Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa/Penguins 2 Disc

  • Summary: Let me set the record straight. I don’t like to “move it move it”. That song and irritating beat is one of the most obnoxious sounds I’ve heard in a film in a long time. Unfortunately, not only is it included in this film as well, but it’s also repeated over and over again during the menu options. I’ve never been more motivated to make my selection this quickly before. You might want to familiarize yourself with the options presented for this film via my handy review.

Madagascar Escape 2 Africa

Family Friendly Gaming
17 February 2009
  • Excerpt: I missed the first Madagascar movie, so I was curious to see what this franchise is all about. The lost animal (lion, hippo, zebra, and giraffe) are still lost. This time they get to see where they come from, Alex even gets to meet his parents. Reuniting a family is something that goes over really with Family Friendly Gaming. The lemur king is one of the strangest characters this reviewer has seen in any movie, especially an animated one.

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (Blu-Ray)

DVD Verdict
9 February 2009
  • Excerpt: The intrepid New York giants Alex (Ben Stiller), Gloria (Jada Pinkett Smith), Melman (David Schwimmer), and Marty (Chris Rock) are back and ready to return home from their experience in "the wild." With an over-the-top lemur send off and the penguins at the controls of King Julian's (Sacha Baron Cohen) plane, they set out to leave the island and return home. Not a bad start to a promising sequel. One problem. Ever seen The Lion King ?

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa / The Penguins Of Madagascar

DVD Verdict
6 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Borrowing a little too heavily from Disney's The Lion King and cramming far too many storylines in 90 minutes, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa gets by on exceptional characterizations, great performances, and playing up to an audience already hungry for more animal antics. The Fab Four—Alex, Marty, Gloria, and Melman—are back in action. After a brief vacation in Madagascar, New York's finest are hopping a plane back home…or so they think.

Review: Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

  • Excerpt: I didn't think much of Madagascar, which had an unfocused story, no internal logic, and only a few laughs, scattered mostly among the minor characters.

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Film Guide
19 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Reviewing kids or family movies can be a hard task for reviewers. We get to see a wide range of movies and we typically have our favourite genres. But then we get invited to a screening of a kids movie, and we accept, because we have kids that would kill us if we didn’t. So we sit through the movie and enjoy it, but obviously not as much as our children do. Animated kids movies have an even harder time with reviewers, well at least with me.

  • Excerpt: Een goede animatiefilm moet zowel voor kids als voor hun ouders entertaining zijn. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa doet wel degelijk zijn best om beide doelgroepen te bedienen. De film doet dit echter op zo'n onhandige manier, dat op elk moment één van beiden zich verveelt.

  • Excerpt: Голливудский Мадагаскар, похоже, один из последних островков стабильности в нашем зыбком мире. Что бы ни творилось с ценами на нефть и недвижимость, зрители всегда могут быть уверены: их пригласят воспользоваться услугами компании «Пингвин Эйр» и отправят куда-нибудь далеко, в мир, полный приключений, где при некоторой сноровке можно взять милости у природы, поучаствовать в героическом возвращении диким зверям воды, понаблюдать за тем, как король лемуров бойко руководит...
