This is one of those rare occasions where the sequel is better than the original – but only by a whisker. In the first instalment, Alex the dancing lion and his mismatched cohorts escaped from a New York zoo on a mission to reach Africa. They missed and wound up on Madagascar instead. Roll on part two and Alex (voice of Ben Stiller) et al are on board a home-made aircraft bound for Africa where they hope finally to meet members of their own species. The film then shatters into a trillion plotlets involving reunions, rites of passage, water shortages, volcanic sacrifices, even a little romantic interaction. Yet, despite this splintered storyline, the film manages to remain more coherent than the last. The animation, too, is improved. Great pre-Chrimbo fun for under-tens, then, but a chore for anyone else. Tip: for best results, see it in gigantiscope at the IMAX.

Wine please. This is rubbish! 6/6 though as it was good animation. IMAX is best. Autographs for me!

Fantastic and Must-see! IMAX is the best place though. Ordinary cinemas can't handle the hardcore hilarity and impact of the film.

I did not like the film. It was very annoying with the screeching sounds and can be very mundane at times. Blob should stop spamming. If you want to see it, use the IMAX not a usual cinema, as they cannot afford to have good quality

Blob

I do not like people who write comments nothing about the film whatsoever (and i'm sure you have recognised im doing that right now)

Fun for kids and adults alike. My 2 year old was transfixed (apart from the occasional comments of 'I don't like the lions' and 'I like the hippos best'), my 5 year old forgot to eat her sweets she was so engrossed and us grown ups found plenty to smile at (though not quite laugh out loud!). A good, family fun film.

I don't approve of all the people who are rating this film before they have seen it, but i thought this film was really great. I do recommend it to anyone who is thinking about watching it. Better than the first also.

After reading the reviews for this film I went in to the cinema not expecting to be to impressed but I actually loved it!! I nearly cried at the start and despite the reviews I though it was fab and even thought the characters in the film thought mort was annoying I think he is soooooooooo cute and would like him as a pet!!1

saw it yesterday was so so so good. i actually cried at the beginning of it :') i loved it so much but don't agree that it was better than the 1st as the first one had more legendary moments, there both classics though :) loved it!

I took my grandchildren today, the theatre was full of all age groups and the only sound was laughter. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
