Penguins – Spy in the Huddle Blu-Ray review

“Behind their feisty charm lies an amazing character” begins David Tennant’s comforting introduction to the 3 hour penguin-fest of Penguins – Spy in the Huddle which has been “filmed as never before” using a whole range of ingenious technologies and clever camouflaging.

He’s taken on quite a challenge here as this ground has been well and truly trodden by the epic, and nearly 8 year old, March of the Penguins which had the deep, warm tones of Morgan Freeman narrating the Emperor Penguins challenging Antarctic struggle and which picked up an Oscar for Best Documentary in »
