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.

Leonard Maltin

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.

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.

It's all perfectly acceptable viewing and it has its heart in the right place, but with only one memorable musical number and very little comedy, it's just not as fresh and fun as the first film.

If there's a saving grace, it's the visuals, especially the beautiful scenes of orange krill. But that's about all.

We get a feeling we've seen it all before.

Frankly, it seems like the story took a backseat in favour of the visuals, coming across as a loosely related series of song and dance numbers that work better separately than in the context of the film.

For all the noise and flapping, the movie, like its heroes, remains flightless.

The gotta-move protagonist of the first animated, Antarctica-set feature -- a misfit young Emperor penguin named Mumble -- returns for the sequel. Only this time he's all grown up... and a lot less fun.

Though it may lack the heart or jeopardy to be a real attention-grabber it's perfectly tolerable entertainment these holidays.

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… More

Movie was okay. Those little penguins were really cute.

Happy Feet Two took the darker tone of the first film and made it much more kid oriented, and I am not sure if I like that. What I loved about the first film… More

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… More

I actually liked this a lot more than the first film. The characters felt more developed and they went through a more interesting journey. Some brilliant… More
