Alex, Marty, Melman, Gloria, King Julien, Maurice and the penguins and the chimps find themselves marooned on the distant shores of Madagascar. In the face of this obstacle, the New Yorkers have hatched a plan so crazy it just might work. With military precision, the penguins have repaired an old crashed plane-sort of.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is one of those rare occasions where the sequel is better than the original - but only by a whisker."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"This is a really funny movie."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"If you weren't particularly enamored with the first one, chances are this isn't gonna change your opinion on the Madagascar cast"
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"In a post WALL-E world, it's hard not to be slightly underwhelmed by Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa."
‑ Anders Wotzke, Moviedex
"Energetic, fast-paced, and pumped full of zany humor...sure to entertain the younguns and be fairly painless for their guardians. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"The sequel, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, is a better film, though -- less manic, more easygoing."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"With so many characters to cram in and not much for many of them to do, Escape 2 Africa ends up a choppy, episodic affair."
‑ David Germain, Associated Press
"Kids will love the wisecracking penguins, industrious monkeys and feisty, survivalist grandma, who packs quite a wallop with her handbag."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"Two stripes and you're out!"
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"There's amusement in this jungle jumble but "Happy Feet" left me happier."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"This is great. I loved it."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"A by-the-numbers follow-up to the highly successful 2005 feature that was no great shakes to begin with."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Doesn't mess with a good thing. That means many prankish penguins, loony lemurs and that "move it, move it" song, all over again."
‑ Matt Soergel, Florida Times-Union
"I am no great fan of sequels, and am especially suspicious of movies that try to cross-over between adult and child audiences. But this one won me over early on."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"The characters seem better developed this time and the story lines are stronger."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
