Runtime: 89 mins Release Date: 06 Nov 2008
Well, so far "Madagascar" is two-for-two in the laughs department. This is just as good, if not better, than the first film.It's another good example of the "new" last 10 years kind of animated feature film that adults can enjoy just as much as the kids. In some cases, perhaps like this one, adults would laugh even more because many of the gags might over the kids' heads. I'm not talking sexual innuendos, just references to things older people could recognize.It isn't just the writing that is excellent; the artwork is spectacular, especially on Blu-Ray. <more>
The colors and the detail are just amazing! More than once, my jaw dropped at what I was seeing on the TV screen. Like the first Madagascar, the high-def images are truly spectacular.The combination of humor, drama, family and friendship ties and romance all make this a wonderful animated movie and the 90 minutes zip by.
Hilarious!!! A thousand times better than the first movie!! (by shaimaa_87)
I generally love animated movies but the first Madagascar did nothing for me. This sequel was absolutely hilarious!! From start to end it will keep you entertained. I feel as though the sequel caters to an older audience as well as the kiddies, which makes it way more enjoyable. The king as well as the penguins just stole the show in my opinion and made the movie a lot more adult friendly. This is definitely one of my favourite movies of '09 so far. The comedy was spot on and story had a lot more heart than the first one. I wont spoil the movie but its definitely a must see and believe <more>
me.. the worst part is when the movie ends its that good!!! 10/10
This sequel was better than the first (by Luigi Di Pilla)
The positive reviews I have read matched exactly my high expectations and everybody that I know liked it too.I watched Madagascar 2 with my wife and my six old year son ad we had great fun. My son asked me at the end when the DVD will come out because he wanted to see it soon again.The story was even better than the first. It was much more emotional and the dialogs were really cool combined with lot of jokes. I think every character role was developed much more better here.The action scenes are well executed and looked all real. Then there are two or three well packed clear messages to save <more>
our planet from the extinction of certain animals and our ecological system.This is why I rate it 10/10. For children and adults a very entertaining and relaxing cartoon.
A perfect sequel; totally lived up to the first (by Dragoneyed363)
I was really excited about seeing the sequel to Madagascar, because I really loved the first and thought it was one of the best animations of the decade, regardless of how underrated it is, and this looked just as good, and in my opinion it almost was. Both of them are excellent films that are nothing but fun and are super energetic from the moment they come on screen, and this just made me appreciate the first even more than I already did, and am even looking forward to a third installment. The quality of this film might seem more fast paced and careless, but it is just as lovable. When it <more>
started up, I was immediately sucked in, and I never became uninterested and it never stopped entertaining, because they did an excellent job at keeping your attention just like the first. There were some parts in the movie where I felt as if they tried too hard to please the audience and then others it got a little dumb and boring, but overall I laughed insanely and was very pleased. When it was over I wanted to watch it again. It's a great sequel to a great movie and I enjoyed watching it as much as the first, as I have said. Some hilarious scenes like the plane crash, any scene with Moto Moto and of course Mort are lovable too. It's story is touching and fantastic as well, go see it.
Thank God the sequel to 2005's "Madagascar" turned out to be thoroughly enjoyable. Part Twos are usually scary territory, but I daresay this one outdid its predecessor in terms of storyline and packing in the laughs.It starts where Madagascar One ended: Central Park Zoo animals Alex the Lion Ben Stiller , Marty the Zebra Chris Rock , Melman the Giraffe David Schwimmer and Gloria the Hippo Jada Pinkett Smith find themselves still stranded and eager to leave the island. The penguins have built a plane and successfully take off for NY when they crash land in the African <more>
wilderness. The NY Zoo animals try to fit in with their wild counterparts and encounter situations that challenge their friendship.Of course King Julien Sacha Baron Cohen , the surprisingly scene-stealing granny and the rest of the supporting cast provide added hilarity and wit to almost every repartee. Even more welcome was the relevant uplifting theme, which served as an effective sub-plot, an important message delivered in a fun, non-preachy way. If they intend to rollout a Part Three, this would be a tough one to beat!
I am not a big fan of cartoons but a friend forced me to watch this. I use IMDb as a true barometer to judge films and so was a little disappointed to see a below average rating for Madagascar 2. I will give it a 9/10. It had everything that a cartoon movie could ask for - animals with crazy human-looking faces, hilarious dialogues, simple story and finally some extra ordinary animation. The story is simple enough for every age group to be involved. I was particularly impressed with the reasoning behind the water problem in the jungle.Ben Stiller and David Schwimmer's voices deserve <more>
special mention.I haven't seen Madagascar 1 but my friend told me that this is a worthy and better sequel. Go for it!!!
