    One of the most ridiculously hyper-energetic and manic movies I've ever seen. I know attention spans are getting shorter, but damn, this is next level stuff; there isn't a single quiet moment. I guess the directors were worried that if they gave their audience time to think about it, even kids would realise just how stupid the plot is. The film has a certain charm to it, but it's also very tiring after a while.

    The one thing we can all agree on is that it's worth it just for Herzog's appearance.

    Penguins of Madagascar, about a quartet of penguin secret agents under threat from an octopus supervillain whose human disguise seems based on Joss Whedon is so frenetically paced, I spent the first act wondering why the hell any of it was happening. I eventually eased into it, and enjoyed its relentless action and 25-jokes-a-minute rhythm, but I'm not gonna lie, it was tiring. At its best, it riffed on superspy stories without slavishly parodying them, coming off more like Thunderbirds than Bond, though there is a sequence more or less pulled from Moonraker (it takes a warped mind...). At its worst, it tacks on a cheesy "message" at the end that doesn't really work in light of what happens next, but it's clear the movie doesn't really care about that, just the jokes. 2 years 11 months ago
