    Surprisingly an improvement over its predecessor. "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" in a way fixes the main issue of its predecessor and as a result we have a very entertaining sequel. The story has more of a focus on a certain character and that's Alex the lion. The other characters have their subplots as well and that makes the story a little more interesting as our main characters end up in Africa on their way home so have to find a…

    And here I thought that this was going to be the film that brought Robert Redford out of retirement as an actor, because why wouldn't he show up for the long-overdue sequel to the Oscar-winning "Out of Africa"? Man, I can't even joke about that, because this isn't that kind of film, although it is considered more respectable than its predecessor by most people (Hey, I like the last movie; get off my back). They probably gave this film some…

    In meinen Augen, ein würdiger Nachfolger. Nicht so gut wie Teil 1, aber kein billiger Abklatsch davon. Das rechne ich den Machern von Madagaskar 2 hoch an, gut geworden!

    At the end of the entertaining “Madagascar” it was inevitable there would be a sequel. It probably wouldn’t be as much fun right? Wrong! The strong points of the first movie were expanded in the sequel and the characters have found new goals in their lives. The jokes are as much fun, the pace is perfect and the animations are again very good.

    Again you shouldn’t expect a strong plot. The movie starts, after a short story back in time,…

    I hate sequels. I wasn't optimistic and was proved right. It had lost the spark of the first movie and just focused on Alex finding and bonding with his dad. Half the amount of laughs, story and adventure. Why bother with sequels!!!!!

    While the first 'Madagascar' is my personal favorite of the franchise, it can be argued the sequels are better. That can very much be said when it comes to 'Madagascar 2: Escape 2 Africa'. It's just as chaotic as the first film and still just as funny, once again featuring great animation and voice acting but also having just as many emotionally poignant moments as the first film, if not more.

    Mostly a good attempt at a sequel here despite some big mistakes. The biggest mistake I can see is making a bit part in a Kung Fu Granny from the first film into a major villain here. The jokes are mostly okay to good but nowhere as crisp as those that land in the first entry. My boys enjoy these films and I'm looking forward to our inevitable viewing of the third in the series which I haven't seen. And maybe ... just maybe we might get to this Penguins movie currently in cinemas. I like the trailer for it.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    All the characters are back and all are voiced by the same stars as before so continuity is a go for launch. Starting life as a prequel we get a brief glimpse at the main characters when they were very young in the zoo and how Alex got there.

    From there we are back on Madagascar as the mammal team prepare to leave in their homemade plane back to New York. On route the plane crashes in Africa where they…
