Comments on Movie: Penguins of Madagascar (2014)
"You have to respect a kids’ cartoon that kicks off with a Werner Herzog joke — even one so willfully, wondrously stupid and lighthearted as Penguins of Madagascar." - Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine's Vulture.

"Smart-mouth flightless waterfowl bring the funny in this animated spy adventure." - Soren Anderson, Seattle Times.

"Frenetic and frequently funny, Penguins Of Madagascar represents the DreamWorks Animation franchise style—which boils down to self-aware, but naïve, talking animals who learn kid-friendly life lessons—at its most palatable." - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club.

"Penguins of Madagascar will make you weep with its short attention span pacing, but you'll be laughing too much to care." - Christian Toto,

"Adorable and fun! This is a family film, not just for children, not just for spy lovers; it's intended for everyone and the whole film is actually quite amusing!" - Rosalyn Lim.

Movie Review: Penguins of Madagascar (2014)
The penguin squad and the baby squid. 
(But it looks like an octopus to me!)

Penguins of Madagascar (2014) is adorable and fun. It has plenty of hilarious references, adventure and Private Jokes, which are witty and astonishing. Also beautifully animated and filled with immeasurable cuteness, how could people of all ages not like this family film?

Baby Rico, Private, Kowalski and Skipper!

Nonetheless and honestly, for sure indiscriminate viewers would have a great time watching this fast paced animated film but highly selective audiences may be disappointed if they are looking for something like "mature or well-developed spy films". I hope I put my thoughts correctly in words. This film is not immature or effortless at all; it is just that for those who think this film suck, I could only comment this... This is a family film, not just for children, not just for spy lovers; it's intended for everyone and the whole film is actually quite amusing!

*Always check genre beforehand, they are made known for reason(s).*

Eva the owl.

Lastly, though I wouldn't deny there are some stuffs I do not agree or dissatisfied with this film, I still would say Penguins of Madagascar (2014) is a great spin-off film. At least, now I know more about the characters, can now differentiate the penguins easily, laughed at their amusing scenes and seen adorable animals throughout the film!!

PS. Love the adorable octopus minions and other lovely animals such as the owl!!

Penguins of Madagascar (2014) Behind the Scenes

Favorite Movie Character
Skipper and Hula Doll.

Skipper is my favorite penguin in this movie!! This is most likely due to the fact that he has leadership qualities; he has been leading his squad since they are baby penguins!! Although like most of the other characters - funny, silly and adorable - what's more and stand out about him is that he  is very optimistic and he always take care of his squad!!

PS. I liked Eva too, but ... they made her exactly like nothing more than an extra ... sigh. *_*
