Penguins of Madagascar: Film Review – A thoroughly enjoyable fare

By Navin Noronha28 November, 2014 2 min read
You’d be lying if you said you didn’t smile every time the penguins appeared in the Madagascar films. They are conniving, somewhat calculated, and often involved in some sort of hijinks, raising hell wherever they go. All we wanted to do is see more of them, and our wish has now come true! Penguins of Madagascar is the spin-off we’ve all been waiting for.

The movie begins exactly where Madagascar 3 left off, with the restless foursome bailing out once again. Unfortunately, they get captured by an evil octopus called Dave (John Malkovich). Dave holds a special grudge against the penguins and plans to use a powerful serum to turn penguins all over the world into ugly, deformed creatures. Obviously, Skipper (Tom McGrath), Kowalski (Chris Miller), Private

(Christopher Knights) and Rico (Conrad Vernon) decide to stop him. But to do so, they have to join forces with a secret organization called North Wind.
Now, spin-offs can be tricky to deal with. When side characters get their own outing, filmmakers have the liberty to do more with them. If not handled carefully, the whole thing can turn into a gigantic mess. Thankfully, directors Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith spin a delightful tale and the penguins finally get the limelight they always craved for.

The movie is an amazing joyride that will leave you in splits. Especially when the octopus Dave inadvertently creates puns out of actors’ names. The animation is crisp, with some parts coming alive in 3D. We also get to see much more of the penguins’ individual personalities. The terrific voice cast lends a lot of authenticity to the story. Some of the best dialogues are exchanged between Skipper and Classified, thanks to the spot-on voice-over by Bennedict Cumberbatch.

However, there are some obvious plot holes in the film and the storyline is pretty generic. However, it’s easy to ignore that, considering the amount of fun you are having.

Why should you watch this film?

Penguins of Madagascar
is extremely fun to watch. At 92 minutes, it is briskly paced, and lets you leave the cinema hall with a huge grin on your face. The film can be enjoyed by individuals of all ages. While it may not be the best animated feature film of the year, it is certainly one you should catch with the whole family.
