Reviews: Penguins (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: This franchise’s heart is in the right place, a percentage of first week ticket sales benefitting each film’s subject, but “Born in China” excepted, it’s like DisneyNature has hired Vermeer to illustrate books for three year-olds.
  • Courtney Howard @ Variety
    • Excerpt: Instead of bombarding the audience with heavy scientific terminology, it lets a poignant narrative unspool – one with a hugely entertaining underdog hero’s journey.
  • Dan Lybarger @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
    • Excerpt: Antarctica may be remote and fearsome, but Fothergill and Wilson prove that calling it a frozen wasteland is grossly inaccurate.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Penguins may cover some familiar ground, but it’s still exquisite to look at.
  • Frank Ochieng @ ScreenAnarchy
    • Excerpt: So yes…birds of a feather certainly flock together in this nature-oriented gem. Thoroughly enjoyable and heart-warming, Disneynature Penguins has embracing animal magnetism for all the right kind of festive reasons.
  • [New] | Don Shanahan @ Every Movie Has a Lesson
    • Excerpt: High and low, dry and wet, close and far, and through every blizzard in between, Penguins presents this apprehensive newbie with education and entertainment combined together.
