“I Like to Move It, Move It”. The animals are back in the third installment of the ‘Madagascar’ series, and to my surprise, the best film in the trilogy in ‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’.
While reviewing all of DreamWorks Animation’s films, I remembered liking the first ‘Madagascar’ film when I was a kid, but that film isn’t as fun as I remembered, and with the second film remembered fondly with its heart and message of friendship, I’ve never seen the third film, and to my surprise, the third film is the best one yet.
The film sees Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman escape from Africa, and see themselves at Monte Carlo, after trying to get the penguins and the monkey’s to get them back to New York, they run themselves into trouble with a woman from animal control. While trying to escape from her, they see themselves joining a circus of several of animals, including a jaguar, a tiger and a sea lion.
‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’ is creative and lots of fun present, with its colourful and vibrant animation, it’s adventurous spirit in terms of story and introducing new characters that are fun and that you really care about, which become nice new additions to the circus that is ‘Madagascar’ itself.
While the film starts out slow, in terms of humour and plot wise, once the action begins with the crazy animal control woman, the film accelerates with most jokes landing to laugh out loud results, and as the film progresses along, you fall in love with the film as you genuinely care about the characters and want them to succeed in getting back to New York Central Zoo.
‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’ is fun, colourful, hilarious and a very satisfying and heartfelt conclusion that I wish is the end, as it wraps the whole trilogy up in a nice big bow.
