Critic Reviews for Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
This is that rare thing: a franchise that grows more winning with each instalment.
From time to time the improbable occurs: A sequel outdoes its original.
The screenplay, by Eric Darnell and Noah Baumbach, churns out the snappy witticisms with admirable creative gusto, but it whizzes along at such a frenetic pace that you'll probably miss half of them.
A fun and fast family entertainment.
The clever lines and themes of friendship and finding home are almost completely overwhelmed here by the breathless pace and sensory overload...
Audience Reviews for Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
This useless sequel has a very great beginning but all the rest simply doesn't work. It fails to engage, fails to be amusing, fails in every lousy attempt at humor, and after a while you are left with something that is so much more irritating than enjoyable.
Part three of the animated adventure takes the somewhat simple initial premise and turns it into an action adventure in the circus milieu. That doesn't make even the slightest sense and has lost any ties to the real world, especially considering the insane amount of stunts, gags and hyperbole used throughout the first act. It doesn't help that the villain belongs to the most irritating and annoying ones of recent kids films. Of course everything's beautifully animated and there is plenty to see and laugh about, especially during the neon-colored finale. Kids will enjoy this, adults might shake their head at the chaos.
Well that escalated quickly! "Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted" comes out of nowhere and surpasses the first two films by a mile. This time, picking up right where the previous leaves off, these animals end up crash landing on Europe and must work with a group of circus animals to win their way back to New York and come full circle. This is a very well thougt out film with many more laughs than the previous instalments. The voice casting is great once again and I received even more than what I wanted more of in the second film. Sure, there are some cliches sprinkled throughout, but what makes them so clever is that they are almost always acknowledged by the dialogue. "Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted" solitifies the reason for "Madagascar" existing in the first place! Great, great fun!
