Just don't see it in an IMAX 'DOME'

The movie itself is great. I thought the first "Madagascar" film was one of Dreamworks stronger computer-animated films. This one is a worthy successor. I, however, saw this movie in an IMAX Dome. The Dome format with this movie leaves something to be desired. My whole family agreed that it's much too big for this type of character driven movie. It's hard to comprehend what's happening during the faster sequences because you can't see the whole screen at once. When two characters are having a conversation with both of them on the screen at once; due to the curved dome they are on opposite sides of the room. This makes it harder work for the audience having to look from one to the other and you miss how the other character you are not watching reacts. I'm not knocking the Dome format itself hear, but rather the choice to show this movie in that format. I've seen nature documentaries in the Dome before, and they achieved a much grander and vast scale when played in the Dome form.

I ENJOY THE MADAGASCAR MOVIES. THE ACTING IS SO GENUINE, YOU THINK YOU ARE ACTUALLY SEEING THE VOICE ACTORS IN ANIMAL SUITS :). GOOD STORY LINE, FUNNY HANDBAG LADY, A MUST SEE. TAKE THE ENTIRE FAMILY.

IM NOT GONNA LIE THIS MOVIE WAS AMAZINGLY FUNNY, IT JUST FELT LIKE SOMETHING WAS MISSING. THE MOVIE FELT EXTREMELY SHORT, BUT ALL IN ALL IT HAD A GOOD STORY TO IT FOR BEING A CHILDRENS MOVIE. I LOVE MADAGASCAR SO FAR. GO WATCH IT

The movie was great. I never go to regular movies any longer. It is IMAX for me always. To top off this movie my group (5) was the only ones in the theater. Not only did I save money and time by using Fandango we enjoyed a "personal" showing of the movie. What more can you ask for. //end//
