Mumble, the master of tap,

Erik runs away and
encounters The Mighty Sven
-a penguin who can fly!
Mumble has no hope of
competing with this charismatic
new role model. But things get
worse when the world is shaken

HAPPY FEET TWO was okay but a mediocre sequel to the first HAPPY FEET movie (click here) which is because of the secondary plot that focuses on the two Krill characters that were done by Brad Pitt and Matt Damon that has nothing to do with the film's story-line. Most of the the original movie's voice cast such as Elijah Wood and Robin Williams have returned to do their characters. I praise the work of the singer Pink who did a good job for replacing the late Brittany Murphy for voicing Gloria as well as the songs such as "Under Pressure" by Queen for the film's climax.

For anyone who has seen its predecessor, the sequel is not so good to the original but would have been better if HAPPY FEET TWO would focus more on the main story instead of the Krill subplot.

Star rating: (3/5) Average
