Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted REVIEW

Madagascar 3 was an entertaining circus extravaganza. Your favorite safari friends Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria all knocked it out of the park again.

The storyline of Madagascar 3 was laid out from the very beginning of the movie. First, we’ll do this and then that. This made it easy for all ages to follow along the crazy ride. This also eased the burden of trying to follow the story and instead allowed you to relax and simply enjoy the humor and bright colors.

What I love about the Madagascar movies is that you can watch them time and time again while always hearing a new “one-liner”. This movie is loaded with quick wit and fast comedy and you’ll catch something new every time you watch it again.

The 3D animation itself was top notch as you would expect from DreamWorks Animation and meshes well with the other movies in the series. This movie was visual candy. With an abundance of bright colors bursting on the screen left and right your sweet tooth will probably start aching after 93 minutes.

At one point in the movie, I found myself thinking, “What in the world is going on?”

There are a series of sequences where the screen is black and the characters are flying around with fireworks and other bright flashes of color going off. I found myself being pretty critical of these scenes but when I took a chill pill I felt better. These scenes are mostly just an artistic expression of the circus and it’s an animated film so I shouldn’t be surprised that they pushed the envelope. It just felt so random when I was watching the film that it bugged me enough to over analyze the scene.

Madagascar 3 was pretty awesome! The animation was great and held its own in the trilogy. The all-star cast of voices was terrific as usual and pretty impressive when you see how quickly the characters interact with one another and spit out jokes. The Madagascar collection is one you’ll be quoting with your friends for a long time and one you’ll want on your movie shelf at home.

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted top movie star voices are Ben Stiller, Sacha Baron Cohen, David Schwimmer, Frances McDormand, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, John DiMaggio, Cedric the Entertainer, Jessica Chastain, Bryan Cranston, Martin Short, Paz Vega, and more. Featured Animation ranks this movie a 3.8 on a scale from 1 to 5.
