MARCH OF THE PENGUINS (Theatrical Release USA 2005)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

March of the Penguins
—worth both time and money investment—easily becomes a classic documentary with high educational value factored into an exceptionally entertaining format. While the audience can view this documentary in a comfortable home setting, these cinematographers provide breathtaking film scenes in temperatures well below -50 degrees Fahrenheit and endure 120-mile-per-hour winds to capture an event for the whole world to see. At a final one hour and twenty minutes of actual show time the movie becomes an ode to technical editing skill. Bravo! Watch for the 2017 sequel film, March of the Penguins 2: The Next Step. Great work for Director Luc Jacquet.
