Unnecessary Sequel

Just like the 'Cars' sequel, the 'Happy Feet' sequel doesn't have the charm of the original. Coincidentally both Cars 2 and Happy Feet Two were released in 2011. 'Happy Feet Two' follows the story of 'Erik' who is the son of 'Mumble' and 'Gloria' from Happy Feet. Just like Mumble, Erik seems to be finding difficult to fit into the society. Erik can't dance! While the story may seem very similar, the first-half is quite engaging with the creative story line of interesting characters like the krills and Sven the puffin. The second half is honestly a let-down and the whole penguins stuck by the wall of ice thing didn't work well. Most the things that happen feel unnecessary and extravagant. Thus by the time we reach the climax, the story is all over the place. Erik doesn't get the spotlight he needed to get and even in the end where he shows his talent it was very less impact. Despite its good moments, Happy Feet Two feels like bland unnecessary sequel to a heart-warming film.

RATING: [2/5]

music was better than the first but the plot was lame.

Happy feet two is still entertaining and cute, but without the original happy feeling that you felt in the first one.

The story this time around is a little more unfocused, with some superfluous characters, but the animation is just as impressive and voice cast is expanded in this sequel to the Academy Award-winning HAPPY FEET. In HAPPY FEET TWO, Mumble and Gloria have a son Erik who is having difficulty finding his place in the community. Will he sing? Will he dance? He doesn't know. Meanwhile, shifting Arctic ice traps the majority of the Emperor penguin colony and Mumble goes to off to find help. What I noticed as different this time was that there wasn't as much singing/dancing. This was an element that really enriched the first one and made me enjoy it a little more. The story in this sequel had less of that, and at times was a little dull and borderline depressing. Still, there is a happy ending because, you know, it's a kid's movie. Also, while it was nice to have a larger cast full of recognizable voices, a couple of the characters they play were largely unnecessary and distracting to the overall story-line. The two biggest offenders, despite how entertaining they were to watch, were Brad Pitt and Matt Damon as two krill. Why were they in the movie? Who knows? They never interacted with the main story in any meaningful way, and just seemed like an excuse to get a couple more big-name actors on the marquee. A little more understandable in terms of the themes is the inclusion of a puffin named Sven, who can fly. His primary function is to provide inspiration and guidance to Erik although, as penguins (and the audience) already know, they can't fly even if they wanted to. Despite the character being somewhat unneeded, Hank Azaria did a great job voicing him. The rest of the voice cast, some of which were replacements (Common for Fat Joe, and P!nk for Brittany Murphy), also did a good job, but P!nk was probably the least compelling of them all. She's a decent singer, but her acting could definitely use some work. Overall, the film was slightly less entertaining than its predecessor, but nonetheless enjoyable in its own right.

It has the same heart of its predecessor by settings, charms, and music, but the sequel's bigger and better. (A)

This sequel lacks some of the appeal that the original Happy Feet had.

There are messages about global warming, and looking past differences in order to work together with others.

The dancing penguins are back for more frivolities in Happy Feet Two. When a rogue iceberg imprisons the emperor penguins in a canyon, Mumble must seek the help of the other Antarctic wildlife in order to get them free. Another all-star cast has been assembled, and includes such new additions as Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and P!nk (who replaces the late Brittany Murphy). However, the characters aren't as interesting or fun this time round. And the music isn't that soulful or clever. Still, Happy Feet Two has its moments and delivers a few good laughs.

There are cute moments here for sure, but the film is not really memorable. It's a decent follow up to the first film in this series, but doesn't quite match it.

Though its a bit overused and the story is fragile but then It is fun to watch because of the great visual effects... and the story flowed fine and the ending went well...

The animation is stunning but the plot and pacing is far too plodding and boring

The first Happy Feet was OK in my opinion, but it did not need a sequel! Really disappointing effort! I give it a 4 1/2/10.

It was interesting to say the least

Its too bad Happy Feet 2 was a flop because I actually enjoyed it. The elephant seals and krill were excellent addition to the penguins. Lots of diversity, including Brad Pitt and Matt Damon as inseparable pair of krill. Although I was irritated by Robin Williams' exaggerated antics, the film was definitely not half as irritating like the Ice Age franchise. But yet Ice Age made a killing at the box office. 600 people involved in the production of this film were retrenched after earning much less than expected at the box office.
