Much like the recent cartoon sequels it's not as good as the original and it's more adult then needed. I say B-.

"If you want it, you must will it. If you will it, it will be yours." When Mumble's (Wood) son Erik begins to question if he has talent or not he meets Ramon (Williams) and the amazing flying penguin Sven. When Erik's dream is to fly Mumble tries ways to let him know that he can't fly. After an event occurs that causes an iceberg to trap the rest of the penguin clan it is up to Mumble, Ramon and the rest of the group to save them all. I liked the first one but was never that crazy about watching it again. My favorite part was Robin Williams (he is great in pretty much everything though) and the music was great. Like most cartoons lately it got a sequel (weather they need one or not). This one once again falls into the same category as the rest of the latest cartoon sequels. They try to add a more grown up story and focus less on what made the first one so fun to watch. This is a good movie for kids but there is something missing to make it as good as the first one. I do have to say that the Krill played by Brad Pitt & Matt Damon far and away stole the movie and was the only part I really enjoyed. Overall, not a bad movie but it's missing all the stuff that made the first one fun to watch. My kids liked it but started to get bored towards the end. I give it a B-. My kids give it an A
