THEIR CONVERSATIONS. I just really insanely love Ice Age.
Every time that a animated film is successful there is always bound to be sequel. Some people at times people wonder if it is even necessary and at times ask if it was worth it. Ice Age saw our characters as they entered and now we see how they get out of it.
Ray Romano, John Leguizamo and Denis Leary return as our favorite trio. Manny the Mammoth, Sid the Sloth and Diego the Sabertooth. Last time a change is global warming that made every thing cold and now things are heating up with a flood on the way. Now they must travel to an ark in order to seek shelter and along the way they will meet another Mammoth…
"Ice Age: The Meltdown" is a film that falls into the guilty pleasure category, at least for me. It definitely doesn't come close to living up to the first film, but it is still an enjoyable enough movie. The first major difference is the change in tone. The original "Ice Age" was an occasionally emotional film. This sequel is a lot more kiddie than its predecessor. There's more of an emphasis on pop culture gags and slapstick. This may turn off some adults. The story is a lot weaker and is just not as interesting as the first movie. It feels a lot more generic with its disaster movie like story. There are several new additions to the herd. We…
Now that the baby situation is taken care of, this mismatched trio can buckle down and get ready for the good ol' apocalypse. Boy, "An Inconvenient Truth" was quick to eclipse this film's theory that global warming is actually a cyclical event... and that all prehistoric animals good be good friends who communicated in English. Well, there are some scientific accuracies here, as the heroes need to migrate, pick up food, and realize a rhetorical apocalypse tradition that is literally older than time itself: get laid (Scrat ain't the only creature trying to get that nut). I don't want to encourage the cuing of a Pat Benatar song or anything, but it would appear that Manny has found "Love in…
A very well-made animated film that has something for everyone. Good fun for the whole family with a timely message about living decently to prevent the NEXT extinction--our own.
Idk it wasn't awful but... WHY ARE THERE SO MANY? Global warming is obviously a real issue or there wouldn't be so many of these things.
Also I used to really like Scrat but now not so much..
Let's just pretend this is the second (t) and last (f) Ice Age movie and move on.
Films set in a snowy landscape or with a long sequence in a vastly snowy landscape. (Why are there so…
