Yesterday I went and saw Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa in theaters. I do not often go see movies in the theater and it is even rarer that it is my idea that initiates going, but this is one of the few movies I really wanted to see. In part it is because of the penguin characters.
The movie is basically about four zoo animals who ended up in Madagascar in the first movie. Now in the sequel they escape from Madagascar via an airplane fixed up by the penguins. They originally are trying to get back to New York, but the plane fails fast and they just end up crash landing on a nature reserve in Africa. Hence the name Escape 2 Africa and not just Madagascar 2.
Anyways the movie is a pretty good animated movie. The plot was quite vague and I was not sure it was going to be good based on the previews, but it turned out to be really interesting. The penguin parts are still pretty slim, but the penguins do have some good scenes, especially when they attack the humans on safari.
