Once Madagascar 3 starts focusing on being a kids' movie, it's really quite cute.

For a frantic, action-packed 80-odd minutes, it seldom puts a foot, paw or cloven hoof wrong.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted may arrive with low expectations, but it's a pleasant surprise, sending its character barrelling across continents for a zippy, engaging 90-minute adventure.

Sheer manic animated anarchy... It's as if the cool, smooth nonsense of the penguins' outrageous schemes -- yes, they're back too -- were allowed to take over the entire film...

The first-class 3D animation is better than the cliche-ridden script.

Instead of developing the characters or situations for comedy gold, the filmmakers instead just crank up the chaos. So while some scenes are both funny and visually impressive, this second sequel is simply too inane.

This is animation that never just goes through the motions but glories in its feats and so, almost certainly, will you.

It may lack a little in charm and warmth, but the technical brilliance and decent use of 3D go some way towards compensating for the dimensions that the film otherwise lacks.

It is a disarmingly daft, anarchic romp that should leave younger children screaming with delight.

The action zips along, the visuals dazzle and the gags zing. The best in the series so far.

Eye-popping and bounding with energy, this is fun for audiences of all ages.

Here is a family movie from which absolutely nothing is expected, and yet it's one of the week's best releases: a muscular, potent and very funny film.

You don't have to be a child of four to enjoy this series, but it helps.

"The best of the Madagascar films" might not be the most ringing endorsement ever committed to newsprint, but DreamWorks Animation has finally found the franchise's groove in this pyrotechnic third instalment.

Easily the best film of the franchise so far, thanks to a witty script, colourful new characters, lively animation, inspired direction and some impressive 3D work, not to mention some exceptional comic timing.

It's good to see that with a decent, fast-paced plot and some witty lines, the quality and entertainment value of the films has been maintained.
