The third sequel of the notable 3d animated venture, 'Madagascar' series, titled 'Madagascar 3 : Europe's Most Wanted' has been released. It comes from Dream Works Animation and Paramount Pictures. Hope, everyone remembers the activities of Lion, Zebra, Hippo and Giraffe that belongs to the 'Madagascar' crew. The previous version of the movie got released 4 years ago. The movie is a double 3d experience, as we are watching a 3d animated movie wearing 3d glasses.
The story tells about the adventures of the four member gang, who disappeared from the Central zoo, some years ago. They travel through different destinations like Africa, Monte Carlo, Rome, London, New York etc. On the way, they joins a circus company, who are heading to Rome. They became part of that troupe, doing different tricks and fun filled games. At the same time, a lady cop belonging to the Animal Control department, is chasing the gang in different places. On a certain moment, the group is forced to leave the circus company.
The movie is notable for excellent visual effects and computer graphics sequences. The activities inside the casino, the chase sequence on road, the train journey, the trapezium and other performances done by the groups during the circus show, the ring jumping act done by the tiger etc are the best examples. The models and their emotions are created well. The advanced techniques including motion capture might have been used to animate the characters, anyway it is great.
There is no scope for logic in such animated movies, targeting kids. The team behind have been successful in delivering ultimate entertainment here.The comedy scenes are good, as expected. no one will forget the ring robbery episode at Vatican, though it is short. The 3d effects used in the movie are also good. Some of them will surprise you and created the required feel.
