Madagascar Escape 2 Africa

Last Tuesday thanks to Nuffnang and KY, I went to the screening of Madagascar 2. I didn't watch the first one, that is fine because there's some flashback at the beginning that summarized what happened in Madagascar 1.

The story starts with the gang Alex the Lion (Ben Stiller), Marty the Zebra (Chris Rock), Melman the Giraffe (David Schwimmer), Gloria the Hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith) and the penguins planning to go back to New York with an old aeroplane that was fixed up by the penguins. In the first film, they reached Madagascar in a ship.

King Julien sending off the gang.

They weren't able to make it all the way to New York because the aeroplane crashed into Africa. The gang then found themselves in a reserve, which they all came from. Then the adventure starts. With the normal friendship, and family theme that you'll find in most animated feel good movie. At first there will be misunderstanding between friends and of course later in the end it will get resolved.

The reaction of Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria after the plane crashed.

I found that there is another message in this movie is that how human destroy the natural habitat of animals just for our own convenience. Ah, we should be more enviromental friendly. Stop using plastic bag :p

This is quite an entertaining movie minus the cliché. Which movie don't have cliché nowadays. There's a few very funny scene that I tried very hard not to laugh out loudly. Especially scenes with penguins. Peeps that seen a movie in the same cinema as me will know how loud I laugh. LOL.

I don't know about you but these guys are my favourite. The penguins rawks yo!

My friend Sheila told me that she like the first one better. Well, I won't know because like I've written at the beginning, I haven't watch the first one. Anyone got the DVD? Malaysia released date for Madagascar 2 is 13th of November. This coming Thursday.

Rating: 3.5/5

Madagascar Escape 2 Africa after ace age it was the best animation movie for me. And for sure for most of the people very few dream characters like Alex. What I like about the movie
Madagascar Escape 2 Africa was it built open its story. Not much action added apart from the basic story. Picture quality of the movie was out standing. It was the movie any body would love to fall in love with. I saw the movie online with which favors me superior entertainment.
