A brilliant film that helped define a genre
Tells a fascinating and unsettling true story, and does so well, without pretending to have all the answers.
Penguins of Madagascar is my best movie. It is one of the movies who makes you laugh from beginning till end. Apart from Skipper and Private,Classified and rest of the characters are really good. This is my first review to anything because of this movie ,I got bound to write a comment for this movie. I really appreciate work of all cast to put such a good movie.
As a bit of context, this movie was one I saw as in-flight entertainment on a Scandinavian Airlines flight. Since it was the only animated movie I had any interest in reviewing, I decided to watch it. I feel rather mixed about doing so, but regret isn't necessarily one of them. The story does feature some clichés, though in at least one instance they make that a joke by halting said cliché to do something else. The messages are rather commendable, though Dr. Brine had a really awkward comeuppance. Speaking of which, the humor is what you'd expect from a movie about Minion precursors, with mostly childish gags but a few jokes that indeed are worth a chuckle. It does have some nice paced scenes (and cliché but epic slow-motion), which the animation also depicts really well. The style of the animation is identical to Madagascar (probably not necessary to write that) and it works in a way that it could straightforwardly occur as a mainline Madagascar film. It does have enough tropes, such as caricaturing various gadgets in action, to make it stand out enough as a spin-off. The characters have realistic mindsets and are all tolerable at worst, though the titular penguins' idiocy was one aspect I believe could have been written better. At times, Penguins of Madagascar even seems like one of those movies where to enjoy it, you have to power your brain off, though this isn't the case for all of it. If you are a fan of Madagascar, penguins, cute things, or distractions for children, then I would recommend this to you. If you are just a usual animation buff or moviegoer, then I would advise a bit of caution before you watch it.
Oh my this film! I don't think I would want my children to watch it if I was a parent. Simply because it is creepy on several counts. Firstly, the penguins look odd and the squids are a little disgusting to look at. Looks aside, scenes where people stuff their belongings in and out of the penguins are more distasteful than funny. The mutation of the penguins at the end is gory. The one penguin who talks very negatively in the name of being honest is not propagating anything useful. Particularly disturbing is the scene where everyone's darling baby penguin gets mutated without hope of repair and nobody could care less, shrugging it off as 'looks are not everything.' Then, the scene where the Revenge full squid finally finds a taker who doesn't take a minute before treating him atrociously . If I wanted a person to become crass and insensitive, this is the film for training. Children's films should certainly work on two counts-attractiveness and morality. Simply because children are vulnerable. This film fails on both counts. Who doesn't find real penguins cute? The animation could have added to the cuteness quotient. Unfortunately, it takes away from it. The plot is so mindless and random, that I don't want to waste my precious time commenting on it. For children, this film is a strict no. For adults, it makes for unintended humor l. Give it a miss.
Penguins of Madagascar (2014): Dir: Eric Darnell, Simon J. Smith / Voices: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Christopher Knights, Conrad Vernon, John Malkovich: Amusing followup to the popular Madagascar animations. Here the focus is on the three sharp wit penguins who are joined by a newly hatched fourth in the film's opening. These penguins are fairly interchangeable yet somehow manage to entertain viewers with their dimwitted confidence. The villain is an octopus whose first amusing gripe is that his name is Dave. Dave's back story is that the penguins stole his spotlight years ago and he is set to vanquish penguins from being adoring to people. The penguins are reluctant to accept the rescue and assistance of a group of animal spies called the North Wind Elite consisting of a wolf, polar bear, snow owl, and seal. This all climaxes with the least of thee stepping up and Dave being brought down. Dave is voiced with manic hilarity by John Malkovich whose outbursts in previous roles lend favorably to render Dave appropriately over the top. The penguins are innovative in their counter, never looking at the overbearing odds, choosing instead the naive road less likely and somehow landing on their feet. Directors Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith have fun with a script littered with great celebrity name references throughout the film. The animation is quirky and often innovative particularly in the use of the penguins black and white colour code during a break in to get at cheese dibs. This is not anything more than empty headed popcorn entertainment for kids but the title stresses reputation and these penguins live it up. Score: 8 / 10
