The film is a klutzy rearrangement of documentary footage into a forced story arc narrated in first person by Tim Allen.

This mainstream theatrical release is inferior to its shorter educational-film cousin.

The 3D film is a celebration of their remarkable tenacity with enough high dramas and cute moments to keep you enthralled.

Sharp digital photography makes this Antarctic documentary worth a look for nature-movie fans, even though it's both childish and unoriginal.

There are some nice images of the teeming penguin population, and great fun to be had witnessing the love life, and indeed sex life, of penguins.

Save the price of the 3D ticket and take them to the zoo instead.

David Attenborough's authoritative narration is preferable to the sonorous commentary read by Morgan Freeman in the English version of the French picture.

Despite having already seen March Of The Penguins a number of times, I still found this 3D documentary from Sir David Attenborough to be utterly fascinating.

The 3D photography is shallow and muddy, although a David Attenborough voiceover helps sustain interest.

It's not as epic as March Of The Penguins, or as stunning as the BBC's usual slo-mo nature porn - but with nary an animated tap dance in sight, it's still king of the 3D penguins.

Audience Reviews for Adventures of the Penguin King 3D

I adore penguins, I love them with all my heart. So after I received the Blu-ray for Christmas, I just had to set up all of my cuddly toy penguins on the sofa so we could watch this together. It was a great experience to see such stunning photography in beautiful resolution. Those familiar with penguins wont be too surprised by anything in this documentary, but Attenborough's voice echoes with authority. The film also contains some extraordinarily delicate moments such as penguin realising the egg he has been incubating is actually a rock. I just wanted to curl up and cry. Seeing these creatures in their natural habitat really does slap a smile on my face and I hope to see more penguin documentaries in the future. It's a heartwarming tale about a penguin finding love and raising his child.
