Don't show this to children. Please.
30 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Twas the night before Christmas, and I sat down to watch this £1 DVD with two younger siblings. Straight away I had a bad feeling about this, mainly because the cover had a picture of a penguin with a hairstyle. Penguins don't have blonde ringlets. Such an abomination shouldn't exist.

Unfortunately, the bad character design was only the first of my worries. I know this is a film for kids and all, but the plot barely makes sense, with sinister oligarchs, terrorist pirates (really), and magical "flying dust". The animation is hilariously bad, with characters clipping through the scenery and each other. The dialogue is at best perfunctory, and the musical pieces literally made me sob with horror.

Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of this film is the slow dawning realisation that mankind appears to be, with the exception of Saint Nicholas, extinct. The penny drops and you realise you're being shown a nightmarish vision of a post-apocalyptic world where mutant penguins with stupid hair have created a fascist monarchy on the south pole. And pirates have plastic explosives or something, I dunno. It really didn't make much sense.
