    Sequels generally have a tendency to be half as good as the original, but in this case Madagascar 3 has a refreshingly new look, same level of energy and humor with its cast of characters, and a vibrant backdrop of a circus. The cast of characters - Marty, Alex, Gloria, and and Melman - decide to leave Africa and go back to New York, but need the penguins help to fly back, the penguins are as hilarious as they have been. With the penguins in Monte Carlo, there begins their adventure. They run into the devious Captain Chantal Dubois is the head of animal control in Europe who is called for help. She is a little too serious about her job and wants to mount the heads of the animals, particularly Alex the lion's, on her wall as trophies. She brings delightful humor with her ways! In a way she reminded me of the "Bad Kitty" eastern European lady from NY in part 2. The scenes with her are very funny. The lemur king Julian falls in love with the bear at the circus and he is entertaining as always, the very talented Sacha Baron Cohen has done a remarkable job with this character. The animals join a circus in an attempt to get away from Dubois. A number of new characters are introduced here who are part of the circus. This is where the movie picks up pace and bursts with color, and makes it a joy watching in 3D. This has to be one of the best 3D treats our family has seen this year across Ice Age, Brave, and The Lorax. The overall plot of the film is not as strong or content-rich as the first one, but the vivid colors and brilliant scenes make this as much a treat to watch as the previous two films. Madagascar 3 is fun for the entire family, kids and adults alike.

    I think this was a pretty good movie overall. I wish I had gone back and watched the other two for I don't remember were it left off. I was going to buy regardless thought to add to the collection. The energy in this one is pretty high I must say. It has its typical humor from Marty and crew. I like how it tied in with the circus. What I wasn't fond of was some of the unrealistic things that went on. I understand its animation and they can do anything, but keep it somewhat realistic. I won't go into detail for it doesn't really take much away from the movie. The Superwoman Animal Hunter was in a league of her own. She added some humor for sure but at the same time, I scratched my head a few times, lol. I like the message in this one that it presented. Kids may be able to relate to it. My kids loved it for its a really loud, active and colorful movie. They are pre-school age so that's what a movie needs to capture the attention of kiddos nowadays. I'd say give it a go. I attempted to watch it on release day and ended up falling asleep after 30mins. I didn't give it a fair judgment at first. Then I realized that I was just flat out tired and I tried to watch it after 9pm. So I gave it another go mid-day a few days later when I was wide awake. Glad I did for I had missed a very entertaining movie.

    Best Madagascar Yet! (Please Make Madagascar 4!)

    (****POSSIBLE SPOILERS****) In this latest installment of the Madagascar franchise, our favorite zoo animals are still trying to get back to New York, and in the process have to stow away with a run-down traveling circus to hide from a deranged animal control officer who wishes to hunt them and kill them. Along the way the circus animals regain their passion for performing, and the zoo animals learn the importance of family and friendship. Unlike the 2 previous movies, this one has plenty of heartfelt moments that will pull at your heartstrings and even make you misty-eyed in some parts. It also has some gorgeous special effects to boot. Even though it has a "happily ever after" ending, there are plenty of possibilities left for these characters, so hopefully DreamWorks will make a 4th one!

    Great 3D film for the whole family

    Prior to watching this movie I had never seen any of the Madagascar movies and I was a little unsure about purchasing animation movies. After all, I don't have a wife and kid. I really enjoyed the comedy and the actors. The 3D pop outs were awesome (and there were plenty) on my 50" Samsung Smart TV! I actually ducked a few times thinking I would get hit in the face by a flying object. You really get your money's worth. All movies should have things flying an d poking out the tv. Great buy, if I had to buy it over again I would. Definitely see if another site has it for cheaper and have Best Buy to price match. Your 3D experience may differ depending if your tv takes active (powered/expensive/best) or passive (movie theater glasses/cheaper/average) glasses. Enjoy!

    At this point, who doesn't love Madgascar !! This movie is a must in our movie collection specially for our son who loves the colors, music and animals in this movie. He is only 18 months but we let him watch something now and then and he loves dancing along. The 3D version is one of the best 3D movies we have! The clearness of the film is amaizing! We can't wait for the first and second to come out in 3D as well or so we hope!!!

    My kids (ages 11 and 3) and I enjoyed the previous Madagascar movies so we were really looking forward to this one. The bad character in the movie, the animal control officer, was a bit scary and over the top for the younger kids. Dead animal heads (including cats and dogs) could possibly be a bit disturbing to them. The overall movie however was very good. The songs have the little ones dancing along with them.

    I bought this to sample 3d on a new Sony 70" set. The video did not disappoint! It is no wonder most of the newer 3D releases are of animated features, they can produce outstanding effects. The story is good as well, Suitable for all ages. Adults, don't be turned off by the animation, it's a fun story for the whole family. No family - you will still get a few chuckles from this feature.

    The Animation along with story line far more exceeded what most would expect from a sequel. The special effect's were stunning and they just made the whole experience much more interesting. Children and Adult alike should find this movie exciting and joyfully entertaining as I did. It is not a waste of your time as sequels are and I look forward to watching again.
