Absolutely beautiful

Yeah, everyone can keep their jokes about 'but its just a stupid movie about penguins', but it shows just how lame Hollywood is these days when people would RATHER watch a bunch of penguins just living life, then to see another explosive-filled mindless heartless piece of hollywood trash.

This documentary is beautiful, heart warming, romantic, shocking, sad, and even at times a bit ... read more

I don't think I could possibly understand the fascination with penguins to such a point that this was made into a major motion picture. This could have easily been translated into a one hour special on the Discovery channel.

An amazing documentary. The film itself is beautifully shot, but even more beautiful is the glimpse into the pulse of nature as embodied in the penguins, who journey far and away in the harshest climate in order to give life to their offspring. The film is more romantic than scientific, that is, the filmmakers attempts to give a human voice (literally as Morgan Freeman does the English narration t... read more

This courtship will begin with a long journey - a journey that will take them hundreds of miles across the continent by foot, in freezing cold temperatures, in brittle, icy winds and through deep, treacherous waters ...

An average movie

“If I recall correctly, I saw this movie at my aunt's when I was on holiday in France. My wife was pretty sick (food poisoning or something like that) and while she was recovering, I ended up watching a whole bunch of dvds my aunt owned. Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. However, I ended up with some rather mixed feelings. First of all, it is indeed quite an intriguing documentary. The visuals were often really amazing and it was quite fascinating to follow these penguins. Still, there was one thing that did really bother me and that was the narration (personally, I saw the original French version but I don't think the language was the issue here). Apparently, the makers thought it would be a great idea to add some pseudo poetry-philosoph” read more

"A look at the annual journey of Emperor penguins as they march - single file - to their traditional breeding ground. Documenting nature at it's most beautiful. A story that is mostly uplifting, sometimes sad, sometimes funny - but one for the whole family to watch."

"The fact that penguins have voice actors makes this film worse than its reputation claims. This should have been more like a real documentary."

"14th of October, Digibox Viimeistään siinä vaiheessa, kun pingviinit alkavat puhumaan, muuttuu myös suhtautuminen koko elokuvaan. Pingviinien matka toimisi sata kertaa paremmin, jos se olisi ylipitkä dokumenttisarjan jakso, eikä koko perheen elokuva. Leffan seasta löytyy jotain todella huonoa siirappimusaa, joka yhdistetään eräässä myötähäpeää aiheuttavassa kohtauksessa pingviinien väliseen paritteluun. Katsottava elokuva hyvän kuvauksensa ja upeiden maisemiensa ansiosta. Osc"
