HAPPY FEET TWO (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì


Happy Feet Two
, despite the fact that its music does not seem to fit its scenes, has phenomenal musical scoring. This becomes most evident when Gloria (Voice of Pink) starts to sing to sooth her son Eric (Voice of Ava Acres) toward the middle of the film. Pink performs a wonderful rendition of the song, ”Bridge of Light,” which enhances the emotion of the moment, but the song itself seems almost out of place with the events at that point in the movie. The story timing seems confusing as when the tidal wave begins at the early part of the first act but does not progress as expected until the half-way mark of the film. The comical elements with the Krill are creative and strengthen themselves with the voices of Brad Pitt and Matt Damon. While the script does not seem as straight forwardly written as its prequel, the movie earns its watch and delivers a take-home, ‘feel good’ emotion.
