It's All Some Type Of Whacked Out Conspiracy.
Zoo animals leave the comforts of man-made habitats for exotic adventure in this animated family film. After escaping from the zoo, four friends -- a lion, a hippo, a zebra and a giraffe -- are sent back to Africa. When their ship capsizes, stranding them on Madagascar, an island populated by crazy critters, the pals must adapt to jungle life and their new roles as wild animals.
So what does a 19-year old guy and his girlfriend watch when they have a choice of over 1000-films? Obviously, they watch Madagascar. And with they being me and my girlfriend, why did we watch it? A good reason is that we sporadically watch The Penguins of Madagascar, 10-minute episodes which flash-by and are generally fun to watch. Plus, the penguins and the lemurs are infinitely more entertaining than the main cast of this film.
Which as you can tell by the poster - a lion, a zebra, a giraffe and a hippopotamus are all so happy and dandy and pulling that we're happy face. The film is pretty quick, so it's not torture - yet, it's not exactly funny.…
Solid animated fun. The characters are all likable and the colors are vibrant. While it does become generic often and the jokes were a little too juvenile for my taste, I still enjoy this film for what it is.
Inoffensive and utterly forgettable. Notable for the fact that all main characters on the poster are making Dreamworks Face.
Fun animated flick, but way too forced and retarded.
I've always felt the Madagascar series was a little overrated. I've heard quite a few people say it is the closest any animation film has got to Pixar levels of quality. I completely disagree.
Madagascar is great for the kids but has little appeal for anyone over the age of about eleven. Also that whole "I like to move it" scene isn't funny, it's not even smile worthy it's just fucking annoying.
Nice animated family feature with a great voice cast, Madagascar is a fun harmless comedy at under 90 mins its a perfect piece of keep the kids quiet (most of the time) entertainment!
This movie was funny and cute. But not the best DreamWorks movie.
Cute, but the technology no longer impresses us. We now have to rely on the writing and the plot. The writing wavers - sometimes it's quite cute; othertimes, it waxes and wanes. I liked it - probably really good for kids. But no rush to see it in the theaters.
Some of the best stuff was actually hashed out repeatedly in the trailers.
Whatever, I liked it.
Wow. I watched it with not much of a high hope, and ended up really enjoying it.
A light-hearted animated comedy. Impressive character design and animation considering its nine years old at time of watching.
A wacky romp featuring a colorful cast of characters that's just a little thin in the story department.
Film #10 of the Dreamworks Project
Madagascar is OK. But it doesn't even come close to being any more than that. The story is simple but really seems to die once the animals land on the island. Interestingly enough, judging by the title and poster, the film obviously markets the island story heavily, but the actual story seems to die once they hit the island. There's a marginally interesting subplot involving Alex reaching his carnivorous routes but it's thrown in in the last 20 minutes.
Madagascar just seems to be nothing more than passable. It's not bad enough to hate, but it doesn't really try. It's a very short movie that tries barely anything during it's running time. The humor…
