The return of the zoo animals.
1 December 2018 | by joefletch-16443See all my reviews

Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are back for the third Madagascar movie. This one is the best Madagascar movie in the franchise. It has good animation. Likeable characters, a strong villain and a good use of slapstick humour.
