You favorite furry animals are back and on an new adventure!When Fast Tony starts talking about the end of the world no one really believes him, and think it's a scam to sell air reeds(a snorkle-straw to breathe underwater).But when Sid decides he wants some respect, he climbs the biggest slide the Eviscerator at the very top of the ice wall.Manny & Diego stop him just in time before he jumps and finally see for themselves that they are surrounded by water at the top and the dam is about to break and flood them all!! All the creatures start their journey to the valley to try to escape the flood before it is too late.During their trip Manny starts to think he is the last mammoth.. until he runs into Ellie who falls from a tree in front of him.Ellie has two brothers, Crash & Eddie who have convinced her that she is also a "possum" like them.Manny falls for this stubborn-silly Ellie "possum", but always says the wrong things.Can they all make it to safety before the flood reaches them?? You will have to watch to find out!!

This was HILLARIOUS!!! This was far better than the first movie. John Leguizamo was brilliant as usual, the perfect voice for Sid. And it was great having the voice of Queen Latifah as Ray Ramano's love interest. This movie was a comedy-lovers delight. And of course the squirrel, Scrat, was genius from day one. Every scene he's in is like watching a great silent movie. That actually requires a lot of skill on behalf of the storytellers and animators to create scenes without dialogue that are equally as entertaining and engaging as those with dialogue. The latter is one reason why the first "Ice Age" film distinguished itself. So the team at Blue Sky Studios should be congratulated. This is a sharp movie. No sophomore slump. I have the first one on DVD and I can't wait to get this incredible sequel. Everything just seems more developed and elaborated upon this time around. Computer-animated films were still in their infancy when the first film got released. But the technological progress that has been made since then is obvious and it's been put to good use throughout the movie. I really enjoyed "Ice Age 2." So if you were a fan of the first one, then don't forget to get the sequel when it hits stores this November.
This is a well animated sequel to the movie Ice Age. The movie features the same characters that formed their mixed species family unit in the first movie, Manny the mammoth, Sid the sloth, and Diego the saber-tooth tiger. In the movie they are in a rush to get out of the valley before it is flooded when the glacier melts and breaks away. The movie features new characters that become added to this unique family unit including a female mammoth who must be convinced she is actually a mammoth.
There's not much to say about this movie. It was a really great movie. Not often do you see a sequel to a movie, let alone an animated movie (2nd to Toy Story of course) that will get as many laughs out of you as the first one. Honestly I think the 2nd Ice Age movie probably got a few more of my chuckles under its belt. One of the best parts if for nothing else, is the fact that they brought back ALL the original voices. That and Scrat the squirell looking thing chasing his nut around. I'm sure most parents who saw and had their kids see Ice Age will adore Ice Age: The Meltdown as well if they haven't already. And if you haven't bought it yet...you should check out around eBay and get it because it's something that's worth watching again and again every so often.
i bought this dvd because i loved the first one ;frankly, i did not expect the second to be as good.surprise! it is as good because this sequel does'nt try to remake the first one ,but continues the story of characters we care about(who couldn't love these misfits?)also ,now we get new characters and the 'possum boys are a scream.we are very happy that our mammoth is no longer alone and the path is now open for the rest of the little "herd" to also find mates.loved it!
The animation is top notch, and I just can't get enough of the realistic ice and water landscape. As with the first "Ice Age" movie it is Scrat the acorn-obsessed rodent steals the laughs with his hilarious attempts at obtaining an acorn. This is one piece of animation that doesn't rely too much on sight gags, of spoofing current affairs, but one filled with more witty dialogue and kept on an even keel with its interesting storyline. This sequel is as enjoyable as, if not better, than the original. In today’s RUSH RUSH world and just about every movie out there filled with obscenity’s and BloodnGutz This is a relief. And all out Great Family Movie.
