Review of Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Permanent Link by bootlegga on Thu Nov 06, 2008 5:24 pm

Longing to return to the Central Park Zoo, Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe and Gloria the Hippo set off in a repaired plane. Of course King Julien and his sidekick Marice tag along for fun. When it runs out of fuel, the plane crashes inside a wildlife refuge in Kenya, full of lions, zebras, giraffes, and hippos. While the penguins and monkeys attempt repairs, everyone is faced with a choice; is it better here or at the zoo?

All the same characters are back for the sequel. Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Jada Pinkett all reprise their roles in this animated movie. Once again, a crisis involving Alex ensues and their friendship is tested. It is much of the same as the first movie, with arguably more humour and fun thrown into the mix. Once again, the penguins steal the show, with wisecracks and gags. Fortunately, they are not relegated to a secondary role as they were in the first movie.

All in all, this was an enjoyable movie and should appeal to those who liked the first, mostly children. Luckily as Dreamworks did with Shrek, they’ve thrown in enough adult humour to keep the parents interested too.

Just another happy Canuckistanian living under the so-called US security umbrella...yes, I'm a sarcastic bastard.
