The Guardian
There are some nice images of the teeming penguin population, and great fun to be had witnessing the love life, and indeed sex life, of penguins. It does have to be said, though, there is a fair bit of Disneyfication going on.

It’s not as epic as "March Of The Penguins," or as stunning as the BBC’s usual slo-mo nature porn – but with nary an animated tap dance in sight, it’s still king of the 3D penguins.

Time Out London
There’s little we haven’t seen before, including farting elephant seals.

The 3D photography is shallow and muddy, although a David Attenborough voiceover helps sustain interest.
30
The inherent cinematic potential of one of nature's cutest animals rescues the film from being a total waste of time.
30
Where Attenborough's script lent an air of dignity to the shorter film, Allen's reading of Philip LaZebnik's cutesy narration has a canned feel, and is unlikely to connect with viewers too young to appreciate cliched humor about the joys of bachelorhood versus the duties of parenting.

Village Voice
The dull Adventures of the Penguin King is definitely the laziest of the waddle-coms to win theatrical release.
