Ben Stiller reprises his voice role as Alex the Lion is the third installment of the ‘Madagascar’ films. Once again we are with Gloria the Hippo, Melman the Giraffe and Marty the Giraffe.
In this, the third installment;” Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent – Madagascar style.”
The film is rather fun, as you would expect any 3D Animation produced by DreamWorks and distributed by Paramount Pictures.
Once again there are musical sequences, bright colours, hilarious animals. And, lots of love interests. The evil villain is French, an animal like Police Woman who is on the hunt for our favourite Zoo animals.
Perhaps the best scenes in the film are the elaborate Circus scenes, they are a feat in animation. Complex, intricate and thoroughly entertaining, not to mention uplifting and brightly coloured.
A family favourite, easy to watch, entertaining. If you like animated films, then head to your local Odeon Cinema to see this entertaining, laugh a minute film.
