March of the Penguins (2005)

I saw La Marche de l’empereur (2005) last weekend and it wasn’t bad. I found it a little slow at times but the penguins will amaze you. The footage is great and it helps that Morgan Freeman is doing the voiceover narration.

I don’t know how the editors and producers resisted the urge to use some hip hop music while the penguins marched and bobbed their heads. Now that would have been cool. Instead the filmmakers played it safe and gave us a traditional film score.

I think the reason that this film is doing so well at the box office is because there isn’t anything else worth seeing in the theatre. Dukes of Hazzard anyone?
