Movie Info

Alex (Ben Stiller), Morty (Chris Rock) and other zoo animals find a way to escape from Madagascar when the penguins reassemble a wrecked airplane. The precariously repaired craft stays airborne just long enough to make it to the African continent. There the New Yorkers encounter members of their own species for the first time. Africa proves to be a wild place, but Alex and company wonder if it is better than their Central Park home.

Audience Reviews for Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

    amusing sequel but without the supporting king julian and penguin characters it'd be the lion king with a dance off and death holes for giraffes.

    some fun characters but the story is super thin. I expect too much from movies but having a paper thin plot isn't asking too much. good but definitely not great.

    Fun and lighthearted, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is an adventurous and entertaining family film. This time Alex and his friends crash-land in an African wildlife preserve while trying to get back to New York in a makeshift airplane. The cast from the first film return, and are joined by Alec Baldwin and Bernie Mac. The animation's quite good, and is full of detail and vibrant colors. And the comedy's especially sharp, with humor that can be enjoyed by all ages. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa delivers an exciting animated film that's full of laughs.

    The sequel ain't half bad, but it isn't as good as the first film. I liked the little jokes and charming characters, but the script could really use some improvement.
