Rex, a young King Penguin, has been away from his home for three years, learning to hunt in the wild oceans, but now he's back - in Penguin City. His mission: to find a mate, settle down and raise a chick. But can he survive the numerous predators and the harsh conditions on an isolated island at the bottom of the world? This is the journey of a typical bachelor King Penguin from awkward adolescent to accomplished adult. It's a family tale, of love and adventure, tragedy and triumph - all told

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.
There's little we haven't seen before, including farting elephant seals.
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.
David Attenborough's authoritative narration is preferable to the sonorous commentary read by Morgan Freeman in the English version of the French picture.

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