The third entry in the Madagascar franchise finds the tightknit group of animals joining a traveling circus in order to get back home. Noah Baumbach provides the script, with Eric Darnell handling director duties. Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Sacha Baron Cohen reprise the voice roles, with Frances McDormand stepping in as the villain. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
I am a huge "Madagascar" fan. My favorite characters are the penguins and, yes, they are in this movie. Really the only character that is not in this movie is that old lady who beat up Alex all the time ("bad kitty"), but she is replaced by a mean old lady police officer in London. The movie has a surprise ending that even I did not expect from it. Trust me, this is one to check out if you like animated movies. It will not bore you. The voice-over cast is great. The plot is great. 5 stars from me. I am going to purchase this movie.
This movie deserves an Oscar nomination for art direction, it is the best of the trilogy, funny as always, but very innovative, seen it twice with the kids at the movies. The 3D version is a "most see". Great summer movie for the kids; they liked it better than "Brave".
This movie was slow moving in parts, they could have gotten to Europe and the US a lot faster. It appeared that they needed to fill the movie with something so they dragged out the scenes involving the circus. I agree, the kids liked it much better than Brave. I think its time to end the Madagascar series.
It was too silly - stacking the penguins and other animated characters with the Lion, hippopotamus, zebra and Giraffe looking for the obvious - America! - was just overloaded and had no rhythm to it - or even caring about them succeeding their goals.
Iwould love to say that I wonder if this movie will ever get bad,I just love watching them and like the rest of the movie's this one was just as GREAT!!! I'm not a kid but I could watch this movie all day long with the kids!!
