Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is that rare thing: a franchise that grows more winning with each instalment."
‑ Guy Lodge, Time Out
"A fun and fast family entertainment."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Fans of the original and its familial sequel will love this colorful, vibrant excursion through Europe."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"A sugar high that inevitably fades with time."
‑ Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies
"Instead of developing the characters or situations for comedy gold, the filmmakers instead just crank up the chaos. So while some scenes are both funny and visually impressive, this second sequel is simply too inane."
‑ Rich Cline,
"From time to time the improbable occurs: A sequel outdoes its original."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"The clever lines and themes of friendship and finding home are almost completely overwhelmed here by the breathless pace and sensory overload..."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"For a frantic, action-packed 80-odd minutes, it seldom puts a foot, paw or cloven hoof wrong."
‑ Andy Lea, Daily Star
"Sheer manic animated anarchy... It's as if the cool, smooth nonsense of the penguins' outrageous schemes -- yes, they're back too -- were allowed to take over the entire film..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Hugely entertaining, ferociously funny."
‑ Alex Zane, Sun Online
"The screenplay, by Eric Darnell and Noah Baumbach, churns out the snappy witticisms with admirable creative gusto, but it whizzes along at such a frenetic pace that you'll probably miss half of them."
‑ Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle
"What might be barely tolerable in a seven-minute short gave me the biggest headache since "Transformers: Dark of the Moon.''"
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted may arrive with low expectations, but it's a pleasant surprise, sending its character barrelling across continents for a zippy, engaging 90-minute adventure."
‑ Simon Reynolds, Digital Spy
"The first-class 3D animation is better than the cliche-ridden script."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"This is animation that never just goes through the motions but glories in its feats and so, almost certainly, will you."
‑ , This is London
