Product Description

Amazon.ca

The love life of a woolly mammoth--handled with G-rated delicacy--drives this sequel to the first computer-animated romp in the age of prehistoric mammals. While the first Ice Age took a delightful premise and suffocated it with a formulaic plot--in which a mammoth named Manfred (voiced by Ray Romano, Everyone Loves Raymond), a sloth named Sid (John Leguizamo, Moulin Rouge!), and a sabre-tooth tiger named Diego (Denis Leary, Rescue Me) helped an abandoned human infant return to its tribe (basically, Three Mammals and a Baby)--the sequel takes the now-familiar setting, gives it a shapeless, episodic storyline, and yet somehow becomes pretty darn entertaining. Faced with the threat of a flood from melting ice, our heroic trio are on the run to escape from their blossoming valley. On the way, they meet a female mammoth (Queen Latifah, Bringing Down the House) who thinks she's an opossum and get menaced by some freshly defrosted carnivorous fish. Add into the mix a herd of lava-worshipping mini-sloths, some Busby Berkeley-style vultures, and more ingenious slapstick featuring the acorn-crazed Scrat, and Ice Age: The Meltdown will amuse even jaded adults. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Your favorite sub-zero heroes are back for another incredible adventure in the super-cool animated comedy Ice Age the Meltdown! The action heats up - and so does the temperature - for Manny, Sid, Diego and Scrat. Trying to escape the valley to avoid a flood of trouble, the comical creatures embark on a hilarious journey across the thawing landscape and meet Ellie, a female woolly mammoth who melts Manny's heart. With its dazzling animation, unforgettable characters and an all-new Scrat short, Ice Age: The Meltdown is laugh-out-loud fun for the whole family!

The kids really enjoyed this. At first, "Ice Age: The Meltdown" looks like the inevitable sequel to the famous 20th Century Fox animated blockbuster, trying to cash in the success of the previous movie but that wasn't the case. This new adventure of the prehistoric mammals manages to stay on its own legs and delivers nothing but great fun becoming a worthy sequel. That alone is an achievement in its own right.

"The Meltdown" continues with the style of its predecessor both in humor and animation, so those who fell in love with the original will love the sequel too. The difference however, is in the fact that now Manny is our main character. We get to know more about this character apparently anti-social and cynic, but who in the inside feels very lonely after the loss of his family. Sid and Diego make good sidekicks in this adventure and while their roles in the film are somewhat diminished, they still are very well-developed characters. Scrat, the nut-obsessed squirrel is back too in his constant quest for his lost nut, giving slapstick humor of the finest type in every scene he is in.

It is always hard for sequels to live up to the expectations, specially in family-oriented animation films, but director Carlos Saldanha and his team manage to make a funny movie that never gets boring or tiresome (something vital as it is a movie mainly oriented for kids).

While probably the story is not exactly original or complicated writers Peter Gaulke and Gerry Swallow make up for it with good character development and funny one-liners that fit the movie tone very good. Two new characters, the young possums Crash (Sean William Scott) and Eddie (Josh Peck) are a welcomed addition to the family, as well as Ellie (Queen Latifah), the lost mammoth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guranteed to delight just about everybody March 3 2007
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
While I didn't think Ice Age: The Meltdown boasted a particularly memorable storyline, it's still a five star, very funny movie all the way through. The filmmakers tend to milk things a little too far in my opinion, especially when it comes to the poor old saber-toothed squirrel just trying to get a nut, and let's face it, a wooly mammoth that thinks she's an opossum is just plain silly -- even though it, like everything else, actually manages to work pretty darn well in this movie.

As far as the story goes, Manny (Ray Romano) the wooly mammoth, Diego (Denis Leary) the saber-tooth tiger, and Sid (John Leguizamo) the sloth have to lead all of their Arctic friends to safety when their icebound home is threatened by meltdown-generated flooding (thankfully, without the story goose-stepping to today's environmentalist wacko hysteria). Along the way, they pick up Ellie (Queen Latifah) and her two opossum brothers. It takes most of the journey for Manny to convince Ellie that she is not actually a wooly mammoth (which is particularly important to Manny, as he was beginning to fear he was the last of his kind). The gang face all sorts of dangers they must overcome (and fears they must conquer) if they are to survive. On paper, it's all pretty formulaic, but the winsome depth of the characters and of course the extraordinary animation makes for a consistently funny, exciting adventure.

Sid (Leguizamo) steals the show time and time again in my opinion, but everyone will latch on to one favorite character or another. The climax is actually pretty exciting and heart-warming, helping make this a film you can't help but enjoy immensely. Ice Age ' The Meltdown doesn't distinguish itself the way, for example, Cars does, but it's definitely a film the whole family will enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sequel! Sept. 26 2006
By Tommy Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
INTRODUCTION:The original ice age came out in 2002 this year they release a sequel ice age 2 the meltdown.Featuring Manfred(a mammoth),Sid(a sleeping sloth)and Diego(a saber toothed tiger) our heroes from the first ice age are there along with some new characters.If you liked the first one you should like it.The sequel isnt as great as the first but its very good too and if you hadnt seen the first one go see it as well.

STORYLINE:Some animal lied by telling that there would be a big meltdown and they would all die but its only to sell his articles by saying they would need them.Manfred,Sid and Diego almost got killed by walking on such melting ice.They come to the conclusion that there is really going to be a meltdown and they go tell the other animals.At first the animals dont beleve them but they finaly move out to try to get to the wodden boat that will save them(its really a basic wodden boat).Manfred is lonely becauser he thinks there are no more mammoths then he mets one but she`s special...From there the movie started.

SCRAT`S ADVENTURE:If you saw the first ice age you know what im talking about.Scrat the lovable squirrel goes on quest of acorns

again he is hilarious his part were the funniest of the movie.He will stop at nothing to get an acorn it reminds me of the roadrunner show.

MY APPECIATION:I think this movie awsome many funny parts lovable animals and great storyline.Sure its a sequel and depending on your tastes it might not be as good as the first one but its still an ejoyable movie and the audience seemed to like it a lot.Its a movie for adults and kids wich is great because not many movies fits for both but this one does.

ANIMATION:The animation looks great its computer animation wich is becoming more and ore famous.
