It has been a long wait. 4 years it is. Yes, everyone has waited 4 years before this second installment is back on the big screen. Scrat, the cute little squirrel with his every precious acorn. With this character alone, it manage to drive everyone to the cinema. Haha…. well, I must say it is pretty good. Although he is not the main cast but still manage to get all the limelight. Ah…. good… just so good.
Yes, at this second installment, it’s all about the ice age melting. Yeap, no thanks to global warming. The ices is melting and all the animals are in a panic mode. Yeah… as per previous movie, Diego, Manny and Sid is set to travel to find this big boat (yeah.. sorta like Noah’s Ark) Why? Erm… well… coz they are living in a valley. It’s like a bowl sorta thing. When filled with water, everything drowns.
In the whole journey, Manny is being sad because everyone kept talking about him being the last mammoth. Well.. well.. everything soon change when he met Ellie. Yeap, another female mammoth. However, she is a mammoth that assumes she is a possum. With all the funny gestures and actions along the way. Yeah… I was laughing like crazy when I saw the possums doing the Robert Deniro’s gesture made famous in ‘Meet the Fockers’ movie. It was simply amazing.
I also love how Sid says that they will evolve into sea creatures and he ask Diego to call him Squid. Hahaha…
Well… obviously there are some dramas here and there along the way. Yeah, Sid who always hunger for attention and respect finally got what he wanted. But well, I guess he din want it anymore coz he finally knows that it would cost him his life and well… he miss Diego *awww……*
Although this show manage to make me laugh alot, I find it sorta lack of substance. As in, I find the story somehow is weaker and there isn’t much thing to tell about unlike the previous movie. It was sort of a long travel experience. What is even worst, the two who is suppose to be the baddie in the movie… erm… I find that their existance in the movie can almost be ignored.
I dunno… they just din kick or punch hard enough to leave an impact in the movie. It’s quite strange. But well… looking at scrat running here and there to find his acorn is worthy enough.
