Ice Age 2: The Meltdown
With all of the big-budget CG animations coming our way for 2006 the studios are working to make sure that it is their film remembered by the time 2006 closes out. Unfortunately it is impossible to tell moviegoers how to feel and some of the releases have not had the best start.
We have been repeatedly hinted that Happy Feet is not all that and we now have our first review for Ice Age 2: The Meltdown that is completely negative.
What is going on here?
Ice Age 2: The Meltdown Review
The good people over at AICN have recently posted the first review for Ice Age 2 and it isn't pretty.
Hola all. Massawyrm here. Well, Ice Age: The Meltdown is a wash, a total waste of time and talent that will prove to be this year’s most readily forgotten high grossing film. What appears to be nothing but a cobbled together assimilation of all the spitballed ideas written down, but rejected, for inclusion in the first film, this meandering sequel barely qualifies for ‘feature film’ status by stretching out as much filler as humanly possible. This isn’t so much a film as it is a series of short Ice Age episodes haphazardly woven together to give the appearance of actually being a feature. The kids will love it. But no one over the age of 13 will.
The Meltdown is a perfect example of a ‘kids’ film, a film intended for minors that doesn’t for a moment acknowledge that an adult would ever possibly be present at a viewing of it for very long. As mundane as the most pedestrian of Saturday morning cartoons, The Meltdown is the worst kind of sequel: a slapdash retread meant only to cash in.
The attacks don't end there so head on over to AICN and see how bad Ice Age 2 really is.
Ice Age 2: The Meltdown comes to theatres on March 31st.
