It is easy to say that this year’s The Wild is a cheap rip-off of last year’s Madagascar because it is absolutely TRUE! And it is not just because the head of character animation is Rex Grignon who is probably related. It’s not because you get a lot more for your DVD buck if you buy Madagascar including a fabulous short called: The Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper. It is just that is just so much better. So much more creative. The stories are very similar on a rough level but with The Wild I kept saying to myself… why did they make this movie? Whereas Madagascar is a pleasurable experience that you don’t try to analyze as you watch… it’s just entertainment pure and fabulous.
See Madagascar and avoid The Wild!
