"Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa in IMAX" *** (out of four): With this, the second film in the Madagascar series, Dreamworks Animation gives us more of the same. And by that I mean a fun-filled romp through the wild with our friendly foursome of zany zoosters.
When is "more of the same" a compliment? When it describes a sequel to a successful and enjoyable original animated film. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, the follow-up to 2005's Madagascar, falls squarely into this camp. The lovably quirky original foursome of zoo animals from the first film is back, along with their friends, the penguins, the monkeys, the lemur king Julien (and his two sidekicks) plus an entourage of new characters.
