What other reasons to watch a comedy in the cinema apart from having Ben Stiller amd Chris Rock in the cast? Well, a nice catchy song and nice animations from DreamWorks Animation. Whenever you hear the song "I Like to Move It" (an old 1994 song by Reel 2 Real (Erick Morillo), featuring The Mad Stuntman (Mark Quashie)), you will recall back the first Madagascar movie in 2005.

It has been three years since the movie and the only character I can remember is Alex the Lion. This is probably because I never watch the original in the cinema, paying less attention to the rest of the main casts of Marty the Zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo. I particular like the penguins though, they sounded like those characters of the Al Capone days. The faces of the main four animals resembles the faces of the real actors, especially Chris Rock. It's funny but interesting way to portray them.

Well, the movie basically continue where it left when they left New York's zoo and left stranded on Madagascar. They 'flew' to Africa instead of New York because of insufficient fuel, back to Alex's hometown. It's great that they put in abit of storyline to link from the past. The story focuses on family bonding and friendship. It did not disappoint me because sequals tend to disappoint. I am hoping for the best for the next one. You have the green light from me to go and enjoy this in the cinema. Have a good laugh and have a great time!
