Reviews

Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
Escape 2 Africa is pretty tame, but it knows how to keep its own turf tidy.
75
Chicago Tribune - Michael Phillips
The visual style is typical, ultra crisp computer animation, bright, sharp, somewhat clinical.

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
This is a brighter, more engaging film than the original "Madagascar."
70
The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
Cartoons can get away with being serviceable and skillful without much creativity since they have an endlessly renewing audience. "Mad 2" surfs along on such waves, entertaining youngsters while mildly amusing adults.

Variety - Todd McCarthy
Lively and quite funny without being obnoxious, this follow-up smoothly mixes the original's New York Zoo escapees with a number of engaging new characters.
