Awesome / Penguins of Madagascar

Go To

  • Everything Private does in the third act:
    • He utilizes the paperclip that he took from Rico and escapes being mutated by Dave.
    • He even gives Classified (and by extension, all of North Wind) a What the Hell, Hero? speech when they decide to go back to their headquarters instead of immediately rescuing the penguins.
    • He becomes the antidote for saving the penguins by using his cuteness.
    • And when Dave breaks into the glass dome of the mutant-ray to get him, Private punches Dave in the face. WITH HIS BUTT-HAND!

  • The very beginning when the baby penguins sees Private's egg rolling. Skipper immediately races after it, even though the adults tell him to ignore it. From there the team faces a cliff, an army of leopard seals, and in the end blow up a ship!
  • The introduction of the North Wind. Unfortunately, that's about as cool as they get in the entire movie.
  • The Penguin's intitial mission to capture Dave. It looks like another awesome success like all their previous missions until Dave escapes down a pipe.
  • The entire sequence starting from when the penguins find out that they were in a box headed to Madagascar to them landing in the desert with a bouncy castle. It's done in one "shot", and it's amazing.
  • Skipper throwing a Cheezy Dibble at the Medusa Serum remote!
  • In the beginning of the movie, the penguins break into Fort Knox. Not for the gold, but to get to one of the vending machines.

How well does it match the trope?
