Animated Interest

The Penguins of Madagascar Nothing like ‘Mr Poppers Penguins’ at all. It was like watching extended pieces of the ‘Madagascar' movie/s and the animated tv series thrown together to make this entire film. Gives a little prequel info and highlights more of the background. Enjoyable to a point and is a good team movie for the kids, much like ‘Big Hero 6’,...

I should rent it instead of watching it on big screen. A total drag.

The graceful camerawork, precise editing and high-quality animation still can’t disguise the lack of imagination that went into the overall conception...

The film is frantic and silly and our biggest gripe is that all the penguins look the same.

The lack of originality is offset by sheer silliness, including Classified and Skipper's Abbott and Costello-style argument over whether there's a long I in "diversion." The word fits the movie.

An injection of sugar direct to the pineal gland and woe betide any parent who tries to get their children to take a nap after seeing it.

What Penguins Of Madagascar needs is a roomful of ruthless editors to take jokes out of the script...

All that manic energy ultimately proves to be more exhausting than exhilarating.

The silliest spin-off this side of Elektra, and lots of fun with it.
