Movie Review: Madagascar

I took the kids to see Madagascar this afternnon.

I really liked the way Manhatten was animated, particularly the bit in Grand Central, which was nothing short of stunning - I honestly felt that I was standing there on the concourse and surely that is the greatest compliment one can give to a cartoon. As for the rest of the movie, hmmm!

I laughed twice but can't remember the lines (which probably went way above the kids' heads) and actually felt myself dozing off towards the end, during what was supposed to be the most exciting part, so that's not good.

Summing up,the kids had a good time and that's the most important thing. The fact that I was disappointed with the movie shouldn't put you off taking your kids or nephews/nieces to see it.

My Rating


2 (Out of 5)

Good point...but I don't want to inflate Denton's ego too much by getting him to pass off as me!
