The original Happy Feet and its sequel don’t look or feel like other movies for kids.


Director George (Mad Max) Miller is a maximalist director who opens up the usual kid flick palette with swooping cameras, wide-open vistas and beautifully effective 3D.


Featuring a cast of thousands — animated penguins as far as the eye can see and “krillions” of krill — Happy Feet Two is made on a scale that would make Cecil B. DeMille proud.


It’s also a step above most kid’s movies. Joyful and beautiful to look at, it has more to say about life, love and the pursuit of happiness than most movies aimed at adults.
