With kids and their parents expected to make a beeline for this film, the target audience's all set in taking home these none too subtle reminders. The connection smooths the black and white into a grayish-sick. The penguins' and the people's feet and vocal cords are starting to hurt - because they tried to tap dance and sing through a movie that had exhausted its potential. Much of the plot centres around how Mumble tries to connect with his young son, and finds it terribly tough to do so, but adversity no thanks to the threat faced by the entire Emperor Penguin community left stranded due to shifting ice, provides the opportunity especially when Erik can witness just how innovative and heroic his dad can actually be, compared to his idol Sven. What is really perplexing about these two characters - beside the fact that they sing songs that range from Wang Chung to Rick Astley - is their agenda. They had no point at all!!! The specially made songs for the movie Bridge of Light made little sense with the movie, despite how beautiful they were.
Another problem I had was the dark tone of the film. As for Carmen, she was pretty forgettable apart from being Ramon's love interest but she has a seductive Spanish accent. I think that you have to have a lot going on to keep the attention of kids these days. To recap, do not see this movie. The first thing that got my attention was why mumble was somehow un- aged. This film aims to tell to children not to lie and how important the friendship is.
Like Sven, they are creatures outside their element, and also like Sven, a little of them goes a long way. Animation has come a long way since Casper the Friendly ghost I'm dating myself, huh? Characters of Matt Damon and Brad Pitt worked out really well. There's too much of too little. As a 12 year-old, I suppose I haven't watched even a total of 30 movies or such to rate this as 10 but in my opinion, Happy Feet 2 is almost as good as the first. Tonight I finally saw the sequel. There's a stoic seriousness in the story, though balanced by both Brad Pitt and Matt Damon's Krill characters being nothing other than comedic fodder with their rapid fire dialogue exchange, and Pitt's Will being one of the most delusional animated characters for some time to come. I'm not sure how they achieved their end result, but it sounded like they chipmunked an adult, since Eric's voice sounded bizarre and metallic, and had way too much vibrato for a little kid.
Mumble, der begnadetste Stepptänzer unter den Pinguinen, macht sich Sorgen um seinen Sohn Eric: Dieser kann mit tänzerischen Choreografien so gar nichts anfangen. Like a two year old or something. It managed to get made and released. Added into this milieu is a side-plot involving two krill named Will Brad Pitt and Bill Matt Damon who are existentialists and also curious to know what lies outside their swarm. The flying doesn't work, since penguins can't fly no matter how hard they believe in themselves and flap their wings, so in despair, Mumble starts tap dancing, something that was ignored for an entire hour of movie. George Miller assume the entire directorial responsibility this time round, with the story co-written by Warren Coleman, Paul Livingston and George Miller somewhat making this a little bit darker in tone, with much less comedy, with more of a dark, brooding overtone that hammers home its environmental message.
When the penguins sing, the musical numbers are grating. I was bored almost the entire time. Happy Feet 2 drags on for one hour and 40 very long minutes. This made the movie feel longer than it was, for reasons I cannot put my finger on. Erik and a few outcasts travel away from his penguin brothers to find their identity.
What happened to Fat Joe? It is not surprising that Robin really knows how to make his characters stand out since he has done numerous voice projects in the past Genie in the Aladdin films, Dr. If you enjoyed the first Happy Feet, then you will also enjoy this one just not as much. I would definitely recommend this movie, for Happy Feet 2 will be interesting for both children and adults. Keeps the film large and worth it to the cinema and 3D. With all of their technology and talented filmmakers, they can make as many unnecessary sequels as they want. The rest of the penguins start dancing too, and more and more different species show up to dance the penguins out of their entrapment. The cute pictures of penguins sold my kids, who lost interest after the third song.
The penguins and other animals were fun to watch and for the most part realistic. There were funny and slightly interesting bits here and there but they were really not enough to save this one. Mumble has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model. He finally gets away and thinks he is a penguin that can fly, but he is really a bird. A lot of animation movies nowadays share quite a similar way of storytelling, and that's where Happy Feet 2 stands out from the crowd. Just a lot of unnecessary things scattered throughout.
He has legitimate problems confidence issues or something but the problem is that once Eric's shortcoming's are introduced, they fade into the background and are never brought up again. After viewing the sequel, it very much does seem unnecessary and wholly forgettable within ten minutes after you walk out of the theater, which is disappointing to say the least. It also seemed creepy that mumble had a son looking the way he was in the movie. This is interspersed with a horrid solo by Eric. The problem of Mumble's tap dancing was already solved.
It is hard to tell one from another, except one that is sporting a sweater. A whole musical number just to calm upset Erik down? The movie just seemed to have a number of encounters loosely strung together with no outstanding purpose of it all, unlike the original with the fact that different can be the one thing that saves everybody. There is tiny story, very little. It involves the penguin Mumbles voiced by Elijah Wood , the subject of the previous picture, who is now grown up and has a son. I unlike Catt was not thrilled by the krill, I have yet to figure out what the krill was the point of the krill storyline with Bill the Krill Matt Damon and Will the Krill Brad Pitt other than to add some big names to the film since Norma Jean Nicole Kidman and Memphis Hugh Jackman did not reprise their roles. When the krill light up the sea, that is really cool.
I still find it hard to believe that this movie took 5 years to make. It's then up to Mumble, Eric, and Eric's two sidekicks to save the day. Her song 'Bridge Of Light' not your average angsty Pink song to encourage Erik to find more fish for the colony whilst being trapped by a giant iceberg is beautiful as well as the scene that accompanies it. This would be a pretty good film for kids though. Happy Feet 2 is not a bad movie. I get that mumble was a little bit slower than everybody else, It was what helped ostracize him aside from his lack of vocal ability and preference for dance, but that doesn't mean that he was a complete abnormality. Every boy needs a hero, and it works when one is close by.
