Disappointing? I wouldn’t say so but I went in with a bit too high expectation I guess given the fact that I’ve watched the first 2 installment of the Madagascar 3 and I freaking love Madagascar 2. The show is so short. The story wasn’t that fantastic. I get the feeling that Madagascar 3 is just to tie up all the loose end and show everybody a happy ending. And I found of the supposedly “funny” parts were dumb. But again I’m looking at this from an adult point of view, which yeah maybe not be that suitable for a 3D cartoon show. However, that’s because Madagascar 2 did cater for that without losing its younger audience. I somehow felt that they didn’t really put a lot of thought into this and just go all out make something damn epic because it’s the finale. I can still forgive the giraffe and hippo dancing on a tight rope but which f-ing tiger can jump through a key hole while holding a zebra? Come on! I know it’s cartoon this is ridiculous even for cartoon.
But on a positive note, the show is light-hearted and does make you smile and enjoy the fun. If you ignore all the stupidity, and just go in and relax your brain. Madagascar 3 serves you well. So yes despite the fact that I don’t rate it so high, it’s still not really a waste of money to watch.
