Penguins of Madagascar is a passably entertaining time at the multiplex, with inspired moments offered by the four lead penguins.

It's actually really funny. It reminded me of the first Naked Gun movie.
January 25, 2019
A clever, rapid-fire barrage of pop culture references and dizzying one-liners, all delivered with a self-awareness that only adds to the fun.

Sorpresivamente, Pingüinos de Madagascar es una entretenida y reconfortante animación que a fin de cuentas termina siendo más astuta de lo que realmente parece ser y muy superior a cualquier entrega de Madagascar.

The results are usually deft, paced fast as coherence will allow and often very, very cute.

The pace is brisk - frenzied, even - the animation top-notch and the script is full of witticisms, puns ... and there are jokes aplenty for the kiddies as well as belly-busters for the grown-ups.

Thank goodness, the film-makers did not try to make sense of this spin-off from the Madagascar series by making a prequel or sequel. What they have produced is a glorious non-sequitur.

Directed by Eric Darnell and Simon J Smith, Penguins of Madagascar is relentlessly madcap, happily all over the place, and almost awesome in its refusal to adhere to any coherence.

This movie can babysit your kids! And as the reviewer often recommends in regards to movies such as this, a good adult nap in a cineplex is an awesome thing.

Thoroughly enjoyable and unreservedly recommended.

Not a bad way to kill a few hours these holidays.

There's nothing of substance here, but there needn't be. It's just pure escapist fun, wittily delivered.
May 25, 2015
From its icily satirical start to its madcap end, this is more than a snappy, silly spin-off. It takes those cutest widdle critters, then cannon-fires them through a story cannily undercutting the cuteness factor on which so much animal animation relies.

Stamped out by the Hollywood animation cookie cutter, the film will no doubt please kids but, one dares suggest, adults might find the film's non-stop movement and noise somewhat tiring this time around.
January 8, 2015
Penguins of Madagascar is so verbally dexterous - and the animation by contrast little more than bright and familiar - that this could well be an adult spoof hiding out in a flick supposedly made for primary school students.
January 7, 2015
Very young children will find it hard to resist if they haven't seen too much of the Penguins posse until now.
January 7, 2015
The jokes are never-ending and multilayered, calculated so that adults do not get bored -- which is important, because they buy the tickets. It's all bolted together with precision and good humour, although not much whimsy.
January 1, 2015
Continues the Madagascar franchise trend of being pleasantly average.
December 28, 2014
The locations - including Fort Knox, Venice and Shanghai - evoke James Bond movies, while the byplay between the Penguins and The North Wind calls to mind a host of action-movie conventions.
December 24, 2014
In Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith's Penguins of Madagascar, irreverence is something of an understatement.
