"Based on the groundbreaking revelation that surfing was actually invented by penguins. In the film, a documentary crew will take audiences behind the scenes and onto the waves during the most competitive, heartbreaking and dangerous display of surfing known to man, the Penguin World Surfing Championship." — Yahoo Movies
I didn't even bother watching the film on the big screen because I was thinking that this is just another penguin movie and that it had senseless hip-hop contents… and I am SOOOOOOOO disappointed for thinking that way!
I watched it on HBO and it was really funny! I even bought a DVD copy and I can't stop laughing even after watching it several times! OMG! Cody has that teenage angst, Geek has the mentor's touch and Joe — well, he's one oblivious yet totally radical chicken! LoL!
It's rendered as a mocumentary so it made me think that I was watching those reality TV shows I learned to love. Everything looked spontaneous and I was very impressed of the voice actors (and the animators!).
The CGI is also AWESOME especially the waves~ Actually, I was pondering if they mixed the graphics with real photographs and videos. I'm not certain but it's so cool! The CGI can even tantamount or surpass Finding Nemo's!
The OST is also composed of alternative songs I love!
Truly unique from other 3D animation films I've seen in the past.
I give it :
