Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted

This latest offering of the Madagascar series was a much anticipated one. And for the fans, it didn’t disappoint. For others, I came across one comment describing it as a little too childish. But I believe the consensus is that it is pretty funny.

Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman take off from Africa, desired destination being New York of course. However, as always, things don’t go exactly as planned. And they end up landing in Monte Carlo. From there starts their adventure in Europe.
The evil (but still cute) penguins are with them of course.

And we meet some new animal friends as the four become a part of a circus. The aim is to perform well in the circus and get selected to go to NY city. What follows are some pretty funny moments, along with some learning ones as the animals all try to motivate an old and dispirited member of the circus gang.

And what movie is complete without a villain. Here it is the animal catcher, who cuts out a very irritating and hateful figure.

Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman do end up reaching home, that is, New York. However, they lose a few friends along the way and realize at the end that they do not belong in the zoo after all. It was a fitting end. The four team up with their circus friends again and embark on a life of freedom. To say that this might have been the last chapter in the Madagascar series won’t be far from the truth I believe. Loved it while it lasted!
