Happy Feet Two
Every step counts.
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.
As someone who disliked the original Happy Feet (I still struggle to see what is appealing about watching a bunch of penguins murder pop songs) I really wasn’t all that excited by the prospect of a sequel. Well my lack of enthusiasm proved correct because this is even uglier, even more annoying and ultimately even more unsatisfying than the first film.
Although technically accomplished I find the strange semi-photorealism art direction really ugly and it lacks the character and appeal of more traditional looking animated features. Mumble, the hero of the first, is now a father and has to teach his insecure son to find his own talent whilst also trying to help the other penguins out of a giant…
My advice to you: If you are going to watch Happy Feet 2, do not do it with a hangover.
With around 350 plots going on at once, bizarre song mash-ups which feel tired throughout and not one character feeling like they've had effort put into them, this is a real clusterfuck which gets by on looking incredibly pretty.
WAS ist das?
DAS soll ein Kinderfilm sein? Das ist ein "Bollywood Greanpeace Animal Animation Drama". Entweder es wird getanzt, wobei die deutsch übersetzten Gesangseinlagen völlig daneben sind, oder es wird dramatisch die Zerstörung der Polkappen in Szene gesetzt.
Absolut NICHTS für Kinder. Da war nicht eine witzige Szene, bei der meine Kids lachen konnten und unser 3-Jähriger fand des Film gruselig und hat sich ins Kinderzimmer verkrochen.
Den halben Stern gibt`s für die grafische Gestaltung des Szenenbilds, das war es aber auch schon.
Man muss dazu sagen, dass ich den ersten Teil nicht gesehen habe. Vermute aber, dass der genauso wenig Kindertauglich ist.
Didn't really hold my attention.
best film ever!
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Viewed on The Movie Network
Meh. I was on the computer and this was on cable TV at the office. Technically good animation but not to my taste. The story had issues. Like, go-see-a-therapist issues.
I do like penguins though. So 2 stars.
Não tão bacana como o primeiro, mas, ainda assim, uma fofura.
Not as cool as the first, but, yet, sweetie.
Filme muito fraco, nem mesmo as crianças tem paciência para assistir.
Desbocado musical pop con impresionantes efectos visuales que entiende el valor del entretenimiento infantil.
