Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

After being unwillingly shipped from a New York Zoo to Madagascar in the first movie, Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe and Gloria the Hippo are on their way back to the Big Apple when they crash land in their native Africa. Initially delighted to be amongst their kinsfolk at last, they soon find the wild Africa a little different than expected.

Lively and quite funny without being obnoxious, this follow-up smoothly mixes the original's New York Zoo escapees with a number of engaging new characters.

Good enough in patches to make its distracting star turns, storybook clichés and stereotypes harder to take than they would be in a less enjoyable movie.

This is a brighter, more engaging film than the original "Madagascar."

Cartoons can get away with being serviceable and skillful without much creativity since they have an endlessly renewing audience. "Mad 2" surfs along on such waves, entertaining youngsters while mildly amusing adults.

Let’s not lose sight of what's really been accomplished here. Alex and Marty – just like Batman and Robin, Fred and Barney, and Snagglepuss – are welcome additions to the gay animation pantheon.

Not very impressed by the story. Graphics are good. There have been better ones. The Kum Fu Panda one was much better.

I saw its yesterday in the Imax Auckland, and yeah what should I say, maybe awesome (with O) is right word to describe it best. The movie should be known as "Madagascar Madagascar" because the name is so nice you say it twice. (Insider). So folks go to the cinema, and if you can watch it in the Imax its every cent worth !

Madagascar 2 has got to be the best movie I have taken my kids to, hands down. It beats the first one by a long shot and is a movie guaranteed the whole family will enjoy. Its cast of voices add to the hillarity of the entire film, which had myself and my kids seeing it through until the end (which is definitely not the case for other films in the comedy...
