If you weren't particularly enamored with the first one, chances are this isn't gonna change your opinion on the Madagascar cast

Kids will love the wisecracking penguins, industrious monkeys and feisty, survivalist grandma, who packs quite a wallop with her handbag.

Doesn't mess with a good thing. That means many prankish penguins, loony lemurs and that "move it, move it" song, all over again.

In a post WALL-E world, it's hard not to be slightly underwhelmed by Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.

Apollo Guide

I am no great fan of sequels, and am especially suspicious of movies that try to cross-over between adult and child audiences. But this one won me over early on.

Energetic, fast-paced, and pumped full of zany humor...sure to entertain the younguns and be fairly painless for their guardians. [Blu-ray]

There's amusement in this jungle jumble but "Happy Feet" left me happier.

The characters seem better developed this time and the story lines are stronger.

...relies more heavily than ever on friendship, love, and family relationships. Who can complain about that?

Definitely a step down from the first one, but you should not let that stop you from seeing a film with great humor and animation.

Duplicates the original's inoffensive, middle of the road mediocrity.

The Age (Australia)

Punches its key themes of friendship, togetherness and family amid a hyperactive swirl of jokes, musical numbers and physical gags.

MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The pop culture references, the dance numbers and the in-jokes we enjoyed in the first film are here for parents and kids alike, as is the irreverent humour.

At the Movies (Australia)

The animation is as breathtakingly beautiful as before and if anything, the sequel is funnier and sharper than the original thanks to a witty screenplay.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Among the Looney Tuniest of recent computer-animated features -- the anatomy-distorting slapstick, wacky wordplay and surreal throwaway gags are nonstop.

It's a very handsome production, and a pretty funny one, too, which will keep audiences of all ages -- except perhaps the most cynical -- thoroughly entertained.

Whatever else I felt about the movie, this is good animation. The colours are extraordinary, the backgrounds stunning.
