A bit slow. I'd be far more interested in a film about the making of this film. Wait for DVD.
This is a great flick. Very interesting documentary. Lots of cute scenes, a few sad scenes, several funny scenes. Fantastic film footage. Truly a great movie for all ages.
Although March of the Penguins might be considered by some to be a "made for TV documentary", it is well worth seeing on the big screen. You'll not get the same visual effect and feel the intense emotion at home. Morgan Freeman, as always, is a fantastic narrator. It was also nice to see a theater full of dads, moms and children.
"March of the Penguins" is an incredible documentary about the year in the life of Penguins who lived in harsh conditions. This film probaby could've gone IMAX and very few people will see it. But I'm glad that the movie is going though regular theratres, so I could get a chance to enjoy the film. The film tells the life cycle of the Penguins from life to death. How they keep warm, how they mate, and how baby Penguins adapt to nature. What's more, I like the cinemagraphy of the movie. The shots of the South Pole and the icy landscape are beautiful.
Beautifully done, but it was billed as a family movie and my children - ages 7, 6, 3, 2, and I thought it was too long and too "documentaryish" to hold their attention--it would be better suited to an older family.
