“Absolutely love the first u0026#39;March of the Penguinsu0026#39;. It is visually stunning, informative, cute, fun to watch, emotionally investable and with adorable without being too much so penguins. It does help if already a major fan of nature documentaries and if one has a lifelong adoration for penguins, both the case with me (u0026#39;Pinguu0026#39; plays a major role in my love for penguins). Hearing that there was a follow up, part of me was intrigued but part of me also thought u0026quot;is this really necessary?u0026quot;u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026#39;March of the Penguins 2u0026#39;, or u0026#39;Lu0026#39;Empereuru0026#39; was a worthwhile watch and is recommended. Am not raving about it but liked it just about enough. It doesnu0026#39;t disgrace u0026#39;March of the Penguinsu0026#39; at all and has a lot of its great things, though it doesnu0026#39;t have the same amount of charm and magic and in a way it wasnu0026#39;t really needed. Morgan Freeman returning was a very good move and the right one, genius really and it would not have worked as well with somebody else.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eShall start with what u0026#39;March of the Penguins 2u0026#39; does well, which is a lot. It looks beautiful first and foremost. Especially the majestic scenery, that has sheer beauty and at times a suitably harsh atmosphere to show that such a beautiful environment is not all idyllic. The music has some playfulness, some lushness and some dramatic sweep, not feeling too intrusive which sometimes was the case with DisneyNature documentaries.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFurthermore, u0026#39;March of the Penguins 2u0026#39; entertains and educates. Doing a great job with making the viewer relate to the penguins, the offspring being particularly adorable. While there are playful moments, a good deal of the journey/story is poignant. Freeman is a perfect choice for narrator, and he brings booming gravitas and subtlety to the nice mix of facts and human-like story.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWill agree though that some of the material did feel a bit too derivative from looking as if it was lifted from elsewhere or too similar to footage in the first and at times repetitive from lacking sometimes variety.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere are times too when the cuteness early on is a little overkill. Other documentaries have information that is more illuminating and that is fresher, which added to the derivative feel.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall, not great but very worthwhile. 7/10.”
