HappyFeetTwo.jpgKIDS FIRST! youth film critic Anthony Aranda (age 9) follows up his recent review of Happy Feet – a KIDS FIRST! Film Critics Search title released on DVD and Blu-ray earlier this month – with a reivew of the animated film’s sequel, Happy Feet Two. Awesome animation is just part of what makes Anthony urge families to go see it.

I just finished watching a really funny movie called Happy Feet Two! This movie is about Mumble (voiced by Elijah Wood) and Gloria’s (voiced by Pink) baby penguin named Erik (voiced by Ava Acres), who wanders off from all the other penguins. His father, Mumble, tries to find him, and while he is gone a big iceberg blocks the penguins from going anywhere.

My favorite characters are Mumble, Erik and two krill named Will and Bill (voiced by Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, respectively). I like Mumble because he is really funny and he sometimes gets mad at Erik. I like Erik because he tries to get his father to take more chances and he is almost always happy. I like the two krill because they show how friendships take work. They split up in the movie, get lost and then find each other again and make a stronger friendship.

My favorite part of this movie is when Will and Bill start tapping on the ice from underneath —kind of like how Mumble taps on the ice from above. Then a whole bunch of other krill join in and they light up the ice with all of their tapping. I think this is really cool because it is neat to see all the lights and how they actually do that.

The animation and special effects in this movie are really cool. When the krill light up the sea, that is really cool. When some of the ice goes tumbling down, the effects of that are really neat. The animation in this movie is awesome. The penguins look very real and [the filmmakers] do a good job at making them talk.AnthonyAranda_190x250.jpg

I recommend this movie for ages two and up. This movie does have a few scary parts that might be frightening for kids younger than two. For example, when one of the elephant seals falls into a big hole, his kids get really scared because they think he might get stuck down there forever. That part made me a little nervous. This is a great family movie that shows happiness and friendship. Go out and see this movie when it comes out in theaters near you.
