| Original Score: B
Kids will love the wisecracking penguins, industrious monkeys and feisty, survivalist grandma, who packs quite a wallop with her handbag.
| Original Score: 3/5
Doesn't mess with a good thing. That means many prankish penguins, loony lemurs and that "move it, move it" song, all over again.
| Original Score: 3/4
In a post WALL-E world, it's hard not to be slightly underwhelmed by Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.
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.
| Original Score: 80/100
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.
| Original Score: C+
...relies more heavily than ever on friendship, love, and family relationships. Who can complain about that?
| Original Score: 6/10
Punches its key themes of friendship, togetherness and family amid a hyperactive swirl of jokes, musical numbers and physical gags.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
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.
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.
| Original Score: 4/5
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.
[Sua] irreverência só (surge) realmente quando os personagens secundários seqüestram a história.
It that has all the strengths of the original. It also has all of the weaknesses
A pleasing and pretty enough re-run, just that bit diminished.
This is one of those rare occasions where the sequel is better than the original - but only by a whisker.
| Original Score: 3/6
Not quite on a par with the original but not bad as sequels go.
