Its use of pop music is the only thing that makes it anywhere near as memorable as the first movie.

“There is no worry”. This sequel to the original oscar winner is surely a dumb one. The lines of animation might be splendid, but it lacked the tempo and gusto the original gave. The emotional response, the artifacts and the plot were very well handled in the first part.
Director George Miller does not provide the required elements of joy in the movie. It is more sophisticated and looks a bit odd in terms of presentation and narrative. The second part crumbles slightly with sub plots and lot of characters to be exposed and handled. The narrative goes pulpy. It takes awhile before the main plot begins.

It takes more than song and dance to capture an audience for 90 minutes. The imagery of bright colors of new sweaters from the aliens and marine life under the artic ice is impressive. There were many mini-plots throughout the film. The main plot line is the rescue of penguins trapped by a seperated ice shelf, and this cuts them off from the feeding grounds. All the old friends from the first Happy Feet are there, with Gloria voiced by Pink. There are new friends to be found around Emperor Land, with a ton of music scattered through the film, even when it is not needed. The only complaint I have about the film is the lack of cohesiveness linking the mini-plots together. The movie seemed to skip around with randomness. My kids liked the movie and thought it was worth the $1 rental fee.

If you are one of those people who avoid , like I do, movies that lure you in with the promise of pure mindless entertainment but end up preaching an underlying environmental message, then here is a little heads up: Happy Feet 2 is something that falls squarely in that category. Call me old fashioned, but I really like it when the people who create the animated movies don’t try to insert their deeply held convictions into the storyline. Seriously, I just came to see some penguins dance.
THE GOOD: I need to be honest with you and admit that I am probably one of the few American parents who has NOT seen the first installment of Happy Feet. It’s possible that, because I went to the sequel without seeing the one that started it all, I might have missed something that would have …
