I was able to watch this last night, no wait... Let me rephrase that, I was able to be a part of this movie last night and truly enjoyed it. Why do I say I was a part of it? Because the 3D on this movie is some of the very best 3D I have ever seen! I was sucked into this movie and felt I was truly there.
Though the movie is a bit cheesy with some weird scenes probably because it's aimed for younger kids, this is a 3D movie you DO NOT wanna miss.

Let me just say, that from beginning to end the 3D is nothing more than amazing. Do you like depth in your 3D movies? This movie has it, and I must say it's damn good. Do you like popout as well? Then you are in for a treat because it also has much of it also! Things will be popping out of your 3D TV so much you will feel as though you can reach out and touch them. I found myself actually pausing the movie to have a better look, and walking closer to grab things. Ashame you can't feel in 3D!rolleyes.gif

If you like 3D and want a movie to show off, Madagascar 3 Europe's Most Wanted is the movie for you! You will not regret getting this one.

We just watched it last night and I have to agree...the 3D was one of the best for animated movies (if not the best). I have not watched an animated movie in 3D for a bit now, so I can't remember what to compare it with. But it is definitely up there.

I just purchased the movie last night and we first watched in blu-ray.
We plan on watching and hopefully being awed by the 3D this weekend.
Great review and look forward to more content like this in the near future!

I'm curious why one would watch a 2D version first when both are in hand? Why not dive directly into the 3D format and just let the 2D version sit on the shelf forever unused?

This is extremely colorful and one of the best and most engaging (if not subtle) Blu-ray 3D presentations I've seen at home. This will be my new demo disc, with several sequences that really show off how fun and effective 3D can be. My family watched it two nights in a row and that has never happened before--and my youngest son never once took off his glasses, which is somewhat rare. It really held your interest visually.

PETER JACKSON: The theatrical versions are the definitive versions.

Poor Sammy just got the boot. His tale about growing up in the sea don't mean a thing anymore. Poor ole Samuel.

Didn't have much time last night to watch it but did scan through the chapters and I agree. This is the best animated 3D effects movie I have in my collection. Can't wait to enjoy the movie tonight non-stop. A few scenes I saw had extreme depth presentations that filled my viewing room with clarity and perfect convergence of the left and right eye images. This is one I need to study to see how they achieved this without eyestrain.

I was not planning to get this one but this thread sparked my curiosity. Thanks!

I decided to pick Madagascar 3 up based on some of the impressions from this thread and I wasn't disappointed; the story is entertaining, the voicework solid, the characters engaging, the animation outstanding and the 3D is superb with great, constant depth and a steady stream of stuff popping out towards you. It's all gimmicky but there's absolutely nothing wrong with that in a movie like this. I watched the movie on my 2010 Samsung active plasma and ghosting was also a complete non-factor so the movie should be very watchable no matter what kind of rig you may have. I've never really gotten the appeal or Pixar's 3D efforts as they almost seem embarrassed to crank up the effect but Dreamworks embraces the medium and gives you your money's worth.

Dreamworks really gets 3d. They aren't afraid to use it generously throughout. I still don't understand why most movies are so conservative with 3d. If people don't want the 3d so in your face, well then that's what 2d is for. Why settle for 2.5d?
