SPOILER ALERT: As with all movies that I will be reviewing, readers should note that some important plot points might get revealed in the course of the review........ With ICE AGE: THE MELTDOWN I was pleasantly surprised with the overall film. The addition of Queen Latifah as a woolly mammoth gave the franchise a nice jolt of excitement. The original voices behind the main characters are all back. And in many ways, this movie was more adventurous and exciting than the original, though I think the original had more of a heart. It's a toss up as to which movie is better. In fact, I would have to give them an even split at B-. The CGI is not the quality that we have grown to expect from other recent hits like THE INCREDIBLES and SHREK 2, but the comedic story is what really sells ICE AGE: THE MELTDOWN. .....SEE IT AT THE CINEPLEX OR WAIT FOR THE DVD: SEE IT AT THE CINEPLEX. B-
