Penguins of Madagascar USA 2014 – 92min.
Penguins of Madagascar
The secrets of the most insanely mysterious penguins in the world will finally be revealed! In this spin-off of the Madagascar franchise, Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private team up with an elite special ops force called the North Wind. Led by Agent Classified, they go after Dr. Octavius Brine to stop him from taking over the world.
The people at DreamWorks have not skimped on plot twists, explosions, surprise effects or gags: there’s isn’t a boring minute in this movie. But the frenzy doesn’t give the penguins any depth; they are far from any of the well-rounded characters from Madagascar. Despite this, the movie is mostly funny and well-paced, although it does get repetitive quite quickly. If you have a choice, go see the Madagascar trilogy again. If you don’t, you’ll spend your time hoping that Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the fabulous hippo will turn up to add some spice to this adventure.
