A film approximately 48 times worse than the original.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Liverpool Echo
December 2, 2011
The plot is flimsy and the script frequently off-key, heavy-handedly dealing with parenting and friendship issues then ladling on sickly sentiment.
Henry Barnes

Preaches acceptance but requires assimilation. You dance or you die. Join the party, swim with the swarm.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The visuals are frequently spectacular and the environmental concerns are admirable, but this simply doesn't have the charm of the original.

Effectively, it's a few computer-generated birds staring into the abyss for an hour and a half. I know exactly how they felt.

Film Journal International
December 1, 2011
Technically accomplished and otherwise uninspired sequel to the 2006 CGI hit about a dancing penguin in Antarctica.

This one is as stupid as it looks, which is saying something.

A shambles that's somehow both terribly lazy and hernia-inducingly overcranked at the same time. Disappointing.

It has its moments and is certainly not a bad film, but it fails to entertain in quite the same way.

Tim Evans
Sky Movies
November 30, 2011
Plot-wise it's a meandering, stuttering mess with tsunamis roaring into life only to mysteriously disappear, a fistful of plot strands meaninglessly loitering about and any sense of danger immediately undermined by all-too-obvious solutions.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Matthew Turner
November 30, 2011
Enjoyable sequel with colourful characters, some terrific song choices, strong vocal performances and an inspired and hilarious sub-plot, but it's slightly let down by a weak central story.

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

If Miller is fearless enough to spin this morally and logically complex tale, deepening it and strengthening it with tough, dark themes, his technical filmmaking prowess are equal to the task.

If the original, Academy-Award-winning "Happy Feet" left you with your toes tapping, then you'll leave this one with happy feet, too.

...perfectly adequate family fare for the holiday season, but it's very much a second-tier cartoon movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
Tim Brayton
Antagony & Ecstasy
November 23, 2011
A whirlwind of activity and energy, very little of which makes sense and none of which coheres.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
Jackie K. Cooper
November 23, 2011
A beautifully made movie that never matches the freshness and enthusiasm of the original
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Why are these movies so depressing?

If you are looking for a family fun holiday weekend then "Happy Feet Two" is for you.

Decent Films Guide

Overshadowed by more darkness, menace, heartache and anxiety than any talking-animal picture I can think of since Miller's last family-film sequel, the execrable Babe: Pig in the City.
