Happy Feet Two


Happy Feet Two

Critics Consensus

The animation is as eye-popping as ever, but Happy Feet Two's narrative is too noisily incoherent to recapture the Oscar-winning charm of its predecessor.

Movie Info

Happy Feet Two returns audiences to the magnificent landscape of Antarctica in superb 3D. Mumble, The Master of Tap, has a problem because his tiny son, Erik, is choreo-phobic. Reluctant to dance, Erik runs away and encounters The Mighty Sven-a penguin who can fly! Mumble has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model. But things get worse when the world is shaken by powerful forces. Erik learns of his father's "guts and grit" as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and all manner of fabulous creatures-from tiny Krill to giant Elephant Seals-to put things right. -- (C) Warner Bros

Critic Reviews for Happy Feet Two

All Critics (119) | Top Critics (34)

  • 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.

  • Preaches acceptance but requires assimilation. You dance or you die. Join the party, swim with the swarm.

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

  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Happy Feet Two

My Cuteness meter was off the chart when I saw this film. The animation is incredible, the music is incredibly well done, the characters are fleshed out after the first film, and it is incredibly well pulled off in the comedy and in the music. It's strange how the two best film's i've seen this year are animated films. But overall, this film is incredibly well animated, the songs are well done, and the comedy has a very good amount of subtly.

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.
