In the highly-anticipated sequel to Madagascar, Alex, Marty, Melman, Gloria, King Julien, Maurice and the penguins and the chimps find themselves marooned on the distant shores of Madagascar. In the face of this obstacle, the New Yorkers have hatched a plan so crazy it just might work. With military precision, the penguins have repaired an old crashed plane--sort of. Once aloft, this unlikely crew stays airborne just long enough to make it to the wildest place of all--the vast plains of Africa, where the members of our zoo-raised crew encounter species of their own kind for the very first time. Africa seems like a great place?but is it better than their Central Park home?
A sequel that offers nothing new
- Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa review by Jawbreaker
Escape 2 Africa is a very timid and frankly disappointing sequel. The creators have just rehashed the characters from the previous film and tried to work the same appeal through familiar songs and situations. Thankfully it is a short film by modern standards, however your interest diminishes soon after the plane crash, which comes early on in proceedings. On a positive note it is very colourful and will interest children, but even they will find it inferior to the previous outing.
