With regard to the movie package itself. There is not much to say on that. It is pretty much what you would expect. It seems good. The discs are stored well in the case. There is no idiotic stacking of discs or any nonsense like that. The cover art it nice. Great movie and great package.
The main characters were like the characters from 'Seinfeld', but without the commitment to self-satisfaction that made them funny.
In 'Europe's Most Wanted', Director Eric Darnell busts his entire cast free of their island prison; and, sets them loose on the world at-large. The animators and voice artists respond to the larger canvas with inspired acting, and a riot of movement and color that literally has to be seen to be believed.
The story (such as it is) has the heroes crashing the Monte Carlo Casino, being chased by a psycho French animal-control officer (a howlingly funny Frances McDormand) and hiding out with a down-on-its-luck animal circus. These elements are all that is needed for an animated tour-de-force.
The pace varies between fast, breakneck and ludicrous speed, with better jokes and a lot less bathos then in the first two 'Madagascar' installments. The crazy penguins are utilized brilliantly, the one-note King Julian is used sparingly (a little of him goes a LONG way) and the circus animals are perfectly compliments to push the main characters to a funnier level.
Madagascar III is for kids of all ages, fans of great animated movies or anyone who loves a good laugh.
I've watched it 3 times already and I don't see myself stopping any time soon! The Blu-ray version really "pops" with colors/clarity; some scenes looked almost 3-D (this is the only time I wish I had a 3-D capable HDTV-I'd have bought the 3-D version; without reservations)! It looked just like (if not better; quality-wise) the movie as seen in Theaters! Did I mention the action scenes? They are "top-notched" comparable (PG-wise) to any non-CG movie! Even with suspense included! You have to be carefully attentive to catch some of the adult(not-in-a-bad-way-for-kids) Humor. The "mad/crazy" animal control lady was also Crazy-Hilarious!
If I (ever) get tired of laughing; I'll probably just watch it for the spectacular visuals of the Blu-ray version. This movie was definitely worth buying the Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo(+Digital Copy+UltraViolet & Rainbow Wig) version! I think I'll watch it again tonight....
Oh, yeah...My kids liked it too! The included Rainbow Wig was not as "big & poofy" as I thought, but the kids enjoyed putting it on MY HEAD; more than their own! I definitely recommend this Blu-ray version of the movie! Very satisfied + good Amazon price...money well spent!

Our animal protagonists start the movie stranded in Africa and awaiting the return of the penguins who have gone to Monaco to gamble at the casinos. Tired of waiting, our heroes track them down before falling foul of a psychopathic animal control inspector who proceeds to pursue them across Europe.
Having crashed their Heath Robinson flying machine the animals hitch a lift with a decrepit circus. They learn that the circus is to be auditioned by an American agent for a gig in New York. Seeing an opportunity to get home the animals convince the circus animals that they are great circus performers and agree to train their rescuers in return for a chance to try out with the circus for passage to New York.
This is the cue for all sorts of physics-defying lunacy before the animals stage a psychedelic spectacular for an amazed audience.
As a 2nd sequel this is a pretty good film. Despite the one star detractors among the reviewers I think it holds up well against the first two films. There are new characters, plenty of action and the hopes, doubts and dreams of the circus animals drive the emotional core of the story. Yes it could be interpreted as giving a message that animals belong in a circus but only if you over-think it. After all, what circus has trapeze walking giraffes and hippos? Where would you see a sea lion or a zebra blown out of a cannon? It's too fantastic to take seriously.
Buy the movie, a big bag of popcorn and some drinks and enjoy a family night with the kids. You could do a lot worse.
I could grumble a bit about the price, which at £18 is a bit steep, but there is no more sincere indication of my love for this franchise than the fact that I couldn't wait a few weeks for the price to drop.
A few more child-centred extras would be nice, along the lines of the dance-along that came on the Ice Age 4 blu-ray, but that's a minor quibble, as is the lack of DTS.
All in all, another hilarious family film that keeps adults and - in my family's case - a two year old and a four year old absolutely gripped.
