Critic Reviews for Happy Feet Two

All Critics (111) | Top Critics (31) | Fresh (51) | Rotten (60) | DVD (1)

If there's a saving grace, it's the visuals, especially the beautiful scenes of orange krill. But that's about all.

For all the noise and flapping, the movie, like its heroes, remains flightless.

Happy Feet was one of the greatest and most original animated films, but the sequel can't even decide what it's about for the first 40 minutes.

We get a feeling we've seen it all before.

The gotta-move protagonist of the first animated, Antarctica-set feature -- a misfit young Emperor penguin named Mumble -- returns for the sequel. Only this time he's all grown up... and a lot less fun.

The film reminds viewers young and old that to make a positive change, sometimes the little guy at the bottom of the food chain needs to stomp his feet.

It shares more in common with the brash lunacy of Rango than the safe, flat work of Arthur Christmas despite the similarly chilly locals of the latter.

Happy Feet Two is a fun uplifting family flick that accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do.

"Happy Feet Two" is to 2006's "Happy Feet" what "Babe: Pig in the City" was to "Babe," a clever and adorable original film remade with most of the charm wrung out of it.

The film might be too chaotic for some audiences, but for those willing to sit back and enjoy the rapid-fire ride, Happy Feet Two will bring a smile to your face.

Not a bad film, just a disappointing one.

Full Review… | March 9, 2012
Movie Metropolis

Miller has gone bigger and better on everything - the stakes are raised, the risk is greater, the fears are bigger, and, as a result, the pay-offs are better and the highs higher.

The Standard

It's a film that only deals in excess, so unless you're a deliriously happy person with a serious foot fetish, you'd best give Happy Feet Two a miss.

Back to Antarctica for this second helping of "The Dance of the Penguins," the voices are in fine form.

Top grade animation and entertaining voice performances from its star packed cast saves Happy Feet Two from drowning in its bigger is better approach.

Matt's Movie Reviews

More feet, more songs, more music, more characters ... more everything, but less of story than the original. The heart of the film is scattered, but it fails to connect as satisfactorily as it did before

Youngsters and their families will be captivated by the show and the superb techno-whizzery never ceases to amaze

This is it: the collectivist kiddie flick that makes it look like fun to work together for the betterment of all. Disgusting!

What Happy Feet Two lacks in robust narrative is made up in song and dance, which provides the thrills - as well as the stars of the hour, the krills.

It's a family-friendly food chain in which no one gets eaten.

Happy Feet Two is great to look at, but it goes off on odd tangents that prevent the plot from catching hold.

Aisle Seat

While 'Happy Feet' focused on the tap-dancing Emperor Penguin named Mumble... this one spends more time with his little son Erik... who is simply irresistible. If one agrees that penguins in general are cute, Erik ups the ante considerably.

At its best, this film offers some fantastic panoramic views of the kingdom of the multitudinous Emperor penguin.

Audience Reviews for Happy Feet Two

½

The laughter from its splendid supporting cast (Williams, Pitt, Damon) hard to miss, no doubt, but Happy Feet Two lacks the magic it's Oscar-winning predecessor had all due to its inconsistent story and cheesy references. The film still produces a pulse-pound beat and sound, just not as strong as the first. 3.5/5

Every step counts.

Not great but not bad either. Not much different from the first. It had penguins. All kinds of penguins. They all danced around and sang a bunch of hit singles. Only this time there is the whole Global Warming undertone. In short, I wish I could love this movie. But... There's too much of too little. I need more than just cute penguins, though. I need enjoyability to go with it. And while this film isn't bad at all, I can't recommend it except only for kids.

Mumble the penguin has a problem: his son Erik, who is reluctant to dance, encounters The Mighty Sven, a penguin who can fly! Things get worse for Mumble when the world is shaken by powerful forces, causing him to brings together the penguin nations and their allies to set things right.
