I wasn’t the world’s biggest fan of ‘Happy Feet’, which had many good qualities but got bogged down by its ecological message (worthy though it was). The sequel still tries to tell too many stories, and winds up being a long string of dramatic climaxes, but it also plays to the first movie’s strengths: music, dance, and dramatic staging on an enormous canvas. (It’s even more impressive in IMAX 3-D, as I viewed it.) The end result may not win any prizes for narrative but it’s consistently entertaining, and a feast for the eyes.
