92 minutes

Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private staring in their own movie! Their rival is Dr. Octavius Brine who wants to destroy the world. When he kidnaps them and takes them to Venice, they discover that he is not really a human but an octopus, Dave. And this is not the first time they meet. Dave was the protagonist of marine animals at Central Park Zoo, till Penguins of Madagascar came. Soon, zoo visitors stopped paying any attention to Dave, and streamed to see the Penguins. This is something that Dave never forgot and never forgave.

The Penguins of Madagascar will find an unexpected ally, that even helps them escape from the hands, or rather tentacles, of Dave. Βόρειος Άνεμος North WindA secret group called North Wind, led by Classified. With him is Eva, a beautiful owl, Short Fuse, a demolitioner seal and Corporal, a polar bear. We cannot tell you the real name of Classified, but we can tell you he is a very cute grey wolf. Cute, but narrow-minded and spoiled. He is not willing to understand that the Penguins can help him. He even packs them and mail them to Madagascar! But their paths will cross again. The Penguins of Madagascar and North Wind must cooperate, or they will not manage to beat Dave.

Our impressions and movie review:
Eva and Penguins of MadagascarThe Penguins of Madagascar had stolen the show in the Madagascar film series. They got their own series on Nickelodeon, “Operation Antarctica – 2012” a tv movie, and their own movie, which was released in 2014, was the natural consequence. Unfortunately, it lacks the magic and brilliance that distinguished them. To put it more simply, I have seen TV episodes on Nickelodeon with better written script. There are however a couple of very funny moments and young children will not have any difficulty to love this movie. Maybe they know better 😉
