Review by Jonnie Miles, age 7
Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted is a brilliant PG film that I think everyone should watch. PG stands for ‘Parental Guidance,’ so bring an adult with you. The film is suitable for children aged six years and up.
All the favourite characters from the first two films are still in this one, although it’s differs from the first two because at first they are absent from the zoo. Madagascar 3 is about the animals trying to get back to their home, which is the zoo in New York.
Alex, the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo and Melman the giraffe have lots of adventures. When they try to get back home, they end up buying a rundown circus that’s heading for New York. They teach tricks to the other animals in the circus and they make the circus a success. They do make it home, however there is still a surprise to come.
The ‘Afro-Circus’ song might get stuck in your head!
The music in the film may make you want to get up and dance and it sticks in your head. You may find yourself singing it all the way home. When I got home I found there was a short game on YouTube based on the film. I think the film would make a great video game and hope that one comes out soon so I may play it.
I saw the film in 3D and the effects were brilliant, so watch out for flying objects and steer clear from banging your head when you duck down! Madagascar 3 is also available in 2D if you deter from liking the 3D effects and spurn wearing 3D glasses.
I think this is the best of the three films released so far. It is really funny and you might well laugh your socks off. Madagascar 3 may be the only thing you need to watch this Christmas!
