Funny and entertaining films
on 3 March 2013
Madagascar is a very good and very funny series for people of all ages.
Because of their upbringing, Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo and Melmen the Giraffe no idea what wild life is really like. And of course, the four penguins. It's Marty's 10th birthday, and he is upset as he dose not even know whether he is ''white with black stripes or black with white stripes''. For his birthday wish, he wishes he can visit the wild, which is friends are amazed at. Mary escapes without the other knowing, but they soon follow the moment they realise he is missing. But they end up shipwrecked in Madagascar, among a bunch of merry lemurs. This film is very good, with a well paced, well written plot and lots of laughs. This film does get somewhat less and less enjoyable as the film goes on. But still, this is still a very good movie with some great laughs.
Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman and other zoo animals, attempt to fly back to Central Park Zoo, but they do not get quite as far as they anticipated; they find a way to escape from Madagascar when the penguins reassemble a wrecked airplane, but 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, and Alex gets a blast from the bast.
Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
Animal pals Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria, having failed two attempts to get back home to New York City, are now hell bent on making it back to Central Park Zoo. But they have to get through Europe without drawing attention to themselves. They are forced to take a detour to Europe to find the penguins and chimps. When French animal-control officer Capitaine Chantel DuBois picks up their scent, they have to hide out in a travelling circus. Whist this film is still somewhat flawed, it is an enjoyable film with even more slapstick laughs.
Overall, I would give all three films 4 stars. None of the movies are entirely flawless, but they are still really good films for both children and adults.
