Review: Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2/5)

"Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa” is OK. As an animated film, I’m lost for words on what description this film deserves, so let me put it this way: As a drama, it is melodramatic. As a comedy, it is slapstick. But it is melodramatically touching and funny in delivering slapstick humor. So I guess that’s OK. It may be a bit outdated considering how much animated films has evolved story-wise, but this film goes back to the basics on why animated films are made: for a wholesome family entertainment.

Pros: Great voice actors. (Ben Stiller as Alex, Chris Rock as Marty, David Schwimmer as Melman, Jada Pinkett Smith as Gloria, Sacha Baron Cohen as Julien, Bernie Mac as Zuba, Will.I.Am as Moto Moto, et al.)

Cons: Is this film trying to rip off “The Lion King”?

Yes. I've seen it. I'm glad you liked the film. It's decent. Not mind-blowingly great, but good enough as a piece of entertainment.
