Back then, this flick was a huge succees and even surprisingly won the Best Animated Feature Film Academy award. Indeed, this 'small' Australian production was able to beat the giants Pixar and Dreamworks. All this made me quite curious and I finally checked it out. Honestly, I was rather positevely surprised by the end results. Indeed, the animation is quite awesome and really realistic, you have the feeling you are looking to some real penguins but they were still able to make them funny and to give some personality. I'm not so sure about the singing and the dancing penguins but, for the young kids who are after all the target audience, it was enjoyable enough. The story was nothing mindblowing but it was entertaining enough and, eventually, I cared about the charaters. To conclude, it is a beautiful and original animated features and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in animated flicks.
