The Penguin King Review

Image for The Penguin King

A documentary following the growing pains of a King Penguin on South Georgia as it heads awkwardly towards adulthood.

★★★★★

In this film about the developing life of a King Penguin, the filmmakers ascribe notions of romance, chummy relationships with ‘cousins’ and various other nonsenses that are both needless and dishonest. Visually, there’s nothing here to compete with Frozen Planet or March Of The Penguins. Though the 3D is good, 3D rocks aren’t diverting for very long.

Wildly inferior to both Sir David's Beeb work and March Of The Penguins.
