Critic Reviews for Adventures of the Penguin King 3D

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

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.

Daily Express

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

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.
