Im not going extinct !By JediSi (301 reviews) from Kent , 25 Aug 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]The problem I have with sequels, is that expectations are set from the original and filmmakers are expected to go one better. Often they fail. Luckily for us they still try. Following Ice Age 1, this had to be good, really good.
After some years living in peace in a new pack, our old friends Sid, Manny and Diego discover that the ice is melting and a flood will cover the valley they now call home. Soon they organize a migration, but the trip won't be easy, especially for Manny, who begins to believe that he is the last Mammoth on earth.
Its a terrific animation, the delightful vocal performances of all the actors involved, and its irresistible imaginative charm. The old fashioned concepts of love and brotherhood do make their expected appearances but they are short and sweet and fit brilliantly in the film. In fact they are explained mostly through humour and this makes this film a near perfect family entertainment.
A rare great sequel, a film that exceeds expectations and delivers to its maximum potential. This movie is an absolute must see.

Ice CoolBy Lexi76 (34 reviews) from Leighton Buzzard , 12 Mar 2010
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI found it hilarious and still love Sprat and his adventures. I love the ice theme films they are brilliant for all ages and some adult humour with junior humour right up my street. Recommended for all.
Ice age 2 Meltdown LetdownBy OldRenny (26 reviews) from Shirebrook,Notts , 02 Mar 2010Expected this to be better than the 1st outing but it more or less matched it with same charcter's and similar style,there are some good laugh's and animation is brilliant so enjoyable for the kid's,thought it was a dissapointment and found it hard to be interested.

Ice Age 2: The MeltdownBy hovefilmlover (4 reviews) from Hove , 08 Jan 2010Another visually stunning offering from Pixar, we follow the three central characters through a new set of nail-biting adventures with the additional frisson of a budding romance. Threatened by global warming and the melting of glaciers at the end of the Ice Age, as the title implies, our crew must find their way to higher, drier ground -- a good, solid premise for a classic movie journey in both the physical and metaphorical sense as the characters bond through shared danger.
My favourite character, though, is actually the one who has no verbal lines at all (bar a few squeaks, grunts and snuffles): the brilliantly conceived Scrat, the sabre-toothed squirrel, pursuing his own hilarious, but inevitably doomed, quest to settle down with a nice acorn for dinner... Warning: some of his scenes may lead to loss of bladder control.
Beautifully rendered throughout, and with excellent characters, this is a truly funny feelgood movie, including faultless voiceover performances by the actors as well as tremendous visual gags. We take high-calibre computer animation so much for granted these days that it's worth remembering that just five years ago, this movie represented cutting-edge technology too. What I admire so much about the production team, however, is that they remembered that the technology should serve the storyline and characters.
Top quality stuff, and thoroughly recommended, whatever your age.
