Neither it or its predecessor are to be considered brilliant, but there's no doubt "Escape 2 Africa" is slightly superior.

Superior sequel that delivers more of worked in the first and less of what did not. The characters have grown more on me this time and the jokes come out at rapid fire. I laughed consistently.

The most cunning and vicious creatures are definitely back. Yes I'm talking about the penguins, you’re probably expecting something else. It was really funny to see this flightless birds be as sophisticated as a military tactical team. Kind of weird I’m talking about them and they’re not even the stars of the show. Perhaps it’s because they stole the spot light on the real stars namely Alex and the gang. Well it would be fair to say this movie became ten times funnier because of them. Anyway the story was really intended for Alex, his struggles to become the Alpha Lion in his new tribe. As it goes deeply to how and why he ended up in a New York zoo and became performer that he is. My impression with the first Madagascar was really a mere kid’s flick. What they've done now is …
