Penguin King, The (U)

Adventure, Drama, Family

The critical consensus

It’s not as epic as March Of The Penguins, or as stunning as the BBC’s usual slo-mo nature porn – but with nary an animated tap dance in sight, it’s still king of the 3D penguins.

Wildly inferior to both Sir David's Beeb work and March Of The Penguins.

There are some nice images of the teeming penguin population, and great fun to be had witnessing the love life, and indeed sex life, of penguins. It does have to be said, though, there is a fair bit of Disneyfication going on.

The 3D film is a celebration of their remarkable tenacity with enough high dramas and cute moments to keep you enthralled.
