Default 'Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter has reviewed 'Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.' He says it's a fairly fun, if unnecessary sequel. This Blu-ray has great video and audio and some good supplements. Worth a look.

Full review here:

I wouldn't call it an unnecessary sequel, especially considering it improved vastly on the underwhelming original.

I could be wrong, but I think the logo for this movie has been misinterpreted by almost everyone. I'm pretty sure the movie is actually called "Madagascar 2: Escape Africa". They end up in Africa accidentally, so "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" doesn't make sense.

I guess I'm the only one out there who thinks the audio doesn't stack up against other 5/4.5 star animated film audio tracks. I think the audio scores I'm seeing are overrated. IMO, Cars, Rat, KFP and Ice Age/2 are all infinitely better in the audio department than Madagascar 2. It just left me underwhelmed. PQ was incredible though and I agree that the story was better than the first one.

Not really, they tried to escape but the plane crashed in Africa. The title it's sarcastic because instead of going to the city, they Escape (true) but to Africa.

There is BD-Live content, and actually was live prior to release date.

Loys, perhaps it wasn't ready when the review was written, and the terminology used for such is press, rather than written/reviewed. But i do hear ya on that, may need an update!

Just watched this and think the movie was enjoyable. I really like the first one (as does my son) and this doesn't compare to that... but if you have kids I'd say its worth it.

Yeah, I'm just saying unless he had other means, Paramount/Dreamworks didn't send this out until Wednesday. That's why all the review sites were not early with this one.
