Attributes: Movie Reviews

Directors: Simon J. Smith and Eric Darnell
Voiced by: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Conrad Vernon, Christopher Knights, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, and Ken Jeong

The fan favourite happy flappers are back with their very own feature film and boy, did they live upto the same on their own! From the youngest movie goer to the oldest, not one single person was quiet, myself included.

We fast forward to one of the closing scenes (that can be seen when you watch Madagascar 3 off the net) of the last film we saw them in. They are busting out of that circus and heading to break into Fort Knox for a little birthday treat for Private. It is there that they run into Agent Classified (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his North Wind team of animal super agents who give Skipper and his crew a run for their high adventure money.

They both have the same mission, apprehending our bad guy - a disgruntled octopus named Dave (John Malkovich). But the drama and the comedy arise from watching these two groups try to work together and simultaneously get in the way of each other’s efforts to find and stop Dave.

The voices of the four penguins remain the same from the Madagascar movies, with Tom McGrath’s Skipper still ringing in my head with its brilliance of idiocracy meets intelligence and sass meets subversiveness. Christopher Knights’ Private gets a little more to work with this time out as he just wants to be a “valuable member of the team” and do a little more than look cute.

It leaves the door open for future escapades (with or without the North Wind!) and all the while it's a self-contained film that works on so many levels.

It looks fantastic and has tons of hilarious and heart warming moments and it also paints itself successfully as a spy spoof with the 'Octopi' named  after celebrities and some hidden James Bond sequences. There is something that each soul out there, regardless of age or place in life, will find amusing, cute, thrilling and top-to-bottom terrific. 

For me, the most treasured and brilliant aspect of the Madagascar movies had always been Skipper, Rico, Kowalski and Private. That’s why I give it 3 SHORS and wholeheartedly recommend that you dive in the world of PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR. Be careful where you place the popcorn, because you might end of spilling it from all the uncontrollable laughter. Cheers.
