Critic Reviews for March of the Penguins
Watch them march to the very extremes of extremis, though, and it's easy to feel awe. Life must beget life, whatever the cost.
Some of the eggs and chicks freeze, and the parents' cries are painful to hear (probably more for us than for them).
French director Luc Jacquet and a team of incredibly brave (and heavily bundled) documentary filmmakers captured this complicated mating ritual with strikingly crisp photography that's both grand and intimate.
The avian protagonists' comical ungainliness on land and deadpan manner make for adorable viewing, while the austere, glacial landscape is consistently breathtaking.August 5, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for March of the Penguins
Jan 19, 2012Compelling narration from Freeman and stunning storytelling. Score also did the work for the film. It's a lovely documentary of the lives of penguins.Sylvester K Super Reviewer
Jan 16, 2012Gorgeous story of the march of the emperor penguins, truly one of the most unique species in the animal kingdom. The film uncomfortably stradles the border of attributing human qualities to their subjects but the footage is breathtaking.John B Super Reviewer
Nov 02, 2011March of the Penguins a truly remarkable film. It is enchantingly moving and you must have a stone cold black heart to not enjoy this spectacle. Absolutely incredible, greatly emotional and a sincerely unfortuante true story turned into entertainment by cinematic geniuses.Directors C Super Reviewer
Sep 06, 2011A documentary that has everything for everyone, it's superbly shot, the way it tells a "story" is very well explored with a sweet and bittersweet tone that makes wonders for this type of documentary.Francisco G Super Reviewer
