(2014) (voices of Tom McGrath, Chris Miller) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Computer-Animated Action Comedy: A group of penguins who envision themselves as covert operatives must contend with an octopus who has an axe to grind with them from the past.
- Ten years ago, penguins Skipper (voice of TOM McGRATH), Kowalski (voice of CHRIS MILLER) and Rico (voice of CONRAD VERNON) saved the egg holding Private (voice of CHRISTOPHER KNIGHTS) from some hungry seals and they've been a tight knit group of self-professed covert operatives ever since. Unbeknownst to them, years ago they stole the thunder of former zoo favorite Dave the Octopus (voice of (JOHN MALKOVICH) and he's never lived that down. In fact, he's developed a solution he's called the Medusa serum that he intends to use on them and all other penguins to change and thus render them unappealing to humans for the rest of time.
Luckily for the penguins, the North Wind rescue team -- headed by a wolf known only as Classified (voice of BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH) who has the assistant of his right-hand bear, Corporal (voice of PETER STORMARE), the angry seal known as Short Fuse (voice of KEN JEONG), and the comely owl Eva (voice of ANNET MAHENDRU) -- have arrived to help them from Dave and his team of henchmen octopi. With him kidnapping penguins from all around the world, it's a race against time for the uneasily combined teams under Skipper and Classified to see if they can stop him before he succeeds.
