This is a National Geographic wildlife documentary, and a simple one at that. But we found it totally engrossing! The penguins are lovable, the photography spectacular, and Morgan Freeman's voice narrates the whole thing. You really find yourself pulling for these little birds!
It was a really interesting and very entertaining live-action nature documentary. It had really amazing cinematography, really great narration, great drama, great adventure, really great music and a very interesting story. It's one of the best nature documentaries I've ever seen. I will recommend this movie to both kids and adults.
Beautifully filmed under extraordinarily difficult conditions. Breath-taking, but a somber reminder of the struggle to survive that most animals face. Not for the very young -- this is not a Disneyfied version of nature.
The DVD has a film about the filming of March of the Penguins and a LooneyTunes Bugs Bunny/penguin short.
