Penguins of Madagascar (2014)
Genre: Animation, Comedy, Adventure
This is a fairly enjoyable movie following on from the success of the Madagascar film series that the entire family can enjoy 🙂 . I have to admit, while watching this film you do feel like it is created just to spin more money from the previous successful movies. However, it is fairly good and can keep the majority captivated enough 🙂 . The beginning sequence with the penguins as hatchlings’ (and how they all meet) is a very new and interesting to see. It is probably one of the best moments in this film as it sets the relationships well and builds that drive too. I also loved the North Wind team who were actually all cool, the seal was adorable and the wolf “Classified” is voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch 😀 . I really do like the penguins and the majority is very entertaining and funny with its humorous dialogue. Children will love this movie more and those who like the Madagascar movies in general 🙂 . However, the third act of the movie (after the reveal and when the bad guy is winning) was weaker than the beginning and middle. The jokes struggled, the story weaker and the last 20 minutes kind of dragged. Plus the whole reason for the bad guy was weak in general and not very unique. Also some of you will find incognisances if you remember the penguins from the original movie. Overall, a decent film that will create laughs and keep children entertained 🙂 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 2.5 Stars out of 5!
