Ice Age: The Meltdown (2006)
Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure, Family Film, Comedy
The sequel to the first film “Ice Age” and the story is (almost) just as strong. It is great to see the cast again (minus the child 😛 ) though the danger isn’t as imminent as it might have been in the first one but there is enough to enjoy. Scrat is really good in this as he brings (as he did in the first) the majority of the comedy 😛 ! Ellie I did like (not as much as the original cast) as she brought a good dynamic to the narrative. Her background story was cute and sad (in a good way 😛 ). I liked that the film makers decided to explore the mammoth theme as it was nice to prove that at least one more is out there (I won’t say anymore so I don’t spoil 😛 ). The possums, Crash and Eddie, I didn’t like. I get why they are in the film I just didn’t like them. Diego ‘s fear of the water was interesting and funny. Sid’s scene with the colourful mini sloths was epic and the end sequence was good. The romance (trying not to spoil) is nice. Overall highly enjoyable sequel but not as good as the original. Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
