Review: Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted (2012)

The film may have hinted that this could be the series’ ending but the film did not shy away from the endearing first installment that we came to love. The film takes off from where it ended in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. The foursome (Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman) along with lemur, king Julien, Maurice and the ever so tricky and clever Penguins somehow managed to reach Monte Carlo hoping to catch a ride home to

New York. From there, trouble ensues as Chantel DuBois, a French animal-control officer had Alex being part of the Most Wanted List, is chasing them down. To find their way out, the gang decided to join a circus that led to more adventures.

I thought the film yet again, delivered another hit by continually charming its audience with witty jokes and the ever-so adorable penguin chatter. It was set in a fast-paced mood that the entirety of the film is almost too much to ponder upon because everything is happening so fast but I just love it! I did enjoy every scene especially with King Julien’s antics to impress his newfound love.

It is also good to know that this third installment seemed to step up their animation with colorful and just stunning visuals. That one scene where Katy Perry’s Firework seemed to have captured the mood perfectly. Every kid should enjoy this film to bits. The novelty is still there, the hilarity, though nonsensical at times – is still very much part of what we enjoyed the most about the first two films and with this one, you sure will get your money’s worth.
