Spectacular!By Kay from Worcester , 22 Nov 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This is better than any 1/2 hour documentary that appears on tv! Its got fabulous filming and focuses on the penguin's way of life and how they exist. Its a love story in a way because it focuses on the relationship bonds between mother, father and chick and how they rely on each other.
I am biased where penguins are concerned, because I think they are gorgeous creatures, but even my partner found this was an excellent well directed movie.

amazing filmBy rocketdog (9 reviews) from Carlisle , 15 Aug 2013absolutely loved this film, those little penguins are so courageous & loyal, intriguing insight into the harsh life they have in the artic, top documentary
Absolutely wonderful!By a customer , 26 Apr 2013Absolutely wonderful! Such amazing penguins -stars of this excellent documentary! Great narration too! It was the first film I'd seen where I learnt so much about penguins and enjoyed it! I really sympathised with their hardship! Excellent film for adults but too tedious for our 15-heard old son who stopped watching after 15 minutes! He missed a treat!
2 stars due to poor blu ray quality.By emperor10 (217 reviews) from newcastle upon tyne , 10 Dec 2012i had never seen this,and as all nature docos look superb in blu ray,i was really looking forward to this. What a disappoinment. As a blu mray,the picture is no clearer,no sharper than normal DVD quality. After 15 minutes, i took it off,and put on the blu ray of 'The Penguin King', and the difference is enormous - picture is absolutely amazing. So, if you are happy,and ok with normal DVD picture quality,then you will be happy with this,otherwise,prepare for a disappointment.
Morgan Freeman RulesBy OoooNomnomnom (7 reviews) , 12 Mar 2012i watched this after frozen planet but I think if I had watched it before it would have been so much better. The only thing that made this amazing was Morgan Freeman.
Entertaining documentaryBy a customer , 06 Jan 2012Entertaining documentary on penguins, I watched this several years ago and thought it was very interesting then and its still as entertaining now.
