Penguins of Madagascar
Samantha A., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 11
Penguins of Madagascar is a movie about a group of penguins (Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private) that go on globetrotting adventures. In this movie, their adventures take them to Antarctica, the desert, Venice, Shanghai and New York. During their travels, the penguins meet an elite team called “The North Wind” led by a husky handsome dog, Agent Classified (Voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) and together, they must fight the evil Dr. Octavius Brine (Voiced by Jhon Malkovich)
You may have already seen the penguins in Dream Works original movie Madagascar but now, you see them again in their own movie comedy. You may not think it, but this movie does have a few very good messages, For example, don’t let anyone underestimate you and your true power, and always speak up and be heard.
This movie is action packed. Sometimes I wasn’t sure if it was a good thing or a bad thing because it feels like it jumps from place to place. Sometimes it is good because, once the action REALLY gets going, it feels just right. One of the reasons I like this movie is because, even though it is action packed and funny it also has sad parts. I like that. Even though the penguins are adventurous and strong, it is nice seeing their more sympathetic side
Something I like, and always have liked, about the penguins is that they all have distinct personality traits that define who they are. For example, Kowalski has his big brain. They are each so different, but together they are a very cool team.
I give this film 4 out of 5 stars and I recommend it for ages six to 13 because it is funny and most little kids will understand the topic but there are some jokes that younger kids might not understand. I loved it and so will you!
