I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.
I think I never appreciated just how clever the “Madagascar” movies were when I was growing up with them, at least in their comedy.
The animation style Dreamworks employs is quick and super sharp, making motion pop out of the screen and the visual jokes seamlessly timed.
So, logically taking the funniest part of a series of films whose merit is almost entirely based on how funny it is seems to be the best thing to do. And it works.
This surpasses the previous “Madagascar” films. It may not have as much focus on drama, but that’s the point. The only drama that matters is in the relationships between four penguins. It trims the fat and gets straight to the point. This is 90 minutes of very well rendered 3D joy.