Rarely have I seen animated family sequel movie that's as good or better than its predecessor but speaking as a movie freak who didn't like the first installment, I gotta say I'm very much entertained by MADAGASCAR: ESCAPE 2 Africa and it way funnier than the original movie. Dreamworks has a habit of doing this what it lacks in its story and overall animation Pixar still rules in those departments! it makes up for it in its sense of humor. This is the movie that every age can enjoy and it has only a very, very few silly, lame moments but for the most part, you just got to move <more>
it, move it! The whole team is back, it doesn't take long for you to remember what each character is all about, there's no need for re-introduction but there is a bunch of new characters thrown in to the den without having to take us in unnecessary complication of having to understand what they are. The concept is simple and the jokes are funny. Here you see all the characters stranded in Africa and meet a their own kind. It's the freedom they've always wanted but don't really want at the same time. They have trouble fitting in and getting in touch with their heritage, all the while friendship and feelings are being put to the test resulting in an exciting adventure at the end that brings them closer together again. Kids will love it, Parents will be glad about it, and the rest of us will find it to be very amusing.MADAGASCAR: ESCAPE 2 Africa will feel like too short of a movie, but that's also something that I can appreciate because I don't think it has any intention of trying to be all Oscar worthy, it's nothing more than telling a light, enjoyable story with good moral value lesson and that's about it. If the running time were any longer, it would lose some of its target audience. Hands down, without dragging this review any more than it has to, the best part of this movie once again, are the penguins! Those dudes are hardcore gangsters and freakin' hilarious! They should have their own spin-off, stand-alone movie, just about them scheming something deviant and mission impossible-esquire. I could watch them work together and hear their smartass, cocky remarks/attitude about a thousand more times and they'll still crack me up. If you find no reason to watch this movie, then at least watch it to check out those awesome penguins.
This movie really will give you a good laugh. It is about a new adventure of the four friends: Alex the lion, Melman the giraffe, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo. On the trip back to New York, they had an air crash and came to Africa instead. There, they found their roots and also came across some difficulties. In this movie, there are many supporting roles. And among them, the four little penguins played an important part and even covered the other main roles for their genius and humor. From the very beginning, the four penguins spoofed the DreamWorks icon. As for their popularity, the <more>
DreamWorks even planned to make a film about the Madagascar Penguins. I'm really looking forward to it. In this movie, the film makers pictured us an amazing Africa with wild animals and beautiful landscapes. The visual effects are pretty good and impressing. And I like the theme song "Move It", really making me full of energy and feel the desire of dancing with the characters. The last scene when Marty said that "Love has no boundary", I can't agree more. And I think that this does not only apply to love between lovers but also apply to love between friends and family. All in all, this is quite a funny movie and worth watching.
Despite no air conditioning and several screaming babies in the theater, I thoroughly enjoyed "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa". Even though according to my bud Ron, "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" had 37% more penguins, I was initially unconvinced. Directors Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath's "Madagascar 2" proves far more than the broad children's animated feature. "Madagascar 2" has a great story of love and family by Etan Cohenmuch better than the original story in "Madagascar". "Madagascar 2" is also hysterical. When lion Alex <more>
Ben Stiller and bud zebra Marty Chris Rock attempt to demolish a dam, Alex asks, "Do you have any dynamite?" Marty Rock wryly exclaims, "Snap! I just used my last stick " To their credit Directors Darnell and McGrath expertly balance funny and sentimental. Visually, "Madagascar 2" is breathtaking particularly in its sweeping African vistas. Hans Zimmer's musical score is equally spectacular.At the beginning of Cohen's narrative we discover the origins of lion cub Alex, and his fated path to the Central Park Zoo. Following the logical conclusion of "Madagascar" our heroes Alex Stiller , Marty Rock , hippo Gloria Jada Pinkett Smith , and giraffe Melman David Schwimmer are flying back to New York aboard the airplane piloted by head penguin Mort hysterical Andy Richter and his crew. Along for the ride are Lemur King Julian comic genius Sacha Baron Cohen and Maurice funny Cedric the Entertainer . Predictably the plane never makes it to New York, instead crash landing in the heart of Africa. But before crashing Melman proclaims his unrequited love, "Gloria I love you!" to a snoring Gloria, much to the amazement of Alex and Marty.Alex is soon reunited with his long lost father Zuba the late Bernie Mac and his Mom sweet Sherrie Shepherd . Zuba proudly welcomes Alex to the pride. But not everyone rejoices, particularly rival lion Makunga the great Alec Baldwin . The slithery and devious Makunga Baldwin schemes the demise of Zuba and Alex. The civilized and domesticated Alex finds he is soon out of his element, and Zuba begins to wonder if indeed his son is really destined to become the next Lion King. Here the story evolves unexpectedly into a poignant tale of great expectations and unconditional love. Mac brilliantly captures the spirit of Zuba, and he and Stiller have amazing chemistry. For comic relief while Melman yearns for Gloria's affections, Gloria is attracted to alpha male hippo Moto Moto Will.I.Am . Mort Richter and his penguin crew squelch a chimp labor uprising in their quest to rebuild their airplane. And of course there is tough Grandma kicking some serious butt. Stiller, Rock, Smith, and Schwimmer are all natural and fit comfortably into their roles. Alec Baldwin and Sacha Baron Cohen demonstrate their comic prowess and take no prisoners."Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" works with its surprisingly touching story of family blended with its sense of the hysterical and absurd. Gangster penguins piloting the friendly skies are completely hilarious and ridiculous. Mostly, "Madagascar 2" works because we care about their characters, and we have a vested interest in things turning out well. "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" is enjoyable and definitely worth seeing.
