Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Life full of dangers on Madagascar has not justified expectations accustomed to comfort the new York zoo animals — Alex the lion, Zebra Marty, giraffe Melman and hippos Gloria — and friends decide to escape from the island. By chance, the whole company enters into Africa where Alex meets his family, with whom he was separated in childhood. Unexpectedly for themselves Alex understands that after life in a zoo he has much less in common with relatives than he would like...

May not everyone will want to agree with the following statement, but still... In contrast Pixar, at which the principle is not there are no failures, art Studio DREAM WORKS gives us to speak of some... limitations. After all, except for Shrek, who is not even though silly third part, even will long remain a benchmark of the cartoon (along with the works of pisarova), in addition to great green Ogre, only Madagascar claims to remain in history. Well, or at least in short, stable. And that's "Shrek" has completed (before the release of the 4th part, which, as I think that will be something unimaginable in the worst sense of the word), and now only the creators of Madagascar laid on their shoulders the responsibility for the cash profit of the Studio and the love of the audience.

But we will understand more. So, what same is the second Madagascar?Familiar the company of animals, which includes: penguins, lion Alex, Hippo Gloria, Zebra Marty, giraffe Melman, king Julian of the lemurs, its adviser, Maurice strange, cute and a little crazy lemur-like creature by the name Morph and monkey Chuck Norris, go to new York old, it is not clear how flying a plane. But drivers such as the penguins, not fly away, heroes crash-land in Africa. With this point, events begin to develop with breakneck speed. Alex meets his parents and tries to prove that he's a real lion, Melman is suffering from love Gloria, Marty agonizes over his alleged absolute similarity to relatives, the penguins are trying to fix the ill-fated plane, and military grandmother from the first part (Yes, she) became the ideological leader of the lost in the jungle of people.

The main drawback of the film — a huge number of storylines for which is quite difficult to follow. In the result one of them looks complete and logically complete. The creators do not could even fully disclose all planted the idea that alone originality. Well, well, few of their ideas we need to borrow! Misunderstanding father Hobbies son, who clearly stands out among its congeners, we have seen in "happy feet". The struggle for leadership in the lion's pack - in "the lion King". (And the best cartoon on this subject is not will never I sure.) It also, there is some illogicality. The basis of the storyline is devoted to utterly a little time, while minor (for example, the history of grandmothers) — too much. In General, Madagascar 2 should the scheme of the sequel to "Shrek": the characters and jokes more, mind and grace smaller. So let us all together ponadeetsya to Madagascar 3 (I sure. will certainly) is not become a follower of the final movie in the trilogy of Shrek the parts of wit and easy, fabulous day.

Parts borrowed and rather chaotic story, an instructive component in the surprisingly banal and worn to holes, characters old characters are not subject to change (which in this case is not to say that a plus), and new revealed. Well so same — failure? Of course not. Light humour, audience favorite is still in the first film, not anywhere here, but and progressed. Some jokes are too tight (all the same story grandmother), and some — just stupid, but such failures do not affect the overall impression of the film. You all so will laugh the antics of the penguins (which again stole the whole movie) and to rejoice, when, of course, end well. Actually, for this need these films — to give you a couple of hours of sincere laughter and good mood.

As a result, despite all its shortcomings, despite the that the sequel inferior to the first part, I sincerely recommend to watch Madagascar 2. It honestly performs its main task and helps viewers to immerse themselves in a world of joy, in which you can forget about all your worries and just laugh, rejoicing in a new meeting with familiar characters.

I must say that it is better to watch now:
1. Release on DVD only next year for this to wait quality standards for a long time.
2. Mull is really good.

It took 3 years after the 1st and I am grateful to the authors that they were in a hurry to release, and just worked him. And tried to release from the 2nd until the noise after the 1st is not the quiet.

The cartoon can be divided into 3 parts.

part 1

All friendly company went with Madagascar goes to Africa. To join the king of Madagascar with leaving his faithful assistant chief lizard. And this is the interesting part.

part 2

And so they Africa, Alex finds his family with which parted in childhood. All the company dissolves and goes to other canines. To unfortunately this time the authors decided not to dwell on the humor very disappointed.

part 3

The whole company again reunited for in order to get somewhere disappeared the water and not without using the team of penguins, who after a crash landing with a bunch of monkeys decided to restore the plane.

Also was not without the bug-eyed magnetica, which is not allowed the plane, but he is not prevent access to the Islands. According to him adventure periodically showed excerpts (something that reminded the squirrel of Ice age).

And that haven't latest funny hero. Did did not show this character in the trailer so for me this was a pleasant surprise.

As I already said, the film is good, though tended to sleep the middle, so:

9 of the 10

Cartoons Dream Works never distinguished elegance and refinement. But if stories green Ogre this hooliganistic and the pressure was the perfect way to make fun of famous stamps and popular stories the second Madagascar itself is a set of stamps.

Another clear disadvantage for the main characters. The second film simply slips on place in terms of character development. It is not the animated series, where each new series starts so if nothing else had. This feature film-a sequel, so as it turns out something stupid, the main characters come to the conclusions that they themselves did back in the end of the first film.

Yes, there are a couple of funny moments, some good jokes, and everything! Not a good sequel to as an interesting and original first cartoon.
