Hilarious and very well done to play on the genre
21 April 2014 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

At the back of the fridge the ice is coming; the other foodstuffs watch on in helpless horror as it claims its first victim in orange, who had rolled too far back on the shelf to be safe. They know it will continue and will come for them all though, but ham sandwich has a plan if only he can bring everyone together again (since technically he has already brought many of them together to make himself).

Meltdown is a very funny short film. It plays like a disaster movie, so we have the tragic losses, the heroic leader, the frightened one and the dramatic moments of hope. It should also be noted that it plays out like a very good disaster movie and the film understands the conventions of this genre so that it can use them to good effect here. I was chuckling throughout at the absurdity of the genre being done with the contents of a fridge. The script is also loaded with good material, in particular a Deep Blue Sea moment that caught me unawares. So many of the lines and characters are well written and funny that it is hard not to love it.

In terms of the delivery the style of filming with quick cuts and action shots also aids the feeling of the genre. I am not sure how it was done in terms of animating the characters, but this is very effect to give them character – essentially they are puppets but the movements are very "natural" if you can forgive me saying that about things like jam jars etc. Anyway, Meltdown is very cleverly done; it knows its genre and uses this well to produce a film that manages to be absurd and funny while also working surprisingly well as a disaster movie too.
