Madagascar 2
Author: Timothy Foster
rating: 0+x
Madagascar 2 is the sequel to the rather successful movie, Madagascar. This movie features the same main characters, Marty the Zebra, Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo, and Melvin the Giraffe, plus the penguins and King Julian. The movie seems to take place a time after the end of Madagascar when the four characters decide to go back to New York by plane. They end up landing in the mainland of Africa where Alex meets his dad.

The four main protagonists

This animated film was a little fast paced and quick sometimes sacrificing development in order for the movie to be of reasonable size. However, the overall storyline this movie offers is not so bad. The intro was weak forcing the watcher to guess what exactly is going on. The flashback was poorly displayed as well being only truly evident whenever the baby lion reaches New York. But then, the movie makes a small turn and satisfies the viewer.

The movie properly uses the multiple elements in order to create a satisfying story. The events that occur are somewhat logical. The various reactions and actions of the characters are pretty convincing. The good thing about this movie is the moral of friendship through hard times. It teaches the value of friendship, and it adds a little bit of the personal talent most other movies have. The only bad thing I would say is the old woman was overdone.

The animations were pretty good as well. It gave a sense of realness, but it was enough animated to let the viewer know that this movie is purely fictional. Everything is three-dimensional and computer generated, but then again, so many movies do that now.

The movie was enjoyable, and it can be viewed by a young audience. The humor level is great, but some of it is still a little "mature". If you want to enjoy a good show, then this movie should do quite nice as it nearly equals its predecessor.
