It's aimed squarely at the kiddos and the kiddos should enjoy it.

It looked remarkably cheap for 2008.

Why bother spending the majority of the sequel's time on the main characters from the first film? That's a good question and one for which the movie provides no explanation.

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

Two stripes and you're out!

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.

This much-anticipated sequel is a frankly disappointing piece of opportunism, with a non-plot which shamelessly rips off The Lion King.

It's for children, rather than families. Adults can safely avoid.

The same as Madagascar 1 only louder and longer. Zoo animals escape into the wild. The only one you would want to spend time with is Sacha Baron Cohen's lemur, and even then only if you could bring your own script.

The visual invention and draughtsmanship are mightily impressive; a shame the drama's a bit of a bore.
December 5, 2008
The biggest draw here isn't the sub-sitcom schtick but the super-hi-definition CGI panoramas - make sure you see this in Imax, where your eyeballs have enough room to roam over the impressive wide vista bits.

Barring direct-to-DVD Disney sequels, the first Madagascar was one of the worst animated flicks of all time. The bad news is Escape 2 Africa reunites the same cast and directors that made the first DreamWorks flick such a turkey.

Little more than a greatest-hits rehash of the first movie.

They did another one, and probably better than the original, but I'm simply tolerant.

Nothing to phone home about.

Fans of the 2005 original will find this sequel more of the same. So will the original's detractors -- it was lousy then and it's lousy now.

The upside, I suppose, is that we'll all forget about it in a few weeks.
