Penguins of Madagascar Review – Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private comes out with their own venture out from the shadows of Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman.
We get to witness how Skipper (Ton McGrath), Kowalski (Jeff Bennett), Rico (John DiMaggio) rescued Private (James Patrick Stuart) and embark on their own journey. Their cute and cuddly feature becomes a big hit and are loved anywhere they go. Little did they know they have ‘stolen’ the limelight from Dave the Octopus disguised as human Dr. Octavius Brine (John Malkovich). While on another adventure, the four penguins get kidnaped and later rescued by the North Wind. Together they discover that Dave plans to get even with the flipper birds that can’t fly. They have to stop Dave before he jeopardise the penguins loveable traits. Can they make it on time?

The original voice cast for the penguins are not familiar names but the latest additions are instantly recognisable, namely John Malkovich, Benedict Cumberbatch and Ken Jeong. They bring their own flavour to the characters they play. Storyline is well crafted with few moral values attached to make both kids and adults enjoy watching the flick. If you didn’t like penguins before, you would love them by end of this movie. The colours, the music, the adventure will surely put a smile on your face and some scenes will get you laughing of chair off. Trust me!

What I enjoyed most was the pun styled name dropping of famous actors. One has to be quick to connect the name that puns perfectly with the action. For example….Nicholas…Cage them…geddit geddit? I was going ‘kekeke’ when I heard his name so imagine how much harder I laughed when Kevin Bacon, Halle Berry and the like’s names were mentioned. With an awesome spin-off the Madagascar series, I look forward to the sequel to find out what else are the Penguins of Madagascar are up to in the future.
