While it does have a few WTF/dumb moments, it managed to have a great story, new interesting characters, some funny moments, and upgraded animation. It is a good sequel.

Ice Age 2 takes a huge step down from the first movie and let me down, the first one was my favorite movie as a kid.

Ice Age 2 is still very funny, but for sure a huge step down from the first movie when it comes to storytelling. The humor is propably just as good as in the first movie, but everything else is pretty forgettable.

It's not as good as the first but it is still fun. It has some funny moments and a decent story that is mostly entertaining.

If you liked the first one you are sure to like this one. Manny's quest to find another Mammoth was kind of heart breaking. The CGI has improved since the last movie, nothing really has changed except the plot. It mixes events that happened into the movie cleverly, even if it historically inaccurate. The humor is there sometimes but Scrat is still the funniest character.

A very good and funny sequel that keeps the series fresh but yet again it's Scratch who steals the show and in all honesty if he wasn't in these films maybe Ice Age wouldn't be as big as it is.

Ice Age: The Meltdown is the great sequel to Ice Age, even though this is the least best of the Ice Age series. Ice Age: The Meltdown introduces new characters (some good and some awful), more Scrat, and a new story!

Its much better than a huge amount of crappy animated films out there, but its missing that heart-warming magical charm that made the first film a hit sensation. Of course the animation is twice as polished as the first but not enough to cover up the fact there's not even half as much substance this time round. Also, the introduction of so many new characters to our favourite trio-herd was almost annoying I found. Scrat's antics are the most entertaining aspect, which says a lot.

For the first time Blue Sky has a sequel and not bad for a sequel, because sometimes the sequels aren't big time movies. Review by Logan Cornn.
½ September 17, 2015
The worst of the series but still worth a watch.
May 1, 2011
A continuation of putting the prehistoric trio onto another adventure with enhanced animation, but through an improbable setting with its superior predecessor's senses of fun humor and little in the heart retained while maintaining a meaningful connection. (B+)

(Full review coming soon)

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown fails to improve from its predecessor and delivers instead a mess of an animated film
