Madagascar 2: Escape to Africa
A true delight for the family has arrived on DVD thanks to Dreamworks Home Entertainment. “Madagascar 2: Escape to Africa” is a winning follow up to the highly successful original tale. Picking up soon after where the original film left off, the story focuses on the efforts of escaped zoo animals, Alex the lion (Ben Stiller), Marty the zebra, (Chris Rock), Melman the giraffe (David Schwimmer), and Gloria the hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith) to return to the zoo.
With the help of the scheming penguins and the lemur king Julien (Sacha Baron Cohen), the group embark home thanks to a restored crashed airplane. Shortly after they start their trip home, the group end up in Africa thanks to some mechanical issues.
Once again fish out of water, the group must survive, as well as deal with their true nature, a new mix of friends and enemies as well as family to save the day.
The fantastic animation and great characters power this story which is the rare follow up that is better than the original. The disc is loaded with extras and is a must have for fans and collectors.
