Review, Ice Age: The Meltdown (2006)

Climate change is the process of the change in the average temperature of the oceans, atmosphere, and earth. In prehistoric times, many animals had to migrate because the glaciers were about to melt and find a safe place to live. 

The issue of climate change has been talked about all over the country and is still a major concern to reduce its impact. To reduce its impact, various measures have been taken, from adopting green technology and improving energy efficiency to supporting reforestation programs.

This movie depicts how prehistoric animals adapted to rapid environmental changes in the face of melting ice.

Ice Age: The Meltdown continues the story of Manny, Sid, and Diego’s friendship to save themselves from climate change that threatens their lives with melting glaciers. However, on the way to safety, the threat of extinction haunts Manny, who realizes that he may be the only one of his kind left.

The journey continues, and the three lovebirds meet new characters such as the clumsy Crash and Eddie (opossum), and Ellie (mammoth). Despite the addition of new characters, the story still feels intact and solid.

In terms of humor, Ice Age: The Meltdown manages to use satisfying jokes, and slapstick comedy. Like the moment when Ellie, who is a mammoth, mistakes herself for an opossum. When she hangs like an opossum and falls due to her large weight, it adds a funny and entertaining impression. 

Moreover, the character of Scrat, a saber tooth squirrel who always fails in his attempts to get acorns, becomes one of the climactic points in this movie, provoking laughter from the audience with his typical cuteness.

In terms of visuals, Ice Age: The Meltdown manages to showcase a remarkable technological sophistication. The realistic and stunning visualizations are meticulously designed to create a mesmerizing viewing experience. The cool forests and stunning glaciers have added emotional depth to the story. 

Ice Age: The Meltdown is a very interesting movie with various aspects including story, plot, and animation that is comfortable to watch. The movie not only presents a fun adventure of prehistoric animals but also slips in important messages about climate change  that is happening on Earth.

In addition, friendship becomes the core story in this movie, supporting and protecting each other in the danger of globidens. This message is conveyed very lightly and easily understood from the storyline.  

To be honest, this sequel to Ice Age made me curious about the continued friendship of the 3 prehistoric creatures, and a little romance between Manny and Ellie. This touch of romance adds warmth and tenderness to an otherwise action-packed and adventurous story.

Each character has their weaknesses and strengths, which are well displayed through interactions on their journey. Manny, with his stubbornness, and a bit of an arrogant look. Sid, is a clumsy and insecure character, while Diego, looks brave but turns out to have a fear of seawater.

The drama in this movie is not too heavy, but this makes it easier to be accepted by audiences from all walks of life. The light drama with a touch of climate change issues adds dimension to the story without reducing the fun and excitement of this movie.

The movie is able to maintain a good balance between character development and maintaining the characteristics of each character. The character growth experienced by each character gives a new dimension to the story without sacrificing consistency. 

Compared to the first movie, this one adds a more mature and in-depth element by introducing the issue of climate change. Even though it’s still entertaining, it makes the story more meaningful and relevant.

Ice Age: The Meltdown is a testament to the enduring power of animated storytelling. Among the many animated classics, this movie has carved its place and become one of the eternal treasures in my heart.
